From Downtown! NBA Jam Throwdown

A tournament dedicated everyone's favourite basketball arcade game? Now that's a slam dunk.

Brisbane's first arcade bar keeps shooting for the gaming stars, and winning. And, at their latest themed afternoon of retro button-mashing fun, they're hoping you'll do just that too.

With NBA Jam one of Netherworld's prized acquisitions, it was only a matter of time until they threw a party to celebrate. Or, a tournament to be more accurate. At From Downtown! NBA Jam Throwdown, 24 teams will play two-on-two for $500 in cash, Netherworld tokens and a championship trophy, with all games projected onto the venue's big screen.

$20 per team pre-registration is essential, and dressing up in matching team uniforms is highly recommended (in fact, it'll even earn you a couple of free beers for going the extra mile). Plus, as an extra bit of fun, the bar will be screening Space Jam and Air Bud following the main comp (from 7.30pm). Now that's a slam dunk.
