I didn't get around to posting about this tourney due to the long drive back to Omaha, and my Tecmo/RBI event the following weekend.  Of the 5 straight Tecmo Bowl tournaments I've won, this was by far the easiest.  They had a field of 32 players, and they used 8 NES mini systems.  Ran very well, and even got free food!  Pizza and chicken sandwhiches.  I was the only 1 of the Big 4 in attendance, so it was going to take a monumental effort from someone off the street to win this.  The closest anyone came to beating me was 28-6 in the semi-final game.  Won the title game 27-0, and shut it down in the 4th qtr.  1st place was a 32" vizio and a NES mini.  

 

Here's a pic of me with Roy Hall, the Driven foundation president.  Hall played in the NFL for a couple years with Indy and Detroit.

This is supposed to be an annual deal.  Hall is hoping to increase the turnout.  I think with their reach in the Columbus area, they can push this to perhaps 40-48 players.

I played a guy in exhibition shortly before the tourney started and won 28-0.  I thought his game was pretty decent and complimented on the stuff he did well.  I think that was message enough to the field.  He ended up reaching the championship game against me.  He was clearly one of the top players from the field, and I think he knew that, or was confident about his game coming in.  He had talked me up during the event, and the fact that I easily handled him really set the tone for the whole event.

      If if you are able to bring any of the above items, please come 30-45 minutes early to help setup.
      Format will be informal, decided the day of the event and depend on number of participants and systems available.
       
      We guarantee the following: 
      - At least 4 rounds of preliminary seeding where players with like records face off each round
      - A single or double elimination bracket where teams will be drafted based on seeding
      - (SF, GIA, BUF, HOU excluded from the draft)
      - If you win in the bracket round you can keep your team or swap teams with your opponent
      - Payouts to the top 4 finishers ($160. $80, $40, $20 if we get 16 guys)
       
      This format allows everyone to play a lot of meaningful games and is extremely fair and laid back
       
      If time permits, we will also have a single or double elimination NFL Blitz 2000 side tournament on N64.
       
      Participants are welcome and encouraged to order from the menu and BYOB. I have eaten there a number of times and everything is great - the dough is homemade every day and they make awesome pizza (I also love the JoJos) below is a link to the menu. Hope to see you there!

      Hi, anyone seen a good place with a comprehensive catalog of TSB ROM versions (different years, etc)?
       
      Might have someone mod a NES Classic Mini and want to pimp it with a good selection of TSB versions.
        
      ---------------------------------
      I've seen:
      1) This url (TecmoBowl.org "ROMs by year") has a few options...
      2) ... and TecmoSB.com (clicky) has a link for "TSB Roms Collection <=== last update: 11/16/2014."  I haven't been able to open this one, but it appears to have so many ROMs, that some years have 5-10+ versions.  
      ---------------------------------
       
      Figured by now, someone may have already edited a good catalog list somewhere.  nbd if not.

      When I was at the Detroit Kumite tournament last weekend, a number of players from the Cleveland area who I had never met before attended as well and we all had a great time!  Many of these guys already get together a few times a year to play casual Tecmo Super Bowl at various venues.     I collected emails and some cell phone numbers for players that wanted to provide one.  This post is to see who would be interested in getting together potentially quarterly to play Tecmo Super Bowl and perhaps consider doing a Fantasy Football League in the fall for anyone who enjoys both Tecmo and Fantasy Football and lives in or near Northeast Ohio.   If this is something that interests you, please message me and provide your email address and cell phone number, as I will be creating a text distribution group in addition to the email distribution list once we finalize the initial details.  If you could also let me know ideas for places to meet, how many systems, cartridges, controllers and TVs you would be willing to share with the group, that would also be helpful.   The idea is to simply get a group of great guys together semi regularly who enjoy both Tecmo Super Bowl and NFL football.   Thanks in advance for your consideration.  More to follow after I collect everyone's thoughts and responses.

      This is a virgin 28-team NES TSB ROM with one big change - 
       
      all DEFENSIVE PLAYS have been changed to the respective "BLITZ" for every play.  So, when you play it, no matter what, the defense comes at you like they picked your play.  In addition, the OFFENSIVE PLAYS were changed to use the actual play that it would run when the defense picks the offenses play, like Pass 1 Pro T Screen for instance.
       
      I went in and copied/pasted the "blitz" play for every play, so that every pick is a successful play-pick.  At the bottom of this post is a screenshot of the defensive bytes that were changed to the common blitz byte for every play variation.  
       
      In this picture, you can see that the RUNS use a Blitz Byte of 5B, 53, 57, 5F, 8F, or 99.    Pass play Blitz Bytes are 5F, BB, DA, and 22...that's right, there are ONLY 4 variations to a Pass-Play blitz! 
      Also, in this picture, The top-left starts with the 8 variations of Run Slot 1, Play 1.  It continues (left to right, top to bottom), 8 plays for each slot, 8 variations of each play, down to the very last Pass Slot 4, Play 8.
      Now, changing the defense is NOT ENOUGH - because the offense has 8 possible variations for any given play - so I had to go in and change all of the offensive plays to run the variation that it uses when the defense picks the offenses respective play (sorry, no picture for this).
       
      This ROM is made for the sole purpose of practicing responses to getting your play called!  (Note - this is mostly useful for practicing getting your Pass Play called.  
      Work on those timed taps!

      Have fun.
