Format : Group play will precede bracket play, first SNES, then Genesis.  There is an initial 32 player cap for this tournament.  If we receive additional interest and have taken in payment, we will take measures to increase the tournament size.

Rules : 5 minute periods, penalties on, no offside, manual goalie.  If it's in the game, it's in the game.  No game mechanics are banned.  Examples are pass shots, CB checks, hail mary shots, goalie interference goals, rebound goals on penalty shots, etc.    A coin flip winner will be the home team(player 1) and call the matchup.  The opposing player is the away team(player 2) and choses which of the two teams they want for that matchup.  A player cannot call a matchup more than once during the tournament.  These roles are reversed for game two of a playoff series.  If the series goes to game 3, another coin flip and matchup selection must be performed.  Games cannot end in a tie.  A new game must be started in the event of a tie game at the end of overtime.  Intentional time wasting in your own zone is prohibited.  You must attempt to advance the puck into the opposing zone whenever possible.  Players caught abusing this may have goals deducted, or in extreme cases the game awarded to the opposing player.  Players are required to take a photo of their score and report to the scorekeeper.  There is a 10 goal deficit mercy rule.  The game is over once a 10 goal difference is reached.  10 goals is the max goal differential counted.  Players are permitted to bring their own OEM or approved 3rd party controllers.  All other equipment is provided by us, however we could use your help(see down below)

Payout : 100% of money taken in from child entries will be paid out, 50% to each bracket.  For each $30 entry, $8 goes to the SNES bracket, $8 to the Genesis bracket, and $10 to the venue for hosting us and providing the VR experience.  An approximate 60/30/10 split payout will be for each bracket to 1st/2nd/3rd place.

Hotel Accommodations :There are multiple locations within 2 minutes driving distance, including one that can be walked to from the venue.  We are working on setting up a group rate and will update this thread when we have it.  We are about 3 minutes from the Airport in Green Bay.

For those wondering where to stay, the Hotel J is a 2 minute walk away from the venue, or a 10 minute crawl if you overindulge.
Hotel J
Address: 2620 S Packerland Dr, Green Bay, WI 54313
Phone: (920) 499-1900
 

What types of systems are used for this? : All Genesis systems and controllers are OEM.  All screens used are CRT, which means no input lag.  SNES are a mix of 1st gen, model 2, and NOAC clone units.  All controllers are either OEM or Cirka brand clones, which work very well. 

Will this be streamed? : Yes, unless otherwise stated you can follow the action on twitch.  Please favorite www.twitch.tv/trojan1979.  We may also have @kingraph and The Retro Sports gamer stream via wifi hotspot on their own stations for additional coverage.

Can I dress up in hockey attire? : Yes, you will basically be put in the sin bin if you don't get into character.

How can I help the tournament organizers? : In addition to making an early commitment to attend, we ask that you share the existence of this tournament, early and often, on all forms of social media.  Make plans to travel with friends, and make this a destination.  We are also in need of some additional SNES systems.  At this time, we own about 12 Genesis systems, but only 3 or 4 SNES systems.  Anyone willing to bring an SNES setup would be of great help.  That would include, a console, composite hookups, two controllers, and game copy.

Thanks Aqua!  We are ready for the SNES community to add to the fun of all of this.  Build it and they will come as they say.  We are building it, time for the community to make the journey!  :)

Ordered a couple more SNES NHL94 carts yesterday.  Who's got a spare system/controllers they can bring?

I am strongly considering attending, will try to nail this down by the end of the month.  If I go, I can also bring a console.

Once you commit, the rest of the guys will buy in.  Hopefully this happens.  Go buds go!  :)

I've been both of Troy's tournaments and have enjoyed myself throughly each time. The setup is always great, the organization is on point, and the production value is high. Troy always makes sure everyone is taken care of and I highly recommend attending his events.

 

I plan on being there and playing in both tournaments. The NHL 94 is great and the side games are always something to behold. Tecmo super bowl, street fighter 2, and mortal Kombat 1 & 2 are popular side games. If you play Troy in any of those titles, bring your A+ game or prepare to take a beating. 

Looking forward to seeing the great lakes buds again.

Just to reinforce something that has been somewhat confusing.  Everyone is automatically entered into both tournaments.  If you go, you are expected to participate in both.  The prize $$ is split evenly between both.  If you are a Genesis guy, you can still mash buttons on an SNES and keep your pride.  I'm at best a B level guy on Genesis, and I'm even worse on SNES.  That being said, there should be varying levels of competition across the board for both tournaments.

Also if you are able to beat me in Mortal Kombat, I will allow you to cross check me into the building, as long as you drive me to the hospital.

I wanted to give some insight to the company that is behind the VR Arcade, our venue.  This is what they bring to their passion.

Guys, Angryjay just told me he booked directly into GB, apparently flights are priced really well as of last week.  I'd take a moment and look at it.

Well, we are months ahead of schedule, and it looks like we already have the same number of verbal commitments, as we had players last tournament.  It's looking up guys!

@kingraph confirmed he booked his flight today, so he's in!  I'll be meeting with the venue owners tomorrow to discuss the creation of a promotional video, as well as getting that waiver created.  I'm hoping in a couple weeks to have signups official for Paypal.

With the passing of HFD #NHL94 player #ZarleyZalapski, we will be honoring him in the tournament by awarding a prize to whoever has the most total points(goals, assists) scored by Zalapski in group play. It's time to start practicing matchups with Hartford! Just take a picture of the scoring summary after the match has concluded. Stay tuned for a future update involving a side challenge featuring tournament namesake Theo Fleury!

Green Bay's 'Piano Man' Dan Rafferty has just been secured as our live organist for our NHL94 tournament!  Dan is 1/2 of Dueling Piano duo, NEW Piano Guys. His piano improvisation has entertained Northeast Wisconsin for the greater part of 25 years. Talented, yes! Bald, you bet! Entertaining, you be the judge!  Dan will be accompanying tournament organizer Troy "Trojan" Frisque in the opening ceremonies with both national anthems, Oh Canada, and The Star Spangled Banner!  Dan will also fill the air with familiar hockey arena riffs heard at hockey games world wide!
