    Personal highlights: LPGE as a whole was ridiculous and huge. Meeting new guys and seeing my brothers in Tecmo again after Madison. Cosplayers. Playing SFII in a VirtualBoy vs Regulator. Free Play Barcade on Friday night. Finding an In N Out and sharing Reg's, Ones' and Gats' first Double Double Animal Style with them. Introducing Gats to Mexican food. This meat is so good it doesn't even need ranch! Witnessing a Gats bowel movement so foul that I had to go the hotel lobby for 10 minutes. Game 1 of the finals had a ridiculous ending. Wow. This is why I do what I do. Legit esports moment there. Gatsisms are now a thing. This dude is so innocent it is hilarious. I love that he speaks his mind with no perceived judgement. It is awesome. True honesty. Receiving texts from Mort, Lou, JimSocks & Diaz all talking shiz and Mort dancing in a panther suit head. Great. Freaking. Weekend. Love you guys. Love each other. Lift your fellow man up.

    Top 10 Moments From Millard's Mayhem 2: #10: Everybody coming! This tourney couldn't of happened with all of you coming. You all really brought the Mayhem to the tourney. Hopefully you are all back next year. I have heard of or seen most everyone at the tourney but it was nice to actually talk and get to know some of you a little more. At Madison it is so crazy trying to get to know others is pretty tough. #9: My buddy Tony losing with the 49ers against the Bills against my brother Mike. I think of the 49ers as the unbeatable team and my buddy Tony should of easily won with way more experience. It was funny to see him lose and my brother getting his first Tecmo victory. #8: The Raffle prizes: I gave away a 12 month calendar the People's Champ made with some of his greatest sports memories. It was hand drawn by him. I believe Cory (Noonan) won it. Ask him. He can tell you it was a real Picasso. Also Segathon's buddy Nate winning the autographed Jeff George Card giving him good luck and getting him to the Elite 8 of the tourney. He truly did give 110%. I spent many of hours during my summer school prep periods on craigslist and ebay bargaining for low prices. I tried to make sure almost everyone won something. If you didn't let me know I will make you a card of your favorite player and bring it to Tundra Bowl. #7: Everyone making bracket play. It meant a lot to my buddies who aren't the best and new players that I haven't met (who were part of 2D Con) to be in bracket play. Also for those traveling from far away distances it makes it worth while. Everyone at least got 4 games in. It gives a fighting chance to everyone. It was also great to see my friends and brothers matched up against each other in the brackets. #6: The People's Champ getting his first victory. He almost had 2 in bracket play. He had Segathon on the ropes for most of the game in a Jets (Segathon) vs. Phoenix (George) it took a last quarter drive to get the win. Then the next game he defeated my brother Alex to cement his name in the win column. My brother could be an up and comer. I bet in 20 years he could take Madison. #5 and #4: RetroNathan stepping up and helping me out. Tom (8-Bit) was suppose to help me run this but for some reason just didn't. I know he did move so he was busy with real world stuff but it is hard to run a tourney one your own. My buddy Scib reduced him to 4 Bit because of his performance and play. Nate really came through with setting up the bracket putting in scores and helping clean up. I really appreciated it. He received a Joe Montana Starting Lineup as a reward. I couldn't of run the tourney as effectively without them. Segathon bringing his Tv's and NBA JAM. Having extra controllers which we needed two of and an extra TV which we needed and NBA Jam was awesome. Not only did my buddies love NBA Jam a college favorite for us but other people from 2D Con were playing NBA Jam. I really wished I wasn't running the tourney because I was jealous watching my buddies and brothers playing NBA Jam. I wanted in on that action. Miller and Smits never were able to get their groove on. These guys are also great guys in general. Awesome personalities and super fun to hang around. If you don't know them go to Tundra Bowl this January which Retro Nathan host or a Segathon event. It will make you smile. #3.5 and 3: The Iowa boys representing. I had heard of these guys but to really meet them was a joy. I played Kyle in group play in a classic match of Cleveland vs. NO which was back and forth until I fumbled on the kickoff and he took the lead for good. I played Cory in the final 6 in which he crushed me. I played Kris Kramer in the Elite 8 and he won in a Bills vs. Giants matchup which I was lucky to comeback and then lost on on my final drive. He blocked my JJ. I didn't get to play Justin or the other Kramer Brother but they are fun guys. I think they were all part of the Elite 8. Partying with you guys would be great. I hope to make it down there for one of your tourneys. I have tried a couple of years and each time snow has been my nemesis. Josh coming in from ND. He was classic. He had a classic game against my buddy Scib in bracket play. He also brought a case of Coors tall cans in and had great enthusiasm. That is what I call class. #2: My buddy Scib (Nostradamus)(Bills) and Josh (ElijahPeters)(Oilers) game in bracket play. Segathon posted the video a must watch. Scib throws a pass and it goes out bounds in the endzone for a safety with a minute left up one. He then kickoffs and Josh throws a JJ to get himself to the 50 with 3 seconds left. Zendejas lines up a perfect kick only to get blocked and win the game. It was pandemonium! I forgot how it all broke down until I watched the video that is how pumped I was. #1: The Championship game Francis (Mort)(Buccaneers) vs. Kyle (The Gamer)(Cardinals). This game had some of the best back and forth action I had ever seen for a championship game. It was classic. Mort was doing JJ's with Carrier like no one I had ever seen. He was on fire. Next year could definitely see a name change to Millard's Mayhem because of this game. Kyle did come back on a JJ to Roy Green and then out tapped Mort to score to send the game to overtime. I think the total play was 80 yards with the JJ happening on Mort's 48 yard line. Mort won the toss in OT and then after two plays fumbled on his 27 yard line. After two plays Kyle kicks the game winning field goal with Al Del Greco to seal the deal. He wins the Championship Belt and the prize money. It was great. An awesome way to end the tourney. Super fun and super exciting. Thanks again everyone. There were other great games and lots of excitement across the board to talk about as well, but that will all be in the book I write. Just kidding. Thanks for the memories.

