Tournament Weekend: Monkey Ball, DDR, and the Grand Championships!
This weekend, we'll have three videogame tournaments at the Downtown Library, with something for everyone, including food and prizes. First, we'll have an All-Ages Super Monkey Ball Tournament, Friday Night, 12/15, from 6-8:30 PM. Come play Super Monkey Ball, Monkey Target, Monkey Bowling, Monkey Dogfight, and even try your hand at Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz on the one and only Nintendo Wii! Read on for full details about the Monkey Ball event.
Then, on Saturday, 12/16, it's the biggest gaming event in town; the 2006 AADL-GT Super Smash Double Dash Grand Championships! The event starts at noon, with the Clan Cup for the top 8 clans from the regular season. Then we'll have the Wildcard Tournament for players in grades 6-12 who are new or didn't finish the season in the top 64. 8 wildcards will join the top players in the Grand Championship itself, with First Prize: a Nintendo Wii, Second Prize: a 2gb iPod Nano, and Third Prize: A Nintendo DS! It all comes down to this, have you got what it takes? This event will be broadcast live on CTN Channel 18, so a signed release form is required. Preregister before you come, and you can use self checkin and skip the line!
Finally, we'll wrap up the weekend with an All-Ages Dance Dance Revolution Tournament, Sunday, 12/17, from 1-4 PM. Prizes for the two best standard/heavy players, and for the best adult/child team! All events in the Multipurpose Room at the Downtown Library. Plus, stay tuned for Pokémon and DS Fest events during Winter Break!
OK, if you've got questions about the structure or schedule of the 2006 Grand Championships, they may be answered in this thread, and I'll still be answering questions there.
The Monkey Ball Event will have each player compete in each of 6 game modes:
Super Monkey Ball Main Game, Beginner Stages, 3 Lives
Super Monkey Ball 2 Main Game, Beginner Stages, 3 Lives
Monkey Target 2, 2 Monkey Balls, 6 Rounds, Items On
Monkey Dogfight, 3 minute Round
Monkey Bowling Normal, 10 Frames
Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz: Alien Spaceship Landing, 3 attempts.
We'll take your score from each of those 6 games and total it up. After everyone has had a chance to play all 6 games, we'll take the highest total scorers and they will face off in a series of elimination rounds including monkey fight, monkey race, and monkey target. It will be monkeytastic. First place wins a $20 gamestop giftcard, Second place wins $10, and third place gets a Tshirt.
DDR will be our usual 2-dance qualifiers and top players moving on to elimination as time allows. First prize: $30 to gamestop, Second prize: $20 to gamestop, Adult/Child prize: $10 to target.
Any other questions? Let's hear it!
