The Arkansas Special is a monthly fighting game tournament series designed to showcase some of the best talent in the region. The game listing changes every month and the list for the following month’s tournament will always appear at the bottom of the the details below so everyone will have time to prepare for their favorite game.

Every tournament will have a full ranking associated with it. This will -ONLY- take into account matches played at The Arkansas Special and is not intended to compete with any PR or other type of ranking. Players at the top of their game will be featured in promotional material and prizes will be given to those who can maintain top status in their game for an extended period of time.

Don’t see your game listed or want to do a special event like an exhibition or team tournament? Talk to the tournament organizers and we’ll see what we can do to make it happen! This is a community event run BY the community and FOR the community, so we want to do what we can to earn everyone’s support!

The Arkansas Special is run in conjunction and coordination with River Valley LAN, which is a 24-Hour LAN Party featuring many of the most fun PC games on the market. Please visit to learn about their group!
