Well folks, it’s that time once again! Yep, as the title suggests, we’re now planning our Summer 2024 Cross Community Mario Kart tournament here at Gaming Reinvented, where even more players will compete against each other for a $150 grand prize!

And if you want to discuss the event (or practice with other players), that’s possible over on our Discord server. Have fun folks!


As is standard here at Gaming Reinvented, here are some FAQs for would be tournament participants. For the most part, they’re the same as in every other event so far.

How can I enter?

Fill in the form linked on this page, then join the Gaming Reinvented Discord server.

Why do I need to fill out the form?

So we know who’s who, and hence can distribute the prize to the winner.

Why are you hosting a tournament now?

Because as far as we can tell, there are no events scheduled for that date. Nintendo has no official events lined up, our affiliates and associated communities have no events lined up, and we need a bit more excitement after a fairly slow 2024.

What’s the best character/kart combo here?

From what we’ve seen, the current meta is Yoshi/Birdo/Peach/Daisy/Peachette on the Teddy Buggy or Cat Cruiser with the Roller Wheels and Cloud/Paper/Flower/Parachute glider.

Will that change anytime soon?

Given the Booster Course Pass is now done and dusted, probably not.

Do I need to own the Booster Course Pass?

No. In fact, the game is generous enough to let you pick those tracks if people with the pass are in the same room as you.

What happens if there’s a draw?

Usually a sudden death race between the affected parties. This happens regardless of whether it’s more than 12 people qualifying for the finals, or more than 1 person winning the whole thing.

Are there any character or kart restrictions here?

No, feel free to choose any combo you like.

Anything that’s banned outright?

Cheating obviously. Anyone who modifies the game to give themselves an unfair advantage will get disqualified.

If you’re talking about in game glitches or shortcuts, well there’s nothing to ban there. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe doesn’t have any ultra shortcuts as far as we know, and any glitches that do exist are entirely detrimental to the affected player (like the infamous Ninja Hideaway softlock).

Can I record or livestream the tournament?

Hell yeah! We welcome any and all coverage on sites like YouTube, Twitch, etc.

How do the winners receive their prizes?

Usually via PayPal, though other arrangements can be made if you can’t accept money that way.

Can my community participate in this event?

Sure! Just send us a link, and we’ll add you to the list of participating communities.
