-Many Amiibos were unwrapped during the event, along with a large box containing a smaller box, which contained an even smaller box, and so on until the final gift of a $25 Gift Certificate to Digital Press Videogames was un-wrapped!
- The arcade challenge was Vs. Ice Climber and the winner was Christian T. who walked away with a $20 prize.
- Games and systems traded hands between attendees who brought their own trade boxes.

This Month's NAVA: We’re starting the new year off with a BOOM! All the games you’ll see at this NAVA will have explosions in them, the more unnecessary the better! You’ll see things like Vectorman blasting his way towards Warhead, contestants on Smash TV blowing each other away in front of a live studio audience, the Mad Bomber dropping bombs into water buckets, and of course Bomberman.
Arcade challenge! What genre has more explosions than shoot ‘em ups? And what better shoot ‘em up then Taito’s Truxton! Blast your way through Dogurava’s forces and quell the alien invasion. 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 wouldn’t have a boom NAVA without Bomberman, so for this month’s tournament we’re playing Bomberman Party Edition for the PlayStation! Be the last Bomberman un-exploded and win. 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!
