    They have plenty of cabs/pins to play on as well if DK isn't your thing
    This, I'm terrible at DK but had a blast staying with the lads and playing other games. The beers at Netherworld are awesome. Great time to be had by all

    I have played DK for years and only noticed today that the default score table has three scores that end in 50. These are 7650, 5950 and 5050.

    All of the scoring in DK is in multiples of 100 so none of these scores are possible.

    Does anyone know why this is?

    After playing this for a week I feel like I'm getting a bit of consistency in my games.

    Had a few games at 200k+ this week and I think I'm learning a bit about the game.

    Lots of reading, a bit of Twitch viewing, some tips from @Barra and a few hours play this week have all helped.

    I think the biggest difference was changing my thinking from where I was dying to why I was dying. I was playing the same over and over and expecting a different result. A new way of thinking is definitely helping.

    I hope to be able to put a bit more time into this and hit a new PB soon.

    Open the door carefully: things are not as they seem! With a pinball that isn't, flippers that aren't, and a clock that's not, keep telling yourself it's only a game

    Congrats!!

    Yes a big part of DK is understanding WHY you died. Watch your games back and ask yourself, "What could I have done differently there?". If your answer is "nothing, there was no way out", ask questions because 99% of the time there was something you shouldn't have done that put you in that situation. It may be a very simple thing like how the conveyor works or more complex such as freezer behavior
    You'll learn a lot quicker if you figure out what you could/should have done differently, instead of doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results!

    Best of luck!

    Nice work BRB.

    You're approaching my PB very quickly, I better start playing again.

    Maybe we should run another AA Kong Off prior to the Netherworld Kong Off in November? I need every encouragement to play, I just can't force myself to play otherwise.
