GameClucks Thursday Night Fights is a weekly event in the Seattle area. It is organized by GameClucks and is (often) held at Another Castle Video Games in Edmonds, WA (just 20m north of
Seattle) and sponsored by Another Castle Video Games, NOS Energy Drink,
Plantronic Gamecom, and Eightarc. We started out these events as just a place to meet up and get games, but have since grown to include weekly tournaments and a stream as well.Who's Coming?
Most of the discussion takes place on each week's Facebook event page
. Invites are sent out to all members of the Northwest Street Fighter
group. Most players do not RSVP until the day of, but we typically have between 10-20
attendees. Every week we have 8-14 entrants for a $10 AE 2012 tournament. Our 8-man UMvC3 tournaments have been $2 entry until the scene grows. We have KOF XIII most weeks (discussion happens in KOF Northwest
) ranging from just casuals to $2 tournaments, to 8-man $5 tournaments. We recently held a 8-man $2 SFxT 2013 tournament. Finally, some players show up for P4U casuals as well. Most players do not arrive until an hour before their game starts, we highly recommend you do the same.Community
You'll find that attendees are very welcoming and we can easily give you
advice or let you know where to find games near you. Our players range
from some of the best in our region (such as Riki-Oh
) to players that are new to these games and
are looking to level up or just get casuals in.
