Daily Gaming Challenges
Art & Audio
Art & Audio Challenge – Every day at 12pm
Can you name that sound?
Can you identify that video game screen shot, arcade sideart, or pinball backglass?
The Art & Audio Challenge will pit players against one another in a series of ten-question rounds. Each question will consist of a moderator displaying a piece of video game or pinball artwork, an audio clip, or both. For each question, the first competitor to press the buzzer will have five seconds, and one guess, to identify the referenced game. Players who correctly identify the game will receive a point. Players who guess incorrectly will lose a point.
Miniature Duck Hunt – Thursday 12pm – 6pm
Take a deep breath… focus… follow the feathers…
Think you’re a good shot? We want you to prove it! ReplayFX has ramped up the difficulty of this NES classic launched in 1984 by scaling down the screen. We will be challenging attendees on our 1980’s-fresh Panasonic television that comes complete with a UHF adapter, antenna, AM radio, and a whopping 4-inch screen! Just to make things even more interesting, we picked up an NES light gun with a longer-than-normal cord to push challengers even farther away. Don’t step over the line!
First place will receive $100 in swag from ReplayFX’s merchandise booth.
Attack from the Back – Friday 12pm – 6pm
Those of you who visited PAPA Headquarters years ago may remember this throwback classic, back by popular demand! Attack from the Back features an Attack from Mars pinball machine wired with the cabinet buttons placed on top of the backbox. The pinball machine sits on the floor without legs, and players must stand behind the machine while playing from a reverse angle.
Players are free to compete as many times as they like. The highest overall score will receive $100 in swag from ReplayFX’s merchandise booth.
After the competition is completed, the machine will remain for attendees to play and challenge one another.
Tattoo Assassins Fighting Tournament – Friday 9pm
Have you ever wanted to compete on the worst fighting game of all time? Tattoo Assassins was considered ground-breaking in its use of high-powered moves, such as farting your opponent to death or shooting laser beams out of your nether regions. This arcade machine was never mass produced, but we are (un?)lucky enough to have two working prototypes that will be on display for the general public.
Players will square off in a head-to-head bracket and compete for a grand prize of a low quality, poorly reviewed, temporary tattoo kit that we bought as cheaply as possible off of Amazon! Second place will receive a Sharpie marker, which may or may not be dried out.
Blindfolded Team Ms. Pac-Man – Saturday 12pm – 6pm
Two players will team up to play the turbo version of the arcade classic Ms. Pac-Man. One team member will be tasked with controlling the game while blindfolded. The second team member will instruct the first with verbal cues on where to move. At no point will the blindfolded player be permitted to look at the video game’s screen. At no point will the second, non blind-folded player, be permitted to touch the controls.
The first place team will receive $100 per team member in swag from ReplayFX’s merchandise booth.
