  1. Every once in a while I poke outside of TecmoBowl.org and am inspired by other online communities. In the past, you either just sort of made a first post somewhere random, or a "Hi there" post wherever you felt to. Thus, if you're new here, or even if you've been here since day one, feel free to say "Hi " in this thread. If you're new to TecmoBowl.org, you might do yourself a favo by looking over our New Members Thread for valuable information and descriptions about what this forum has to offer. And while you're at it, why not add yourself to the TSB Players Map? We'd like the Players Map to eventually help Tecmo Super Bowl fans be able to see who is in their area for starting up a tournament, or just finding a new bud to play a game.
  2. View File TecmoBowl.org Presents: Tecmo Super Bowl 2017 Tecmo Super Bowl is the greatest sports video game of all time. Now, 25 years after TSB made 8-Bit legends of Bo Jackson and Lawrence Taylor, TecmoBowl.org proudly announces the release of Tecmo Super Bowl 2017. This site's 10th yearly iteration updates Tecmo's NES classic with up-to-date rosters, graphics, schedules and play books for all 32 NFL squads. Additionally, you can now check the defensive conditions of your players. Playable on multiple platforms and operating systems via NES emulation software, Tecmo Super Bowl 2016 brings Nintendo's bone-crunching classic to today's computers and handheld devices. Will offenses fear Von Miller like they feared Lawrence Taylor? Who is the more deadly play-caller: Aaron Rodgers or Dan Marino? Will Todd Gurley live up to the hype? Loaded into an NES Emulator, Tecmo Super Bowl 2017 will make legends for the next 25 years. Tecmo Super Bowl 2017 Table of Contents A. How This Works B. How To Play - PC/Mac C.

  3. All things equal health-wise I'm taking Fournette. If a team checks him out and has any reservations about his ability to stay healthy, it's a lot safer to go Cook. People overlook the ability to stay on the field Emmett Smith brought to the table when evaluating his greatness.
  4. This is a NFL Memes facebook page masquerading as a 2017-18 discussion thread.
  5. Congrats @duecethasa1nt
  6. I couldn't get this to work in time for the release.

  8. Signup: http://tecmobowl.org/lincoln What: Tecmobowl.org Tecmo Super Bowl Tournament Where: Lincoln, Nebraska @ Barry's Bar and Grill - http://barrysbarandgrill.com/ - Located in Downtown Lincoln in the Haymarket - 235 N. 9th St Lincoln, NE When: Saturday, Feb 4th, 2017 - Tournament Check-in between 11-11:45am, game play to start at 11:45 am How much does it cost? - $20. Pay at the event. There is an ATM if you're the guy who never has cash. Tournament Limit - Tourney will be capped at 64 players Is there a payout? - Payout will be for the top 4 finishers based on the number of people that show up at the event. I'm working on a belt/trophy for this year. Will there be food? - Yes they have a great menu. Format 4 person groups will play world cup style to determine seeding into a single elimination tournament. The semi final losers will play for 3rd/4th place. The amount of people to advance to the tournament and/or available systems will determine Rules Team Selection & Coin Toss: A manual coin-flip will precede each game. The coin-flip winner will choose the matchup (i.e. the two teams). The coin-flip loser then selects either (a) one of the two teams or (b) his preferred controller. If the coin-flip loser selects his preferred controller, the coin-flip winner selects a team first. “One Matchup Once” 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 matchup for the rest of the tournament. Player B, however, is free to select that matchup later in the tournament. Customizing Playbooks and Lineup Changes: Customizing playbooks is permissible. WR or 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, and Andre Rison cannot carry the football unless it is a reverse. Ties: Although ties are permitted in the tournament’s “group play” portion, such are not permitted in the single-elimination portion of the tournament. If a game ends in a tie after overtime, a new game will begin, and the first player to score in the new game is the winner. 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. You cannot simply go around your blocker and dive. Note that this rule does not apply to LBs. 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: Matt Knobbe is the tournament referee. He will decide all disputes unless he is a player in the game. If he is a player in the disputed game, Travis Reinsch will resolve the dispute. Current registration list 1. Matt K - Lincoln 2. Chris W - Omaha, NE 3. Daniel S - Auburn, NE 4.

  11. It's half of the second half. The quality is sketch. I provided some very light commentary in the background as not to intrude too much into the game https://www.periscope.tv/w/1vAxRdQkNeZGl#
  12. I'll have single elim tourney results live here when they happen http://challonge.com/tecmolnk7
  13. List updated. 3 added, 3 removed. The Moulds Bros out due to a family thing.
  14. For future reference, it makes a bit more sense to list pick matchup as 1) and choose controller as 2) as most people will want to control the matchup pick either way and player one is a consolation prize.
  15. Removed the rule about limiting the amount of times you can access the change players screen as it didn't seem necessary and I've never seen it talked about.
  16. The venue will be is use on Friday Night but Andy, Richie, and Justin from Omaha (TECMO OMAHA) will be getting some hotel rooms and will host the official Friday Night Let's Get Some Practice In So We're Not Terrible Jamboree. It will be at the Downtown Marriott catercorner from the venue.at approximately 7pm until they tell you to leave.
  17. If you haven't noticed...this event hasn't made this site's calendar yet.
  18. His brother is coming in from Texas as well
  19. List updated Payout updated from Top 3 to Top 4
  20. Gotta sign up and show up first
  21. Orenga Posse Subtweets
  22. Let me know if you have any sort of twitter presence.
  23. Here we go. We're actually doing it. We're gonna let Johnny Johnson run wild in the Beaver (state). SirTed and I will be crossing the mighty Columbia to bring the Tecmo heat into the Rose City. Even though Gripsmoke and Tailback King are the only Tecmoers to make much noise out of P-town (one with his play, the other with his spray), they are both HOFers, and Oregon is due for some hot Tecmo action. WHEN January 28th, 2017, 11 am. (The Saturday between the Conference Championships and the Superbowl) WHERE Concordia Ale House 3276 NE Killingsworth St, Portland, OR 97211 (Ground Kontrol isn't big enough for all us heavyweights, I'm still down to hit it up after) WHAT Tecmo Super Bowl... and more... (get some) WYMAN well... Seattle has juice and Centralia is... centrally located, but it's time to mix it up and let Portland get some shine. The City of Roses. Bridgetown. Rip City. PDX. One of the jewels of the region and home to something in the sports world we are sorely lacking in Seattle- NBA Basketball. Ted and I will be parlaying our journey South into Friday Night Memphis Grizzlies at Portland Trailblazers action 1/27. Hope you can join us. AND This tournament will not just be a Tecmo Super Bowl showdown. In honor of Clyde the Glide, Terry Porter, and Rick Adelman's mustache, this event will also feature a (very small) Tecmo NBA Basketball Tournament. RIP CITY WHERE YOU AT TBK!? LET'S GOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
