Grand Opening Smash Tournament

Welcome to the Grand Opening of Best Buds Gaming Lounge! In honor of the support we have received so far from the Smash community, we are going to be hosting our largest Smash tournament ever!

Best Buds Gaming Lounge is located in Bellingham, WA. Bellingham is conveniently located in between Seattle and Vancouver, BC, and is an ideal location for regional tournaments as we are right between two regions. We will host weekly tournaments and one large tournament a month.

We are proudly supported by Tony's Coffee and Red Bull! That means that there will be FREE Tony's Cold Brew and Red Bull available for attendees. We are extraordinarily grateful for the support.

Here's the kicker: Red Bull has let us know that the more people that enter the tournament, the cooler prizes they are authorized to give away. The more people that compete, the better the pool! Red Bull wants to do regular tournaments with us, so it's in everyone's interest for this to be huge!

Please preregister! There will be a $2 late fee for participants that register day-of. Preregistration helps us seed before the tournament, and it helps us run the tournament more smoothly.

There will be a stream setup for this event!

Please reach out and let us know if you can provide any setups. We have many, but every setup that comes in will only make the tournament run even more smoothly.
