Super Smash Brothers Melee Tournament!

Wednesday, Feb 7, 2018

 

Description:Hello MD/VA Smashers! Hoss here hosting The Island Games' first ever Smash Bros Melee tournament with a $150 pot bonus! This will be a test run to see how we fit in at the venue since space is limited due to the EDH players being there on Wednesdays. This will also be a test for us to show the owner of the venue that we're a big enough community with enough interest towards the game and enough consideration/courteousness for the venue to be invited back to hopefully make this a weekly event, so definitely show good behavior and etiquette as well as a strong turnout. We'll be running singles only.

Venue opens for friendlies at 1:00pm

Singles starts at 7:00pm

$5 Venue Fee 
$5 Entry Fee

As far as rules go we will be using the MIOM ruleset except in regards to smashbox/boxx controllers, those will be allowed in the event that someone has a physical condition that prohibits them from using a regular gamecube controller. For more info on their ruleset check this link: http://www.meleeitonme.com/ruleset/

Currently we do not have a stream setup since it's a trial event but if anyone would like to assist us with one for that day then we'd greatly appreciate it. We definitely will be needing setups and CRT's. So far we're looking to accommodate between 8-10 setups total. Venue fee will be covered for anyone that brings a full setup including CRT for the tournament. If we can get a full number of 1.02 NTSC setups then we will be running UCF.

CRT's Currently: 1
Melee Setups: 2 Wii's 0 Gamecubes

Only warning I have ahead of time is that because we'll be sharing that specific day with other plays we may be limited to space.

There's plenty of great food options by the venue like a Chipotle, Subway, etc.

Any other questions or concerns about the tournament and venue just send a message to me or post about it in the discussion so we can address it. 

Thank you all so much and hopefully this runs smoothly so we can have this as a weekly tournament!

Special 2 Headed Giant Sealed Event - Feb 2

PLAY WITH A PARTNER

2v2

Share your openings and build 2 amazing decks that can either buff one another or bring twice the pain.

Starts at 7pm:

$20 Per person 8 packs per team. (5 rivals, 3 Ixalan)

Teams will get a 2 packs per win (one for each member)

Teams can share cards they pull from their sealed pools

Both players still must make 40 card decks

 

Two-Headed Giant is a fun multiplayer format where two-player teams battle against one another. Each team takes actions as a team rather than individually. There are some rules for Two-Headed Giant that differ from other multiplayer formats: Each team has a shared life total that starts at 30 life. Each team takes their turn together, meaning they draw as a team, attack as a team, block as a team, and go through all phases of the turn as a team. The team that goes first skips their first draw step. Teams do NOT share any resources other than life--meaning players can't share cards in hand or mana. The short way of remembering this is any reference to "you" on cards still means each individual player. Teams may share information and strategize together. The first mulligan is to seven cards, then each mulligan afterward results in one fewer card (six, five, four etc.). A teams loses when their life total is 0 or less, when they accumulate fifteen or more poison counters, or when either team member is unable to draw a card from his or her deck. Damage and loss of life happens to individual players, and the effects are applied to the team's shared life total. For example, once blocks are determined, any unblocked creatures are assigned to deal damage to one of the two players. Afterward, the damage is totaled and subtracted from the team life total. Effects that target "each opponent" or "each player" affect each team member separately. For example, when Rabid Bloodsucker enters the battlefield, each player would lose 2 life—meaning each team loses 4 total life.
