Kirby games usually have good mini-multiplayer games and have great potential for speed runs. I personally own:

Kirby Super Star (SNES) : Megaton Punch, Quickdraw. FULL OF CLASSIC AWESOMENESS. Also any level, especially the great race, is good for speed runs
Kirby Crystal Shards (N64) : Tile destruction game, Fruit gather game, Leap frog game (The last two are somewhat lame)
Kirby's epic yarn (Wii) : Good for speed runs. fun and cute. anyone can play.
Kirby's Return to Dreamland (Wii) : Shuriken throw game (fun), Robot battle game (meh)

Some other games I own that might be good for Tourney's:

Power Stone 2 (Dreamcast) : 3-D platform fighter with a HUGE emphasis on item use. TONS O' FUN and easy to play! Highly recommended.
Sonic Adventure 2 Battle (GameCube) : Races are fun. Everything else sucks. (excluding chao since we can't really do that)
Jak X Combat racing (PS2) : Like Mario Kart, but w/ a little more emphasis on skill rather than luck.

I can provide all that we would need to play any of these games. However, my SNES hooks up via a cable cord and idk if the projector has that kind of hook up. Also, I would need a little time if you wanted any games that aren't on either the PS2 or the Wii as they are all at home.

that pretty much what i meant, that's also what happened.

anyways for rainbow road i might allow the first race in the final round, that will more likely be decided based on time constrains and the people who make it to that round

Separate the wheat from the chaff. Only people who beat Rainbow Road and the enemy AI are worthy of having fun.

Trust me, this is Creed's doing. No-one else's.

Granted, I can see the logic behind it. (If it's anything like the N64 version, it will take way too long to complete, especially with how many people are in this tourney.)

But still, don't think the entirity of SPAMM have become tiny baby men (and women) because of this.

And why aren't my quotes working?

I found a few levels in Snuggle Truck trollier than I could ever imagined... Project qTroll is being redesigned from the ground up.

That's right, even the ground is becoming more trolly.
