NAVA Gamer's Gathering, December 27th: "The Re-Gifting Season 2014"
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 celebrated the 20th anniversary of Donkey Kong Country with Donkey Konga, Diddy Kong Racing, and bananas. Lots and lots of bananas!
- The tournament was a high score challenge on Donkey Kong Tournament Edition and the arcade challenge was Crazy Kong.
- 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's NAVA: 'Tis the season for RE-GIFTING! This month instead of the 6PM tournament we're giving you the opportunity to re-wrap an old gift and get a new one in exchange! Simply bring any new or at least UNUSED videogame-related item worth $20 or more gift-wrapped. We'll log you in when you arrive and put it under our tree. Everyone who contributes gets someone else's gift in exchange. At 6PM we'll unwrap the gifts, it's that easy. We've had lots of great stories from this event in the past. Be a part of it and join the fun!
Arcade challenge! This NAVA we try and take the winter season head on by conquering icy, Topi-riddled mountains in Nintendo's VS. Ice Climbers! Help Popo and Nana cope with being kicked off the Super Smash Brother's roster by jumping up icy platforms, bonking Topi's on the head, and collecting vegetables. 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!
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!
