Home »  Universal Rules

Rules/Formats: We try to adhere to major tournament standards with as little modifications as possible. Some rules are slightly modified to adhere to convention/game room times.

Universal Rules
⦁    Personal Fight sticks and controllers are allowed: No turbo mods allowed.
⦁    You encouraged to bring your own controller: While NGA possesses a few fight sticks, with multiple tournaments going we cannot guarantee use of a stick. There will be ample controllers available.
⦁    Headsets will be allowed (no full surround sound headset units that require a power cord to power). Must be connectable to a Standard Headset jack.
⦁    Everyone is encouraged to check buttons in first 5 seconds of the match afterwards you cannot claim “faulty equipment” in the result of a loss.
⦁    Button mapping and converters ARE allowed while turbo is NOT.
⦁    Wireless sticks/pads/remotes will be allowed. However, we require that you pull out your battery when you are not playing to avoid disrupting tournament matches.
⦁    All fighters take place on PS3 and shooters on 360.
⦁    Brackets are all single elimination (This is mostly due to the number of events going on simultaneously at a convention), Exception is money matches/ prize pot tournaments in which Double Elimination always.
⦁    Double-Blind Select can always be chosen to begin a match.
⦁    The winner of a game must stick with the same character used to win for the following game
⦁    Except in the case of Smash Bros. Loser can always change characters.
⦁    In addition, pausing or restarting the game/match for any reason, except with the consent of the opponent will result in a forfeit of that particular game/round (whichever is smaller). This includes battery/controller problems.
⦁    Players have 1 minute to report to and begin their matches and will be disqualified if unable to do so
⦁    Unless in another tournament, in which the T.O. should be notified prior to.
⦁    It is the player’s responsibility to notify a staffer over a dispute on rules.
Winners are required to notify staffers of the results of their match. This will speed up the process greatly and help us run a smooth tournament.

Mystery Game Tournament (i.e. Retro Gaming Gauntlet)
⦁    Each round will feature a different game.
⦁    Each game and the rules for each will be announced at the beginning of each round.

Burn Notice

Burn Notice

a Veteran gamer of over 25 years. Non-Competitive. Grew up all over the country in a military family. Along the way learned that video games and sports were my outlets. After creating A&G Ohio (now A&G Con) and distancing myself from undesirables, NGA was created alongside of Javier Guevara. After years of touring the country with my extended family I find myself spending a majority of my time either on the road, fixing vehicles, consoles, or handling business deals. Helped NGA Inc. form in 2012 into a non profit organization and consumed A&G, NerdPow!, and Cutie Mark Con in 2013. In 2014 I have been focusing a lot of energy into creating NGA's first Video Game as well as 2 movies! My love for video games: Platformers and Story based games. Favorites: Assassins Creed Series. *I have finished all the series within 2-3 days with a 95% or higher. Raving Rabbids Kinnect, Rock Band, Taiko NoTatsujin to name a few. Favorite Movies: The Prestige, Gone in 60 Seconds, and anything Mel Brooks and Jim Carrey. Love for gaming is only outlasted by my love of FOOD and giving back! The more charity events the better!
