So Mario Kart is pretty much one of the most fun party games EVER invented.

If you deny that, then please stop reading. If you agree, and are based in Sydney, then we want you to come along to a community event being run by Nintendo to help AusGamers emerge as Mario Kart Racing King Site-type thing.

All you need to do is be over 18 years of age, happy to play Mario Kart and equally happy to trek into the city. Details are this Thursday evening in Sydney City (more specifics for those coming), from 6:30pm until 10:30pm. Free food and drinks as well as rounds upon rounds of Mario Karts from each iteration.

Prizes on the night include Nintendo 3DS' signed by the voice of Mario, Charles Martinet (he was also in David Fincher's The Game), and a grand prize of a replica Mario Kart trophy.

We need 10 people in total, so it's first in, best dressed. But please, only put your hand up if you're keen on coming. Hit us up in the Comments section below if you're keen!

Watch Nintendo's official video invite to the event embedded below.

Without giving away venue location -> if anyone on team ausgamers wants to join us for a pre-event warmup, then HeardY, myself and probably m0rphy will be DIRECTLY ACROSS THE ROAD from the venue from 5:45 sinking pints.

PM me here or natslovr at gmail to get my mobile if you are worried that "hey are you here to play mario cart?" will be mistaken for a pickup line in a DARK DINGY PUB.
