  1. NY Tecmo is only four weeks away!! Here's the first of the raffle prizes, 18 x 12 cover art canvas print
  2. We did a draft where the new guys drafted first, and then players who played in tournaments before drafted. We ordered it based on tournament experience and results. Matty D got the last pick in both conferences (Colts and Packers). Yes, it is crazy that in the two drafting tournaments this year that the Packers have been Champs. It's a testament to how good those players are. Also, IMO, the Packers are the best out of the crap teams. I think of them as a lesser version of the Falcons (with the bonus of Bob Nelson).
  3. Thanks to all who came out to the Long Island Retro Tournament! This is the third year that we've had a tournament at the Cradle of Aviation Museum and the 4th year at the Expo! The top finishers for the tournament are: 1) Matty D 2) Brett F 3) Pat H Scott S, Danny K, and Bill M all made the quarters. Brett F., finishing second, was the best performing newcomer, so he'll get free admission to the New York Tecmo Super Bowl Tournament on October 19th. Special thanks to George, Chris, and Joel at LI Retro allowing us to do this for the past four years. The finals were exciting and the Pat H victory over Matty D in OT was especially nailbiting. Special props to Pat H for taking both his teams (CLE, ATL) to the semi-finals. You can check out photos here: https://www.facebook.com/NYTecmo/ Thanks again to the NHL 94 crew for sharing this experience with us and helping out when we needed it. Special thanks to NHL 94 guru John for participating in his first Tecmo tournament (!), and my personal friend John and his son for helping set up and break down. On a personal note, this was the first time I didn't play in a tournament I have run. It was definitely a different experience, but still had a lot of fun. I played in NHL 94 again and finished in the top 8. Every NHL94 tournament I have ever played I have finished in the top 8, but no better, no worse. As for people curious about the format, we had 16 participants (8 of whom were new) where each person drafted two teams, one AFC and one NFC. The new guys all drafted first with the veterans drafting in descending order based on tournament experience and success. Since there are only 28 teams, a few teams (HOU, RAI, GIA, PHI) were allowed to be drafted twice. @[email protected]@Thrash
  4. I know what I'm streaming all day today: http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/tool-catalog-now-available-via-digital-service-providers/
  5. One of these days we'll be able to afford the Tecmo party bus to shuttle people to these tournaments. LIRR kinda goes out to the area. If you can get into Penn Station and take LIRR out, it's about a $10 cab ride to the venue from the station. I might be able to convince someone to do a pickup from the station. I think the Shaq Fu tournament is more thought of as a fun joke. I also want to put in a plug for the NHL94 tournament as those guys do an excellent job of running it. Highly recommended.
  6. Hey @hankthetank! We had 32 last year and usually average around 30-40 competitors. First place is usually around $200-250 though last year I put a little more of the raffle money to the top 3 so it might have been over $300 for first. Cheap places to stay depends on how close/far you are willing to stay near the venue. You can post here to see if anyone will offer to host or wants a traveling buddy. 🙂

  8. The format info has been updated! Should provide for some interesting matchups.
  9. Following the Freedom Trail is generally what you should do if you've never been to Boston as it passes by many historic sites and gives you a good feel for the bulk of the city. It's about 2-3 miles and I believe it starts in Boston Common (there are a couple of trails now I think). You can always deviate from it if you wish. Italian food and pastries in the North End is also a pretty typical tourist thing, but nonetheless it's still pretty good. Also, Cambridge is probably worth seeing (Harvard Sq) and Sommerville has some pretty cool spots. Those places are "outside" Boston, but they are easy to get to on the T. I usually end up spending time in Back Bay when I've gone mostly because I knew people at BU.

  11. Okoye, Neal Anderson, and Bruce Smith. That has to be one of the best combo of players in the game with the same face.

Scores from each half are added together to form final score. Ties are allowed in pool play. If the game is tied in elimination play, then a new game is started with the first person to score being the winner. Any malfunction caused by human error may result in an automatic forfeit due to the discretion of the tournament organizers. Onside Kicks: Onside Kicks are okay anytime (aka, "at your own risk"). Lurching: Lurching is not allowed (dive tackling over the line of scrimmage with a DL). DL use is allowed, but you must either go outside the Offensive Tackle or grapple an OL to rush.
