NNW: The Perfect Couple 29/02/20




We were forecast a storm for the weekend, but it was actually ok for most of the day!

We had a Bowser and and a special enamel smash badge in the raffle this time.



We saw some Grid on the big screen first, and then when people started arriving, some wanted to try out the "loanable" amiibo to see which one they could trust for the tournament.
Most people who signed up for our "Perfect Couple" tournament (where you and your amiibo battled it out against someone else and their amiibo) brought their own amiibo. We had a couple of Isabelles, and a few Samuses. but there was a good range of amiibo in general.




First though, we had round 1 of the new league to do. This year the league is based around Mario & Sonic at the Tokyo Olympics, Out of two rounds, one was a game themed to the Olympic game we had chosen. This time it was "Must Dash Amigos"


This is a tremendously fun, highly charged Mexican sprint, full of Guacamole, Bombs and slippery goo....!
Groups of 3 or 4 competed against each other to get their first set of scores for this year's league.




The Smash tournament was next up.
Not everyone realised that you could share stock with your amiibo, but once everyone got going, it proved quite useful!






There were some tense matches, and unexpected people won because of strong amiibo!

Especially that Bowser...
It was only after the tournament had finished, that a team of 7 managed to take down "Web"


Lucky for Glyn, he had chosen "Web" Bowser as his loaned amiibo for the tournament. He beat John in a fairly quick battle and still had 3 stock left over! oof!



Round 2 of the league was the actual Olympic Game: The 100m dash. It was very brief, but people put a lot of physical effort into it!
















There was a slight gap, so some played a bit of Just Dance on the big screen.




The other screen had Smash on for most of the day.





The tie breaker featured just Dale and Kian. They battled it out on 10 rounds of Runbow, but Dale took the final victory and the £10 eShop credit that came with it!






We finished with the raffle and prizes, but almost forgot about the group photo! We just about managed it before most escaped though! (and some carried on playing Just Dance for a bit too.)
- sorry to those who actually escaped before we realised :P
