NAVA Gamer's Gathering, October 29: "Halloween Begins"

NAVA = North Atlantic Videogame Aficionados. This is a FREE event bringing gamers together for competition, trading, and chatter.

Previously at NAVA...
- We celebrated the FIFTY YEAR anniversary of videogames by unleashing a barrage of PONG systems on our visitors, including a dedicated Odyssey collection.
- The 6PM tournament was PONG, won by Smash Bry, who did not miss the ball as much as his competition, earning him a cool $20 gift certificate.
- The arcade challenge was ARKANOID. Our high score winner was Aristotle who bounced his way to 37,780 and earned the day's high score challenge and a $20 gift certificate.
- Gamers, collectors and friends shared their recent adventures and sold or traded their goods.

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.

As always, there will be game systems set up around the store for everyone to play, featuring this month's theme!

Tournament! Halloween is known for its killers... do YOU have the Killer Instinct? Let's find out. We're going with N64 KILLER INSTINCT GOLD, head to head! Who among NAVA members has the best instincts?? 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.

Arcade challenge! Let's play SPLATTERHOUSE. 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.

Remember, feel free to bring a box or two of your trade goodies. We'll help you administer sales and get you set up somewhere in the store to sell your goods. NAVA is a time for trading! Also, if you have a Digital Press or NAVA t-shirt, wear them for a for an additional 5% discount on our already low-low prices Image removed. If you don't have a Digital Press t-shirt, ask us how to buy one while you're here. It's NAVA time, people!
