1UPX Esports makes their return to Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Retro in Bowling Green, OH for a new Xtreme Challenge event. Teams of 4 will represent each of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as they compete head to head in a number of classic TMNT games to see which team is worthy enough to represent the true lean mean green machines! This epic battle will take place on June 13, 2020.

We know how popular our Xtreme Challenges have gotten over the last couple years so we want to make sure we have a few offerings this season. The Mario Maker 2 Xtreme Challenge will take place at Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Retro in Bowling Green, OH on August 22nd, 2020 and will send 16 players head to head in a single elimination tournament to see who can handle the trickiest courses we throw at them. Fun will be had by everyone…. watching. This event is for those who think they have serious Super Mario skills!

For those who are very serious about competing we offer SMASHXL, the big brother and follow up to the hit SMASHX. This Smash Bros Ultimate double elimination tournament will boast a prize pool up to $5000 with 128 available player slots. All proceeds from this event will be used to further develop the esport scene in our area. SMASHXL will take place at RESET in Rossford, OH on September 20, 2020.
