SPLI Upcoming Events

Wondering when the next StreetPass Long Island event will be? There are lots of fun events planned for SPLI members, so here’s all the info you need!

March 20 (2pm to 5pm) – Amiibo Tournament at A Store of Fire and Dice

Bring your trained Amiibo figures and battle in a singles format tournament (1 v 1, 3 stock, 6 minute max) to see which Amiibo has the most skill! A prize will be awarded to the winner! ASOFAD is also running a regular Smash tournament for those who wants to get a taste of the action for themselves.

March 23 (8:30pm) – Amiibo Wars at Lizard Lounge

The Amiibo Wars tournament is back at the Lizard Lounge! Bring up to 4 Amiibo figures to battle it out in 8-Player Smash mode. $5 Entry Fee. Also enjoy drink specials and karaoke throughout the event. 21 and up only, please!

April 8 (8:00pm) – Night of the Nerds at The Velvet Lounge

Those who have been to a Night of the Nerds event before know about all the awesomeness – including awesome bands playing live, classy burlesque dancers, and of course incredible cosplay! We’ll be hosting a video game tournament at the event as well, keep an eye out for more details!

April 9 (5:00pm) – Monster Hunter NYC 3rd Anniversary

To celebrate their group’s 3rd Anniversary, Monster Hunter NYC is collaborating with local StreetPass groups such as SPLI and SPNYC (and others!) to host an epic event at McMahon’s Public House in Brooklyn! Tournaments that have been announced include MH4U, Smash Bros. and Pokemon!

SPLI Amiibo Only Tournament (March)

Last month’s Amiibo Only Tournament helped to form some interesting rivalries among the top performing challengers. And when Jeff’s Luigi Amiibo “Weegee” won the tournament, others vowed vengeance. (Specifically Debbie and her Bowser Amiibo “King Koopa” who was unfortunately trounced early on in the tournament.)

As we mentioned at the event, SPLI is looking to make this a monthly tournament (schedule permitting). This time we plan to also do a live stream of the tournament on our Twitch TV channel!

The 2014 SPLI AWARDS Results!!

It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for… the results of the 2014 SPLI AWARDS! Once again, our favorite games presented in fun infographic format. Please note that some categories had so many voting options that they could not all be included in the results. Thank you to everyone who voted last year. Enjoy!


What You Missed: SPLI 2nd Anniversary!

For those of you who weren’t able to attend our SPLI 2nd Anniversary Party on August 17th at Empire Gaming in Farmingdale, here is a quick recap of all the fun stuff that you missed!

Since we know that Long Island gamers like to play both Smash Bros. and Pokémon, we decided to run two tournaments! SPLI hosted a Pokémon Triathlon, which comprised of Single, Double and Triple Battles. Meanwhile, Team Crossfire (#TeamXFIRE) hosted a Smash Bros. Tournament, so there was awesome gaming all day long!

Congratulations to Peter O. (aka Shellshock) who won the Pokémon Triathlon!
