Next Event: march 31st

The Arkansas Special is a monthly fighting game tournament series designed to showcase some of the best talent in the region. Our events are held at Mizewell Games in Conway, AR. The game listing changes every month and features some games which will appear in every iteration of the series and some games that will appear less frequently (so as not to conflict with other events). Almost every new classical fighting game will be featured at upcoming events, so please look forward to competing with other people when those release! The game listing for the following month's tournament will always appear at the bottom of the the details below so everyone will have time to prepare for their favorite game.

Every tournament will have a full ranking associated with it. This will -ONLY- take into account matches played at The Arkansas Special and is not intended to compete with any PR or other type of ranking. Players at the top of their game will be featured in promotional material and prizes will be given to those who can maintain top status in their game for an extended period of time.
