    Call the Gamer's Paradise crew again.

    I haven't had the chance to. I honestly think they're our best bet.

    The main problem with Gamers Paradise was that they weren't willing to give us a weekly or biweekly date. We would always just have to take dates that aren't filled by their birthday parties, so we could always be bumped at the last minute. The secondary problem was they were a bit unflinching on 5/5 pot/venue which in my experience turns most of the scene away.

    Kearny? As in that high school? Or that district bank? Or just the place in general? Anyway, I can join.
    Is that girl a boy too?

    So, much to Chibi's chagrin, that place near him repeatedly didn't work out. However, the place in Kearny I was originally looking into kinda did.

    It's called Gamer's Edge. It's a brand new store that just opened up. It's basically a HUGE ass gaming space with cheap microwavable food and snacks. People go there to play League of Legends tournaments and collectible card games all the time, but the owner wants to get into the fighting game biz. I showed him the math of pool versus venue fee and he agreed to a 7/3 split. This means first place will always make money, second place will make money at eight people, and third place will make money at 15 people signed up.

    However, the most important thing is bodies. If we can't routinely pull 10 people or over, he says he would rather use the space for something else. So guys... seriously... who is willing to come?

    Do it and we'll bring people. We'll do more than just SG too. Throw in UMvC3 and the #s will come without question.

    That place by me can kiss my ass.

    Just how far is that from the Path?

    Give me an address and/or tell what PATH stop to get off at and I'll let you know. As long as it isn't a journey I'm more than willing to come.

    There's also the VF and KoF scenes

    I dunno if Local Battles was an option for ya'll or the specifics but I'm sure you thought of it.

    And seriously think about the frequency of this meetup. If a weekly is too hard on the community do it bi weekly or monthly.

    More info! This is a big test run guys. The owner wants to be certain that it's worth it to continue running Skullgirls guys. If he doesn't show up he WON'T LET US RUN THE GAME AGAIN! He only wants to run games that can at least get 12-15 players each week consistently. I'll probably be able to bring two people, but this venue for NJ Skullgirls will ONLY STAY OPEN IF YOU COME OUT AND SUPPORT IT! It doesn't matter if you aren't the best at the game. Come out and get better!

    Seriously guys, this can only work if you help out by just coming out and having a good time.

    Here's the new SRK thread http://shoryuken.com/forum/index.php?threads/feb-16-2013-sg-umvc3-p4a-north-jersey-rejects-tournament-series-kearny-nj.175283/

    Post in it, get hype, don't let it get buried, and spread it everywhere you can! This is our chance to have an east coast presence guys! Let's do this! Don't let the hype from the donation drive fade.

    Please do. If we manage to survive a week we would love to have you. (Sorry for the jaded bitchiness but I'm getting a LOT of "wish i could come but I can't," from LOTS of people and the SG community will never survive on "wish I could come but can't." I get this sinking suspicion everyone will show up for Marvel and no one is gonna go for SG. So yeah, wish us luck and if we survive bring the NY people down... I'M HOLDING YOU TO THAT ^_^)

    Yeah, I understand how that is. I really do want to attend these, though. Which I will... as soon as I find a job ;_;

    Hey... At the NJ tournament  I'm running... Marvel has 20 entrants... Skullgirls has four... where you at community? http://www.facebook.com/events/403590659735175/?fref=ts

    Tournament was pretty fun! Glad it all came together in the end. Although, I probably won't be heading out again anytime soon given how much of a pain in the ass it was for me to get over there. At least now I have a better idea of where I need to go for the next time.

    What were the final number of Skullgirls entrants?

    Also, shoutouts to still losing to pre-patch strats. I got exposed for the fraud that I am!

    Final entrants were 13...

    Though I am depressed to say around 5 of those were my personal friends who I coerced into joining.

    The NJ community needs to step up their shit.

    Wasn't there another SG tournament in Connecticut at the same time? If that was a one-time thing, maybe things will turn out better for Rejects next time?

    If I didn't work on Saturdays and also live an hour and a half away I'd show up, but sadly money to continue scraping by > having a blast :( At least I'm assuming these are gonna be Saturday events from here on out.
