VIDEO GAME TOURNAMENTS

Between Wednesday and Friday, we will be running Nintendo video game tournaments/leagues at Akedo.  This year we have three events – Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Knockout tournament, and 2 Smash Bros Ultimate Leagues –  With items, and without items. Each event will play twice – U16s at 3pm, and Over 16s at 7pm. Parents coming along with the children can also enter the U16s event (but must book their own ticket to do so).

There will be prizes for the winners, including trophies, Amiibos, Nintendo vouchers and Akedo vouchers.

There are only 16 places, so please book in advance. Tickets are £5 but this includes free rein to stay and play all of Akedo’s vast range of new and retro games and consoles for the rest of the day.

What’s happening?

Weds 20th Feb – Super Smash Bros Ultimate (ALL ITEMS) league on Nintendo Switch

Smash Bros. how it should be played – all characters, all items, all stages and hazards, pure, chaotic fun. 3-minute matches.

Join us for our first Smash Bros. League event – 16 players, 6 x 4 player matches in a league table, resulting in a top 4 5-minute knockout match to declare the Ultimate winner. Pun intended.

Thurs 21st Feb – Mario Kart 8 Deluxe knockout tournament on Nintendo Switch
