The field also included some familiar faces from the Marvel scene including AB Jan (who would finish 2nd) and Rubeks.

Stone was the only one to beat Buckethead all night, dropping him first to Losers and ultimately beating him in Grand Finals after dropping the first set 0-3.

In the end, Four Wude's Akuma was too much for Nytemare Raven's Blanka, as our new champ took it 3-2 in Grand Finals. He has previously won both MK singles and MK tag (with Kensou) at Insomnia.

Soul Calibur V / June 9th, 2012
It took champion Amanda longer to drive to and from Insomnia then it did for her to slice and dice her way through a 16 man (ahem, person) field in our first ever Soul Calibur V Tournament!

Tetris / March 17th, 2012
Sean needed no luck for this St. Patrick's Day event, besting a field of 22 competitors in this single elimination tournament. His traditional method of stacking and going for Tetris proved too much for The White Bagels' intricate and delicate T-spin tactics.

Game: SSBB System: Wii Prize: $140 cash + we owe him a shirt!
Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 / December 30th, 2011
Crepe King basically came, ate Chinese food, ate pizza, kicked some ass and then probably went to Denny's to celebrate. He battled through a field of almost 30 competitors and faced our past MVC3 winner 134 in the finals. Our store still smells like Chinese food :( Game: UMVC3 System: PS3 Prize: $100 cash + a very sharp Insomnia shirt!

O.Red said it would happen...he practically begged me to listen to him. I asked him who he thought would win and he said Sean W.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 / November 19th, 2011
