In This Month's NAVA: Mario-Palooza! With the release of the successful Super Mario Bros animated movie, everyone's talking about Mario. Let's talk over a game featuring Mario. As always, there will be game systems set up around the store for everyone to play, featuring this month's theme!

Arcade Challenge: Mario's first foe, Donkey Kong, had a Junior. After the events of Donkey Kong, Junior was tasked to save his dad in Nintendo's aptly-titled DONKEY KONG JR. Be the best at this game on this one day by logging the highest score on our arcade cabinet by 9pm and win a nifty $20 gift certificate. Arcade challenge games are set to FREE PLAY all day, but please remember to let everyone get a shot. If you get the high score, move on, and no hogging the cabinet! Also if you have won last month’s arcade challenge you are not eligible to win this month’s challenge.

Tournament! There is almost no better head-to-head game that could ALSO be co-op than Nintendo's 1983 classic MARIO BROS. Luigi was introduced here, and the brothers fight to clear out the sewers. The brothers aren't "Super" just yet, and enemies are damaged by being hit from BENEATH and then kicked off the screen! What NAVA attendee can outplay any opponent? Let's find out. Sign-ups begin at 3pm, the tournament starts after 6pm and its first-come, first-served in this FREE-to-join tournament.

Remember, feel free to bring a box or two of your trade goodies. We'll help you administer sales and get you set up somewhere in the store to sell your goods. NAVA is a time for trading! Also, if you have a Digital Press or NAVA t-shirt, wear them for a for an additional 5% discount on our already low-low prices Image removed. If you don't have a Digital Press t-shirt, ask us how to buy one while you're here.
