NAVA Gamer's Gathering, June 24th "All Hail Street Fighter"
NAVA = North Atlantic Videogame Aficionados. This is a FREE event bringing gamers together for competition, trading, and chatter.
Previously at NAVA...
- Glen from "Glen's Retro Show" bedazzled attendees with his custom controllers, we played with a real Star Wars flight yoke, arcade quality spinners, and a light gun that works on LCD TV's!
- The arcade challenge was Atari's STAR WARS ARCADE Our high score winner earned the day's high score challenge and a $20 gift certificate.
- The 6pm tournament was the arcade version of WARLORDS. The player who defended his castle against all challengers was FRANK THE TANK!
- Gamers, collectors and friends shared their recent adventures and sold or traded their goods.
In This Month's NAVA: With the release of STREET FIGHTER VI, we felt the need to celebrate the entire franchise at this month's event. You'll find versions of Street Fighter everywhere, from the Super NES to the PS5. As always, our stations are set up for everyone to play for free all day long!
Arcade Challenge!: We're going all the way back to the start for this one. How many of us have mastered the techniques of the ORIGINAL 1987 Capcom game STREET FIGHTER? 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!: The reason we're dedicating the entire event to Street Fighter is tied to the recent release of Street Fighter VI, so what do you think we're going to feature as the tournament... it's STREET FIGHTER VI on the PS5! What NAVA attendee can outlast all opponents? 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, 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 If you don't have a Digital Press t-shirt, ask us how to buy one while you're here.
