    Of course, we love it when we get a lot of local NYC people competing in the NYCTSBT, and we already have a number of area residents scheduled to play.  But we know some guys are debating whether to come in from out of town, and we really want to encourage people to make that trip - we're putting together a great event, and it will be worth it.


    NYC is not always the easiest city to travel to, so I'm putting together some resources on the NETSBA site to help make your trip easier and more enjoyable.  The first thing I did was to research and write a bit about area hotels - I live right in the area of the tourney, so I used some first-hand knowledge of the neighborhood to put together a brief list of convenient, comfortable, and affordable places to stay.  You can check that out here:




    In the next week or two, I'll be putting together information on how to get around, where to eat, and what (non-Tecmo) things you can do in the area.  Astoria, Queens is my personal favorite neighborhood in NYC, so I hope you'll come join us for the tournament and perhaps a fun NYC weekend in a great neighborhood that doesn't often make it into the Lonely Planet guide.


    Also, please let me know, either through here or through the contact page on northeasttecmo.com, if there is any other information, advice, or prodding you need to make your trip to this year's event easier.

    Thanks! It seems to be pretty well received!  If that doesn't get you excited for Tecmo, I don't what will!  Thanks to Matt B who put tons of work into it.  :cool:


    Right now we have 20+ confirmed participants and quite a few people who are still trying to make plans to come that weekend.  If you have questions, please PM me or get at me at [email protected]


    One question I received about buy-in for the event: You can still sign up and pay for entry to the tourney the day of the event.  However, if you sign up via paypal before Oct. 1, it is 20% off of your entry.  Last year, there were quite a few people who were unconfirmed until pretty late.  That's completely fine if you have to work something out to attend, but this year we are trying to avoid that as much as possible so we can plan accordingly.

    Entrance to the tournament includes a chance at an assortment of raffle prizes.


    The first prize is a DVD of the 30 for 30 documentary "You Don't Know Bo" about the career of Bo Jackson.  Of course, Tecmo Super Bowl is in the documentary:





    The second prize is an original 1991 Nintendo Power magazine that contains an overview of TSB:





    The biggest prize of the day (besides winning a trophy) will be a copy of Tecmo Super Bowl 2014:





    There will also be a mystery box, which will include approximately $40 worth of 1991 football and Tecmo-centric merchandise.




    Also (not pictured), we will be raffling off a poster of the Tecmo Super Bowl field from NESmaps.

    Don't worry, I have you on the real finals list.  ;-)


    After seeing you guys play in the Philly tournament, there seem to be more players who have more than an outside shot to win the NYC tournament.  Out of players I know that are signed up, I tried ranking them but that was way too hard.


    I have been working on how to divide up the groups for the first round.  The groups are subject to change the day of the tourney, but I try to spread out the previously more successful players as much as I can.  I am looking forward to the new format and how that might impact how players perform.  One good thing about this year is that everyone advances, so even if you get stuck in a stacked group, you have the chance to battle back.


    I could be wrong, but I have a feeling there might be a dark horse out there this year who rises into the top 3.

    Any predictions? I have a feeling the final might be red98sethuthut vs powerade. Not that I'm jinxing you guys or anything... :cool:

    what in the name of "ickey woods" is going on here? Its shame joeygats, tsbgod and discdolo won't show up. Although "d.o.l.o" came a few years ago. Edited by red98sethuthut

    Currently we are at 38 participants, which is larger than last year's field, barring any last minute no-shows.  I can confidently say that we can accommodate at least 48 people based on promised equipment.  As for who is attending, there is a list of participants on northeasttecmo.com: http://www.northeasttecmo.com/new-york-city/participants/


    Last year we had the top 24 advance out of a field of 36.  It was single elimination until we got into the round of 8, then it became double elim.  Generally, I like the idea of double elim because it allows you to redeem yourself from a lousy game (fumbles, BS catches, etc.).  Last year was great, but I do feel like it went a bit long (of course, the quadruple OT game factored in).  One thing I like about this year is that everyone advances.  Normally I've never liked it, but it's set up in such a way that the players who perform better in group play will have anywhere from 1-3 BYEs.  This is the first time this is being tried in a tournament, as far as I know.


    I am not sure about the other tournaments, but from what I gather, Madison was very different due to the large number of participants.  The first round was groups of 8 in a double elimination bracket, and I believe it was then a huge pool of single elim until the top 8, when it became double elim again.  Midwest was similar to our current format, but only the top 8 or so receiving BYEs (which is how the NYC tournament was last year).  Other tournaments have experimented with a variety of formats.