    (NES) Tecmo Grey Cup 2016

    I plan on updating the ROM again if there is interest. I haven't started it yet. I can never tell if other people really use the CFL roms or if I'm just making it for myself lol. I see some people advertising the 2 pt conversion for Tecmo 18 on facebook. Do you know if that is now possible to have added?

    Segathon and I were also talking about this. When you have friends or new players sign up and I know the thrill of victory is important but help some of the new guys with setting up play books and some of the fundamentals of the game. I made that announcement in Millard's Mayhem and it was good to see that happening before and after games. We can build a bigger fan base and more participation based on that as well. Destroying some one you know you are going to beat really doesn't make it worth while. Let them enjoy the past of the greatest sports game ever made. Making it as fun as possible is key. I had lot of free raffle prizes and everyone made bracket play. Most of these guys just want to play and maybe get one victory under the belt.

    It's a good problem to have. And it would be better to coordinate your date with tecmobowl.org, especially if you are trying to make it a big one. But I don't think we want to discourage people posting tournies/tecmo meet ups if 75% of the guys going are just mutual friends anyways. Heard this story on news and I think it applies. Nashville Hot Chicken got huge recently from a reginal dish to KFC selling it. One would think it may hurt the orginal Nashville Chicken places but it actually increased demand as people had the KFC version and want to get authentic dish. Lots going on in the world is crazy but I can get behind a world that has more spicy chicken and tecmo...

    The Road To Tecmo Madison

    We are working on some new, awesome extensions for Tecmo and Tecmo Madison. We are going to start a tournament series, including qualifiers and a last chance event, that leads up and builds to Tecmo Madison -- The Road To Tecmo Madison. Overall, there will be 5 tournaments - 3 qualifiers that will be coined "Majors", 1 Last Chance event and the main event, Tecmo Madison. Each of the majors will contribute to a new point and seeding system for Tecmo tournaments. Players who finish in the top 4 of each major will get a guaranteed Top 6 region seed at Madison. Major winners will get an even better seeding, with preferred placement into regions. The points system will be assigned to all tournaments that adhere to a few standard rules and formats. Those are: They must use the basic rules from Tecmo Madison (http://tecmomadison.com/rules), they must have more than 24 people, they must submit the scores to TecmoMadison.com using the proper format, and the final portion of the tournament must be a seeded bracket, single or double elimination. The points system is as follows: 1st 25 2nd 18 3rd 15 4th 12 5th 10 6th 8 7th 6 8th 4 9th 2 10th 1 Once your tournament has been posted on TecmoBowl.org and pinned, the Tecmo Madison committee will read through and reach out to let you know if your tournament will be part of The Road To Tecmo Madison. We will announce all the tournament majors in the coming weeks here on TecmoBowl.org. Players: We will keep track of your points and they will be posted on your TecmoMadison.com profile as we build them out. More on this later. Organizers: There will be further benefits to being part of the series and we will make a separate post laying out that information for you. Good luck and godspeed during this Tecmo Bowl season.

