One year to the day, Ground Kontrol returns to The Hoxton, Portland with an evening of Super Smash Bros. in The Apartment. Join us on Tuesday, October 29th for a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournament and costume contest, starting with casual warm-up matches at 5pm and registration for the tournament at 6pm, which will be capped at 32 registered players and scheduled to begin at 7pm sharp.
Registration is first come, first served and begins in The Apartment at 6pm, so make sure to check in early for a guaranteed spot in the tournament! RSVPing on Eventbrite does NOT register you for the tournament (allows priority on-site tournament registration at 6pm), and you must be 21 or older to register. Spectators who are 21 or older are welcome to join the party, play casual matches on our extra set-ups, and participate in a costume contest that we’ll be judging around 10pm!
The magic starts at 5pm in the and goes ’til 11pm. Drinks for hire, nibbles by us!
