  • The winner will be announced within a few days after the due date.
  • We will contact the winner around that time.
  • The winner will be chosen based upon the overall appearance of the piece and its conformance with the theme and spirit of the convention and the competition.
  • The odds of winning depend on the number of entries submitted.

Are you up for a Smashing good time? I hope so as we are having Super Smash Bros. for Wii U competitions at G.A.M. on March 19th! Free sign-ups for attendees will be at the convention in Naples, Utah.

There will be two competitions. The first is going to be a one versus one tournament using the "For Glory" mode which means no stage shifts and no item/pickups to keep things strategic and fair.

The other competition will be a "Figure Player" contest using Amiibo. In this one, players will scan their Amiibo figurines into the game and step back so that their Amiibo can virtually duke it out against one another in a fight to the finish.

Prizes will be furnished for both the tournament and the FP contest. I've heard from a reliable source that a "Franklin badge" from Earthbound will be amongst the prizes included in the prize pack for the first place winner in the tournament. You'd better get practicing!

Say, while you are at it, you should share this page with your friends and post it to your social media accounts. That way we can really ramp up the heat in the competitions by having even more contenders fighting in them!

Be sure to keep an eye out for the August 4th and August 11th editions of the Vernal Express, the Uintah Basin Standard, and the Thrifty Shopper (A.K.A. U.B. Shoppin') for the new G.A.M. Convention classifieds! Look for the two of them in the "Miscellaneous" section of the classifieds on Tuesday of those weeks.

Of course, this isn't the first time G.A.M. has listed classifieds to advertise the convention. We've also advertised this way earlier this year, but haven't posted about it on our Web site until now. Well, as we're ramping up to the date of the convention (Only 2 weeks, 5 days to go!), it's time to post some more classifieds, so there you go!

People have been asking about what they can expect to see at G.A.M. this year. While we can't say, "This is everything that will be there as set in stone!" quite yet, we wanted to share some details with you about what we are planning on having.

More concrete details and the schedule of events will be announced as we get closer to the day of the convention. But our plan currently is:

Main Events

  • Video: Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva movie (~2 hours)
  • Discussion panel: Anime & manga around Uintah County (1 hour)
  • Video: Patlabor TV episodes (~1 hour)
  • Event: Costume showcase (cosplay display) (1 hour)
  • Discussion panel: Japanese video games & how to spot them (1 hour)
  • Video game tournament (Super Smash Bros.) (2 hours)

Concurrent Side Events

  • Video game tournament sign-ups (6 hours)
  • Video game free-play (multi-player games) (8 hours)

We are aiming for a family-friendly convention. Therefore all of the videos, panels, and games will be appropriate for most ages - everything will be rated the equivalent of PG-13 or less.

Bonus Announcement: We are proud to announce that children under ten years old will get into this year's convention... FOR FREE! That's right, there will be no need for a babysitter just because you want to go to G.A.M. Make it a family function: bring all of your family, young and old... and don't forget your friends too!
