Date: March 23rd, 2013 Venue: Elite Zone at 1916 Skibo Road in Fayetteville at the Marketfaire mall.
5$ Casuals Fee 10$ Venue Fee (if you plan to enter tournaments) Amount of money per game is listed under the different poverty level tiers by the games list:
The idea behind this tournament is pure fun and nostalgia for the classics and old games that had so much love put into them. Don't come out here expecting to get paid a whole bunch of cash or having large turnouts per game (Unless you are competing in UMVC3). Poverty games rarely get large turnouts, they are passion games. So come out, casual players, pro players, oldheads or whatever and just have fun with everyone.
I repeat, you aren't going to make any money here, if you win a few of these maybe you'll make like 50-100 bucks, don't come here expecting to play for the big bucks. It's a poverty game because you'll only get like 5-8 entrants.
Some of these games have prize bonuses, physical items given out to the winner. In order for the prize bonus to happen they must get at least 6 entrants. Depending on overall support of the event or certain games more bonuses will be added.

These games cannot be guaranteed by KDP staff as they are dependent upon a 3rd party running them (although they are pretty reliable and they will most likely be there).
A general time table will be created a week before the event is up. If you're planning on coming please post up a list of the games you are interested in playing to show your support for that particular game and it will help me make the time table as well.
