For starters, I wanted to point out that the title of the event has been expanded from our old "Gaming and Health Day" to the inclusion of "Geek.' The events have always included stuff like comic books, and sci fi, but we really wanted to get more inclusive with what people can expect. Plus having more than just games really makes this feel like the mini Con that its starting to become.
So the first inclusion of events that I want to share with you all is actually gaming related (I know, after I made the comment about being more than just gaming). We're going to be hosting a GoldenEye tournament. This will be in addition to our traditional Smash Bros. Tournament, and with GoldenEye we'll be digging out our classic N64 gear. This takes me back. While I was studying at Saint Vincent my buddies and I would frequently have Halo nights (there'll be more Halo news for us later, I'm so excited), but every now and again we'd dust off the N64s and throw down on GoldenEye, Conkers, or Mario Tennis. Many larger scale Cons will have a GoldenEye tourney hidden away in their schedule somewhere, so we're proud to bring it to ours. A good friend of mine and 007 aficionado has graciously volunteered to help pull this together, so I'll have more info on times here shortly. But for now let's just get excited about some classic N64 greatness.
Keep coming back here as we reveal more of the schedule and some more info about our guests and sponsors. I'm so pleased that this is looking like the best show we've had so far, with plans to continue to improve. Please share in the comments about some of your favorite tournament games official, dorm room, or otherwise. We'd love to hear about it. And definitely check out and share around our Facebook event page. You can find it right HERE!
Looking forward to making some more announcements in the coming days and weeks. Check back with you all soon,
All the best,
