NAVA Gamer's Gathering, July 29th: "Do The Donkey Kong"

NAVA = North Atlantic Videogame Aficionados. This is a FREE event bringing gamers together for competition, trading, and chatter.

Previously at NAVA...
- We celebrated the release of Street Fighter VI with an homage to ALL Street Fighter games across the ages!
- The arcade challenge was the original Street Fighter (1987). Rich M topped all scores for this challenge and earned a $20 gift certificate.
- The 6pm tournament was the PS5 version of Street Fighter VI. Rich M once again won the bracket, a clean sweep on the day's challenges!
- Gamers, collectors and friends shared their recent adventures and sold or traded their goods.

In This Month's NAVA: On July 9th, 1981, the world was introduced to Donkey Kong for the first time, upstaging the renowned Mario - who was known simply as "Jumpman" back then. Donkey Kong may have been upstaged, but his comeback in Donkey Kong Country cemented his popularity with Nintendo fans and even in the recent Mario movie is a favorite among many. He's certainly one of ours, let's play with him all day.

Arcade Challenge!: This is a no-brainer, as we have a dedicated DONKEY KONG cabinet inside. 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.

6PM EVENT! We're switching things up a little bit and hosting a live game show at 6pm. The game will be similar to Jeopardy, there will be three teams who will rotate the leader each round. Who knows their Donkey Kong trivia? 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.
