Join us throughout January to take on our retro console game ‘Tournament of the Month’, featuring Mortal Kombat 2.

  History: Mortal Kombat II is a 1993 arcade fighting game originally produced by Midway for arcades back in 1993. It was later ported to multiple home console systems, including MS-DOS, Amiga, Game Boy, Game Gear, Sega Genesis, 32X, Sega Saturn, Super Nintendo Entertainment System and PlayStation 1.

  Entry fee: £5.00 per entrant, giving access to qualifiers and tournament.

  Prize: Free VR Play Pass for x1 player (worth £45.00)

  Qualifiers: Take place during store opening hours from Tuesday 3rd January 2023 until Tuesday 24th January 2023.

  Tournament finals: Take place from 6pm on Tuesday 31st January 2023.

  How to enter: Simply pop down to the store during the qualifiers period and speak to a member of staff to take part. Keep the tournament final date free just in case you qualify to take part in the finals!


  • All players must turn up 10 minutes before the qualifier and tournament start to ensure that they are able to take part in it.
  • Qualifiers take place throughout the first 3 weeks of the month.
  • Qualifiers are per player, playing against the game’s built-in AI using the game’s normal / default difficulty level.
  • The same side and AI character selection will be selected by the referee and used for each match in the qualifiers.
  • Each player will pay a non-refundable £5.00 entry fee and play 3 rounds against AI in total.
  • Each round consists of 3 matches, giving the entrant a total of 9 matches to earn the highest number of wins against AI.
  • The maximum number of matches each entrant can win in the qualifiers will be 9 matches.
  • We will keep track of the outcomes of each round for the qualifiers and post it live so that the entrants know their current standing throughout the month.
  • The top 6 players with the highest total scores from the qualifiers will then be put into the final Tournament to play 1 vs 1 against the other finalists.
  • Each finalist will compete against every other finalist on Tuesday 31st January 2023 at 6pm.
  • Each finalist will play a total of 3 rounds (9 matches) against every other finalist to try and achieve their highest total number of wins.
  • The winner will be determined based on the finalist that achieves the highest number of wins overall.
  • If there’s a tie against two or more finalist players, the overall tournament winner will be determined by sudden death.
  • Any spectators must spectate at a reasonable distance from the competitors.
  • All buttons will be checked by officials before every match to ensure that they all work as intended.
  • Any players or spectators that refuse to follow the referee’s instructions will be disqualified from competing and asked to leave the premises.
  • Entry to tournament is not valid with any discount or promotional offer.
  • Referee’s decision is final.
