Would I need to show an official proof of my age such as a state ID to enter the venue? I'm 18 so I can enter, but some people might not see that for themselves and boot me.

Yes, this is every Tuesday! I highly suggest joining the New England Melee FB Group, as it is the best way to connect directly with players in New England.

Our recent turnouts have been:
10/15 - 19
10/22 - 23
10/29 - 27
11/5 - 41


We don't do P:M because of logistical concerns. Perhaps in the future we will find a way to include P:M, but for now if you bring a P:M setup that's fine. You will be responsible for it - If you bring a Wii w/ P:M & NO TV odds are we wont have a TV available for you to set P:M up on.

Sweet! At least now I know of an accessible venue to play with skilled players any week. Do you have a ruleset for the games being played? Also, is this Melee, Brawl, or both?

Would I need to show an official proof of my age such as a state ID to enter the venue? I'm 18 so I can enter, but some people might not see that for themselves and boot me.
Really concerned about this.

This is only for Melee.

The ruleset is the tournament standard. 8 minutes, 4 stocks. 1-2-1 stage striking. Battlefield, FD, DL64, Yoshi's Story, FoD starter stages. PKMN Stadium counterpick. 1 ban in bo3. No bans in bo5.

You do need something legally proving your date of birth - Birth certificate, State ID, Passport ... Any government document w/ your date of birth ought to suffice.

It's at a bar, so yes.

However, Game Over on 4/1 is not occurring. After NSA2 I'm giving myself a week off of TOing.

This is weekly, typically.
