If you haven’t purchased a ticket yet, stop delaying! This summer’s hottest retro gaming event is coming to Hauppauge, NY on August 13th and SPLI is going to be there hosting an Amiibo Only Tournament!
Visit the official website of the Long Island Retro Gaming Expo to buy tickets, learn more about the event and see a list of vendors that will be participating. This event is amazing for retro gamers and collectors alike, with a show floor filled with retro games to purchase, as well as various retro gaming tournaments to show that you still have the skills after all these years!
Of course, SPLI is a little more about current gen gaming, so be sure to bring your Nintendo 3DS and an Amiibo to the event too! We’re going back to basics with our Amiibo Only Tournament, since we have a really cool GRAND PRIZE to give to the winner! The 1st place winner will receive a trophy and a Legend of Zelda lithograph!

- One (1) Amiibo per Entrant

Entrants must stay in the tournament area while their Amiibo fights in the tournament. If an entrant is not present for their matchup, they will be disqualified. SPLI is not responsible for lost or mixed up Amiibo figures.
