What a BLAST! Last Saturday we had a video game challenge at Bookmans Speedway. The games were Mario Kart on the Wii and Dance Central 2 on the XBOX 360 Kinect. Many turned up to play and all left with something. We gave away over $500 in Prizes and trade.
The Tucson Video Game Challenge at Bookmans Speedway was this past Saturday and it was super successful. This year we did things a little differently by having the good people of DEVASTATION host the event. People of all ages lined up even before registration for our Marvel vs. Capcom 3 tournment with a chance to win some Bookmans spending money and bragging rights.

Bookmans Flagstaff held our awesome video game challenge and it was a great time! The kids played Cars for the X-Box 360 and the adults played the super awesome new Mortal Kombat, also for the X-Box 360. The new Mortal Kombat is amazing, particularly in high-definition on on a 55” LED TV. We had tough competition -- some of our former champs were knocked out in the first or second round!
We had a blast this weekend at Bookmans on Ina... literally. Hard-core gamers came out of the safety of their own recliners to face-off in a one-on-one deathmatch, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 style. We fired up the XBox 360 and let our customers go at it for some cool prizes, like $100 trade credit and the much coveted 1st place trophy.
If your idea of a fun Saturday is spending almost 5 hours playing intense round after round of first-person shooter action in the new Modern Warfare 2 battlefields, then you probably should have been at Bookmans Phoenix this weekend instead of playing the exact same thing on your couch or at your buddy’s house.
Oh, thank you so much to everybody who came out to our kids' tournament at Bookmans Mesa on Saturday, May 15th, 2010. With a total of 46 participants winning prizes, eating cupcakes and hanging out with ME, Mario, and my brother Luigi!
There were three top winners, James who won 3rd place, Tiffany who won 2nd place, and of course, who can forget Bryce, who won the grand prize trophy and a hundred dollars in Bookmans store credit!
There were more than 100 cupcakes consumed, 50 prize bags given, a ton of trivia hand outs, and of course a lot of Mario Kart Racing for Nintendo Wii! Check out all the great pictures from the event here.
See you all next time,
Mario (& Luigi, too!)Read More...
It was an intense day today at Bookmans Ina, where kids turned out in droves to get their hands on the Nintendo Wii controllers and challenge their peers to a game of Super Smash Bros. Brawl!
This afternoon marked another entry in Bookmans' annual Video Game Challenge, and to say it was a success would be an understatement. For a few hours there was punching, kicking, fireballs, telekinetic throws and all other forms of combat in the living room. Of course, I'm talking about Super Smash Bros. Brawl for the Nintendo Wii! Kids 13 and under came to hang out with their friends, and as one kid explained, "do what we do every weekend anyway." Only this time, there were prizes involved!
This weekend, Bookmans' Phoenix and Mesa stores kicked off Video Game Challenge Month (that's May!) with the first of the challenges at their stores. Over at our Mesa store, we teamed up with the Devastation team and hosted a Super Street Fighter IV tournament for teens and adults 14 and older. The competition was tough indeed, with a huge tournout! More than 50 matches were played, but only one came away with champion's bragging rights. After the dust cleared, "Juicebox" was our grand prize winner, with "Mr. SNK" and "Flook" coming in a close second and third, respectively. A special thanks to Robb and the Devastation team for helping us out with this event.
