Oh yeah; time to pull out my Atari and practice!

What about all of the tournaments put on by your sponsors? Will they take place Saturday or Sunday? During the 2600 Tourney? Will they be included only with the 2600 Tourney price, or are those ones included to any "non 2600 championship" attendee?

maybe those ones arent as set-up as the atari one, like someone at their merch booth letting people play and writing down when someone gets a high score? whats going on?

Hi Bo: those extra competitions are running Sat and Sun and they are included in the non-Atari2600Champ-price. They are run by the booths (vendors/exhibitors) and there are some cool prizes.

Would I have to pay to enter the Xbox or NES contests? Also, will there be any knid of a swap meet?

Yes, you'll need a day ticket to get in. There are tons of competitions throughout the day (last time I counted it was over 15).
