Refund Policy: No refunds but you can transfer the money to another player who is attending. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Rules ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Game play rules ( See each Round Description in the Six pack ) 1. Except for Round 4 Lurching is prohibited. If you want to rush with a DL, you must either go outside the offensive tackle or bump/grapple someone on the offensive line. Please note that this rule does not apply to LBs. If you want to rush with a DL, when crossing over the line of scrimmage within the restricted circle with a DL and before making a play on the QB, you must first bump or grapple an offensive lineman. The video below breaks it down. The below video link shows what is illegal. 2. “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. 3. Customizing Playbooks and Lineup Changes: Customizing playbooks is permissible. You can access your player 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, and Andre Rison cannot carry the football unless it is a reverse. 5. Ties/Overtime: A game can end in a tie. In 6 Pack round ties are allowed to speed things up. In the single elimination No ties are allowed. 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. . System Malfunctions: If there is a system failure in the first half, games will be replayed from the start. If a system 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 noncompetitive or any equipment malfunctioned due to human error, the tourney organizers reserve the right to declare a winner without replaying any portion of the game. 7. Controllers: Tournament competitors are allowed to bring their own controller to use in games. Tournament organizers will also coordinate obtaining equipment for the competition for those that do not bring their own. Tournament organizers will examine each controller and tag it as acceptable, only tagged controllers can be used. NES Max or NES Advantage are not allowed. 8. A forfeit win will be marked as A14 to 0 win. Obviously if someone gives up when your up 28 to o then it will be counted as 28+ for margin of victory. The maximum differential of victory for any game is 28pts. IF you win 35 to 3 it will marked as a 28 pt win for your differential. 9.. The top 12 to 24 records in the Six rounds will square off in single elimination tournament. Each game will be preceded with a manual coin flip. The Loser of the coin toss picks the matchup. Winner of the coin toss gets Team Selection or Controller Preference.The Loser of the coin toss gets what is left over. examples Lou Picks Mia-Philly Morts takes Mia Lou takes P1 or Mort calls Chi-Kc LOu takes P1 and Mort takes CHi --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SIGN UP VIA 2 Steps 1st step: email Ss4sonkun@yahoo.com with NAME: NICKNAME: EQUIPMENT: We are in need of more N.E.S systems and tube tv's to handle the format HOMETOWN: PHONE #: 2nd step. payment.

Refund Policy: We will give you refund up to 6 days before the tourney starts if we get an official notice that you can't make it . ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Game play rules 1. D.l. line use with no lurching: A D.L. (defensive lineman) lurch is defined as trying to dive tackle or blitz the QB at the snap on a drop back pass or trying to use the same effect to break up a running play. Bumping the tackle is fine (on a up or down or backwards direction). Any other form of DL use is legal. The below video link shows what is illegal. 2. W.R. or T.E.’s Cannot have run plays in playbook(except 4 reverse). However you may substitute an w.r./t.e. at rb2 slot as long they don't have a running play.players like Givins and Sanders are considered wr's. 3. Playbook changes/lineup editing each pregame... ( except for round 4 see format ) 4.“One Match-up 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 match-up for the rest of the tournament. Player B, however, is free to select that match-up later in the tournament. This also includes the popular "random match-up cards". SEE EACH ROUND FOR TEAM SELECTION IN THE FORMAT. 5. TIES: In order to speed things up in Rounds 1 thru 6 if game ends tied it will be a tie in order to save time. HOWEVER IN Single elimination round NO GAME CAN END IN A TIE. IF A game is tied when regulation concludes, competitors will proceed to OT. All OT's will be 5-minute sudden death periods. If nobody scores in the first OT, the second OT will be only the first quarter in a new game. If the game goes to an 2nd O.T. you will alternate who gets the ball first (in the second o.t.). This process will be repeated until a winner emerges. So that one competitor does not start with the ball in every OT period, the receiving team (i.e. team that gets the ball first) shall alternate beginning with the second OT period. 6.. Tournament Issues All issues will be settled by the tournament crew. Headed by Louis Buennagel, david Thompson. (Others will be designated by gameday as seconds for when we are playing.) Report controller issues and any other issues AS SOON AS IT HAPPENS. We will use the warm-up session to test all controllers and equipment so hopefully everything works fine. Game freeze will be settled by playing out part or all of the game depending on circumstance... unless you cause a reset by your physical actions. The final decision is up to the tournament directors or those designated by the directors. All equipment loaned for the tourney will be tracked. You may use your own controller if it is standard but do not move the other controller from that station. Respect all equipment as if it was yours. Excessive misbehavior will result in your elimination from the tourney and all future events. We also will record a D.q. win on case by case situation ( if it happens early in the game it will be recorded as a 14 to 0 d.q. win) 7. There MAY be 1 live streams on Twitch, twitch.tv/mort1237...Update we need someone to help us stream games!!! 8. GAMBLING: There's been couple guys who made some side bets last year on H2H pickup games. Money on the wood to make the bet all good. No drama. make your rules clear before the game starts. Max wager is $20. No betting on your own tournament games your playing in. You may wager on live games that your not playing in either (IE MYnameisFlo). 9. We have the right to change the format if needed. 1o. Please mark and label all your equipment. So it isn't lost. 11. A forfeit win will be marked as A14 to 0 win. Obviously if someone gives up when your up 28 to o then it will be counted as 28+ for margin of victory. The maximum differential of victory for any game is 28pts. IF you win 35 to 3 it will marked as a 28 pt win for your differential. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- FORMAT: THE BUFFALO SIX PACK....Each participant will play 6 random games with no rematches.

