[April 7-8, 2017 - Madison, WI] - Tecmo Madison: Friday Night Retro (NHL 95 - GENS)

23 posts in this topic

Howdy, gents! I know I am not a supremely active member, but am your brother in retro gaming as an admin from TecmoBowl.org. I am just gonna drop this a little diddy here because my buddy @segathon and I have joined mythical forces to bring an epic weekend opener to my Tecmo Madison tournament, Tecmo Madison: Friday Night Retro!

Mods, if this is not allowed or needs further clarification, shoot me a PM.

Friday night has been blown out. Starting at 6:00PM, Friday, April 7th, head to the High Noon Saloon in downtown Madison, WI for Tecmo Madison: Friday Night Retro!

In addition to the usual registration, equipment drop-off, practice games and beer drinking, Segathon.com will be sponsoring an NBA Jam: Tournament Edition tournament and an NHL95 tournament — both on Sega Genesis! Both tournaments will have cash prizes, various game specific autographed items and trophies. Be crowned the first ever Tecmo Madison: Friday Night Retro champion in either game!

But, that is not all. It is NOT ALL! Tecmo Madison XIII will also feature a play-in tournament for those on the wait list! Top 2 are guaranteed placement into Saturday’s main event!

….but wait, there’s more… we will have a mini Tecmo Super Bowl tournament with some not so Tecmo Madison rules. Trust me, you’ll want to play in this. Even I will have a chance to beat Regulator.

All events are open to the public, you do not have to be participating in Tecmo Madison XIII to enjoy the evening’s festivities. The cover to get in is $0 – yes, FREE! Each tournament will have a small entry fee to fund the cash prizes.

Good beer, good retro gaming and good pizza. Friday night is going to be awesome. Don’t miss out.

Long Live Tecmo,
davefmurray

My car will be loaded to the gills with Sega Genesis's to bring a little Segathon to Madtown on Friday night.  I need to figure out the details with time and running 2 different games but I'll figure it out soon.  If you were on the fence about coming to Madison for a Tecmo weekend hope this puts you over.

That sucks, bud. Maybe next year's Friday Night Retro can feature the real NHL game. I'll blame @segathon for your absence.

Updated this post with vids of the 4 main scoring moves in NHL 95 for rookies and guys that need to shake the rust off.  It's a few post down from my wordy guide

Wait until I pull off my one-handed Down+B against you in the finals. It is the ultimate demoralizer which leads to your crumble and demise!

If you would like to make a change at intermission, please notify your opponent that you wish to do, so they can allow you the time before the start of the next period.  And try to be quick
  • Don’t pause during game, if you have to pause do it when you have puck in your own zone
  • No banned scoring moves, but you always have to try to score.  If you are up you can’t skate around behind your own net to kill time

53 who RSVP'd to a FB event page. Attendance is well over 100 at this point. I stopped counting at 100 because once past the century mark it gets nerve wrecking.

I'll be sure to pimp NHL94.com  

It's the big tecmo tourney that is bringing them in, but guys are really pumped to play JAM & NHL. 

Getting a little worried we may have to cap the number of participants, two game tourneys running on a dozen segas in 4 hours time frame could turn into a shitshow.  Have an APB out to all Segathoner's to search boxes in their garage for sega stuff,
