      Many thanks to OOO - well done the top 3. No duff games at all really (apart from Frogger ). Hope to have more time to put into the next one to see if I can get top 20 again.

      Cheers from Wales.

          My thoughts on MGL XXXII

          Space Invaders 2
          I always thought this was just a simple shooter. I enjoyed learning about the 'shotgun method', the no kill zone on the bottom row and shooting the bottom left guy last for a big bonus and a fireworks display. A great way to start the MGL.

          Rainbow Islands
          I hadn't played this before and liked the look of this straight away. Like Bubble Bobble, this game has a lot to discover and a lot to learn. I still have much to learn on this game but I was happy to smash my target of one million. This is a game that I was happy to play and will probably revisit sometime.

          10 Yard Fight
          I feel that I said (moaned) enough during the time this was played to make my feelings clear about this game. Shout out to [MENTION=5050]Jed[/MENTION] for suggesting to put my moaning efforts into learning how to play the game, I think that got me a few thousand more points.
          10/10 would not play again.

          Frogger
          I was (isn't everyone?) already familiar with Frogger and enjoyed a bash on this for a couple of weeks. I significantly improved on my PB so was happy with this selection.
          The known glitches ruin the game a bit but it's a level playing field for everyone I guess.
          littlebigredbird was pleased that a few players found Uncle Frogger.

          Asteroids
          I thought this was going to suck and would be a real drag over two weeks but it wasn't too bad. Changed my strategy a bit after watching [MENTION=18717]fok999[/MENTION] 's video and went from UFO hunting to survival mode. This game turned out to be ok but I still hate the accuracy of the little flying saucer.

          Circus Charlie
          I like Circus Charlie. I like riding the lion. I like the money bag leeching on the first level. I liked discovering the hidden money bags on the monkey level. I like that magrinder thinks the monkeys were dogs. I liked the horse level. I like that the elephant upset magrinder with its judging looks. I liked watching magrinders weird Twitch streams during this time. I like the Lego model that OOO made of Charlie. This was a fun game for me.

          Shinobi
          Ugh.. Shinobi. Had a couple of games and decided I wasn't putting myself through some more 10 Yard Fight type pain and didn't play it again. Sure that cost me some points but as a wise old judging circus elephant once said, "sometimes one has to sacrifice points ignoring Shinobi to bring inner peace and calmness to one's life'.

          Bubbles
          Another game I had never played. Didn't like it initially but it grew on me like grime in a sink. I enjoyed the debate on whether the cleaning lady was tiny in a regular sized sink or if she was a regular sized lady in a giant sink. I am going with regular size lady that had a huge mess to clean up with gigantic razor blades as hazards. I have magrinder to thank again for picking up some strategies watching him on Twitch while another of his guests did some book readings for our listening pleasure. If you don't do drugs but want to experience what it is like to be in another reality then I highly recommend joining in on magrinders Twitch broadcasts.

          Nibbler
          I have played a bit of Nibbler before. Nibbler is ok but I have no idea how anyone has the patience to play this game to over one billion points. I didn't bother looking up any patterns for this but just developed my own and achieved my 100k+ target. Ride the snake.

          Overall, a very enjoyable MGL. Congratulations to [MENTION=10227]DaLar[/MENTION] [MENTION=16264]magrinder[/MENTION] and [MENTION=9320]Barra[/MENTION] for the top three places and to everyone else for the good competition and fun times.

          Finally, a big thank you to [MENTION=9067]OOO[/MENTION] for running another successful tournament. Lots of players and lots of engagement with each game. I am looking forward to the next one.

            10/10
            wow! a perfect score for 10 yard. That's awesome!

            On another unrelated note. [MENTION=9067]OOO[/MENTION] it would be cool to have views, thoughts, and reccomendations from the winner, and best player in the AA MGL DaLar on this site where everyone could benefit from such an amazing all round gamer... Is there a language barrier or some other reason why he doesn't post scores or otherwise participate on AA ?

            Just curious, no biggie. The CAG format is a very inclusive one and very successful given the engagement of players in MGL's nowadays

              90% of my streams are me and my most loyal viewer, Shanebot. We spend the time silently grinding it out on whatever game is at hand.

              I merely play off the audience I have at any given moment. If the viewers in the channel such as bigredbird convey another reality, who am I to do anything other than just follow along for the ride?

                Another fantastic MGL thanks everyone, the entertaining and informative posts were of a high standard again and it was fun to share these cool games

                I became distracted towards the end of the MGL by Centaur II turning up and demanding my attention




                The date for the next Tassie Head 2 Head meet has been set (see sig) I have had the privilege of meeting a few of the MGL players in the past and it would be great to see them again and put to a face to other names in the MGL so consider coming along and joining in the fun.
                Winter is here and I'm still riding more than gaming, my current goal = 100,000 meters elevation gain for the year - well ahead so far

                  I've never seen one of these in the wild that I can remember. Nice. Centaur was fun too though never played 2.

                  What's the bed sheet with bloody lettering hanging behind Centaur II say? If I should not have asked this, feel free not to respond. Perhaps some things are better left unaddressed. I think it says "Mr. Do! is ***T bad."

                  I can't think of many reasons to ever leave this room.

                    Centaur II playfield is exactly the same as the original Centaur, they used the different cab because they had heaps left over from an unpopular title that sold less than expected.

                    The sheet says "Punks Not Dead" with a big anarchy symbol, left over from our daughters fancy dress teenage party years ago.

                    I would never dis the Do!

                        I thought I would wait a bit to see if anything is posted by DaLar at TG. Not yet and I agree it would be great if he provided some feedback after a great and close win at TG. I am guessing language could be a problem yet his gaming is awesome.

                        I also wanted to thank all of you in this MGL for the great communication and posts made throughout the whole tournament. I always thought there was so much talent, enthusiasm and intelligence out there that one day everyone would show it in their posts, so that is awesome. And again, without each one of you there would not be an exciting and engaging competition. You are the magic here! ... and the games of course!

                        Get ready for MGLXXXIII ... promo is up this Saturday! Then it will be hell breaking loose on the following Friday.

                        Fantastic!


                        Ask your friends to play in MGLXLII. Don't procrastinate, participate ...

                          [MENTION=9067]OOO[/MENTION] thank you again as always for organizing a great tourney.

                          Congrats to DaLar, magrinder and Barra for your awesome scores and efforts.

                          Im happy that I completed my goal I challenged myself with from the last season to get in the top 10....JUST! haha!

                          Shinobi, 10 Yard and Rainbow Islands were my favs but really enjoyed trying to master Circus Charlie...great pick!

                          Cant wait for the next season

                            Big thanks to OOO as always. Congrats to the winners, and thank you participants. I can't express enough how much I enjoy participating in the MGL. It's always interesting to see what games are picked and of course the reactions. Great competition, the banter is always helpful and obviously enjoy the humor. And of course, thanks to Mr. Do, even though you weren't in this tourney I still want to thank you. Thank you to littlebigredbird for sharing your wonderful drawings of magrinder and barra.

                            Already coming up with nominees for the next. Cheers, and see you then.
