  2. Thanks to all who came out on Saturday to play in the second LI Retro Tecmo Super Bowl tournament! The Expo was amazing and so was the Tecmo. Your top finishers were: 1st: Matt D 2nd: Erik M 3rd: Kevin S Special shoutout to Chris B who finished 4th in his first tournament and Greg L who took home 5th in his best finish to date. Also special thanks to the NHL 94 crew for working with us and letting us borrow a couple of TVs for the opening rounds. Picture of the finals below (MIA vs SD): Northeast Tecmo lives again! On to NYC in October!
  3. We weren't planning on it, but if anyone can bring a stream setup, I'm all for it!
  4. I dunno, using glitches to secure the world Mega Man 2 speed run record is like using lurching to secure the all-time Tecmo sack record. Still a good watch though.
  5. Start time has been confirmed for Saturday, August 12th @ 12 PM. Disregard anywhere you might see a different start time.

All rookie players will be randomly assigned another rookie player and all tournament veterans assigned a tournament vet for the first round as space permits.

Prizes: Cash prizes will be awarded to top three participants. All participants will be eligible to win a raffle prize just for entering. Top first time player will receive one free future entry into any Northeast Tecmo Tournament! Equipment: We need Nintendos, TVs, Controllers, Carts! If you are able to bring any of these in working condition, please let us know what you can bring and how many of each. If you are able to provide any television sets, please let us know the size and any kind of hookup (RF Switch/AV Cable). How to Register: Register here: https://smash.gg/tournament/long-island-retro-gaming-expo/register Team Selection for Each Matchup: A coin will be flipped before 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. Note about Matchups: 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 Rams-Broncos, 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. Rules: Equipment Failure: If equipment fails during the game, games will be replayed from the start unless it is halftime. After halftime, scores are taken from the half and another half is played. Scores from each half are added together to form final score. Ties are allowed in pool play. If the game is tied in elimination play, then a new game is started with the first person to score being the winner. Any malfunction caused by human error may result in an automatic forfeit due to the discretion of the tournament organizers. Onside Kicks: Onside Kicks are okay anytime (aka, "at your own risk"). Lurching: Lurching is not allowed (dive tackling over the line of scrimmage with a DL). DL use is allowed, but you must either go outside the Offensive Tackle or grapple an OL to rush. WR/TE at RB: Running the ball with a WR or TE from the RB position is prohibited. WRs or TEs are allowed to run the ball on reverses. Questions: Feel free to post questions about the tournament below or you can direct them to NYTecmo at tecmobowl.org
  8. It was thumb-licking good!
  9. Ahh! I would have definitely come down for this, but I booked my vacation for the same weekend. Is this at someone's house or a public venue? I'll pass the word along!
  10. I want to express my sincerest gratitude to everyone who came out this year. As some of you know, we lost our space 6 days before the tournament, a place we had been hosting the tournament for the last 5 years. Getting that e-mail Sunday night from our former venue simultaneously angered me and made me feel panicked. I nearly cancelled the tournament. But I remembered that the Tecmo must go on! I reached out to a few of the NY guys who have been very involved in the meetups--Ryan @hoigaard, Patrick, Scott, Matt @deadfaulkner--and they helped me sort through what to do. We were able to come together and book a space within the next 24 hours. And it ended up being one of our best tournaments yet. This experience made me reflect a bit on the Tecmo scene, what it has become, places I've gone to, people that I've met in the Northeast and across the country. And I feel very blessed to have shared many of the thrilling and exciting experiences I've had with all you guys. I've come to know many of you more than just from your Tecmo play. And I am seriously bummed that @arncoem won't be having the CT tourney this year, but I guess there's always next year. Anyway, I could go on and on with all this mushy stuff, but I'll stop here. I'll be posting my experience of my games and tourney day shortly. Thank you to all who came and made it a great day in Tecmo. In the meanwhile, here are some photos: https://www.facebook.com/NYTecmo/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1915919231964190
  11. To All Participants: Our location for this year's tournament has changed! If you have already signed up, you should have received an e-mail already. Here is the new location: Location: Raven's Head Public House, 3804 Broadway, Astoria, NY 11103 (Approx. 15 minutes from Midtown Manhattan, Uptown R train to Steinway Street in Queens) Website: http://www.ravensheadpublichouse.com/ This should not affect anyone's travel plans as the new venue is only 5 blocks away. We will have our own private room in "The Attic." I'll be getting groups out in the next couple of days! If you have not signed up, please do so! The field this year is currently just under 30. If you are traveling with someone, let me know who so I don't place you guys in the same group.
  12. @Maynard_G_Krebs This is an historic occasion! First ever tournament and I am proud that it's this one!
  13. Raffle prizes coming your way, including a signed football from Tecmo punting legend Sean Landeta! Also, some Tecmo swag courtesy of Tecmobowlers.com:
  14. This list is for some of the top BBQ spots, a few of which I have been to: http://ny.eater.com/maps/new-york-city-best-barbecue-brooklyn-queens Though I must question why BBQ when most of us Northerners are in awe of any BBQ south of the Mason-Dixon line. Streaming is not only allowed, but encouraged!
  15. @Nameless Loser I got your signup! Let me know who you know that is traveling from your area. That way I can avoid putting you in the same group during pool play.
