Sat July 19 at 9:00 PM, 256's House
Old Mill Station, Toronto, ON M8X, Canada (Map & Directions)
I'm having a small but cutthroat NES/SNES tournament at my house near Old Mill station tomorrow night. We'll be playing games chosen at random from the entire NES/SNES catalogue (emulated on a hacked Wii with Classic Controllers). We'd welcome a few more participants.
Comment or Memail me if you want to participate, and I'll provide details and directions. The entry fee is ~750ml of very nice beer or very cheap wine. This will form a prize pool to be split between first and second place.

If I were anywhere near there I'd be game. I'm not anywhere near there, but will be in spirit. (It's because I know Mordenkainen's Etherial Game System.) Have fun you guys.

I'll be sure to post an after action report, don't worry.

I noticed! I hope you all have a blast! I wasn't looking at IRL when I scheduled tonight with my friends a few weeks ago.

The Seed Round was played on Tetris, after which the players were split into two groups for four games of random NES/SNES games.

Group A played:
1. Super Bases Loaded 3: License to Steal
2. T2: The Arcade Game
3. Joe & Mac
4. Tiny Toon Adventures: Wacky Sports Challenge

Group B Played:
1. Newman/Haas IndyCar featuring Nigel Mansell
2. Karate Champ
3. Faceball 2000
4. Dyno Warz

After four rounds, the winner of each group faced off in the final, a best two out of three match featuring games chosen by the competitors.

The first two rounds were Mega Man X and Pilotwings, in which each finalist took one win. So it all came down to a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time showdown.

All in all, a very good time.
