The tournaments continue to come along at various Gameworks locations around the country and the next one players can look forward to is a fighter tournament at the location in Tempe Arizona. There are three games they will be holding the tournament on, Street Fighter 2, 3 and 4.  A prize pool of $1000 is up on the block, where the 1st place winner gets $700 and 4 4 hour playcards, 2nd place wins $200 and play cards, 3rd place $100 and playcards and 4th place $50 + play cards. 5th through 16th places will win 1 hr free play cards so at least you’ll get something for getting in the top 16.

The tournament begins on March 20th and goes until the 22nd, with the semi-finals and the finals being held on Sunday March 22nd. Hit the post break for more details including rules. And if anyone gets some video from the event, send it along to us so we can post it.