    It's a good thing. I am holding a tournament where I newly relocated in New York State. It is in between NYC and Syracuse. I have already had a new group of guys reach out to me, who are actually pretty competitive. I am looking to hold some practices with them, and grow them. It is a great way to add competition to the field, and see some new faces. Also, it gives people a chance to be more willing to play, by playing the game in their backyard and not having to travel so far away. Once they get some games under their belt and get better- they will venture out to larger, more meaningful tournaments. To me- 100% good thing. In my opinion the end goal of Tecmo should be to grow it so large, that it is televised, and the grand prize is a huge cash payout like other video games do. Would be special if that happened.

    (NES) Tecmo Grey Cup 2016

    View File Tecmo Grey Cup 2016 Thanks to Buck and Bruddog TECMO GREY CUP 2016 IS HERE!!! This year's version has tremendous upgrades and improvements. Using GRG's base CFL ROM (with Pambazos88 added Ottawa Redblacks graphics), Buck, Bruddog and I have completed this year's version of Tecmo Grey Cup. Buck did a ton of the difficult work. Buck fixed all of the graphics, removed the halftime stats, and redid the playbooks to give offense formations continuity and competitive COM. He also gave the Pro Bowl a makeover as he coded the 2016 CFL all-star team, and the 2016 NFL all-star team, and gave them proper playbooks as well as replacing references to AFC-NFL with CFL-NFL. There is even an easter egg to change the players of the NFL all-star team to the 1991 TSB all-stars. He lessened the kickoff minimum and maximum distance by 5 yards. Buck also added a hack for directional punting which I think is fantastic. Bruddog stepped in and provided a major major upgrade when he fixed the safety glitch. The end zones were increased to 20 yards which stops shotgun plays near your own end zone of automatically becoming a safety. This fix worked two-fold, as the real CFL end zones are 20 yards. Not only did this fix the safety glitch but it's more accurate, and now you have so much more freedom to call plays when you are in the red zone which is just like the real CFL. You can still throw a fly route from the 1 yard line!!! I updated the rosters to reflect the 2016 CFL rosters at end of season. I modified both player and team sim settings to reflect the 2016 season. Buck and I decided to release the game both with Regular and Max Juice versions. I personally love the Max Juice version as with only 3 downs the field position battle feels very true to the real CFL game you see on TV. However, that mode is certainly difficult and not for novice players so the regular version is also included for those that need it or just think it's more fun. Enjoy Tecmo Grey Cup 2016!!! Key Features: 3 downs 110 yard field 20 yard end zones FG posts at front of end zones Directional punting 6 team playoff using accurate CFL crossover wild card system 2016 rosters CFL vs NFL (replacing Pro Bowl) Submitter chris99 Submitted 12/24/2016 Category Partial Hacks

    I decided to host Iowa Tecmo because the elite players in my area have to travel 185, 250, and 300 miles for us to meet up to play in a competitive tournament with more than just my local group. The other dozen players in the novice category are looking to have fun, try their luck, see if this is a hobby they'd like to continue (aka growing the game). My intention is not to draw players from Madison, Minn, Milwaukee, Chicago, Indy, Cincy, Cleveland.... and also understand that with that mindset my tournament will never have more than 46 participants. As for cohesiveness. Tomczak Bowl and I negotiated dates to avoid conflict. The 11/11 Iowa Tecmo conflicts with NY tourney... but its safe to say that nobody is upset about staying in their own timezone if they were torn which tourney to travel too. My life/schedule only allows me to go to 2 events per year, so having more/less tournaments available is irrelevant to me (and anyone else who goes to their tri-state tournaments). Tournaments bring significance to the game and offers the sense that your are playing FOR something. In my opinion, the larger tournaments (mainly Tecmo Madison) have become cut-throat competitive (that's a positive remark) due to the experiences budding players pickup from mini-tournaments. You can't compete against elite players at Madison (rare but possible) without SOME experience.... and some of us outside the mainstream tournament locations have to fill that void... hence the surge of satellite tournaments. I marked my vote "Good for Tecmo".

