  • Find the iCon check-in table located in Room 201 – 204 and speak to an available Tournament Organizer about tournament times. Be prepared to sign-up for a tournament an hour before the scheduled start time.



  • The gaming tournaments hosted by Icon and the consoles available for play require a separate fee in addition to your Super Cincy Expo admission ticket. However, the Tecmo Super Bowl, the Costume and Game Competition and Arcades are included in your Super Cincy Expo admission.
    • $10 for a day entry.
    • $15 for a weekend entry.



  • Controllers will be readily available for all players entering tournaments for the weekend, but bringing your own controller is also highly encouraged. GameCube controllers, Joy-Cons, Pro Controllers, and Xbox One controllers are all accepted. A limited number of Pro Controllers and Joy-Cons will be available for check-out with an ID.


  • The below games will have tournaments throughout the weekend. If you pay for a $10 day entry, every tournament hosted that day is covered. If you have a $15 weekend entry, every tournament throughout the weekend is covered.

    • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
    • Mortal Kombat 1
    • Tekken 8
    • Street Fighter 6
    • Killer Instinct


  • Remember to keep a positive attitude and good sportsmanship during the convention. While competition is healthy, hostility is not. A friendly atmosphere fosters long-lasting friendships and fun memories. Fighting, provoking, and aggression will not be condoned.


  • It’s important to stay hydrated, healthy, and hygienic throughout the weekend. You are not the only person sharing the space–it’s for everyone! Remember to get a good night’s sleep, eat well, and wash up so everyone can be comfortable.


  • Each fighting game tournament will be double elimination. Each game will have its own set of rules that will be explained before each tournament starts. Announcements will be made prior to each tournament sign-up start, so make sure you are not late.
