This tournament series features games in the Super Smash Bros. series as well as various fighting games and other titles. Players and spectators of all skill levels are welcome to participate.
The event is hosted by Smash Finland ry, Academic Nintendo Club ry and Turun taistelupelaajat ry. Special thanks to the staff at Turku Game Hub for letting us use the venue for the weekend!
Early bird pricing: those who register before December 4th will receive a discount on their venue fee (see pricing section for details).
Ever wanted to play more tournament matches after the bracket is over? To fix that issue, we are trying out ladder tournaments in both Smash WiiU and Melee!
Pokemon VGC tournament on Sunday! This will be an unofficial tournament, but we are looking into turning it into a sanctioned one, which would make it official. Official VGC ruleset will be used either way.
Changes to the Smash WiiU ruleset (see rules section for details).
