edited March 2013 in PAX East
Oh hai! The next PAX is just over a month away. (35 days if you're counting. Commence freak outs.....now.) Here is your handy dandy HH tourney guide. Pretty much what it says on the tin. Updates may be added through 3/14.
Handheld Tournament FAQ:

All sign ups begin Friday morning when doors open.
This year we're putting aside the pick-a-first-round method. Just your standard start times means more games for you!
Please bring your own device for the tournament! Unfortunately we don't have any to loan out.
Your own copy of the game is needed unless otherwise stated. Very few copies for some games are available on first come, first serve basis.
Every tournament will have at least 64 slots open. In the event of an odd number of players, we'll make it work!
When in doubt, as an Enforcer at the HH desk! We don't bite.

Mario Kart 7 : Friday 3/22/13 @ 2:30pm : Nintendo 3DS

We here at PAX run a clean race. We also run an easy race! If you're new to it, this just means grand prix races with random courses and no character or car restrictions. See? Easy peasy. All you have to do is bring your A game and those thumb callouses you've been working on.

Star Fox 64 3D : Friday 3/22/13 @ 6:30pm : Nintendo 3DS

Nostalgia plus new game play? Awwww yeah, good times. Every round you'll be flying 'til you can't in dogfights. Best 2 of 3 moves on to the following round. Have fun going against old friends and new! (Unless they play as Slippy. You know why.)

Spaceteam : Saturday 3/23/13 @ 5:30pm : iPad/iPad Mini/iPhone

Do you enjoy hurtling through the cold embrace of the universe, in a ship doing its best to fall apart, while trying not to create a HR nitemare because Jim in communications can't get his act together? Have we got the tournament for you. Oh, and I hope you like a couple modes you haven't played before. You'll get the full details day of. Just be prepared for fun!

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed : Saturday 3/23/13 @ 1:30pm : PlayStation Vita

*Seeeegaaaaaaaaaa* You wouldn't think the world's favorite blue hedgehog needed a car for racing, but I guess he wanted to give his buddies a fair chance. We'll be running basic grand prix races for each round without any vehicle, course, or character restrictions. Don't have to be the first off the line, just the first to cross it!

Mario Kart DS @ 11:30am/Tetris DS @ 4:30pm : Sunday 3/24/13 : Nintendo DS/DSi(XL)/3DS(XL)

We're taking a day to play two of our forever favorites. We're focusing on fun, but there are still medals to win. Rules will be the same as ever. If you're not sure, just ask at the desk!

Meet-up Schedule:

Friday:
4pm - PokeLeague
5pm - Classic HH

Saturday:
3pm - Dragon Quest 9
4pm - PokeLeague

Sunday:
1pm - PSVita
2pm - PokeLeague

If I'm missing any, please let me know in the thread!

    Yessssss.

    Mario Kart 7 and Spaceteam are musts.

    I just got thinking about Spaceteam. What about having the players ("crew") sit down in a little custom made setting ("space ship console"). They could all be facing different ways so they have to yell even louder!

    I'm going to try my hand at Tetris DS this time around. I'll probably get stomped but it'll still be fun!

    The nice thing about MK, is that it's fun even when you suck. I love games like that.

    Minions are another show. But HH does have a feisty sense of humor.

    Minons? I mean Minos!


    On that note, I don't know if this is the correct thread to ask but I don't happen to see the Mario Kart DS/ Tetris DS tournament on the official schedule. They're still a thing, yes?

    huh! Learn something new every day :)

    They are most definitely still a thing! And this also means I have a head to smack up a bit as last I checked they WERE on the official schedule.

    For handheld, I believe you have to bring them.

    I'll be in HH with my share box Friday and Saturday at 3 with a tentative plan of Sunday at noon too. Would be swell if you can add that to the meet ups and help me get the word out.

    That isn't really within the remit of the handheld thread, esp since you have your own thread. I know handheld makes an awesome place to do many meetups, but it isn't actually a *handheld* meetup.

    Are the handheld tourneys not in the Guidebook App?

    For the tournaments, yes. For the sunday tournaments we usually have a few copies laying around, but it is first come first serve. You can always check with the desk first. If you just want to futz around with some games you don't have or have never seen before, we can loan those out to you! Unfortunately we don't have console loans as of yet.

    Hrmmm... checking up on this. BRB.
    Okay! I just checked on an android phone and found them by going to tracks>tournaments and doing a bit of scrolling. I don't think you can search by department though.

    I will do a tweet shout out if you want for this, but it won't go on the main list for the reasons above (same reason I don't have the MLP meet up on the list).
