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


Previously at NAVA...

- We celebrated movies represented through videogames. Popcorn not included!

- The 6pm tournament was a four player bracket playing N64 GoldenEye 007. Our winner Joe Layton, not using Oddjob or Golden Guns, won the $20 gift certificate.

- The arcade challenge was ROBOCOP 2. The high score was 205,000 scored by Frank The Tank, earning him the coveted house champion $20 gift certificate.

- Gamers, collectors and friends shared their recent adventures and sold or traded their goods.


In This Month's NAVA: LISSEN UP, YOU PENCIL-NECK GEEKS. Wrestling has been a big tradition in videogames. Did you know that the first wrestling videogame was TAG TEAM WRESTLING, released by Data East for arcades in 1983? The first HOME wrestling videogame was PRO WRESTLING by Nintendo? Originally released in Japan in 1986, the game would come to the US in early 1987 as a black box game! We're going to celebrate wrestling's rich history in the world of videogames all over the store!


Arcade Challenge: WHATCHA GONNA DO BROTHER, WHEN THE HOUSE CHAMPION RUNS WILD ON YOU? Arcade videogaming doesn't have the wild traditions that home gamers got, but there are a few great ones and one of the best is Capcom's 1993 hit SATURDAY NIGHT SLAM MASTERS. This game even found a home console release on the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo. 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.


6PM Tournament: DO YOU SMELL WHAT NAVA IS COOKING? You may know the Nintendo classic WWF NO MERCY, but to keep the tournament moving along quickly we're going to make all of the matches up to the final a TAG TEAM match. AND in true Vince McMahon fashion, "Mr. Santulli" will assign the teams! The winning team players will each walk away with $10 gift certificates, but in order to crown an intercontinental champion, we're going to have both members of the tag team square off against one another for an additional $10 gift certificate! Who will prove to be the top spy? 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. It's NAVA time, people! Let us all GAME ON.
