Competition at May Event
« on: April 20, 2010, 06:24:58 PM »
Here we go again  ;D

After it went well at the last open event I have been asked to do another Bomberman Competition 

Maximum of 24 players....Although I can run with 16 if needed

Round 1

4 players - First to 3 wins goes through - 6x rounds to play - 6 winners go through to Round 2

Round 2

2 players - First to 3 wins goes through - 3 winners go through to Final
(3x to play if 24 players)

Final

3 players - First to 5 wins 1st Prize.
2nd Place will go to the remaining player with the highest number of rounds at this point.
3rd  Place will go to the remaining player with the lowest number of rounds at this point.
If 2 & 3 are drawn at this point then a sudden death 1 round play off to decide 2nd & 3rd

£4 to enter - payable on the day at sign up
3rd prize - RCM mug
2nd prize - RCM polo shirt
1st prize - RCM fleece

We may need to order the polo shirt & fleece for the winners as we only have so many in stock

Please let me know if your interested and I will sign up the first 24 people on the day.

Good Idea....I'll bear that in mind for the next event...Have got a couple of ideas we're looking into.

Cheers

The Bomberman tournament was awesome, even though I failed miserably at it!

It really is a great "party" game!

I do agree with the messages left in the feedback section though, a PA would have helped out a lot.

Bomberman just worked so well as a tournament game, I think other mini tournaments could have been fun too, maybe a street fighter II tournament or a high score run on games such as Sonic too. That said though, I think they would be nice to have as well as the Bomberman tournament, as they would be over a lot quicker and could go on through the whole day.

High score competition was done before and also mario kart on the snes. The great thing about bomberman is that anyone can play and have a chance of winning. More people are likely to join in and have a go for that reason alone.

I agree, it's a very easy to pick up game. Although I went out in the first round this time :'(

Thank's for the feedback about the competition.

The reason we have run Bomberman twice now is as you have said above....it easy for anyone to play.

We are open to suggestions for more games to consider for next time...ideally be four player

I already have the following to bear in mind:-

Mega Drive - Micro Machines
Atari 2600 - Warlords

And some muppet of a gamer won his own bloody booby-prize for the quickest suicide .. can't think who that was... oh yes, that muppet would be me :)

But at least someone else went home with that pristine copy of Rise of the Robots :)
