As followers of the Playcast and loyal members of our site playthroughs know, December is a fun month on the site where we typically play a few titles and compete against each other for high scores or fastest times.  In the spirit of this competition, the Playcast has decided to host a video gaming golf tournament in December of 2018.  

But wait a minute Banana, December is still 6 months away!  Why the early notice? Well Timmy, this year is going to be a little different in terms of competing for high scores (well...low scores, this is golf after all).  December 2018's competition will be a team event!  Participants will be placed on a team with 3-4 other members where you and your teammates will vie for the overall lowest total score during the month. Teams will be randomly drawn in early November and play will of course begin on December 1st.  We will dedicate 10 days to each of the three games and determine the winner by the lowest overall team score.  There will be NO Battle Royale days this year. And yes, each member of the winning team will get a prize!

In an effort to let participants sign up and get in the most practice time possible, we are engaging with site members now.  We are also interested in putting together a list of three titles to play across retro and modern consoles, so put in your suggestions now! With your suggestions keep in mind that you should try to pick games for systems that the majority of our members would own and the games should be on the cheaper side. As usual, we would like to keep the total game cost under $30 if possible (maybe even lower).  Once we have a good list of games, we can put them to a vote.

GET READY TO SWING AWAY!

First off, I'm in.

I think Wii Sports with the motion controls would throw a nice wrench in to things and could really shake up some results. Or even Wii Sports Resort golf so you could use the Wii Motion Plus.

Toadstool Tour is my favorite Mario Golf game, so I'm all about playing that one. I think I still have my old save with everything unlocked.

I also had a ton of fun with CyberTiger on the N64, but I'm going to guess it's not one that a lot of people own. Probably pretty cheap, but I'd rather play Toadstool Tour than CyberTiger as well.

Surprisingly, Toadstool Tour is around $10-$12 and would be a cheaper Mario title if people were interested in going that route. CyberTiger goes from $8-$12 it seems for N64, but the game sellers for about half that price on the PS1.  I think any of these titles would work. I don't expect that people would own all of these titles, but keeping all three games under budget and with the competition beginning in December, I don't see much of an issue.

I'm totally in.

Neo turf masters is out on practically everything (switch is the newest at 9$).

The PGA golf games for Genesis were also pretty spectacular.

We could also try one of the myriad of mini golf games out there.

Love Turf Masters, but I will have to look more into the availability and cost. I know it's part of some collections, but looking into those I found that they were $20-$25 a pop....  However, I love this game, GrayGhost loves this game, and if there is enough interest from everyone, we can make it happen.

Yeah.....no mini golf

I'm so up for this. It sounds like a blast. If Kirby's Dream Course counts that would get my vote. One of my favorite golf type games.

Lots of great suggestions so far and the only one I havn't personally played so far is Cyber Tiger so where ever we end up I think I'll be happy. Should probably add just a good old Tiger Woods games to the list also. Very affordable, cross platform availability and pretty decent golf sims too.

As much positive stuff as I've heard about Neo Turf Masters, and given its appearance on a ton of compilations at this point, I'd say that almost seems like a no-brainer. I should probably check out Toadstool Tour, because I suspect it would be utterly charming.

So you in FRO? You don't have to answer, I already put you down. Looks like we have at least two groups of three so far.

If anyone else knows that they will be interested in participating in this tournament in December, let me know.  I plan on narrowing a game list down soon with participants and determining what our three games are by early July.  Thanks!

I'll throw my clubs on the green, why not.  I live the idea of Kirbys dream course, but can I suggest a less than $5 game? Outlaw Golf.  Fun to play and ridiculous in its premise.

Awesome man! I'll sign you in at the RFG Club House. Unfortunately, we are in the process of voting right now on most of the games that we already recommended. We should have our three games picked by next week, so follow this thread and stay tuned so that you can practice before December.

Game picks are in and listed in the initial post.  Team draws and course selections for each game to be announced in November, so start practicing!

Okay, so I need to track down Toadstool Tour, and check my SNK compilations, and see if I have Neo Turf Masters already. If not, to the Switch eShop!
