“Fierce Punch 2: Fighting Game Tournaments for Literacy” is an evolution of last year’s Street Fighter Art Show. In an effort to encourage reading among children, we’re raising money for Britton Elementary and their literacy programs.
There will be a winner-take-all double-elimination Street Fighter V tournament, which will cost $10 to enter. $5 going will be going to Britton Elementary. $5 will be going to the prize pool. Outside of that, we’ll have casual play for various iterations of:
Dead or Alive
King of Fighters/Fatal Fury
This might change as we get closer and receive more input.
If you buy a comic book from New World’s kid’s section for a child, entry into the tournament will be $5. If you just want to play, but don’t want to enter a tournament, you can donate $5 and participate in casuals.
In the spirit of the event, there will be live poetry readings and maybe comedy/music performances that compliment the night. Cosplayers are welcome as well.
This is an all ages event. If you wish to drink, let us know and we’ll see about making this BYOB. See you in January.
