Back in 1992, some geniuses in Japan created one of the greatest video games of all time.

Twenty years later, some local geniuses are planning a competition featuring that amazing video game here in Fayetteville.

In other words, it’s Super Mario Kart tournament time. Yeow!

The fun starts at 10 p.m. tonight (May 16) at Smoke & Barrel Tavern.

Smoke & Barrel co-owner Evan McDonald said he’s partnered with Trade Wind Games and plans to host more video game tournaments this summer and is seeking suggestions for other classic games that folks might like to play.
