Tournaments

All tournaments will take place Saturday and Sunday June 8th and 9th.

Tabletop tournaments:

  • Yomi
  • Puzzle Strike
  • Flash Duel

Video game tournaments

  • Street Fighter HD Remix
  • Puzzle Fighter HD Remix

Beta games

The beta games will be showcased on June 7th. This is an optional day of the event, and has an extra cover fee due to the extra cost of facilities and materials. We'll demonstrate and allow you to play:

  • Pandante, a panda-themed gambling game based on lying
  • Codex, a not-collectable, yes-customizable card game that's been in the works for a LONG time

Who should come?

Note that this is not just a local event. It's located right next to the San Francisco International Airport to make travelling as easy as possible. There's even a free shuttle from the airport to the hotel. There will be several Canadians coming, can you beat them on distance travelled?

One reason to come would be if you're actually good at any of these games. You don't want to let some shmoe win do you? That said, all skill levels are welcome. Attending a tournament is usually quite a learning experience regardless of your skill or lack of it. Even if you don't enter any tournaments at all, plenty of casual play is encouraged as well. It's fun to be in an environment with like-minded people and to make new friends, so you might be interested in attending for the social aspects alone.

To sweeten the pot, I'll teach anyone who attends the optional day on June 7th how to play two of my new games in development. You'll be getting a sneak peak that the public hasn't seen yet. One of the games is easy to learn, while the other is very complex and the kind of thing you're meant to play for 10+ years. Get a headstart on everyone else just by showing up.