    That's good stuff mgk. Thank you for those thoughtful posts. I like what you're throwing down. I certainly hope that most people don't support those statues bc of the evil, but for the good. We can look back and destroy legacies bc they were slave owners. And rightfully so, I suppose. But not knowing what the future holds could mean the exact same thing for extraordinary people of any time. That's sad and concerning. So museums is a logical compromise like you said. I wonder what would happen if someone put a statue up on private property? I see Che Guevara on t-shirts and he's become a pop culture icon of sorts. At first, it did bother me. So I empathize with those feelings. What did I do? I got a special tattoo of him, but not in celebration. It's very visible and quite a conversation piece. I'm going to add this perspective to my discussions bc I think it will be helpful. It's basically an anti-communist tribute I suppose. For me, it makes me feel like I've risen above what happened to my family in Cuba. And don't want to see it happen here. And respectfully, I hope you're wrong about the police state of over correcting the wheel so to speak. But when killing cops is being celebrated in the streets it's a recipe for complete disaster. It's feeding the problem and giving them reason to abuse even more power. Unintended consequences are a horrible bitch.

    A person being annoyed that a statue exists that is potentially seen by that person on a daily basis, which commemorates a movement that tried to keep what they considered to be the right to own people as commodities--or the classic 'the South fought to defend states rights against what they considered to be an overreaching federal government' argument--seems pretty rational to me. The defense of the confederacy's 'states rights' perspective, as was the popular deflection for 100 years, without adding that this position was built around a state's right to classify human beings as property, is moral equivocation at it's finest. It's not about 'protecting history.' The majority of those statues were erected by the direct first generation descendants of the confederate soilders who fought and died during the civil war. They wanted to commemorate their fallen fathers and brothers. There wasn't going to be an unbiased ethical discussion about this in the late 18th-early 19th century, not as these states continued to pass segregation laws, and laws keeping many black people from taking political office. Or worst, the statues that were created as a direct response by white southern sympathizers to the civil rights movement of the 60s. The 'preserving history' argument is as phony as all the reasons why no one wants any symbols in history to exist in public that represent violent oppression to a people within their own nation. I'm not saying confederacy statues shouldn't exist. But they should be in museums where context can be made about the history of the people represented, who funded the statues creation, and why. The 'history' will always live in texts, or digitally, or by spoken word--and not as glorified statues in public parks and squares forcing all to see. And for all of the red-herring, 1984, big brother responses to rewriting those mediums, spare me; preserving a statue is not going to offset revisionist histories, which are always written by the victor/people in power, as was the basis for the confederate statues creation to begin with--in that the white relatives may have lost the war, but they retained the majority of their local community power. The statues shouldn't live where little Timmy the passerby is conditioned to believe that statues represent figures that we should look up to, who stood up for something of value to a nation's people. If it was an argument to preserve history, then the same would apply to Nazi flags in Germany, Saddam statues in Iraq, and on, and on. Statues are for praising high-minded ideals and the figures who championed them, not for reminding us of our sins, or attempts to justify them. This all being said, I don't like mob-like crowds pulling statues down. I think that sends the wrong message and sets a dangerous precedent. I'm glad people are being charged for the recent statue defacing. Many elected officials, at the behest of the constituency that elected them, are opting the make that decision for themselves as a community, which is as much or more of an example of our democratic process than how most of those statues were originally erected in the first place.

    Everything was great. Had a blast. All the speed running going on next to us was awesome to watch. Everybody had a blast it seemed, win or lose. That play was actually 95 yards I think. I ran out of bounds at the 5 on the KR to make sure I could get a few plays off. Not to many people can say they have a 95yd TD in a Tecmo tournament under their belt. I did it against Mort with no time left to tie it! That's crazy. Mort's a great sport and incredibly fun to play with. Hope he dominates every where he goes except for when I'm there, haha. I'll definitely be back next year. I'm with you Chris. If I wasn't in the tournament, you bet your ass I was going to go looking at all the other game centers going on. Never been to any game expo before. I know that was a small-ish one but it was awesome. I can't even imagine what E3 would be like.

