Columbus, OH - 02/25/17 - Driven Tecmo Bowl Tournament (Tecmo Bowl)

Recommended Posts

A friend sent this tournament to me. It is the original Tecmo Bowl so I probably won't be attending but thought I'd share.

 

Nice prizes for the winner (32" Smart TV & NES Classic). You can read about it/sign up here:

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.

      Does anyone have access to the Tecmo Bowl Kickoff instruction manual?
       
      I can't find any pdf's or anything through google.

      My son recently bought Madden 16 for Xbox One.  It's my first time playing it since my super Nintendo days.  I have to say the passing is really good and enjoyable.  Having a different button associated with different receivers makes alot more sense.  But, the running still feels bad.  It feels plastic-ee and laggy.  Switching directions takes too long and takes the fun out of it.
      Has anyone else gotten a taste of the dark side (newer Maddens)?  If so, what are your thoughts?

      Will Koei Tecmo ever release a new version of this game for PC, Xbox or playstation?  Or is that impossible because Madden has a monopoly on the NFL license?
      One can always dream...maybe they can release a new updated game, with updated graphics and mechanics and just have an easy way to update rosters and plug in pics for the helmets?  So, people could easily put in the new NFL roster without having Koei Tecmo pay for it or deal with it?

      I absolutely love this version!  Old legends plus new great players, incredible concept!  There was some serious love put into this edition.  This is the greatest version of the game I've ever played.  All my friends I've shown this to, love it.  But the first thing they ask when we play it is "Where's Bo Jackson"?
      I don't understand why he's left out.  He was the great player in the original Tecmo Bowl.  Is he a hidden player maybe?
