    Are you telling me a 5 year old kid could play better on this game than you could? Gee. Did you watch this kid play, and what was his strategy?

    I remember this game being wheeled into Orbit 5 on George St in the mid 80s. This game really takes some thinking on what to do and how to do it. A very strange game it was and most gamers first time that I saw playing this game lasted only for a couple of minutes, if that max!

    Beware the 5 year old.


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

    That kid could play this game better that any of us there at the time. We all watched him play. At the time Jackler (the Jungler clone) was 20c a game and the other game they had (Mr Do) was 40c a game. It was a case of wait and watch, play Mr Do and only get half as many games unless you got a diamond or go to Timezone which was about a 15-20 minute walk. As for strategies it was 1983 and I was 11-12. The thought of strategies didn't even cross my mind. No idea what settings the game was on either. I knew nothing about these things at the time. I just played games and whatever happened happened
