    Sorry guys. I think I'm going to have to bounce out first because we had stuff planned. Hopefully something is planned soon and I can come to that.

      No worries! This line has been pretty crazy. We'll do something else soon. :-)

    Hukilau (hawaiian food) is close to this Best Buy. If anyone is interested afterwards, we can meetup there for lunch!

    2 · June 13, 2014

    • Jennifer G.

      Let's definitely do lunch! I'm going to be starving by the end of this.

      YESS! YESS!

  • Best

    I'm inside the store. Looks like they are giving mario kart flags and only 1 system playing plus a set of 3ds games

    June 14, 2014

    • Jennifer G.

      Have you seen how they're handling preorders at this one?

      June 14, 2014

  • Jennifer G.

    Belay that... The line moved. I'm next to the shutter left of City Dental sign.

    June 14, 2014

  • Jennifer G.

    A few of us are at the top of the stairs where the live is being funneled. Mario Kart is happening!

    June 14, 2014

  • Dylan L

    I'm right where the line is for people playing Smash

    June 14, 2014

  • Armani

    This is my late RSVP notice

    June 14, 2014

  • Adam K

    Hi all, I'll be there in about an hour ish (depends on parking/traffic), but Jennifer can help lead the group!

    June 14, 2014

  • Jennifer G.

    To get to Best Buy: From the back, look for Best Buy sign and go upstairs. From in from of Target main entrance, go up stairs on right.

    June 14, 2014

  • Jennifer G.

    I'm wearing a sign! Near end of line ATM.

    June 14, 2014

  • Tony

    I just arrived. Where's the front to door???

    June 14, 2014

    • Adam K

      Its around the back of the building

      June 14, 2014

    • Adam K

      Hows the parking lol

      June 14, 2014

  • Tony

    Tons of parking in the lot

    June 14, 2014

  • Adam K

    Ugh... missed my alarm ._. Can someone tell me how parking is? Was going to take bart but I'll drive there if needed

    June 14, 2014

  • Dylan L

    I might be a little late. IDK how many people will be here so who knows if I can find you.

    June 14, 2014

  • Tony

    On my way. Definitely not early enough.

    June 14, 2014

  • Best

    I'm here already. About 40 people ahead of me. I'm wearing a white t-shirt and a black a's hat

    June 14, 2014

  • Jennifer C.

    I tried to go to the Best Buy Smash Fest in San Jose on Wednesday and it was insanely crowded. I can only expect that San Francisco will be worse. I'm gonna sit this one out, but I think if you're going you'd best get there early!

    1 · June 13, 2014

    • Adam K

      I think someone earlier mentioned that preorder is actually short, just a wait in line to play was long.

      June 14, 2014

    • kevin d

      You don't need to wait in line to preorder. Just go to any register DURING the event time window of 12-6 (whenever it ends). The date and time stamp proves that u preordered the game in order to get the coin.

      June 14, 2014

  • Adam K

    Hi All,

    The plan is to try to meetup at 11AM and line up. If you have a 3DS, bring it along! we can game in line while we wait. If you don't have it already, download the Meetup app! it'll make communication easier once you arrive. I don't know what I will be wearing, but I'll let everyone know here. Talk in the comments will pick up tomorrow. Sorry, for these events, it is a little tougher unless everyone is punctual. Also, you are free to join the line earlier, but I was thinking because we go 4 at a time, we can kindly ask our neighbors if it's okay for 3 friends to join in the line ;).

    June 14, 2014

  • Hank K.

    How will we find each other in line? I'm new, so I have no idea how to identify any of you.

    June 13, 2014

  • Clark K.

    Yeah, this meetup is going to fail miserably without pinpoint articulation because the nature of the event includes a line and hundreds of other people.

    June 13, 2014

    • Jennifer G.

      I'm sure we won't be able to save spots in line, but I'm going to bring some sort of small sign. I'm actually coming more for the meetup and the preorder than getting to play, so if anyone who feels the same wants to walk up and down the line, we could do some Mario Kart sessions at different points to attract attention and give folks something to do.

      June 13, 2014

    • Adam K

      Truth is we may not be able to play, but weathers nice tomorrow and we can hang out with other smash fans there. Im changing the time to start at 11 to meetup. We can line up at that point.

      June 13, 2014

  • Best

    So I heard that you no longer have to be one of the first 70 people to get the coin. Only if you pre-order it at one of the smashfest events. This makes my life much less stressful :-D

      I told u guys so . My friend who is a Nintendo rep told me this info

      June 13, 2014

    • Best

      my bad kevin. I didn't know you heard from a Nintendo rep.