  3. The main story of "NFL FILMS PRESENTS: Tecmo Bowl" revolves around profiling four of the favorites to win the March, 2012 tournament: "Mort", Sobhi, The Vogt Brothers, and tournament co-founder Chet. Sprinkled into the mix is a series of former and current NFL players reminiscing about their days playing Tecmo, including former Tecmo Super Bowl stars Emmitt Smith and Christian Okoye. One of the most famous players from the game, Christian fittingly is the NFL player featured and serves to illustrate just how far NFL video game have grown in popularity over the years. While many current players will actively lobby EA Sports for higher ratings in Madden, Okoye has only a passing knowledge of the game from fans throughout the years than from actually playing it. As you might expect, Bo Jackson makes an appearance on the show though only in the form of "Tecmo Bo." (BTW, the most legendary video game athlete of all time, despite being asked weekly about the game, has claimed never to have played it.) The overall production is exactly what you would expect from NFL Films, the booming voice of narrator Robb Webb starting the show"A video game from a bygone era...still alive in the Mid-West....it's Tecmo Super Bowl." It's this classic compelling NFL Films story telling that takes us through the tournament as the favorites are eliminated one by one up to the championship. The group of people I watched the piece with proved that you don't have to know a single thing about Tecmo Super Bowl to find this a fun and entertaining walk through of one of the greatest video football games ever created. The crowd favorite proved to be "Mort" with his genuine enthusiasm in competing in Tecmo tournaments. The Tecmo enthusiast will be impressed by the amount of research and detail that went into this production. Most stories of Tecmo Super Bowl, while glowing tributes, are filled with inaccuracies. While Tecmo might have missed the mark when trying to re-release the game as Tecmo Bowl Throwback to the X-box and Playstation, NFL Films managed to exceed my expectations in telling the story of an 8-bit football game from 1991. If you've ever played Tecmo Super Bowl before, you're not only going to love this story, you're probably going to try and find that old NES and immediately fire up a game. (Don't worry, you can play this online these days) The show will air 10/22/12 @ 12:30 a.m. EST (ESPN 2) 10/24/12 @ 2:30 p.m. EST (ESPN 2) 10/26/12 @ 4:30 p.m. EST (NFL Network) 10/27/12 @ 1:30 p.m. EST (NFL Network)
  4. For the last several years we've seen a renascence of Tecmo Super Bowl in the form of tournaments throughout the country. While much of this is attributed to the internet itself, a lot of credit needs to go to the group of guys who started hosting Tecmo Super Bowl tournaments in Madison, WI back in 2006. The brainchild of the Holzbauer brothers, the tournament has grown from 20 to 176 participants in 2012 and in the process inspired numerous tournaments throughout the U.S. The event gained enough momentum to attract the attention of NFL Films which will be debuting their documentary of Tecmo Bowl and the tournament after Monday Night Football on October 22, 2012. The main story of "NFL FILMS PRESENTS: Tecmo Bowl" revolves around profiling four of the favorites to win the March, 2012 tournament: "Mort", Sobhi, The Vogt Brothers, and tournament co-founder Chet.

The group of people I watched the piece with proved that you don't have to know a single thing about Tecmo Super Bowl to find this a fun and entertaining walk through of one of the greatest video football games ever created. The crowd favorite proved to be "Mort" with his genuine enthusiasm in competing in Tecmo tournaments. The Tecmo enthusiast will be impressed by the amount of research and detail that went into this production. Most stories of Tecmo Super Bowl, while glowing tributes, are filled with inaccuracies. While Tecmo might have missed the mark when trying to re-release the game as Tecmo Bowl Throwback to the X-box and Playstation, NFL Films managed to exceed my expectations in telling the story of an 8-bit football game from 1991. If you've ever played Tecmo Super Bowl before, you're not only going to love this story, you're probably going to try and find that old NES and immediately fire up a game.
