In August, I wrote about a retro-style, web-based hockey video game that you could play for money setup to promote a graphic novel I later reviewed. The date had to be pushed back some fo the game tournament, so I wanted to shoot out a quick update now that the date is finalized. On December 13th, from noon Eastern Standard Time to midnight EST (that's 9 AM - 9 PM for us folks in the superior Pacific timezone).
Start practicing before the tournament by playing the game here. It's free to play and join the tournament, and you can win $100.
My initial review of the game can be found here, and the details on the tournament from the book publisher's Facebook are below:
To celebrate the release October release of "The Hockey Saint" graphic novel and also "The Hockey Saint" Arcade game (our retro, 8-bit) online hockey game, we are holding a tournament on Saturday, December 13th from Noon EST to Midnight EST. The players with the 3 highest goal differential final scores against the computer opponent will win shop.nhl.com gift certificates. 1st place will receive a $100 gift cert, 2nd place will win a $75 gift cert and 3rd place gets a $50 gift cert.
