Weekly SmashFests are a hit!

by chris@gameclucks.com

Mondays at GameClucks have exploded recently with the addition of our weekly SmashFest!

Held every Monday from 2pm – 10pm, twenty to forty smashers gather for some friendlies and, sometimes,a  mini event for bragging rights only. With a $3 venue fee, we try and keep this event inexpensive and fun for anyone, any age and for any Smash Bros version, though the event is primarily Melee and PM, we have an occasional Brawl or N64 sighting as well!

Initially organized and proposed as a Friday one off event to host the Eastern Washington crew, some of the local Smashers asked for a weekly. Working with Cody Farr, we changed the day to Monday and launched this fest in early June.

Future SmashFests may include mini tournaments for free entries or prizes and possibly raffles for swag.

The Washington Smash Scene is strong and growing and Mondays are just a small part of that!

Come on down on Mondays, play some Smash, meet some new people and have a blast!

SmashFest Details:
$3 Venue fee for 2pm – 10pm
We have 8 TVs set up, just need Cubes/Wii’s on them.
All Smash is welcome.

Natus Vincere visits GameClucks

by chris@gameclucks.com

For the third year in a row, Natus Vincere has come to GameClucks to get in some extra practice during The International DotA2 event.

This years event, The International 4, boasts a $10.4 million prize pool, the largest in professional e-sports to date.

They are planning to be at GameClucks Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, but their exact schedule is not set yet.
We are charging a spectator fee of $5, as we are giving NaVi the time on the computers for free, as a show of gratitude for their continued support of GameClucks!

Here are a couple of pictures of them in action at GC!