    Great job @SammieSmith33 Tourney had it all - Great Venue - lots of other stuff to do with free arcade, indie games and magic card players that make a nerdy looking guy like myself resemble a prom king. - Tons of people with 2dcon going on - (I saw Chris Kluwe, Batman, chicks in spandex and portly guys wrapped in hotel pillows) - Great group of guys between Sammies 38 brothers, the rest of the Wisconsin Dells crew, the large Iowa contingent with @noonan energy (I think 5 hour energy drinks are just Noonans sweat) - all the tecmo swag for raffels. wish I was first out and got this shirt And some great finishes. This one was right after the Pass block Saftey Glitch Happened And of course the Championship game mele at the end. Glad @RetroNathan caught it on camera. I was trying to as well. (that's my elbow that keeps getting in the way) but I didn't press record. Mark Carrier is Unstoppable.

    lots of great ideas and comments already in this thread, that I could only echo. abundance = good. conflicting dates = bad. to me, it seems like Madison has established itself, for now, as THEE place to showcase yourself and get true "bragging rights". all these other tournaments, are what they are. they are GOOD. period. sometimes there is "weak" competition, and sometimes the force is strong. but, any person who wins just about any tournament has a right to feel good about himself and bow humbly before the tecmo gods. TSB has random numbers and luck and bullshit, unlike chess. so, you can water down chess competition, but you can't really water down TSB...TSB waters its competition down by default, sometimes. right? so, keep up the tournaments, keep up the hype, but try to not conflict the weekends!

    First of all we all dropped.the ball.in Madison when @davefmurray was trying to have an meeting with tournament directors the friday b4 tourney. @mort1237 and @joeygats stayed up to 4am playing tecmo night b4. Me and@mort1237 just cancel.our buffalo tourney mainly because of lack of Local Players. We changed the format drastically to encourage this is all about having fun. They key to.getting newer.players is making it fun as possible. The Cleveland tourney drawed plenty.of new.players so.it is possible to do. I realized there were too.many tecmo tourneys going already on so I drastically changed the format on a whim too woo the local buffalo.players to play in all around nes+sega format. Plus a local radio station hosts an Local tecmo tourney every year that dumbs down the tecmo via qualifing vs cpu and cant change your playbook. So the few experienced can easily run wild in this type of format esp. with newer players running dead plays ( Reverses etc). So they get sick.of it and don't learn anything.

    This is the key point to all of the discussion. If there is a tournament in Texas and one in Ohio on the same weekend, theoretically, the local impact on both tournaments is minimal from a local player perspective. One may be more "prestigious" or run by a group that can pull in travelling players, but more likely, local and regional players will play in their local and regional tournaments. Tournaments running back to back to back isn't an issue if those tournaments are in WA, CA, LA, NY, and AZ since the overlap of players is minimal. But... If @SammieSmith33 didn't check the schedule and happened to run Mayhem the same week or a week on either side of an Iowa tournament that would impact both as players make a decision on which tournament to play in if work schedules and cost are a factor. It feels like regional schedule conflicts should be hammered out first and foremost before thinking about the wider implication of two tournaments on the same weekend in different regions of the country. And someone make a tournament in California happen - I'm tired of hearing @bruddog complain about not having live competition

    I think it is good but coordinating dates is also important. I did think about that when setting Up Millard's Mayhem. Nothing was happening in August in the WI, IA, IL, MN region. I like having one in Minnesota because we have a lot of local players in Minnesota and I have my brothers and friends who like playing and actually get to play more than two games and not have to spend an outrageous amount of money. Plus I think you get to know some of the other Tecmo players better. I would have never really talked to the Schultes and Kramer brothers, Rico, Mort, Peters, etc as much in bigger tourneys because to much is going on and I hang out with my brothers and college buddies. Plus each tourney has its own pizzaz which makes it authentic. It gives good ideas to other tourneys to make quality tournaments. I think having around 32 players though is important too. It makes the gameplay exciting and brings the madness to Tecmo. Also having good equipment and extra equipment helps as well. You shouldn't rely on to many others. I had most of the equipment but Segathon helped with the NBA JAM which he did straight out of his own heart. Awesome guy. RetroNathan who was a another great help and did it out of pure kindness by bringing his system and helping with bracket. Organization and being prepared is key. Overall, I would say let's keep them up. Fellowship is important and online doesn't not compare to playing on a CRT with a classic NES in a bar or venue and having fun. It keeps the man cards from expiring. Mickey: "If you catch this chicken, you can catch grease lighting. Rocky: " I feel like the Kentucky Fried Idiot."

