Well, @Ones11fahzu has two Tupa Bowl championships, Louis has one, and Mort has zero, so if *MAAYYYYYYBEEEE* Matt Miller shows up, he's the favorite, even if gats comes.

Awesome man! There will be a post-tournament local barcade thing again this year, and yes, they have NBA Jam. Glad to have you on board!

Happy to be working this with you.  It will be my first out of state tournament experience ever.  Been working diligently on the stream setup, and picked up the prepaid hotspot with Ethernet on it with the provider you suggested based on your own experience there.

 

As I do with any retro tournament now, if a Genesis is setup, and anyone wants to challenge me to mk or mk2, $20 awaits the first person to beat me on real hardware on a CRT.  We are certain to have some pauses in there.  In 17 years I have not parted with this $20.  With the world's Tecmo hordes massed against me, I can only hope there is one among you who is able to deliver to me, "a beautiful death".

This was a very memorable weekend for me.  I get greeted at the airport by @mort1237 and @kevincabarello who treated me like royalty.  I responded by demanding a Waffle House visit, and my subjects happily obliged.  Armed security, drunk women, chefs cooking with cell phones in one hand, and an impending drug deal witnessed by Mort kicked off an amazing weekend.  All that was missing was a Hepatitis C infection.

 

We hit the Old North Arcade, where nearly everything is on free play, then went our separate ways as we all had a big day on Saturday. Nice selection of games, and of course I did some damage on the Mortal Kombat machines.

At the recommendation of Kevin, we locked down a prepaid ATT hot spot with a built in Ethernet port based on his connection quality off his phone.  In 9 hours of streaming Saturday, we didn't drop a single frame.

 

@Jim Socks 13, @Woodshed, Eric Kuhlman, The Retro Sports Gamer, Louis, Mort, and The Ultimate Weapon all made guest appearances on the color mic.  It was an absolute riot.  The afforementioned Jim Socks and Woodshed opened with their own version of "In the Ware Tonight", which I believe is available on the Retro Sports Gamer Channel on Youtube.  It's not to be missed.

 

The setups were a plenty, and Kevin balanced playing, organizing with tenacity.  Louis and Mort were a big help setting up early.  The staff was friendly, the food was delicious, and the overall event a 10/10 in my book.  Way to go Mort for your victory, Joemama winning the Silver bracket, and Kevin for running a kickass event!  Here's to next year!

      Silver Champion - $75
      Silver Runner-up - $25
      Bronze Champion - $25
       
      RAFFLE DRAWING:
      In the afternoon, there will be a raffle drawing for various NFL, Tecmo, and Video game-related prizes available. Prices for the raffle tickets and the prizes available will be made available soon. 100% of the raffle prize money will be allocated towards the tournament winnings.
       
      RULES:
      1. 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.
      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 Cardinals-Falcons, 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 “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. 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.
      8. Take care of the bar staff!
