SNICK @ University of Minnesota - Weekend of 8/18

Post by InvadErGII »

I'll be holding a SNICK event the weekend of 8/18 to coincide with the local NASAT mirror. The exact date/time, as well as tournament format, are TBD, but I'm encouraging anyone who really wants to play this to play it here - let's call this the 'flagship' SNICK tournament. Cost will be $15 per player.

I'm hopeful to have enough people that this can be played in teams. You can sign up to play here. Go ahead and note your rad 90s-inspired team names, as well as any preference you might have on when during the weekend this takes place. A free agent column is there too if you don't have a team.

I'll probably be at this. I'll likely be pretty bad due to being born in 1995, but I can hopefully nab some video games and music points at the very least. Contact me if you wish to team up.

As of today, I haven't been approached about any other mirrors of this (though I know side event weekend plans are still coming together, generally). Depending on the amount of overlap, it could certainly still be held at both sites.

Update - as has been noted elsewhere, this will be the lone midwest site for SNICK (at least, for now).

This (and, I assume, other MNASAT side events) will be held on Sunday, August 19. $15 per player, field cap of 12 teams. There will be a bunch of awesome 90s-oriented prizes - I plan on getting some good stuff for the winners. As before, you can sign up here.

This isn't set in stone, but I would say that's my intention, yes.

Hey! If you're playing in this, please be at Room 150 in Blegen Hall (the usual place) by 8:45am or so on Sunday to check in. If you still need to sign up, the sheet is in the OP.

Congrats to Two Guys, Two Girls and a Pizza Place (Samantha Ross, Ashley Mergens, Derek Sillerud and Steve Ogdahl), who defeated an unnamed team featuring Rob, Andrew, Carsten, and Shan in the first game of a two-stage final to win SNICK. Stats are available here.

Thanks to everyone who played!
