  1. TSB trivia game

    Jim Skow?
  2. Last heard he moved to Florida.
  3. Tournament Abundance

    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".
  4. Pass the word to your Tomczak faithful about the Des Moines tournament. Thx
  5. Nobody knows what that means... update your tecmobowl.org profile to show your location then maybe we'll get the joke.
  6. Got the page updated. Get to www.iowatecmo.com and register. With Tomczak pending... this is a good change for those eastern Iowans to get some good tournament games in.
  7. Registration details updated on first page. If you don't register and play... you don't win.
  8. @SammieSmith33 did indeed outdid himself by putting on this tourney.
  9. What is the link to these results? Couldn't find the link on the main tecmomadision site. If guessed the url \player\noonan but figured there would be a list/link.
  10. Kyle Nelson (thegamer1185) is going to be playing as well. Can't seem to get him to register like I did though, but he'll be there.
  11. Me too. Registered and plan on attending. Will likely bring a set with me (Console/controllers/cartridge)
  12. Iowa Tecmo 4 is a go for 11/11/17. I have not gone back and re-posted this event as to get it on the forum correctly and thus on Discord. Will get that done likely in a new post.
  13. Can't speak as to the Sega skills, which Kevin Cabarello and Segathon have, but give the NES crown to Kyle(thegamer1185) or TecmoPhyscho, those two have tons of NES skills.
  14. Your brother would be me... Noonan... and yes I'm strongly considering a trip to the MSP metro area for a good time.
