Where do I start? I accidentally found your website. I had just finish watching the Family Guy episode. It was sitting in my DVR for a long time. For nostalgic purpose I googled Tecmo Bowl and the site popped up. It has been so long since I have played the game. I just remember when I called the offense play and all of the sudden the defensive player blow by my offensive lineman and he landed on the other side of the screen and I had to get rid of the ball quickly. Most of the time I was sacked.

 

Hope to meet you all someday.  I have so much to read.

 

Have fun.

 

Welcome and glad you found us! There is a lot to take in here. I would suggest reading through this guide that @Maynard_G_Krebs made first: 

 

 

From there, click this link and make this your default forum filter -http://tecmobowl.org/discover/16/ - If/when you are ready for leagues, we can refilter for you.

Hey I'm Matt.  I have recently gotten into TSB as part of an overall NES kick. I kept my console from when I was 4 years old and have been buying up games I missed out on, including TSB or basically anything that wasnt Mario or TMNT. Historically I haven't been into pro football or sports games (a coworker gave me this nickname and I didn't know who it came from at the time) but TSB just has dat je ne sais quoi. When I played it, I just knew. Now I'm old enough with my own place & free time to watch sports on TV so I have been trying to catch up.

 

I lurk here a lot reading up on the game (Mort strategies and tournament vids etc)& ordered a 2017 cart so I thought I might as well register in case I feel like saying something. I'm a noob but if anyone else from the land of the Crimson Tide wants to play sometime , hit me up. I would hate to keep these carts to myself forever.

Welcome...unfortunately the tournament scene down your way is pretty non-existent but there are a few regulars down in the South.

Hey Y'all. It's good to be a part of the club!!!!

 

I'm always looking for new people to play Tecmo with outside of the local crew of my friends and I here in Redmond, WA. It looks like I just missed the tourney in Centralia, WA a few months back but I'll make sure to look for that in the future. I've never played in a competitive or structured tournament, but I'd love to. I was well aware of the large tourney in Madison each year and would try to follow along remotely but unfortunately with work/family I was never able to make it out their. 

 

Here's a bit about me.....Love the competition and nostalgia that only a solid game of Super Tecmo Bowl can bring. Also a big fan of other classic NES games such as RBI Baseball, Blades of Steel, Jordan vs. Bird, Marble Madness, Off Road, R.C. Pro-AM, Tiger-Heli, Punch Out!!, Duck Hunt. I'm a HUGE Seattle Sports fan and love sports trivia. Married and have 3 kids (already introduced Tecmo). Like to spend time hunting & fishing.

 

I look forward to hopefully meeting some of you in person in the future.

 

Cheers,

SuperSonics

Hi everyone.  I'm a 37 year old IT professional and aspiring game designer.  I recently got back into playing the NES and through sheer luck found this site!  I was completely blown away at the community and ROM hacks that you guys have done/built here and wanted to join up.

 

Anyhow, I look forward to getting to know everyone and playing some updated TSB!

Hello Bowl-ers! 

My name is Jason, and I'm a Tecmo-holic. CaptHawk is my most used online gaming handle, so I went with that in case i run into a familiar "face" here. I'm from the west side of MI, so yeah, LOOOOONNNGGGG suffering Lions fan here.

Back in '14, I had grown weary of PC gaming. I felt a longing for the days of yore, and most especially for my beloved TSB! I never really got into Madden; it's okay, but it's no TSB. I decided to see if anyone had created a console themed website , and was delighted at how many sites there are where one can play old console classics in simple flash online. My original search was for TSB, and this lead me to drummer's amazing TSB 2k2 (SNES) hack. I was blown away, as it simply hadn't occurred to me that one could hack SNES. Well, the obvious then happened... if there was a 2k2.... why not a 2k14?

Back to google! And lo, onto tecmobowl.org! (Thank you, Knobbe!)

I registered, thinking I had to to play anything, and played the 2k14 TSB (NES) that the site had as a flash option. Now, nothing against  NES, but SNES has an "S" for a reason, dammit! I was a teen when TSb (NES) came out, so I literally grew up with the Tecmos. I still vividly remember the excitement of SNES/GEN coming out with TSB for their respective platforms. Touchbacks! In game play changing! KRs with Prime...Time...Prime...Time...or beast Rod "Goodbye Coverage" Woodson. At any rate, that feeling must have stuck with me ll these years, because I just can't get into NES like I do SNES Tecmo. Back in '14, I don't believe this site had done much with SNES TSB, or at least I couldn't find it. So, I stuck with 2k2 and original TSB for SNES that I could play online for when I needed that TSB fix.

Fast forward to the last month or so. I decided to revisit tecmobowl.org, as it's cool as hell what you have accomplished here, notwithstanding my SNES bias. Oh, sweet Junior Seau up in heaven! I couldn't believe all the cool ass ROMs for SNES Tecmo-ing now available! Legends, 90's, 00's, '77, '84, 15-16 and 15-16 updated, 8-bit updated...not to mention the TSBIII ROMs I haven't even touched. (I will; it's just I found TSB II and III to be a letdown when they were originally released back in the day.) So, Baron Von Lector, cowboyschamps, qbvikings and Mr.NFL... a sincere and heartfelt thank you is in order!

After my downloading spree, I returned to this site to, well, lurk a bit. Basically to see if I wanted to throw my helmet on the field, as it were: were people here cool, or no? So, I've perused the Forums quite a bit, and by virtue of this post, I hereby proclaim: y'all are cool as hell! Oh, sure, there are a couple of "my helmet is bigger than your helmet" d-bags, but i like that they get put in their place, and I even more like no-one gets banned by some pissy mod.

For now, I play on my PC using the keyboard. I might get a controller, but I don't really miss it, it didn't take long to get the feel of Tecmo on keys. I'm not sure if I'll play online or participate in tournaments, but regardless I wanted to introduce myself, give props and join the community.

Welcome! Glad you are back and think we're cool bros. Any Tecmo player is a friend of mine!

 

Where are you from? Interested in playing in a tourney ever? (Typically, NES.)

Thanks, davemurray! If you read chapter one of my novel...I mean, post lol,  you'll see the answers to your questions! But just in case you don't love novels, I'm Jason, from Holland, Michigan. Tourney(s) sound intense! I do like NES, I just prefer SNES, so I'm interested. But honestly probably not much of a match as I haven't played a MAN v. MAN in ages, I'm playing on keys etc.  

Question: are all tourneys live action, or are tourneys also held over the interwebs?

Geez. I feel like an idiot. Too fast scrolling on the phone for novels... I definitely did not read west side of MI and the last paragraph was cut off. 0_o #FAIL

Hi everyone!! So I built my own Raspberry Pi to do some retro gaming and stumbled across the site by accident looking for rom files, I think I'm in love!!! Already downloaded the game, it is awesome, makes me feel like a kid again! Can't give enough thanks for this, my kids are staring at me as I play this instead of the Xbox or any other games we have, lol!! Keep up the good work, anywhere we can make donations to the project or anything? Thanks again!