    Hey, let's go protest 150 year old slavery concepts and wear some stuff made in China and use materials all made in Asia. Because China is not slave labor....and China factory is good for the environment and my pocketbook....and I am so good to the climate, unlike my neighbor - he shouldn't get to use air conditioning and take trips on jet planes, just me and Al. ....and while we're at it, let's take other people's tax money and have abortions, because unborn babies are our personal property, they're like our little slaves that we can kill and sell their little parts for profit. END sarcasm... any irony here? yes, I think so. I am not from the South, and I denounce any kind of "supremacist", be it from whites, blacks, or yellows, or tans. or any other human type. and I agree, if you wear a mask - fuck you. you must be a paid protester. my opinion on history removal - it's not like the statue was there during the Civil War, it was set up later, as a monument to what happened...but, if you want to tear down a statue, go right ahead. if you want to protest it being brought down, go right ahead. and I do not believe that people should be property. black, yellow, white, tan, or baby. edit - and yes, I like your takes, MGK.

    And lastly, I've had a real revelation recently about 'white people' the racial classification term. The history behind why racial classifications exist is as depressing as you can imagine. 'People of white skin' is a concept that predates this more modern racial classifier, and by 'modern' in this instance, I mean 1700s. But this more modern classifier of white, black, yellow, was created because of transactional purposes, to distinguish the classes involved in these transactions, and the roles they played. The history is pretty humbling. People are terrible, and stupid, and terribly stupid.

    Unrelated to my post above, I'm having a hard time not seeing how this country becomes substantially more of a police state (than it already is) in the next 3-8 years. I walk around New York every day to go to work, and literally see police patrolling the streets with automatic weapons pointed at the ground every day. Granted, I'm close to the financial district, but I never thought I'd see patrolling officers, decked out in body armor and the whole nine yards as an expected part of my every day. Some people I know casually shrug it off and say, 'that's the world we live in...' and I'm like... 'it's that easy for you, huh?' The great American experiment slowly desolves, piece by piece. We could be trying to mute these extremist voices, and instead, we're pandering to them, energizing them, antagonizing them, and giving them platform after platform to spew their thought vomit to an already antagonized base. And when the storm troopers come to assert order (I.e., protect the wealthy individuals and institutions), it'll be under the premise to 'protect us from ourselves.' People much smarter than all of us have been predicting this shit for generations, and it looks to be finally coming true. All the pieces are in place. An authoritarian-minded leader, surrounding himself with an administration built with military leaders, during a time when foreigners are vilified, and a nation becoming further divided by loud extremist voices who are shouting at you what you should believe. The Church of Social Justice is alive and well on both sides, and the silent moderates sitting on their hands are the ones who are going to get caught in the crossfire, literally and figuratively, when they could be telling both groups to chill the fuck out, and bring everyone to the table.

