Northeast Ohio Tecmo Quarterly Meetup Group

4 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

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.

Please let me know if you are able to bring any of the following:

-TVs

-NES Systems

-NES Controllers

-Tecmo Super Bowl Carts

-Extension cords

-Power Strips

 

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.

 

Most likely it will be some variant of the Detroit Kumite rules (TBD):

-Players with like records play each other for a few rounds

-Everyone advances to the bracket with a draft format excluding SF, NYG, BUF & HOU.   -Draft order based on records

 

This format allows everyone to play a lot of meaningful games and is extremely fair and laid back

 

At least one TV will be setup with DirectTV turned to the NFL Draft for those who want to watch and/or listen between games.

 

Chris a.k.a. Tecmo Ninja is the owner of the restaurant and has graciously agreed to make the Italian Garden the premier destination for the 2017 NFL Draft!  

 

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.

      ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
      Rules
      ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Game play rules ( See each Round Description in the Six pack )
      1. Except Round 4. No lurching with an  D.L. (defensive lineman) lurch is defined as trying to dive tackle or blitz the QB at the snap on a drop back pass or trying to use the same effect to break up a running play. Bumping the tackle is fine (on a up or down or backwards direction). Any other form of DL use is legal. The below video link shows what is illegal.
      2. W.R. or T.E.’s Cannot have run plays in playbook(except 4 reverse). However you may substitute an w.r./t.e. at rb2 slot as long they don't have a running play.players like Givins and Sanders are considered wr's.
      3. Playbook changes/lineup editing each pregame...
      4.‚ÄúOne Match-up Once‚ÄĚ Rule: The coin-flip winner can only select a particular matchup once throughout the entire tournament. For instance, if Player A wins the toss and selects Packers-Browns, Player A cannot call that exact match-up for the rest of the tournament. Player B, however, is free to select that match-up later in the tournament. SEE EACH ROUND FOR TEAM SELECTION IN THE FORMAT.
      5. TIES: In order to speed things up in Rounds 1 thru 6 if game ends tied it will be a tie in order to save time. HOWEVER IN Single elimination round NO GAME CAN END IN A TIE. IF A game is tied when regulation concludes, competitors will proceed to OT. All OT's will be 5-minute sudden death periods. If nobody scores in the first OT, the second OT will be only the first quarter in a new game. If the game goes to an 2nd O.T. you will alternate who gets the ball first (in the second o.t.). This process will be repeated until a winner emerges. So that one competitor does not start with the ball in every OT period, the receiving team (i.e. team that gets the ball first) shall alternate beginning with the second OT period.

      6.. Tournament Issues All issues will be settled by the tournament crew. Headed by Louis Buennagel, Francis Buennagel . (Others will be designated by gameday as seconds for when we are playing.) Report controller issues and any other issues AS SOON AS IT HAPPENS. We will use the warm-up session to test all controllers and equipment so hopefully everything works fine. Game freeze will be settled by playing out part or all of the game depending on circumstance... unless you cause a reset by your physical actions. The final decision is up to the tournament directors or those designated by the directors. All equipment loaned for the tourney will be tracked. You may use your own controller if it is standard but do not move the other controller from that station. Respect all equipment as if it was yours. Excessive misbehavior will result in your elimination from the tourney and all future events. We also will record a D.q. win on case by case situation ( if it happens early in the game it will be recorded as a 14 to 0 d.q. win)
      7. There MAY be 1 live streams on Twitch, twitch.tv/mort1237...Update we need someone to help us stream games!!!
      8. GAMBLING: There's been couple guys who made some side bets last year on H2H pickup games. Money on the wood to make the bet all good. No drama. make your rules clear before the game starts. Max wager is $20. No betting on your own tournament games your playing in. You may wager on live games that your not playing in either (IE MYnameisFlo).
      9. We have the right to change the format if needed.
      1o. Please mark and label all your equipment. So it isn't lost.                              
      11. A forfeit win   will be marked as  A14 to 0 win. Obviously if someone gives up when your up 28 to o then it will be counted as 28+ for margin of victory. The maximum differential of victory for any game is 28pts. IF  you win 35 to 3 it will marked as a 28 pt win for your differential.                        ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      This thread is for all of your NFL 2017-2018 season discussion. 
       
      There is no other way to start this thread. Everything else for Tom Brady is just gravy.

      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:
