Previously at NAVA...
- In our last episode, attendees played the beat-em ups of our generation like Double Dragon, Final Fight and Streets of Rage.
- The arcade game challenge was Atari's "Guardians of The Hood".. Chris A put up the high score of the day and walked away with a cool $20.
- The 6PM tournament was "TMNT IV Turtles In Time" on Super NES. Our new local champion is Mike R!
- Games and systems traded hands between attendees who brought their own trade boxes.

In This Month's NAVA: Get ready for some seriously SQUARE pixels! Game systems will be set up around the whole store highlighting games that may not look beautiful, but they're super fun to play!

Arcade challenge! We couldn't think of anything more SQUARE than Exidy's 1980 arcade gem TARG. 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. 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.

Tournament! One of the greatest head-to-head games of all time that also happens to be extremely SQUARE is the Atari 2600 classic OUTLAW. I promise if you've never played this game that it will raise your stress level and make you sweat. Practice your gunslinging skills now! Who among NAVA members has the best skills? Let's find out. Sign-ups begin at 3pm, the tournament starts after 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. It's NAVA time!
