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.

If if you are able to bring any of the above items, please come 30-45 minutes early to help setup.

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

 

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!

Update: a majority of the guys wanted to have an entry fee and payout so we will charge $20.

It will be well worth it.  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)

 

Let me know if you have any questions.

I'll be out of town April 29 like I said - but let me know if you have another date over the summer and I am totally in. 100%. Big family trip planned to Disney! 

Be sure to spread the word about the tourny as well at your event! Thanks! Tecmo Tom

We will be changing the date to the following Saturday, May 6th - due to a scheduling conflict with the venue.  All other details will remain the same. I will reach out to everyone who previously registered to make sure they are aware and will retain their spot unless they tell me otherwise.  If you haven't registered and May 6th works for you, we would love to have you join us!

Absolutely! Please PM me with your name and contact info (email and/or cell) and I will add you to the list. We would love to have you join us and hopefully this can be a spring board for Tecmo Cleveland :) Any equipment you are able to bring would be a huge help as well.

Can you explain exactly what you mean here?  I'm a little confused.  Can you give an example?

Sure! In round one all matchups are random... round 2 people with 1-0 records and 0-1 play each other... round 3 2-0 play each other 1-1, 0-2, etc.  After 4 rounds, everyone makes the bracket but draft position is determined by overall record then point differential.

 

This allows players of similar skill to face off and everyone gets a lot of meaningful games. This will be similar to the Detroit Kumite rules.

 

Let me know of you have any other questions.

When you say teams will be drafted, do you mean a bad player will get to play as eagles or raiders or something like that?

Short answer: No. Players with poor records will get a lower draft choice.

 

Long answer: Players with the best records after the initial rounds will draft first. For example a player who finished 4-0 gets first choice of any team except 49ers, Giants, Bills and Oilers. Then the next best record picks (point differential is used if players have the same records to determine order). So to answer your question, a team that goes 0-4 will pick 15th or 16th as opposed to 1st or 2nd. If a player wins in the bracket round they can elect to keep their team or steal their opponent's team.

The preliminary's sound very important in this kind of tournament since it nets you an advantage in the main tournament play.  During preliminary's are the matchups/teams decided by the usual coin toss.  Winner of toss names matchup, loser of toss picks team or player 1?

 

Do all prelims players advance to the main tournament even if they go 0-4?

 

For the main tournament, are you saying that the best record player gets to pick a team first and can take that team through the entire bracket if he wants?

For example let's say "Bob" gets best record.  He picks Eagles.  He uses Eagles in every matchup he feels they will win.  Only time he does not use them is when he plays "Jim" who has raiders.  "Bob" opts to take the raiders that round and its allowed since he has a better record than Jim.

 

I have never followed or watched the Kumite so if I am misinterpreting your description, please let me know.

      View File Celebrities Tecmo Super Bowl **Incomplete **
      This is a Tecmo Super Bowl Rom, where I added celebrities. All of them (nearly) are from their Home Town, and I will be adding more in the future. There isn't much, maybe 20. My Goal is to eventually have a celebrity at every position. Here's some Notable Celebs I added: 
      -Eminem
      - Prince
      -Donald Trump
      -Kanye West
      -John F. Kennedy
      -Tupac
      Some Skin Colors are not right, I will change that in the future!

                                                       PORTLAND, OREGON                                               
       
      The return to the Rose City. This time bigger, stronger, BOLDER.
       
      Logic behind the name:
       
      1) J.J. Birden is a Tecmo Legend that hailed from NE Portland and starred for the Oregon Ducks
      2) Portland Tecmo Legend Tailback King constantly struggles with his desire to compete within the structure of Tecmo Tournaments and his need to honor #39 Johnny J for the Cards. It's a burden for him, or a Birden if you will.
      3) Winning a game cause of some JJ (jumping jackass) bullshit leaves the winning player a burden, which often results in the Tecmo Gods evening things out later
       
      Things to look forward to in this tournament:
       
      1) Momentum carried over from Johnny Johnson in the Beaver, which had an endless amount of memorable matchups and introduced us to several new players on the scene.
      2) Co-Organization from Portland native and reigning Seattle champ Ptitteri, who has been organizing a small Portland Tecmo tourney for several years.
      3) The further evolution of TBK, who continues to mold his game beyond relying on Johnny Johnson's hidden stats.
      4) Gripsmoke not boning out.
      5) Some good-ass fucking microbrew FLOWIN
      6) The usual Pacific Northwest Tecmo shenanigans
       
      All we have to announce at this time is that the DATE will be December 9th and it will be in Bridgetown proper, so clear your schedule and peep the details as they materialize. Chime in on the BOARD to get your name on the LIST.
       
      1. D.T. (The Boss)
      2. Ptitteri (The Enforcer)
      3. Gripsmoke (The OG)
      4. TBK (The King)
      5. WHO ELSE?
