Before Madden called the shots and NFL Blitz drew lines on the field, there was Tecmo Super Bowl, the classic 8-bit answer to console gridiron action. It was a simpler time for the NFL, and for sports games in general. However, the appeal of Tecmo Super Bowl endures, and the charm of the classic teams represented here are downright vintage at this point.
As football season continues, Ground Kontrol would like to get in on the game, and we’re doing it the way we always do: old school. Starting Sunday, December 7th, we’re hosting an ongoing Tecmo Super Bowl tournament, and this is your chance at 8-bit football glory!
Signups begin at 5pm, and the first kickoff is at 6, every other week. We’ll continue the tournament until our championship round, Sunday, February 1 – the day of the NFL’s Big Game. The tournament will take place using an original NES, single elimination bracket, best of three games.
Enjoy food and drink specials, a great football atmosphere, and fierce competition in one of the all-time classic football games! You’ve been playing Tecmo Super Bowl for years, and now it’s time to take those skills to the big leagues – to Ground Kontrol. See you at gametime – Sunday, December 7th!
