  1. Shout out to Tom and his crew on an amazing tournament. With everything going on it’s more like a big video game expo, from 10 foot HD screens with VR that anyone can play on, to multiple retro and current video game tournaments. They even had a lot of people show up for board game tournaments. Vendor booths/shops, food, drinks, free arcade, cosplay, and musical entertainment...it’s truly a sight to see. I’m not a Smash Brothers or Fortnite guy but it was awesome to see all the younger kids roll in with their parents and participate, they were truly excited. My only regret is not spending enough time with the Tecmo crew as I had to continually oversee my shop when I wasn’t playing 😢. It was great to see everyone from Ohio, NY, Michigan, and Wisconsin. And if I missed you or our conversations were short, I apologize. I got nothing but love for you all! Awesome run by @the_shield. I felt like I ran into a buzz saw there at the end, he truly played great. Well done everyone, here’s some pics.
  2. That feeling when you put up a kill screen on Robotron...Kev C is a beast IMG_7892.MOV
  3. ? I've been slacking, will sign up soon. Any list of participants?
  4. Awesome, hopefully I’ll be able to make it this year. I’ll try to make whatever dates you decide but if the Browns have a home game the following Sunday that’d be nice! I could prolly bring in 5-6 more guys from southern Ohio.
  5. Great job, now I have to look at this thing everyday I go to work...wouldn’t be surprised if it gets vandalized sometime soon.
  6. My kids birthdays are July 24th and July 25th. Talked the wife into having the party Friday July 27th so we don't take up people's Saturday ? In other words, I'm signed up and in!
  7. There is a good crew from southeastern Ohio coming. Good as in good time, not sure about the Tecmo skill, unfortunately I will also be out of the continental U.S. that weekend which is a bummer. But I am going to give someone going some money and have them pick me up a tee shirt, size XXL. Will def make it in 2019 if not on vacation! Last year was a blast, Tom goes above and beyond for this tournament. Still one of the best after tourney times I've had. Playing Sega/SNES at the 16 bit bar with the whole bar chanting to Family Feud. Then spending $18 on gas station food and watching @red98sethuthut destroy a gas station burrito...good times.
  8. Trying to make this work. With the Browns opening game September 9th, its hard to get two weekends away in the same month. But definitely interested, forecast is 70% at this point.
  9. So mad/sad I missed this EXPERIENCE. Its like when your friends all go on an awesome, one of a kind trip and you can't make it cause a family member died. All the while you're just thinking about what you're missing out on. Good show fellas
  10. Hey Jim, I live in Georgia now, but I'm from Ironton, Ohio.

  11. My main question is has anyone lost a major tournament game and thought "If I would have won the coin toss in order to get P1 or took P1 after the matchup call I would have had it"? I know everyone has their preference but again thats a preference and not a real advantage. I hope that every TSB player has played from both sides and know that they might be forced to play from P2. The only advantage is the onside kick and if you need to get that at some point the chances are slim, I'll let Bru provide the percentages. And to be clear, I prefer the old way. But I'll take matchup over controller preference any day of the week as most have already stated. Bottom line is not everyone is gonna be happy with whatever is/was decided. It still beats the hell out of predetermined or tiered match-ups. And finally, rules tweaks rules schmeeks. Just ball out brothers! Can't wait to see everyone
  12. A friend sent this tournament to me. It is the original Tecmo Bowl so I probably won't be attending but thought I'd share. Nice prizes for the winner (32" Smart TV & NES Classic). You can read about it/sign up here: http://staydriven.org/tecmobowltournament/
  13. Kev did an amazing job of putting this thing together. It ran smooth and Kevin killed it by running the whole show pretty much by himself while playing in the tourney as well. Granddads Pizza was a great host as well. I felt this tournament was tight knit, meaning that I really got to know a small group of guys. All of them being 100% awesome, DT in particular. That guy made me laugh so many times throughout the day. I hate that he is heading back west but hope to see him again soon. Mort and Louis are a great time to play Tecmo with but probably a better time to go out with after. I feel that I owe Louis more than the 3 Spotted Cows I gave him as guilt pay for winning two games that I shouldn't have. I guess the serenading we did pre-tournament swooned the Tecmo Gods in my favor. Diaz.....well if anyone has met Diaz you already know, and if you haven't you're missing out. His wife was also incredibly cool with just hanging out all day and mingling with us Tecmo dudes. Matt Miller I've talked to a good bit at other tourneys and always very gracious. I agree that he needs some beer penalty imposed every tournament! JK the guy is darn good. I think I went 9-2 overall but won't break it all down. I lost to Mort 24-21 in semi-finals and Matt got me 17-3 in tournament play after i beat him in a pickup the first game of the day. Should have saved the Pittsburg matchup for our game. I think about 4 of my wins came from Pittsburg. Some of the pictures are of the amazing door prizes, Mort winning the most passing yards with Tupa, SNES shenanigans at 16 bit, and all the final 8 guys. If I missed something or someone, I apologize. After 10:00 it all became a brown out.
