[March 28-31, 2019 - Boston MA] Annual NHL 94 GENS Tourney at PAX East

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I'm an Enforcer at PAX East, and I've been running a GENS NHL 94 tournament for the last 6 years. The same guy keeps winning, so we need new blood!!!

Current dates for PAX East are tentative! I will be running a whole slate of 16 bit tourneys this year; I will update this thread with specific days and times as the schedule firms up. I'm hoping to have a 2on2 tourney as well, and possibly a 2on2 Mod free play session. (I have an Everdrive, so we can play mods on original hardware)

 

Details:

- Sega Genesis. I might run a SNES tourney this year as well, if I can get enough interest. (Boston is Genesis territory)

- Usually around 32 participants.

- Single elimination. I use Brackalope, so if under 32, a few people get Bys, if over 32, a few people get an extra round.

- Free, just your PAX East Pass

- Prize is gold and bronze medals for first and second place

- Full rules are listed below.

 

Comments, questions, are WELCOME.

@Zippy Forgive me, I have no idea what this is. Where will this be held? What is PAX East? There are no cash entries/prizes for this event?

In theory, yes... but the Enforcer wiki is poorly-administered, whole sections have disappeared in the past.

I'll take a look later today.

PAX East is an enormous 4 day convention held in Boston every March/April. It focuses on video games (PC, consoles, classic console, VR) and tabletop gaming (Roleplaying, board games, card games, etc. etc.)

I work in the Classic Console department, and we have tournaments every day. The tourneys are free to enter, and yes, there are no cash prizes, only trinket medals.

It's a really good event, I can recommend it to everyone. If you have any specific questions, feel free to ask here or PM me.

AWESOME!

Don't forget, though, that buying tickets is difficult, as the event sells out fast. 4 day passes sell out first. I will post here as soon as ticket sales open.

Also... it's a 4 day event, and since the schedule is not yet set, I'm not sure which day the NHL 94 tournament will be held. I will update this thread as soon as I have more info.
