The Melee Games, or TMG for short, is a national Super Smash Bros. Melee collegiate tournament series organized and founded by MattDotZeb. Various colleges form teams of 5 players and faced off against other colleges in 20 stock crew battles. In the past few years, The Melee Games has grown from a small North-East only series to a tournament series featuring colleges from all over the United States as well as Canada.


Number of Teams:

The finals for the West Coast were done at I'm Not Yelling while the finals for the East Coast as well as the grand finals were at Super Nebulous 3. The winning team from California was also notably flown out to Super Nebulous as part of a bigger donation drive.
