Hello! I had a lot of fun hosting the Halloween CV tournament, so I thought I'd do it again! This time we'll be playing the next game in the series, Castlevania II: Simon's Quest! We'll use the any% ruleset for the NES version of the game.

Wait a second, isn't CV 2 a game with insanely huge amount of RNG that makes it miserable to race? That's right, but Canight has created a patch that will guarantee heart drops and remove the heart penalty during game over. This should make the lizard man grind at the beginning and the blob boost much less variance-inducing. Head over to the discord via the link above to get a copy of the ROM.

I'll broadcast the tournament over at my channel at During this time, viewers can donate to the prize pool. Half of the pool will be donated to The Trevor Project (a prize for them!) and the other half will go to the players. How many places we'll pay out will be determined by the # of entrants. It will probably be 70% for 1st and 30% for 2nd, unless we get 8 or more players, then we'll pay out to more places.
