NAVA Gamer's Gathering, October 25th: "October Cosplay 2K14"
NAVA = North Atlantic Videogame Aficionados. This is a FREE event bringing gamers together for competition, trading, and chatter.
Previously at NAVA...
- In last month's event, we went themeless in a casual gathering of gamers playing the games we love to play together: Smash Bros, Power Stone, Turtles IV and more.
- There was a "handsome challenge" that no one won.
- Games and systems traded hands between attendees who brought their own trade boxes.
See it all in our photo gallery section at the store's website and feel free to comment!
This month is cosplay month! As we once again approach the eve of all Hallows we will continue our traditional NAVA costume party/contest. Come dressed up to the event and you can take 15% off of any used merchandise in the store. We'll also choose the best costume of the day at 8pm for an additional $50. Same rules as past years: Only REAL costumes qualify. Showing up in a baseball cap claiming to be "a baseball player", or with 5 o'clock shadow claiming to be "a bum", or doing BOTH claiming to be Joe Santulli isn't going to be good enough. Around the store we'll have familiar monsterly franchises like Splatterhouse, Castlevania, Halloween 2600 and Zombies Ate My Neighbors. We're so scared!
Arcade challenge! Around Halloween we've always featured an arcade game with a spooky theme. We've probably done this before but does Ghouls 'n Ghosts ever get old? Be the best at the game on this one day by logging the highest score on our arcade cabinet by 9pm and win a nifty $20 gift certificate and possibly get your name added to the "House Champion" tournament plaque on the Wall of Fame just above the arcade section of the store. Arcade challenge games are set to FREE PLAY all day, but please remember to let everyone get a shot. If you get the high score, move on, and no hogging the cabinet!
Tournament! We didn't have an official tournament last month so we're going to dive right back with a one-on-one fighting game that fits the day's motif. It's Capcom's "Darkstalkers 3", currently the final game in the Darkstalkers/Vampire Savior franchise. Who is our best Demitri, Morrigan or Sasquatch? Let's find out. Sign-ups begin at 3pm, the tournament starts around 6pm and it's first-come, first-served in this FREE-to-join tournament.
Remember to get your trade boxes in order so we can all buy, sell and trade together. Wear your NAVA or Digital Press t-shirt for the maximum discount on store purchases. Also, bring your Nintendo 3DS to share street passes... it's NAVA time!
