You’re coming to the Game Galaxy Arcade in Antioch, Tennessee to beat the tobacco juice out of each other in fighting games!

Tell all your friends! I don’t wanna hear any distance excuses. Alabama? Georgia? Ohio? Knoxville? There’s a Super 8, Country Inns & Suites, Knights Inn, and many more right down the street from the venue on Bell Road for out-of-staters.

Middle Tennessee Needs Times!
Last Saturday of every month
August 27th, September 24th, October 29th. November and December are break months.

BlazBlue and Smash Melee signups start at TWELVE NOON. If you’re bringing equipment, I need you here earlier. Tournament should start at 12:30(approximately). We will stay on schedule as much as possible. I need every participant at the scene directly at 11:55. Venue opens up at 10. Closes at 9. PLEASE be on time. I will consider starting without you if you are late unless I am informed ahead of time.

Middle Tennessee Needs Rules!

  • Hosting on Xbox360, setups are encouraged. If you’re coming, please bring a 360(we’ll put your name on it in case we have some unsavory types) with a game, and television. Please no composite cables on a flatscreen. Please confirm with me if you can bring one.
    Melee, please bring a Gamecube or Wii and a copy of Melee. I have 2 setups and I already know that will not be enough. Confirm with me if you are bringing equipment, please.

  • Top placers of the month will be seeded into next month’s brackets.

  • If you have a wireless controller it has to have a sync cable attached throughout the whole set and must be turned off after the set is finished. Other TO’s will DQ you for this.

Stage Strike in “1221” fashion to determine the first stage of the set:

  1. First player strikes one stage
  2. Second player strikes two stages
  3. First player strikes one stage

After each match:

  1. Winner announces stage ban
  2. Loser chooses counterpick stage

  4. Loser chooses their character
  • A player’s spot in the tournament may not be replaced by another person.
  • No one may make any action that is a clear attempt to distract another player and/or obstruct their ability to interact with the game.
  • Any action that can prevent the game from continuing (freezing, disappearing characters, game reset, etc.) will result in forfeiture of the match for the player that initiated the action. You are responsible for knowing your own character, and must be wary about accidentally triggering one of these effects.
