  • This event has passed.

By popular demand, Black Ice presents our first Super Smash Bros. Melee event, featuring a Project+ side bracket!


Registration link: Preregister on StartGG!


Things to know before you go: Please BYOC (bring your own controller) – any controller compatible with Nintendo GameCube 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 Melee setup INCLUDING A CRT TELEVISION will receive a $5 discount on their venue fee! A “full setup” consists of:

  • A CRT television sufficiently large and in shape for tournament play (TO discretion)
  • A Nintendo GameCube or Nintendo Wii with Super Smash Bros. Melee
  • Display and power cables

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 bracket.
