What You Missed: SPLI Amiibo Only Tournament (May)

Mother’s Day meant a lot of Amiibo fun for those who came out to the SPLI Amiibo Only Tournament (May) event at A Store of Fire and Dice in Lynbrook, NY on 5/10. We held an Amiibo Doubles tournament and it was a lot of fun!

Much to her delight, SPLI Co-Founder Debbie ended up winning the Tournament with her King Koopa and Zeruda pairing. (They were undefeated for the day!) But since SPLI admins can’t win a tournament, the prize was awarded to the runner-up David with his Bowser and Link Amiibo. They performed well and should be commended!

We’ll post the highlight videos from the stream soon I promise! Plus stay tuned for a major announcement about the future of the SPLI Amiibo Only Tournament!

What You Missed: SPLI Amiibo Only Tournament (April)

Last Sunday was the monthly SPLI Amiibo Only Tournament (April) and we decided to switch things up a bit by changing to Doubles format. Everyone really liked the new ruleset so we’ll stick with it for now! If you weren’t able to attend the event, you can always check out the replay on the SPLI Twitch Channel! We always try to stream our events live, so check our Twitch if you can’t make it to an Amiibo Only Tournament, and be sure to follow us so you don’t miss an update! ūüôā

Amiibo Only Tournament (April) Update

Who’s excited for the next SPLI Amiibo Only Tournament? We’ll be meeting up at Gamehut in Babylon, NY on Sunday 5/26 from 5pm – 8pm to test the skills of our beloved Amiibo figures!

We wanted to change it up a little bit for this tournament, so we’ve decided to try a Doubles format for this Tournament. This will change the rules slightly so here’s the update:

  • Doubles Format
    • 2 vs. 2 – Amiibo’s Only! You cannot pair up humans with Amiibos. We are strictly Amiibo’s Only in this Tournament.
  • Doubles Pairings Options
    • One person with 2 Amiibo figures
    • Two people with 1 Amiibo figure each
    • One person with 1 Amiibo and 1 Rental Amiibo (supplied by SPLI)
    • PLEASE NOTE: There is only one prize, so if you are pairing up with a friend and their Amiibo, you would have to share the prize (you can work that out amongst yourselves right?) If you win and you had a SPLI Rental Amiibo on your team, you can keep the prize.
  • Smash Battle¬†Format
    • 3 Stock
    • 8 Minutes
    • Small Battlefield
    • No Items (unless equipped due to a Custom Ability)
    • Custom Moves & Stats are LEGAL
    • 2 Amiibos Max per Entrant
  • Registration Open 5pm – 6pm
  • Level 50 Amiibo Recommended
  • Double/Single Elimination depending on number of participants

What You Missed: Dave & Busters Birthday Bash!

This past Sunday, SPLI members gathered at Dave & Busters in Westbury, NY to celebrate the birthdays of many SPLI members. We played lots of awesome arcade games, talked strategy on the latest StreetPass games that were released last week, and some members even did some hunting in MH4U at the event!

Of course, what would kind of birthday party would this be without cake? We all sat down together for a meal and shared some delicious cake that was generously donated by SPLI member Damon D.

Happy Birthday to all SPLI April Babies! Thanks to everyone who came to celebrate our birthdays, we had a lot of fun and met lots of new friends! See you at our next event, this Sunday (4/26) for our next Amiibo Only Tournament from 5-8pm!

Dave & Busters Birthday Bash

Two years ago, SPLI held a birthday party event for a few Admins who all happen to have a birthday in April. Well… this year we decided to do it again! Unfortunately our favorite DnB (Farmingdale) closed a few weeks ago, so we will be hosting this event at the Westbury location. It is somewhat accessible to public transportation! You can either take¬†the LIRR¬†to Carle Place (rare) and walk, or take the LIRR to Mineola and take the N24 bus down Old Country Road to reach Dave & Busters at the Source Mall!

This is a casual meetup. You can come late, leave early, do your own thing and play whatever games you want! Presents not required. Cake is limited! lol

WHEN: Saturday, April 18th

TIME: 2:30PM – 5:00PM

WHERE: Dave & Busters Westbury (1504 Old Country Road
Westbury, NY 11590)

RSVP: https://www.facebook.com/events/416797158499053/

What You Missed: SPLI Amiibo Only Tournament (March)

Last night, SPLI hosted our latest Amiibo Only Tournament at Game Hut in Babylon, NY. ¬†There were many upsets, and Weegee didn’t make it to the finals! (Phew!) However, we did see Sean S. take home the top prize once again with his Mario Amiibo “SMPS”!

Next month we will be changing the format for the Amiibo Only Tournament, in an effort to switch things up and give others a chance to win. Stay tuned for more info! Until then, take a look at some photos from our March Tournament.
