Pokémon Lab(o) - VR? 11/05/19

We had a big day planned for everyone, with a main event, cinema trip and even pizza to round it all off!

We had to shorten the main event by an hour, so we chose not to do a main tournament, but instead focus on the league session and the Labo opportunities.
we had two challenges throughout the day.

The first one was the original Toy Con Labo - people had to try and catch the biggest "fish" (yes this DID include sharks :P )

The second challenge was to get the highest score on the first level of the Blaster VR challenges. #

There was also a screen of Smash Ultimate for people to play on for most of the day.

We demoed Puyo Champions for a bit, but it wasn't long until people reverted to either Tetris 99 or Puyo Puyo Tetris!

The league session's first round was ARMS.
People had to use the joy cons the other way round.

In the middle of the day we allowed North Wales team 1 to play their NPUK Spoil the Broth tournament match against Manchester 1. Unfortunately it wasn't to be though, as Manchester's JasonVMX and his wife seemed to be in a league of their own!!
Was fun to watch though regardless!

The second round of the league featured Ultimate Chicken Horse.
As a group we're used to playing Party mode on the premade levels. It was done differently because Dylan had made a custom level for everyone to complete on challenge mode.
You can find it using this code:  W6EP-FKVN.

People picked their characters, dressed them up and got going!

Dylan tried to show everyone how to do the level but couldn't finish it! (He did at home, honestly!)
A lot tried to speedrun it and got caught out. No one actually finished it, but people got scored according to where they died...

Once the round was over, people kept playing it, but only Jack M and James managed to complete it in the end!

The tie breaker saw Spid and James fighting it out in party mode.
Some items had increased probability, jet packs were turned off. The fire rate was sped up, but the speed of it was slow.... which resulted in a slightly impossible crossbow at one point.
We were hoping for more in the tie breaker, but on the second round, the other two with 5 ended up in the same group, and neither of them got the second 5 points...!!
The stage was the Crumbling Bridge.
The issue was that because there were only two players, once one had gained an advantage it was pretty plain sailing from there! (well done to Spid!)

It wasn't all bad for James though - Due to him getting the maximum points for the session, he's now joint top with John on the leaderboard!

John won the Blaster VR challenge, and Drn won the Fishing challenge with his 633m shark..!

We did the raffle and made everyone promise that if they won a plush and were going to the cinema, the plush had to watch the film with them too ;)

We had a good even spread of the prizes, and a big Jigglypuff, along with a Ditto and a few Pikachus made it to the cinema with us!
Thanks to Teki for donating some of the prizes for this one :)

Once we'd packed up at 4, we started heading over to Llandundo Junction for the Detective Pikachu at 5pm. A few of us only just made it in time, so we got our snacks and headed in.

The film had mixed opinions. Some thought it was amazing, and others thought the plot itself wasn't deep enough. What we didn't realise was that we brought an accidental spoiler with us ;)
Jigglypuff seemed to have some fun of its own too...!!!

We managed a group photo after we came out (apologies to Cat who we didn't realise had disappeared until she reappeared!!) and then headed over to pizza hut!

21 of us crammed into one corner of the restaurant, and finished off the day by eating loads of pizza!
We actually ran out of time for pudding, but some of us had to leave by a certain time.

It was an immensely fun day, and maybe we'll do it again one day :D
