It's a scientific fact that the best way to get over a holiday hangover is to pick up an enormous, chainsaw-equipped machine gun and mow down a few of your closest friends. And you're in luck. SFX360 and GameWars are joining forces to destroy the post-holiday blues with a Gears of War 2 tournament at GameWorks in the Sawgrass Mills Mall. Featuring the latest in the series of over-the-top Gears of War action games, this tourney is a single-elimination, two-on-two match with Major League Gaming rules. It costs $20 per team to register, with a $200 guaranteed cash prize for the top combatants. If Gears of War 2 isn't your game, there is also a two-on-two Halo 3 tournament with the same rules and cash payout.
Find GameWorks at 2608 Sawgrass Mills Circle, No. 1303, in Sunrise. Registration begins at 7 p.m., and the tournament runs from 8 p.m. to midnight. Call 786-303-1536, or visit sfx-360.com.
