You all asked for it, and it’s happening…only bigger and better! The 2018 EWB Video Game Championships are being held Saturday July 14th! This year, we are Switching things up a bit and hosting the competition at The Mall at Johnson City. Entrants will begin by competing in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The Top 16 competitors from the Mario Kart qualifying rounds will move on to compete in challenges from various other Nintendo games as they try to advance to the finals! Trophies and prizes will be awarded to the top 3 finishers in the competition.
Everyone who pre-registers online will be given a 30 minute time block in the morning session to compete in races in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. We will also take walk-in sign-ups the morning of the competition to fill each time block. Scores from the set number of races will be recorded, and we will continuously update the current Top 16 in the tournament area and on the Facebook event page. Those who race in the earlier rounds are welcome to hang out for the day and watch more of the competition, or they can follow the Facebook page and return for the Top 16 round if need be. The Top 16 round is tentatively scheduled to start at 2 pm. (This will depend the on number of entries.)
