[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)



- 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. do you have results for the previous tournaments somewhere online?

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

I'll take a look later today.

@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?

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.

Ooooh, I'm gonna put this on my calendar now!  Looking forward to playing the 6x champ!  


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.

Ill probably play again.  Actually lost in the finals last year and in 2014.  The silver medal on the right Of the pic is from last year.  It’s fun but I’m I’ll be mostly at the convention hall and the concerts.


Nice, those are cool medals (and other swag).

Guys, sorry for such late update, but I've been having health problems.


Anyway, tourney is TONIGHT, Thursday March 28th, at 5:00 PM.


Hope to see you there!

Sorry to hear that you've been having health problems, get better soon

Have a good time at PAX and the tourney, let us know how it goes! I guess @crazygoalie33 will be there again.

I bought my ticket for Thursday hoping I will show up and stumble across an NHL 94 tournament. Otherwise, I'll just play in the classic console room by myself lol

If you go here and filter by 'tournament' there's no NHL tournament. But I don't know how accurate/up-to-date it is...


But there's NBA Jam:


Sat, Mar 25, 2023 • 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Location: Console Tourney

GoldenEye 007
Sun, Mar 26, 2023 • 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Location: Console Tourney

Maybe push the NBA Jam organizer to do a '94 next year :)

I'm really hoping it's not up to date. I already told my brother I'll just beat him real quick 1v1 if there's no tournament. The cartridge will be there in the classic console section.
