    Who's it going be? ... this reminds me of the late finish for Jumping Jack ... exciting ...

    2 hours to go ...

    I might try and squeeze one more game in shortly, may even live stream it because I need to get into levels 6 & 7 and watch it back so I can work out what the hell is going on. I'm still having trouble with what appears to be overly active Sam & Slicks on the x-3 stages, 5-3, 6-3 etc. They seem more difficult to me, could this be in my head?

    Beware one and all, next time this game comes up in an MGL I am going to have the skills to marathon it

            Another 200k game, but couldn't keep it together. No time for another one, just need to wait to see what Chrisbo puts up now or if anyone else is gonna challenge at the 11th hour

            Did record it though, so I'll go back later and watch and see if I can work out what the hell I'm doing wrong.

              Nothing coming from me. Best I could manage was about 170K.

              You must have figured out a 'point jackpot' because you are only about 4 screens ahead of my best but 80K better. Well done.

                Nah no point jackpots, the game just repeats saying level 9 forever and ever. I'll have to watch back my replay, but I have had a few Q*Bert people verify that you score around 8,000 to 8,500 per board or 32,000 to 34,000 per level for every level you complete starting at 6. I think the 294k score was level 9 for the 2nd time round when I died .

                Now to get on with Bomb Jack and seeing if I can finally break 1,000,000.

                  Really? Didn't know that.

                  That makes much more sense then.

                      Pash doubles his score yesterday with 130,175 to take a really nice 4th place.
                      DKong scores 155,675 with a few hours to go (previous score 34,785) and jumps from 10th place to 3rd place …
                      Then John73 finds some magic and a well earned score of 294,470 with 4 hours to go … hits the lead and takes out his 3rd AA record (Bump n Jump and Road Fighter are the other two).
                      chrisbo played great for another 2nd place.
                      The Top 4 broke the AA record and many others learned that Q*bert really takes some getting used to …

                      Congratulations to John73 for setting a new AA record and winning Game 4.

                      Bank Panic and Bomb Jack are currently in play, Games 5 and 6 …
                      Four games completed, four to go ... half way point. I'll update the overall scoreboard later tonight.

                            For those who don't know (and I didn't know until the other day until it was posted on CAGDC) Geoff Edwards was the host of this fantastic show and he recently passed away

                            Google Starcade - plenty of episodes online and they are great to watch.

                            This is a great clip, I couldn't imagine getting my Mum on that show to play any arcade game, Q*Bert no less, I don't think she has played an arcade game in her life, couldn't even get her interested in Space Invaders on the Vic-20 30 odd years ago let alone playing a real arcade game
