Throwdown Thursday

Location - Hampton Hall of Civil Engineering, Room 3144



Schedule - Every Thursday, room opens at 5:00 PM, bracket starts at 6:00 PM, leave by 11:00 PM

Anyone in the venue who wishes to join our weekly’s tournament bracket will be entered into it by one of our TOs (Tournament Organizers). They will seed players into the bracket and will begin the tournament at approximately 6:00 PM.

Entering into our venue is free, and anyone can stay and socialize or play friendly matches. The fee for entering the weekly bracket is $2, which is contributed to the tournament’s prize pool. The entry will be only $1 if you bring a setup to the venue, which consists of the following:

  • Nintendo Switch
  • Nintendo Switch dock
  • Nintendo Switch power cable
  • A Gamecube Controller USB adapter (official Nintendo one is greatly prefered to a third party one)
  • A copy of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Can be a cartridge or a digital download on your Switch, please have all characters unlocked, and all character DLC purchased).


  • The computer lab we use has monitors and monitor cables, but the monitors unfortunately do not output sound. For the time being, we would appreciate anyone who brings speakers for our setups.

    You are allowed to use any controller you like to play the game, but please remember to disconnect your wireless controllers from the Switch after you leave a setup. Someone may have a spare controller for you to use if you don’t have one, but it is best to invest in acquiring your own personal controller. Please don’t use controllers with turbo or macro functions.
