Good start, a thread should definitely help with things too. :)

Hopefully I'll be able to attend one of your tourneys some day!

Can anyone go to the meet?

If so, I'll need to know where your house is.

Put my mains down as Wario, Donkey Kong, and Link.

Alright, but now I have more questions...

1. How many Wiis/TVs do you have available?

2. Do you want people to help by bringing Wiis/TVs?

3. How many people are going?

4. Are you planning on recording any matches?

5. This one is a bit awkward... How old is everyone?

3 probgably about 6 or 7, not much of a turnout but its a start.

4 no, I dont have recording equipment

5. I'm 19, every one else will be around that age and there are 2 people coming that are 24

this thread is so dead.
c'mon Canberra you can do better than this, lets show those other state why we're the capital.
anyways, I'm thinking of hosting a tourney sometime late January, if your interested leave some feedback,
and there will be frequent smash meet's on Saturdays starting soon so a heads up for that too.

I'm interested! *Tries to think of a name*

Well... The thing is... My parents think it's just a bit dodgy for me to be going to some random person's house to play Brawl...

Bogoron; how old are you?

If you're really young (I'm thinking 15 or younger?) parent's thinking "dodgy" is of course a problem, but you gave the reason why themselves "random person".

I'm sure Luke, as an adult, is fine with talking to your parents personally and I'm sure if your parents are fully aware of address, phone number and have personally talked to Luke there would be little to NO issues.

Hey Luke I'm currently setting up a semi-regular game with one of my mates, have to see if that goes anywhere. Also at least 2 of Jambo's mates are getting into the game, I'm sure they would up for a tourney. These guys are a bit younger than Jambo and I, which might not matter but it's less odd for any teenagers.

@Bogoron: like Shaya said, any of us will be happy to talk to your folks. We're a pretty nice bunch :p

Ack! Of course!
I'll get to work on that!

(As for guessing my age you were close enough.)

I'm more worried about what you guys think of me and my folks...

Well, I'll talk on Luke's behalf if he's scared of folks.

I'm sure their main concern is your safety and also who you're dealing with. It's been very easy in the past for me to just say

"Hello my name is yada, I'm 18 (now 19) studying at UNSW and would love to be able to clear up any doubts or issues you have with your son attending an event run by myself".

"Are there drugs?"
No.

"Is there sex?"
No.

"Is there alcohol?"
No.

"What time does it finish"
yada

"Are you homosexual?"
No.

"Do you do drugs?"
No.

"Does anyone else do drugs?"
Not that I'm aware of, and definitely not on the day.

Yada yada.

lol at drugs, and me being scared of folks.

like throwback said, we're all pretty laid back, its not like super formal or anything.
I'm quite happy to talk to parents, in person if need be.
I also have a security license and am first aid certified if that helps put their mind at rest.

Bogoron, I don't know how to say this without being a d!ck, but here goes anyway:

1. I think the majority of people can relate to being somewhat reluctant for other people to meet their parents as a teenager. As you grow up you realise that most people are much less judgemental than you'd think.

2. We're all gamers - I can't think of any group that is more inclusive, except perhaps musos - and I have muso friends. We don't care if you are black/white, fat/skinny, short/tall, uncool/ cool, male/female or whatever. We just like to play & have fun. So really you don't have to worry about what we are going to think of you/your parents, nobody is going to ostracise you (unless you play MK....j/k...or am I?).

I'm not really that reluctant for people to meet my parents...

The age gap is the only thing that bothers me in the slightest.


And yeah I main Wario.

>_>

It's not really that much of an age gap, not to mention it doesn't really make much of a difference.

Actually, I'm not gonna really bother to get into it.

But still...seriously >_>
