One late night on March 26, 2011, the very first Old-Schooled retro gaming tournament was held at Tower of Games. A single elimination tournament with six entrants, the participants tested their mettle against 25 different games assigned in blind match-ups including Ms. Pac-Man, Contra, and Tetris. Since then Old-Schooled has changed over the years but its core has remained the same: to be a venue for anyone willing to face the challenge to put their retro gaming skills to the test while having a lot of fun doing so!

The Old-Schooled League
Currently Old-Schooled takes the form of a league taking place over three rounds, Beginner, Intermediate, and Expert. Players individually schedule a trial where an official records their performance in a series of challenges for that round. How well a player does in their trial determines who advances to the next round, and ultimately who is crowned the champion for each season. It is preferred players schedule their trials on Mondays, though Sundays and other days are possible. For a full in depth synopsis of the league structure go here.
