Killer Queen Monthly Mixer Tournament – Sunday 10/2, 7pm

Killer Queen Monthly Mixer TournamentOur monthly Killer Queen Arcade League Night has evolved! We’re hosting casual “mixer” tournaments that are a great opportunity for new players to learn the game and seasoned veterans to mix it up with new teams.

Mixed up teams of five will compete in matches in a Round Robin style. Winner of a coin flip will choose their pick of map or cabinet, and the loser will then make their alternate choice. Maps will alternate every game.

Registration is from 7pm to 8pm SHARP. No names will be taken after 8pm. Once the list is full, team captains will privately pick and meet with their teams. We will allow ~15 minutes for everyone to get situated and organized before the first game will start.

This tournament is designed for people to make new friends in the KQ community! Competition is certainly encouraged, but this is a bit more of a social event. All skill levels are welcome and encouraged! Best of all, playing is completely free.

Special thanks to our sponsor, Not Your Father’s Root Beer from Small Town Brewery!
