Mario Kart 8 Tournament, July 17th: Friday night Fisticuffs
Friday Night Fisticuffs is our monthly tournament we hold every Friday mid-way through the month, where we have a competition, games set up to play, and most importantly CASH PRIZES!
At our last tournament…
-We had our first tournament in years and we decided to go all out with a Super Smash Bros. for WiiU Tournament, and got a little over our heads.
-We had over one hundred people sign up for the tournament which made the cash prize for first place over $200! Unfortunately the tournament went on for far too long, which should never happen again.
See it all in our photo gallery section at the store's website and feel free to comment!
At this month’s tournament: We had a suggestion box out for last month’s tournament and the most requested tournament was Mario Kart 8, so that’s what we’re having! For those of you at last month’s tournament you may remember how long the tournament went for so we are listening and we are changing things for this one. For one this tournament is starting at 6 PM, registration will begin at 4 PM. Also this tournament will have a 64 player limit so if you want to guarantee a spot in the tournament make sure you get here before everyone else does! Mario Kart 8 also doesn’t last as long as Super Smash Bros. so we won’t have a tournament that goes past midnight like we did last time. Just like last time though there will be a $5 entry fee and the top 3 players will receive CASH PRIZES, more detail about the tournament will be listed below. There will also be consoles set up around the store such as last time for casual play for spectators or competitors to play as they wait for their match or for the tournament to begin.
