The 2018 Gigazone Gaming Championship will be held on Saturday, October 20th!

Gamers of the Northwoods!

It’s been a frightfully long winter, but the Gigazone gaming team has been working hard through the dark, cold months to try and bring you yet another great event this year! We’re looking forward to trying some new things this year as well as bringing back some of your old favorites as we gear up for game day on Saturday, October 20th, at the Sanford Center in Bemidji!!!

Magic the Gathering Open Draft TournamentThis year we’ll be changing things up a bit on the main stage and we’ve decided on the PC release of Overwatch as our primary championship game. The side tournament last year generated so much enthusiasm and excitement that we thought it would be great to bring that energy to the main stage and ballroom this year. In addition to the main event, we’re of course bringing back the Magic: The Gathering draft tournaments and looking into another set of Smash Bros. and Mario Kart tournaments, though which versions we intend to use are still being hotly debated in the office.

Madden 18 TournamentThe Madden tournament was a hit last year, so we’re planning on hosting one again as well as another attempt to line the walls with free to play arcade cabinets, pinball machines, and more! With Halloween right around the corner from the date of the event, we thought it would be a great opportunity to hold another Cosplay competition as well. Feel free to come dressed as your favorite video game or pop culture icon and you’ll have a chance to win any number of fabulous prizes. As usual, there’ll be a bevy of other door prizes and giveaways taking place throughout the day and it’s entirely open to the public and free of charge! So, mark your calendars and start getting ready for the 2018 Gigazone Gaming Championship!
