    that sucks.

    If it's just a matter of funds, let us know and we'll see what we can do.

    G'day John. After enjoying the wonderful fun that was the "Battle of the Arcades", I'm seriously looking into the possibility of coming up to Netherworld for this event. I've got to see it all live for myself! Thus, I'd love to hear more about your accommodation ideas - I was initially just going to go for a nearby backpackers or YHA, but if there's something like an "Aussie Arcade B&B" that'd be great!

    I'm also keen to know more about any of other smaller competitions that might be going on over the weekend.

    PM Sent.

    Anyone else looking for possible accommodation help, send me a friend request on FB - my name is John McNeill for those who don't know and I'll invite you to a private accommodation group.

    Decided to put in a solid effort this weekend, played 8 games so far, scored over 1.7 million points in those games and increased my PB to 498,600 - should have been a 500k game if not for a stupid death on 13-5.

    Just under 4 months to go, how is everyone else progressing? Come on, let's start undermining each others confidence

    IF (and it's a big if) I can make it up for this I'll be mainly drinking and socializing and probably won't embarrass myself by showing my lack of DK skills. Low 100K on a good day (203K arcade PB a long time ago) is not anywhere near good enough for a Kong Off

    Make sure you're booked to hang around for the Monday too if you come, that is a high scores day, play whatever when the bar is shut. NW now has an original Wonderboy, though the High Scores on this are pretty healthy now if you want your name on the blackboard. Pelly is talking about possibly bringing his Stern Turtles board, can't remember if you like that game or not. Pretty much most guys on the Monday will be setting scores for submission to Twin Galaxies on original hardware.


    I know you've got friends in Brisbane, but feel free to hit me up if you're in need of finding accomodation for the weekend too.
