Super Smash Bros. Melee Tournament, October 23rd

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…
-It was our “Back to Smash” tournament and we had our second Super Smash Bros. for WiiU tournament, and this time it was a lot shorter!
-With a player limit of 64 players and 10 WiiU systems going the tournament went smoothly and ended by midnight.
-The Amiibo tournament went a bit longer than expected because of the large turnout for it but in the end Prototype’s Amiibo; Septar III won!
-As for the regular tournament Angel C took first place and walked away with his prize and earned his name on our "Wall of Fame"!
