Racing Tournament!

We are getting ready to run our first gaming tournament in the archive!

This will be a silent tournament, meaning that instead of several hours of head-to-head competition, the competitors will have to prove their mettle on five different racing games by scoring the best times. The races can be done during any of the designated times over the course of a week.

The games are F-Zero (SNES); Star Wars Episode I Racer (N64); Mario Kart Double Dash (GameCube); Pure (PS3); and Forza 2 (Xbox 360).

Sign-up during the week of September 28.

The tournament is the week of October 5.

Open only to U-M students, faculty & staff. Since this is our first tournament, we are limited participants to the first 50 people who sign-up.

Prizes are gift certificates to local gaming store Get Your Game On.

All the details are online at