      June 13, 2014

  • Clark K.

    Yeah, got there at around 1 pm and was around 30th in line. Took about an hour to get in and out of the store at that position. When I got out, the line had not shrunk at all; I can't imagine what it will be like on Saturday.

    June 11, 2014

    • Adam K

      Nice, thanks for taking one for the team lol. I'm going to try to be there at around 10, but I'll probably be there closer to 11:30

      June 11, 2014

    • kevin d

      adam- you probably wanna be there super early-meaning 600 am early to get in front of the line. unless the nintendo reps allow only one round of SSB play. it's gonna be crazy saturday!

      June 11, 2014

  • Adam K

    A commentary on the smashfest if anyone wants some impressions: http://youtu.be/T_5Go3qoZhI

    June 11, 2014

  • Best

    So what time are we meeting on Saturday? I'm gonna get there around 10 or so with my gf. We're just gonna stand in line

    June 11, 2014

    • Adam K

      I was hoping 11:30 is a good enough time, but maybe we should meet at 10? lol

      June 11, 2014

  • kevin d

    Line goes outside the store. There's another line inside. So far only moved 10 feet this past hour. The ppl in front were here at 600am. U could just walk up to the register to preorder your game guaranteeing u the coin.

    June 11, 2014

    • Adam K

      Lol nice. Probably better just to watch and hang out

      1 · June 11, 2014

  • Clark K.

    Awesome, so I'm going to pin a small printout of the SF Bay Area Nintendo Network picture on the top left and stick it on my tote bag. Chat me up if you see me; will be wearing white hoodie if that helps more.

    June 11, 2014

    • kevin d

      at the SF Geary event today?

      June 11, 2014

    • kevin d

      ill be at the SF Geary BB wearing a grey SF Giants hoodie zip up with a Nintendo shirt underneath.

      June 11, 2014

  • Hank K.

    Wait, what's tomorrow?

    June 10, 2014

    • Clark K.

      We can totally meet-up and stay together, play on our 3DS'es as we wait in line and chat; but no formal meeting.

      June 11, 2014

    • Hank K.

      All right. I'll be there.

    I -might- go today but will definitely go on Saturday :)

    June 11, 2014

  • Adam K

    Nothing planned but feel free to discuss here. Might go to san jose one

    June 11, 2014

  • kevin d

    i'll plan to be there by 300pm to scope out the line. taking BART there and depending on how long the wait takes to play the game might leave for the Giants game after.

    June 10, 2014

  • Clark K.

    For everyone going tomorrow, how do you want to meet up and when?

    June 10, 2014

  • kevin d

    i'm going tomorrow. i heard everyone gets the coin when you preorder. u get it when u pick up the game

    June 10, 2014

    • Best

      Naw, you get the coin if you are one of the first 70 to preorder the game. I have work tomorrow, so let me know what the line looks like so I can plan accordingly for saturday! :-D

      June 10, 2014

  • Jacob M.

    I think I'll be there tomorrow and would be happy to meet others there.

    June 10, 2014

  • kevin d

    wouldn't we having a discussion while waiting in line =)

    June 9, 2014

    • kevin d

      i realized that you made the event on saturday. i'm busy that day too. i was going to the wednesday one regardless.

      1 · June 10, 2014

    • Clark K.

      I'm going tomorrow too but I'm heading in both days

      June 10, 2014

  • Best

    I want to get the coin! How early do you expect I'dhave to get there to get the coin?

    June 10, 2014

    • Adam K

      First... 70 people? Prob line up 30 mins before

      June 10, 2014

  • Adam K

    Would anyone be interested after the event to meet for lunch? I know it would be kind of late. Also , E3 discussions!

    June 5, 2014

  • Jacob M.

    Sadly, I have a prior engagement.

    June 1, 2014

  • Jennifer G.

    Didn't realize they'd finalized their list of stores! I'm in, whichever one we want to gather at. :-)

    June 1, 2014

  • Hank K.

    It it's the Geary one, I'm in.

    June 1, 2014

  • kevin d

    i'll most likely go to the SF one. SJ is pretty far

    May 31, 2014

    • Adam K

      Also San Jose! HMMMM...

      May 27, 2014

    • Adam K

      Done. Setting even for Best Buy in GEARY

      June 1, 2014

  • Jennifer G.

    Definite interest! They also demoed a bunch of stuff for E3 at the Best Buy in Emeryville last year, so we might even be able to have multiple E3 events. :)

    May 3, 2014

  • Clark K.

    We don't even know which Best Buys, if any, nearby...

    April 29, 2014

    • Adam K

      If they had it like last year, they'll have one close by ;)
