so for a wedding present the a few weeks ago, i got a 2nd TE fightstick, and in a few weeks my wife is getting me for xmas the evo '09 monitor. I’m bummed in woodbridge,VA theres no established fighting game community, so I figured, I got all the things i need, why not just start it yourself?
I’m thinking starting a bi-weekly casuals at a good location in woodbridge, even thinking about approaching the local gamestop to see if they’d be open to letting me bring my stuff in to host a couple hour session every other week. Also considering finding a sports bar to see if they’d let me have a corner to set up my stuff, and people hang out and play for a while. Then, flier the hell out any place gamers might see it, post it on srk, and see who shows up.
any thoughts, feedback, or advice? I’d love to hear from folks who’ve started their own thing before.
