Is there a link to where we can find the 2v2 rom?

 

It’s the standard Tecmo Super Bowl cartridge. The 2v2 refers to teams. Here’s some additional info from our website - www.tundrabowl.com/2v2 

 

The 2019 2v2 TSB Tourney will follow the basic Tundra Bowl rules, with the exception of a couple pre-game declarations:
  1. Team Selection & Coin TossA manual coin-flip will precede each game. The coin-flip winning team can choose the matchup (i.e. the two teams) or defer the matchup choice to the coin-flip losing team. If the winning team chooses the matchup, the winning team is given the P1 controller, and the losing team chooses their choice of the two teams in the matchup. If the winning team defers the matchup choice, the winning is given the P2 controller,  the losing team will then choose the matchup and the winning team will select their choice of the two teams. In summary, the winning team of the coin toss either gets P1 and choice of matchup or P2 and choice of teams.
  2. Declaration of Roles: The team that ends up being P1 after the pre-game coin toss must declare FIRST the following (prior to kickoff): which player is to play which quarters OR which player is to play offense, while the other plays defense. If the team selects the QUARTERS option, no player can play more than two quarters (with the exception of overtime) in the game.  In the case of an overtime, either player can play the first overtime period, but must alternate each OT period if 2 or more is necessary. If the team selects the SIDE OF BALL option, the players must control their side of the ball for the entire game, overtime(s) included. The team that ends up as P2 declares their roles after P1 Team declares.

@RetroNathan is the webpage going to be updated with all the registrants for the tournament? or did I just go to the wrong section like some kind of noob tournament participant?

 

You’re probably on the right page - it will be updated. I typically wait until closer to the date for who is all registered, thinking in a few weeks I’ll post it. Still tracking down some registration info from people who paid. We’ve got basically a 50/50 split (+1 difference) between Division 1 and Division 2 registrants so far.

Just received word that Harry will also have copies of his newly released book, Win From Within, available for purchase (you can also purchase from Amazon ahead of time if you'd wish to). Harry will sign those, and is willing to sign your items as well (49ers gear, Packers gear, TSB carts, etc.). We are suggesting a $5 minimum donation to his charity, My Brother's Keeper, as all proceeds from the signing go to his charity.

With Tundra Bowl VI - Tecmo Super Bowl Tourney Pres. by Game Trade (Jan. 26) right around the corner, we decided to throw one last Tecmo Super Bowl satellite tournament on JANUARY 11th to encourage new players and returning vets to brush up on their skills before GAME DAY!! We will run this satellite tournament very similarly to TBVI, with group play and a bracket. Bracket play will be single elimination, but may be altered to a double elimination should time allow for it (determined at start of satellite tourney).

Here's the important info:
*Satellite tourney will cost only $10/player and includes a FREE Drink Ticket AND a FREE Ice Cream/Breadstick Order from another one of our local sponsors - Heartland Pizza Company!*
*NFL Prizes will be given away to lucky players as door prizes!* 
*The WINNER of this satellite tourney on Jan. 11th receives a FREE Weekend Pass to Tundra Bowl VI or Tundra Bowl VII!*

The tournament will start at 6:00pm at The Watering Hole - Green Bay, WI on the 11th, but stations will be set up a little earlier for you to come and practice on. Register ONLINE, or pay at the door. Hope to see you all on January 11th as we prepare for Tundra Bowl VI!

Just as a heads up - 2v2 teams are filling in fast (see first post in this thread...TBVI and RetroMania entrants there as well), and we only have about 4 spots left for teams to get in the mix!! If you're on the bubble, I'd register sooner rather than later.

8-Bit you can carpool but then you have to hang out with Collins (Faster Than A Speeding Beebe)  and I and that will mean a great night of action Friday.  Collins knows of all of the hot spots in the Appleton/ Green Bay Area.  It may lead to poor performance play as well.  Believe me I was feeling it the next day.  LOL.

 

 Friday night 3:00 am partying and then Tecmo = Steve Grogan mixed with Glenn Koslowski mixed with Paul Skansi on the rocks with Anthony Dilweg.

 

RetroNathan does throw a great tourney though and you will not be disappointed.  Well worth the trip for some quality Tecmo with a great group of guys.

 

Sammie Smith, 8-Bit, Nostradamus, People's Champ, and all, the Friday pre-party will kick off at Cover 2 Sports Bar located at 207 N Washington St, Green Bay, WI 54301.  5:00 p.m.  Hopefully Sammy can shake off the cobwebs on Saturday!

Awesome you guys are all making it! I'll be at The Watering Hole early (2:30pm), so whenever you guys are done with the pre-party, feel free to drop in. I know Sammie is in the 2v2 Tecmo tourney, and that will start at 6:00pm as a heads up. See you guys next week!