    Tecmo Milwaukee Presents: Who's Next? Date: 11/4 Location: Boomers Sports Bar and Grill (Pewaukee, WI) Player field projected at 48 players. Max players cutoff will be at 64 players.Round robin of Division play followed by single elimination tournament. Projected Entry Fee is $40Game Rules: Tecmo Milwaukee rules/ Tecmo Madison rules1) Teams will be tiered in 4 groups of 7 teams. 7 Lotto balls will be picked from before each game to determine which tier teams will be picked from. (1 in 7 chance for Tier 1 teams to be picked). 2) Coin toss winner picks Lotto Ball. Coin Toss Loser picks matchup. Coin toss Winner picks Team or Controller. (Player can only choose a team 1 time during round robin play. Teams resets in tournament play.)3) Customizing Playbooks and Lineup Changes: Customizing playbooks is permissible. You can access your “change” screen (screen where you check player conditions and make substitutions) only twice per half. This helps speed up the games. 4) WR/TE at RB: A WR/TE cannot carry the football unless it is a reverse. You can insert a WR or TE into a RB slot for lead blocking purposes, but he cannot carry the football. To further clarify, players such as Ernest Givins, Ricky Sanders, Mel Gray, Keith Jackson and Andre Rison cannot carry the football unless it is a reverse. 5) No Ties/Overtime: No game can end in a tie. If a game is tied when regulation concludes, competitors will proceed to OT. If no one scores in the first OT, a new game will begin and the first competitor to score will be declared the winner. So that one competitor does not start with the ball in each OT period, the kicking team in the first OT will be the receiving team in the new game (i.e. the second OT). 6) Lurching: Lurching is prohibited. If you want to rush with a DL, you must either go outside the offensive tackle or “popcorn” someone on the offensive line. Note that this rule does not apply to LBs. 7) Nintendo Malfunctions: If there is an equipment failure in the first half, games will be replayed from the start. If equipment malfunctions in the 2nd half, only the second half is replayed. In that event, the scores from each half are added together to obtain a final score. If the game was uncompetitive or the equipment malfunctioned due to human error, the tourney organizers reserve the right to declare a winner without replaying any portion of the game. Tournament Disputes: Rico, Coconuts, Troy and myself. 9) Controllers: Tournament competitors are not allowed to bring their own controller to use in games unless approved prior to tournament. Tournament organizers will coordinate obtaining equipment for the competition. Entry Deadline is 11/1 Email address: tecmomilwaukee@gmail.com Top 8 places paid out. Each tournament has been a huge success fielding a very competitive playing field coming from all parts of the country. The venue is fantastic with great service, food and of course Adult Solutions. Our set up is fantastic with game play moving fast and furious. There is large interest already for this tournament. Don’t miss out! Thank you, Hardy Nickerson

    You don't really see that it's a problem I think it's if anything a good thing. It's not like we're all 16 year old kids without jobs that can go to everything sometimes it's hard to make dates being adults and everything. If I was a high-profile athlete and felt pressured to go to all of them then yes. And for Tecmo Dallas and Cleveland to be on the same weekend was a stretch for people to say they should have been on different weekends. They're seriously like on opposite sides of the planet

    Modding Bases Loaded for Dummies

    A while back I made a "For Dummies" guide on modding Bad News Baseball for the NES. While I enjoyed that game very much, I always had a soft spot for the original Bases Loaded. It was my second baseball game ever; RealSports Baseball on Atari 2600 was actually my first. I really appreciate the simplicity and pick-up-and-play-ability of it. However, I had never explored modding it until now. And I want to share that with you. So come along and make Bases Loaded your own.

    @Lebron of the 'Thon @segathonsovI hope to make it to the Segathon NHL Tourney. I bet that is allowed since it's Hockey. I'll have to practice up. My favorite team was the Islanders.

    Yep. And the alt-right will grow because of the constant and ridiculous coverage and ties to Trump they are receiving. Seems to me the lunatic left is much larger in numbers but the racist right is crazier. If you're wearing a mask then fuck you. You obviously don't want friends and family to know who you are, so you're either a coward or don't really believe what you're saying anyway. The media profits from this "news." I don't think any of them even give a shit they've lost all credibility. And I don't blame all journalists. Like cops, there are terrible ones. I guess you could say we have a systemic problem with journalism in this country, too? Free press my ass, more like paid press. Here's a crazy idea, don't blatantly break the law. I'm not very religious. But it's hard to argue the 10 commandments when trying to shape a decent society. Anyway, violence sucks and it's not the answer. But IF there has to be violence... I'll take a war between Nazis and Communists over a random shooting every day of the week.

    I really enjoyed my time at this tournament, and @SammieSmith33 did a great job with the tourney itself, as well as having a plethora of excellent door prizes. Thankful to be a part of it and see a lot of the brotherhood. Congrats to @mort1237 on another spectacular run, and congrats to @thegamer1185 for winning not only Millard's Mayhem today, but also free entry to Tundra Bowl V in January! Disclaimer: The cash prize for winning Millard's Mayhem significantly outweighs the free TBV entry, but it's a nice bonus.
