Thirty years ago, The Wizard opened up in theaters and sparked the collective imagination of the Nintendo generation. The idea of travelling to a giant game tournament was seldom heard of, and never on such a extravagant scale. To see kids excelling at video games and going to Universal Studios seemed like the things of which dreams are made. And now, Let’s Play Gaming Expo is going to make all of those dreams happen come true.
The Wizard 30th Anniversary Celebration will start with a multi-day tournament paying homage to the video game cult classic The Wizard. The tournament will be streamed all weekend. Attendees will have Friday and Saturday to register their qualifying scores and then we’ll be cutting it down to our finalists, who will game it out on Sunday to prove who is the true gaming wizard, with the championship being streamed live on Sunday.
Following the Expo on Friday night (August 9th) will be a screening of The Wizard at the Alamo Drafthouse in Las Colinas.
