Retro Game Night 2

PLAZA DISTRICT, LocalLamboComment

     A few months ago we thought it would be fun to host a "Retro Game Night." Y'know, whip out all of those dusty Nintendos and relive that childhood nostalgia. Well we did just that, and it was such a fun night that we decided to do another one. We spiced up the first Retro Game Night with a Super Smash Bros. tournament and people were really loving it, so this time around we decided to go with a MarioKart64 tournament. After several days of brainstorming I came up with the perfect idea for a trophy and immediately got to work. Since MarioKart64 offers two forms of gameplay, we decided to double the fun and not only do a VS Racing tournament, but a Balloon Battle tourney as well! With the help of Zach Hatlestad and Bad Granny's Bazaar we were able to crank out a few memorable advertisements for the event. If you haven't seen them yet, please click the links provided in the last sentence, you wont regret it....... With a great turnout, and plenty of classic games, we all had a blast!
