School is back in session for most but that hasn’t put a stop to opportunities for Arizona gamers to school each other in upcoming tournaments.

Friday is proving the staging ground for all the action taking place this weekend, and it is jam-packed with a variety of competitions to choose from.

Among the contenders is CADE Art Gallery and Old School Video Arcade with their Friday Street Fighter II tournament. The competition is free-to-enter, begins at 7 p.m., and will be played on their Street Fighter II Championship Edition cabinet. Prizes will include goodie bags and all-time bragging rights.

Another option for gamers on Friday is LAN Speed Games own Lock-in/All-Nighter Event. The event is set to kick off at 10 p.m. and all participants will be sealed into the building until 8 a.m. Saturday morning. Pizza will be included and there will be tournaments for various games held throughout the night for prizes and giveaways.

Those who wish to participate in the Lock-In must sign up beforehand at the store and pay a fee of $17.50 ($20 the day of the event) to reserve their seat. LAN Speed Games will be closed to all other customers during the Lock-In time.

Finally, Arizona’s own Team Hazmat will be hosting their own slew of tournaments on Friday. The crew will be hosting tournaments for Mortal Kombat, Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, and Marvel vs. Capcom 3. There will be a $5 venue fee and then a $5 entry fee for each tournament participants wish to compete in, with the pot being divided in a 70/20/10 split. The tournaments are set to begin at 7 p.m. For more information, visit the team’s Facebook page.

And even if you can’t make it, you can still catch all the crazy action, as Team Hazmat plans to stream all the tournaments on their channel.
