AtariMania II and Harmony Games news

 

Following the steps from the success of the 2013 Harmony Games and two
special games from last year, We will once again bringing it back this year.

The Harmony Games is a High Score Club to celebrate the homebrew games of the
2600,in 2012 it was originally a 3 round tournament with the same games being
played at VGS'12. In 2013, with the success of the 2012 games it was decided to
expand the season from 3 rounds to 12 and with the introduction of Atarimania we
decided to include one round for those to play at the event to win a free ticket
to VGS'13(due to technical problems, it wasn't possible) and we also had special
game at VGS'13 as well,which went fairly well.

The 2014 Harmony Games start on April 14th and end on September 29th.

AtariMania is scheduled for May 17th,2014 from noon to 7pm

yep, I told james compton on fb about it as well since the c64 show also uses the hotel

the best spot I think for VCFW/C=64 show would prob be holiday inn express in hillside,il

or prob at vfw hall
