    I'm  happy to announce, with @rcv 's blessing, the winners of both of these tournaments will be awarded free entry into the Modano Mo Problems tournament in Minneapolis on February 29th!

    @rcv has got the passion and drive it takes to build a successful tournament following in Vancouver.  I strongly encourage all that are able to make his tournaments to do so.

    RCV is now part of an elite few of dedicated tournament organizers, who carry the torch, spreading the light of NHL94 throughout North America.


    Thank you for all the support brother, it means a lot! So many wonderful people in the community.

  2. Vancouver, Genesis and SNES Players!  Hope to see you all at The Battle of Vancouver


    Registration Link - https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/the-battle-of-vancouver-nhl-94-tournament-tickets-86470823561

    Start off the New Year by playing in the first NHL 94 Tournament of The Decade! 

    It's the first annual "Battle of Vancouver" where we'll crown the very best NHL 94 player on the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo! Join us at The Charles Bar in the heart of Downtown Vancouver for a day of competive retro video game hockey action and good times. There'll be cash prizes and a trophy for the winner! Additional prizes for participants and spectators!  

    $25 (plus fees) to register before Friday January 10th! $30 (plus fees) to register after Friday January 10th! FREE to spectate!

    Players that register before Friday January 10th get a FREE Breakfast Sandwich.

    ***Tournament Format:***

    Note: Unfortunately, due to time constraints you will not be able to compete in both tournaments at the same time.

    It's sixteen players, eight players in two divisions. Each division does a round robin to guarentee that everyone plays seven games! All playoff games are best of three. The top player in each division gets a "bye" into the second round of their division's playoffs with the player with the worst record being eliminated. Players ranked 2nd to 7th will be seeded in the playoff tree (2nd vs 7th, 3rd vs 6th etc). Rankings are based on the record from the round robin. After the divisional playoffs have been completed, the two finalists from each division face off in the finals to determine the champion! 

    ***Code of Conduct:***

    -Please be respectful of our host venue and of each other. Friendly trash talk is encouraged, but there is absolutely ZERO tolerance for violence, destruction of property etc. Basically in short, behave the way you would at a family member or close friend's house. If it gets to that point, you would automatically be disqualified and respectfully be asked to leave. Now that we've gotten that out of the way....

    -We will provide controllers for this event, however we encourage you to bring whatever Genesis / SNES compatible controller or joystick you choose. The only requirement is that there is NO turbo function or external power needed for the input device.

    -For anyone that brings their own equipment, please clearly mark your equipment so that it doesn't get misplaced.


    The Battle of Vancouver will use the official King of 94 World Championship rules. Please refer to the game Rules at the link below:


    ***What is the VCRGC - Vancouver Community Retro Gaming Club?***

    There's nothing quite like competitive gaming, but when it comes to the world of eSports there isn't enough options for people like us who prefer games of the retro variety. We want to change that and help grow a community scene with a series of monthly casual play meetups and money tournaments to make the stakes higher and more fun.

    From NHL 94 to NBA Jam, NFL Blitz, Street Fighter II etc, your favourite game from the greatest era of gaming matters! Let's rekindle that fire you remember as a kid together!

    Hello everyone, I'm new to the online NHL 94 world.  I saw the Vancouver BC world championship on Twitch and thought I should give this a try.  I used to play NHL 94 religiously decades ago, so I'm curious to see if I can get up to speed with the rest of you.  I'm looking forward to playing in the league if I can get in.

    Hey man I'm from Vancouver too and played at the tournament! It was so much fun and I'm trying to help build a stronger scene in our area. You should add me on Facebook (facebook.com/ryanventura604) and join the Vancouver Competitive Retro Gaming Club I started. We're gonna be doing meetups soon to just play casually to start. https://www.facebook.com/groups/334723767301923/

    Your camera takes phenomenal low-light pictures, what phone is that?? Looks like those were taken during the day, but you've got the Wayne's World violent gents shirt on so I think it's late in the event when it was quite dark?

    Great to hear that you enjoyed the event so much and that you want to build a community in the West. I think there's a lot of potential there.

    Jump on our Discord chat some time :) Here's the invite: https://discordapp.com/invite/0por6zfp5RodSFVL

    I got a Samsung Galaxy S9 :). Ya man I'm gonna help build a stronger scene here, I'll add you on the app! Hope to see you again soon. 

  5. Being at my first King of 94 was absolutely AMAZING! Some of the most fun I've ever had and I do a lot of dope s**t as it is lol. It was so much fun and inspired me so much to want to help build a stronger 94 community and retro competitive gaming community as a whole in BC and Western Canada.

    It was nice meeting you all! If you guys are on social media add me up, I use Facebook and Instagram quite a bit. I'm also going to be more active on this forum as well of course. Let's keep in touch and maybe play online as well!
