NAVA Gamer's Gathering, July 29th: "I Don't Wanna Work, I Wanna Bang On My Drum All Day!"
NAVA = North Atlantic Videogame Aficionados. This is a FREE event bringing gamers together for competition, trading, and chatter.
Previously at NAVA...
- In our last episode, we payed homage to the great fighting game franchises. Yet no one attendee was harmed in the making of this event.
- The 6pm tournament was Mortal Kombat Trilogy for N64. Our champion was Smash Bry. He FINISHED.. HIM. AND HER. AND EVERYONE.
- The arcade challenge was King of Fighters 2001. Rob K proved to be the toughest player around with 440,100 points, earning the respect and admiration of gamers everywhere. Also $20.
- Games and systems traded hands between attendees who brought their own trade boxes.

In This Month's NAVA: You don't want to work, you want to bang on de drum all day! And you shall, at this percussion-friendly event, where we will have GameCube Bongos aplenty. Donkey Konga! Jungle Beat! Donkey Konga 2! Donkey Konga 3? YES! And as a side bonus, TAIKO DRUM MASTER. There will be a rhythm fever pitch at Digital Press this NAVA. Do not miss it.
Arcade challenge! In olden times, games didn't even have buttons to mash. Since we will be bongo'ing all day long, let's compete for the high score in 1983's buttonless "Bongo" by Jet. 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! Also if you have won last month’s arcade challenge you are no eligible to win this month’s challenge.
Tournament! Bring your tribal self to this event because your rhythmic skills will be put to the test in a head to head round robin Donkey Konga tournament. Sign-ups begin at 3pm, the tournament starts around 6pm and its 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!
