Free CS:GO Tournament Sponsored by Nvidia

Join us on Friday, April 22nd at 6:00pm for our free CS:GO tournament! Participants will be awarded a player spot in order of event registration on the evening of the event. The first 30 registered participants who are present at the start of the event will receive a spot for participation on one of six teams.

Must register here to get a spot in the event!
Participants will receive:
– Free Center Fee and Game Play.
– Giveaways.
– First Place Prize for each member of the winning team – $20 Steam Gift Card.

Official Rules as per Nvidia: (full rules available on the signup page)

Players will be asked by the Tournament Official to provide their CS GO Competitive Matchmaking Rank.  The six Players with the highest Competitive Matchmaking Rank will be designated Team Captains.  Team Captains will then select from among the remaining Players to form their random team consisting of five Players.  The Team Captain with the lowest Competitive Matchmaking Rank will pick first, the next lowest Competitive Matchmaking Rank will pick second, next lowest Competitive Matchmaking Rank will pick third and the Team Captain with the highest Competitive Matchmaking Rank will pick fourth.  This order of selection will continue until all Players at each Host Location have been placed on a Team.

The settings for all Tournament Matches are as follows:

Game Type: Defusal
Team Size: Five versus Five

It is the responsibility of both Teams to verify that the Match settings are correct prior to starting a Match. Once a Match has begun, Teams may not restart or replay due to incorrect Match Settings, unless both Teams mutually agree to do so.

A Match is complete when both halves are over. The total score, based on rounds won in each half, will determine the winner.

International Tabletop Day: April 30th

Join us for one the biggest gaming events of the year! On Saturday, April 30th from 11:00am to whenever, we’ll be running an all-day celebration of tabletop gaming!

This event is free to the public. Feel free to bring something to share with others or play something off our demo shelf. If you’d like to volunteer to run a game, let Lauren know at lauren@mothershipatx.com to get on the schedule. Full schedule will be posted here the week of the event so you can plan accordingly.

We’ll be hosting a potluck as well, so bring some food, grab a seat, and celebrate games all day with us! We’ll also be ordering some pizzas and bringing up some cupcakes and cookies so we’ll be well-fed all day.

Lastly, 10% of all board game sales for the day will be donated to Kaboom! a non-profit grounded in the belief that the well-being of society begins with the well-being of children.
