Spokane, WA - Game On relocating, fight nights temporarily cancelled


So just for anyone on this thread that might not know or is looking for an update. As you may or may not know Game On was burgularized last week and we lost everything needed to make our business run. Fortunately the D’bags were caught and we are getting some of our equiptment back. We will still have to replace alot of stuff but we are in the process of doing so right now. I have posted updates on our FaceBook page and we are looking for feedback on the thoughts of re-opening in a Valley Mall location. I know there are a couple downsides to a mall location but I think the benefits will far outwiegh the few downsides. Please leave feedback either on here or our Facebook page to let us know your thoughts. We want to thank everyone again for your support through these bad times and hopefully we will come back better and stronger.


Thanks for the update!

I imagine the lease will be a bit more than where you guys were at before which would mean higher prices for us (not that you were charging a lot before…seriously, I doubt you were making any money off us), but you should get a lot more exposure at the mall than hidden behind Pawn One…

Also, I can swing by the food court and score some great food, haha.

Oh, just saw your Facebook post. That’s nice you negotiated the lease down.


It looks like Game On will probably not be re-opening, since apparently insurance is not covering the stolen items. Is that it for the Spokane scene? I feel like we’ve been knocked out, and I’m watching those numbers count down next to my character’s bloody portrait…


What is the point of insurance if it doesn’t help with this? Sad. There is always meetings at people’s houses I guess. Or perhaps at somewhere like SFCC.


Well, there is Spoklash coming up which should be a decent-sized tournament. But it also looks like there will be some competition at the upcoming Spokane Comicon (May 19th). They’re running Brawl and AE, but if they get enough feedback about it, it looks like they could do Marvel as well. Any Marvel players willing to come out for that?


It’s really more of a matter of school for me. If I happen to not be swamped I may show up. If you’re looking to practice some marvel I can do some sessions with like maybe a couple of people (small apartment). I’m on the south hill.


I know Jammo3k and I believe House of Paincakes have expressed interest in getting together at somebody’s house but it hasn’t happened yet. I’m definitely down for it.


How’s Spoklash been in the past? Bigger turnout than the GameOn events?


It was a fairly good turn out last year.


Yeah, Ben was offering to host some people but I don’t think he ever actually did host. My wife and I just had a baby a few weeks ago so my social life is kind of in a weird spot right now. Eventually I could probably host again as well.


Looks like Spokane Comicon will be having Marvel, AE and Brawl tournaments. It’s 10 am Saturday at SCC. Games will be played on the 360 (except Brawl, obviously).


Just wanted to spread our tournament over to you guys up there in Spokane :slight_smile: Doesn’t hurt to try.

Oh hey, that is actually a time that works for me. If there is a carpool going I will likely be interested in attending.


Do love the support if you guys can make it over here.


Thanks for the heads up! I won’t be able to make it but hopefully some of these guys can.


That would be really great.


So is the Spokompton scene mainly SF and UMVC or do you guys play some others. I like just about all the different fighters so just kinda seein whats played where. i live in Quincy/Wenatchee so not much of a scene here mainly just my friends for anything semi serious so just been lookin around seeing whats going on within driving distance (basically all of Washington lol). and didn’t really want to read all 23 pages to try and find that out. oh and don’t let the evo 2012 thing fool ya I’m not that good just going for the fun of it lol.


Last weekend was Spoklash. There were about five people for Marvel and AE, with two of them being from outside the area. Previous years (I’m told) have had much better turnouts. When Game On was still a thing, the Moscow/Pullman crew would wander over for tournaments and sometimes outnumber the Spokane attendees. Overall, I would say the Spokane scene is not very active, unless they’re having secret weekly meetups I don’t know about.

Looking at Google maps, you’re about 30 minutes closer to the Seattle area than you are to Spokane. That’s where I would look for games if I were you.

If you’re specifically looking for something in Eastern Washington though, there are tournaments next week in both Richland and Walla Walla. The last Walla Walla tournament I went to had pretty good turnout; comparable to peak Game On activity. Link.


Cool thnx for the info the seattle/spokane drive feels the same to me so just wanted to see what was out there. hopefully your area gets revived soon I know how it is having a near non-existent local FGC. defiantly check out the Richland scene I got a bro that lives there so make it easy if I don’t want to drive back after
