Thursday Night Throwdown

A Fighting Game Community Night For All


Everyday Esports was created with the goal of creating events where gamers of all levels of skill and interest could come together and enjoy playing, together.

Our weekly fighting game tournament known as “Thursday Night Throwdown” is one these events.
The mission of this event is to provide all fighting game players with a balance of fun and competition.


We keep track of every match that occurs at TNT, so players may track their progress, and determine where they sit in the rankings.
Check out our rankings for the following games:
Street Fighter V || Tekken 7 || Dragon Ball FighterZ || Super Smash Bros. Ultimate || Guilty Gear || SoulCalibur VI

What’s happens at TNT?

Games games games.

Our top priority is to ensure that we have a high number of games available for guests to play. We are continuously expanding our number of systems and games (that’s what the $5 door fee goes towards). We will consistently have setups for a few games available for play. Each week we will communicate which games we are featuring and attempt to add new games or feature special games for people to try out. We welcome anyone who brings their own console and monitor and do not charge those individuals an entry

Keep in mind that this is a bring your own controller event (BYOC) so if you plan to play, please do bring a controller to use! From time to time there may be some extra controllers available for use, but there is no guarantee of availability.

Finally, any individual who brings a setup (game + console/pc + monitor) will not need to pay the $5 venue fee. If you come regularly, you may save some

Which Games??

Game presence will vary from week to week, recent tournament offerings included:

  • Dragonball FighterZ

  • Mortal Kombat 11

  • Tekken 7

  • Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

  • Street Fighter V

  • Samurai Shodown

We are always open to any fighting game you want to bring!

When does it happen?

See this calendar, the Thursdays with boxing gloves will have throwdowns!



We want to welcome all gamers from skilled tournament players, new players learning a game and gamers just wanting to have fun! While we will always offer a tournament for any game if we have 4 or more players who wish to participate, it will never be required.


In addition to running a tournament for any game with 4 or more players, we will ensure that any game with a tournament WILL get some stream time and be broadcast on the TNEA Twitch channel. How much time will depend on how many players are in a tournament and on the wishes of the players.

We will also offer opportunities to commentate on matches, on stream to attendees. If we have more commentators than we can accommodate we will give slots on a first come first served basis, and eventually open up signups ahead of time if necessary.

Our standard cost to enter a tournament will remain $5.00. Every single dollar collected for tournament entry will be given back to the players based on finishing as follows:

Gamer Fuel

It’s not a small thing to pay $5.00 to play some video games after getting in a car and driving across town. We want to make sure this event is worth your while. Our partnership with the Nashville Technology Council helps by giving access to our great venue but we wanted to do more. We have sought out sponsors for these events that will allow us to provide free food and drinks for all attendees. Who our sponsors are will vary from week to week, but you can count on a never ending supply of Red Bull to fuel your gaming!

You will also be able to contribute to the prize pools (for free) by entering a code on our Matcherino page each week!
The codes vary each week, so be watching our social media channels!
