Super Smash Bros. Kong Quest
Gamers of all ages compete in a Wii U Super Smash Bros. Tournament
“Super Smash Bros.” may be a nostalgic experience for many. But for “Kong Quest” Tournament goers, it’s more of a reason to gather with friends on the first Sunday of every month, and may be a chance to win some money too.
“Kong Quest” is the monthly “Super Smash Bros.” tournament hosted at Paradox Comics-N-Cards in downtown Fargo.
The tournament that began over three years ago and is now on its third organizer, but none have seen growth and the sustained success that former event organizer, Josh Kruger, has seen. “It’s like a lifestyle really, I meet all my friends through video games.”
Gamers from all over gather for an afternoon of gaming delight. The tournament that plays host to singles, and doubles for “Super Smash Bros.” offers more than just that. Gamers can also play other fighting games such as “Street Fighter” and “Dragon Ball Xenoverse.”
This video will give some insight into the monthly tournament and the bonding experience that many consider more of a social event than a competitive tournament.
