Bomberman tournaments were a regular event with my college/university friends. We comprized a board that kept score of how many Gold Bomberman victories we all achieved for the SNES version of Bomberman. One of the best multiplayer games ever, I would still play it today if my friends and I lived in the same house.
My Bomber man was coloured SILVER! My made up special move was named "Rising Thunder!" My status as a legitimate cool guy after what I just wrote, non existent.
