NAVA Gamer's Gathering, October 27th: "Cosplay October"
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 celebrated "back to school". Rockstar's "Bully", American Technos "River City Ransom" and a Sega Pico were among the game setups!
- The arcade game challenge was Mikie. Aristotle bounced the most digital classmates and took home the $20 prize.
- At 6pm we hosted a Rival Schools tournament. Aristotle won this one too, smashing all competitors for the championship!
- 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!
In This Month's NAVA: It will be almost Halloween when NAVA presents itself so what better way to warm up your costume and try to win a prize?! BE IN COSTUME at 6pm when our all-star judging panel votes on the top three costumes and a special "most original" category, all for great prizes! Simply being IN COSTUME gets you 15% off of all used merchandise in the store all day long. NOTE: "IN COSTUME" means an actual costume. Showing up in a baseball cap claiming to be "a baseball player" or with 5 o'clock shadow claiming to be "a bum" or doing BOTH claiming to be "Joe Santulli" will not qualify.
SPECIAL EVENT: Let's try something. Let's see how many Sonic & Knuckles cartridges we can stack one on top of the other and actually get the game to work! Digital Press and Chris Grant present: "Sonic & Knuckles & Knuckles & Knuckles & Knuckles & Knuckles..."! We have a starting lot of over 20 cartridges and invite YOU to participate. LOAN your Sonic & Knuckles cartridge to this event and get a FREE Digital Press t-shirt and 25% off of the purchase of any game in the store. Join us in this collaborative effort!
Arcade challenge! Time to get someone up on our brand new arcade high score board! Of the proposed arcade challenges, the scariest by far is Wizard of Wor. Single player only, nab a few wizards and you'll find yourself on our champions board. In addition, be the best at this 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 not eligible to win this month’s challenge.
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. It's NAVA time!
