  2. Come join us Friday night in Philly at Too Many Games for an NHL '94 tourney!

  3. The goal is to keep it as simple as possible. We are going to be having a lot of tournaments and have a limited amount of time. We are also going to experts playing as well as novices, so we want to keep the team selection process as easy as possible. There's no perfect way, and if the coin flip doesn't satisfy enough people that actually play in the tournament, we can definitely look into adjusting the rules.
  4. For example, if 64 people sign up for the NHL 94 tournament, then the group round would consist of 16 groups of 4 players. The top 2 in each group would move on to the single elimination bracket, so the 1st round of the elimination bracket would be Round of 32. With the coin flip, most often the winner will choose to select the team rather than home/away, but if you do win the coin flip, you do get first choice in team or to be home/away. You can't pick the same team. So if you and I played, and I won the coin flip, I'd choose to select my team first (e.g. Penguins). Then you get to choose who is home or away and then your team.
  5. The Satellites events are not restricted to a specific format. The difference between Tecmo Madison and the rest of our events is that we are partnering with Tecmo Madison to make it a Satellite event. We have no intention of changing what they do. The other events are being hosted by the RWS at various conventions in large booths we've rented. Since we are having three at each convention, and each convention is only two days long, we are restricted due to time constraints on the format we can have. Tecmo Madison is an established tournament dedicated to one game that lasts all day, so they are fully capable of having the format that best suits them. For example, if we were to partner with King of 94 to make it a Satellite event, there would be no change to its format at all. As far as the 94 tournament at the Main Event, there will be a group round robin of four players in each group. Each player in a group will play each other once. The top two in each group will advance to the single elimination bracket. The semifinals and finals (the last 4 players) will play on that Sunday when all of the semis and finals will be played.
  6. LOL Can't have them all in one year. The great thing about retro gaming is there's literally hundreds of good ones to choose from, so if this is successful this year, we can keep adding new games year after year. Bad News is on the list.
