Cool, I’m happy to see this, it was on my short list of noms but didn’t make my final 5

I didn't even think about Track and Field, I know Fly and @kernzy are masters at this game.

Hi everyone, just posting this again to be sure. I remember at the arcades in the 80s, gamers used to bring hard plastic coin holders, and then move them crazily over the buttons for more speed. It destroyed the buttons and ruined the game for others.

Spot on.

I forgot the Bic lighter, they used that on T&F and Hypersports in the arcades as well. And even further back than the 80s ...

I think this game was in the last MGL I participated in. Always loved playing this, not sure if I'll find time for a game but I'll try.

 

Let me read this right. You can't find time for love.

I suggest that maybe you should enjoy life more, and do what you love. That includes playing this game right now ... LOL.

Too old, too slow. Getting this one out of the way 1st off. May come back to it later but without a joystick to waggle on this game I'm screwed. 

For those who care about stats:

100M: 10.64

Long Jump: 7.45

Javelin: 73.82

110M Hurdles: 13.87 (way to slow)

Hammer Throw: 95.43 (the only halfway decent event in this run)

High Jump: 2.42

Not much to see here really

I like all of your stats. But come on, too old too slow? Since when?

How'd you beat so many of your old TG scores recently, with better scores? 

More like the older you get, the better (and wiser you get). Yes you are wise guy Robert ... 😆

Since the fingers stopped moving as fast as they used to. That's when. 😁

Some of those old TG scores were a lot easier to beat than others. Then there's some that I've been grinding away at for weeks now on and off with no success. I'll keep at it with them when I can and the same applies with this game. For what it's worth I've got an 80K+ score over there from an old MAME Decathlon that needs to be beaten.

 

Older but wiser? In my case sometimes it's more like Older Budweiser 🍺

Will have to break out my Hotrod for this one. Arcade buttons is much better than tiny keyboard buttons. lol Should be able to get in the high 80k range. Possibly low 90's if I push myself.

Excellent to see you gaming again. As you are a former MGL Champion, I was sure you were still playing. Good stuff and a good starting score!
