Good Game Fest Draws Attendees From Across Maryland, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
The Mid-Atlantic Gigabit Innovation Collaboratory (MAGIC), along with organizers Tables and Towers and Save Point, are pleased to announce the success of the first annual Good Game Fest that took place this past weekend at TownMall of Westminster.
“The success of this event shows the interest that our region has in Esports,” says Kim Samuelson, MAGIC’s Program Director. “This, in combination with Westminster’s gigabit fiber network, shows the potential our community has to be a regional Esports hub.”
Of the 200+ attendees, there were over 70 who competed in the video game tournaments. The winners’ gamertags of each tournament were as follows:
Super Smash Bros Ultimate
1st: Team: we have ssl
2nd: Team: Coalition of Cool
3rd: Team: Robo Lions
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
First, second, and third place winners of each tournament were given a cash prize and a gift card from event sponsor Ledo Pizza. The first place winners of each tournament were also given a pair of Ravens tickets donated by the Baltimore Ravens’ new Ravens Gaming League.
The Good Game Biz Battle, a team building tournament for Good Game Fest sponsors, was won by Gauge Digital Media. Second place was Startup Portal, with Dynamic Dimension Technologies and Ting Internet tied for third place.
The festival also hosted gaming industry conferences and panels, live music, tabletop game demonstrations, a free-play retro arcade, and vendor marketplace.
