About this project
www.somaricon.com For the EVENT...
Baltimore, Maryland, home of the Ravens & Orioles as well a tourist attractions Inner Harbor & National Aquarium. Birthplace of Babe Ruth. What a great city.
Maryland homes hundreds of gamers that have never had the opportunity to travel to New York, Philadelphia or California for some of the great tournaments. For example NorthEast Championships is one of the most popular fighting game tourneys on the east coast. The biggest of them all is EVO in Las Vegas.
We here at SoMari Comics & Gaming plan to remedy that. We know we have the talent and we want to invite the countries best to compete at SoMariCon at the Downtown Holiday Inn of Baltimore City. We are asking for $6,000.00 to make our convention a success and with your help it will be.
SoMariCon is about fun, fanboys and competition. It's put together by people who do it and appreciate what the community has become. Gamers everywhere will have the opportunity to meet & greet other popular gamers for the first time. With SoMariCon the possibilities never end..
The SoMari Gaming Convention will include:
-Super Street Fighter 4 AE
-Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3
-Mortal Kombat 9
Kickstarter has always been a way to make a dream a reality. With the right push anything is possible. For example, look at projects pledging $6000 and ending up with $26,000. Kickstarter is not the outlet for the main gamer, it's for the interested individual and helping the cause of bringing Maryland, hopefully it's largest tournament to date. SoMariCon will happen regardless.
Prizes & Raffles and Special meet & greets with invited guests.
YOUR BACKING WILL BE USED FOR:
Securing the Holiday Inn Auditorium, Marketing the event, Streaming the event, a Projection system & and any back-up hardware/software we may need for the event.
We hope you will support the cause and Thank you for all of your support. Our backers have a nice bit of rewards to choose from, so take a look.
All updates will be made here and on our website:
We hope to see Big Names like:
IFC Yipes, RugalB, KingVoldo, ChrisG and many more.
Risks and challenges
Our biggest challenges is making sure that we have the correct amount of consoles and screens versus the amount of competitor's we expect to have. Hardware is the most expensive thing. Promotion also plays a major role i the amount of success we have for this great event. If we can hit our goal, we know we will be successful.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
