Welcome to our monthly Super Smash Bros Ultimate event!


Pre-registration links:  You Can Now Buy Your Ticket Online!


Things to know before you go:


Please BYOC (bring your own controller) – any controller compatible with Nintendo Switch works, unless it has “turbo” or macro functionality, which is not tournament legal.


Bring setups if you can! The first 5 people to bring a full Smash Ultimate setup (monitors not needed) will receive a $5 discount on their venue fee! A “full setup” consists of:


–              A Nintendo Switch with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and all DLC unlocked

–              A Nintendo Switch Dock with HDMI and power cables

–              A GameCube Controller Adapter from one of the following brands: Nintendo, Mayflash, Panda, or Hit Box (if you have a different brand, ask a TO)



Even if you can’t bring a full setup, anything you CAN bring is always appreciated! Having more setups helps us to run the tournament faster and provide more space for casual play before and after the bracket.
