CouchWarriors Fighting Festival!
Posted 18 March 2012 - 04:07 PM
CouchWarriors, the long standing events group and heart of the Melbourne Fighting Game Community - announces its return for 2012 with a something different for its series of special monthly events.
The first of the new CouchWarriors Fighting Festivals will be on March 31st from 12pm to 12am. Tournaments will wrap up by 9pm, with an after-party till late.
Going beyond the scope of a regular tournament, CouchWarriors are expanding these into more of a fighting game festival, a gamer’s party. The festival will have bigger emphasis on the social experience, in a large bar and lounge venue with food and drink available on site. Each month CouchWarriors will bring an engaging event to players new and old, with not just social games and tournaments, but special events, training, giveaways, fun sideshow activities and more. In short, we're inviting gamers to get off the couch and join in a social event with the incredible energy and atmosphere the fighting game community provides, with a chance to play long sets and learn in a variety of games, or join the fun as spectators and be entertained. All are welcome.
