GAMERS!  You've picked the date, you love your games, now come out and game!

OKgamers is launching it's series of Bi-Monthly Gamer Gatherings - first in the Tulsa area, next month after - OKC, then back again, etc.  ...leading up to our big events at the beginning of 2011!!

What to do at a GG?  Play games, maybe learn a thing while finding new gamers, new games, etc.  It's just like it sounds - an opportunity for gamers to gather.  Sure - we learn what's popular, and gamers can show off - what matters the most though?  BUILDING community - we have gamers in OK, show up and prove what we already know!  :)


WHY SHOW UP?  WHAT IS A GAMING GATHERING?  3 THINGS: What you are playing, getting better at, or even already compete in!

SHOW WHAT WE PLAY - A chance to prove what gaming communities we have locally to support!  Your game get no event support - CHANGE THAT!  Bring out your favorite game!  What are you playing?  What area you into?  What are you looking for competition?!? 
(support?  As in, once we see games have a following through attending these?  We can add them at future events OKgamers works with like Conventions, Tournaments, gatherings, etc!!)

WHAT WE CAN LEARN - It's also a chance to grow at the games we love - talk to local gamers, share tips, and brush up on your game!  Want better online victories?  Want to travel to that next tournament?  Brush up here!  Maybe even find carpools to events!!

COMMUNITY BUILDING - Play a game but don't know if ANYONE ELSE DOES?  Part of an online gaming community, but don't know anyone locally?  Does your community need events to gather at?! 

SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT THIS EVENT; make this your communities next event, bring out your game, and use it as a platform to find more gamers!


(And bonus and obvious 4th - to spread the word about OKgamers.com existing as a Oklahoma's gamer source of info for tournaments and local competition!)

DISCLAIMERS?
Tulsa = Area, as Funhouse is like 3 feet into Jenks, technically :)
Arcade = it's at an Arcade, please don't bring cabinets :)
PC LAN = we have the space, and a few PC'ers, we'll see!

--

DATE:  Sunday - 10/10/10
TIMES: 1pm to 9pm(ish)
LOCATION: Funhouse at the Riverwalk
500 Riverwalk Terrace, Suite 100
Tulsa, Ok 74037


http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&q=500+Riverwalk+Terrace,+Suite+100+74037&ie=UTF8&om=1&hq=&hnear=Riverwalk+Terrace,+Jenks,+Tulsa,+Oklahoma+74037&t=h&z=15&iwloc=A


GAMES?  See below for what is being brought for sure.  Bringing something else - post so we all know!

COST: 10$ - Like most events, there is a location fee - we are also pooling a fee to get PIZZA AND DRINKS!

FREE FOOD: YES!  We'll do 2 orders around 2:30 pm, and 6pm!

FREE TOKENS:  Yup, the 10$ fee gets you 10$'s in tokens - spend it on DDR, Initial D, Time Crisis, Soul Calibur 3AE, and other fun video games, as well as ticket games they have at that venue.

TOURNAMENT COSTS?  Ha ha, no.  This is purely freeplay fun times - like an event gaming room - without the event.  Bring enough setups, and we can do some fun free events, but we'll focus on having freeplay options always open!

--

So - we just bring our favorite stuff out and play?  Yup.  Just like a potluck Tournament style event, only this time - no console or game RESTRICTIONS!!  You want to bring out DBZ - feel free.  You want to play the 360 version of Street Fighter - bring it. 

It seems simple - and it is.  The more gamers get out, and play against each other, the more fun they have.  The more friends they make.  And if they are competitive, the better they get. 

...the more gamers we prove we have out there, the bigger events we can have in the future, and more sponsors will care too :)

CASUAL GAMERS = finding out local comp, and what is "strong" in this area, gaming wise!
HARDCORE GAMERS = recruit more tournament competition, and find locals interested in getting better!
ONLINE COMMUNITIES = Use this as YOUR event!  Promote it online, to friends, etc - then bring out some setups and play! 
(Local gamers are looking for games to play, promote your game and find more comp!)

--

CURRENT LIST OF GAMES EXPECTED TO SHOW UP (edited as people post!):

Console:
SUPER SMASH BROS  - 64 - YES!, Melee maybe?  Brawl - YES!
Halo Reach x 2
Tekken 6?
Blaz Blue CS
Soul Calibur 4 - PS3
SC 4/ Street Fighter 4 - Xbox

PC LAN:
SC2?
(Waiting on LAN'ers lol)


IDEA'S FOR WHAT TO BRING / WISHLIST:
More Fighters - like  DOA, or what ever you play.
SPORTS GAMES?!  Madden fans, it'd be nice to see a setup!
RACING FANS - DO YOU EVEN EXIST?!  Prove it here.
FPS - you take up a lot of room; we'll take the first few 2v2 or 4v4 setups that post RSVP'ing the space - but don't expect to take up half the place unless that's all people show up to play :)


WHAT - NO CCG / TABLETOP / LARP?!@
We could probably get a LARP going, but haven't seen interest outside of conventions.
CCG and Tabletop - have game shops all across the state, your communities are set!  OKgamers volunteer staff also do not throw competing events with businesses - and well, CCG/Tabletop is pretty hooked up ya know :)

...that said?  IF THERE IS INTEREST - and no conflicts (games not rep'ed locally at stores), we'll check space!

--

WRAP UP - WHAT DO YOU DO NOW?
Spread the word to friends!  Know someone that that complains there is nothing to do, shut them up with this! 
Bring your 10$, and BYOC = BRING YOUR OWN CONTROLLER, as they'll be limited as always.
Got a favorite game - bring it out!  We'll have some tube TV's free; but a setup is a TV, Console and game!  We'll have power strips, tables and chairs!


MORE GAMES - coming soon.
PRINTABLE FLYER - CLICK HERE - please print a few and put them up somewhere!
FACEBOOK EVENT - OFFICIAL EVENT CLICK HERE!
AWESOMENESS = 10/10/10!

I know for a fact - yes. 
We also know - OKgamers has a 9 to 1 lurker ratio.

So - for your one post, 9 other people might be interested, and not say anything lol.

So, why don't we take this to the next step - and you say you are coming, and you are bringing SC2 - and we'll add it to the list :)

doesnt sc2 require internet connection? Meaning you can't play offline networking.

Any SC2 gamers out there???

Im an SC2 gamer and would like to set up/Join a local WoW guild as well.

Edit: SC2 does require an internet connection. 

I'm open to ANY PC game so if we get some suggestions ill bring my laptop or rig if necessary. 

I can bring my console as well.  Oh... im also in the 360 Kinect beta so that's a possibility as long as there is no photography and no media coverage there.

Edit #2 - Oh and Hi, im new here lol.
