Nintendo Tournament

This weekend, Arizona gives you Nintendo, more of the ubiquitous Scott Pilgrim, and some costumed fun. Read on!

And there are plenty of geeky things to do here in the Phoenix area, even throughout the week.

Official Nintendo Wii Tournament

  • This one’s actually Fri, Sat, and Sun – but I’m only going on Sat.
  • Register your team, pick your mascot, come up with a sweet team name, and you’re good.
  • As far as I can tell, it’s free to watch, and free to play. Bring the kids.
  • It’ll be at the Arrowhead Towne Center in Glendale, August 13th through the 15th.
  • More info here.
