SPLI 2nd Anniversary Details!

This weekend is SPLI’s highly anticipated 2nd Anniversary event!! We have been very busy preparing for the big day, as we see this event as not only a chance to have a big party – but also to say thank you to all of our fans! For this event, we are planning to host tournaments for the two most popular game franchises on Long Island for Nintendo fans… that is of course, Pokémon and Super Smash Bros!
