This year at Game On Expo: Retro Championships 2019, we have an exciting lineup of tournament games! We also have a 25th anniversary celebration of the 1994 Powerfest which will include a tournament that will happen along side the Retro Championships and have it's own finals and prize.
The nitty gritty: In the Quarterfinals, competitors will battle for the fastest time in Mario Kart 64 for a coveted Top 8 spot.

Our finals consists of 5 games from different genres. The 8 finalists will play each game starting with the player with the 8th best Mario Kart time. They will earn points based on where they place in each game and the cumulative total will determine our 2019 Retro Championships winner.
