Is this the Waginator?  I forget if you've kill screened DK already or is your high score more like 500k or so?

With your generally awesome CAG skills, if you already have a kill screen on this game and you play one serious game every day I predict you'll hit a million in less than 6 weeks.  Maybe even much faster.  Keep us posted!

Yeah I ks'd it last month (ironically on your Kong Off 1 machine, which was borrowed from me for KO1), haven't played a game since as I threw a DK Jr PCB in it for BOTA2 practice.  I've never played with the intent of getting 1m before but I have trolled enough streams to have a general idea.  I plan on playing every game through to the end in order to keep the stats normalized to some capacity in terms of how many games played, scores, etc.  Should be a fun exercise.

Good luck, Steve, and thank you for weaving a couple of Grateful Dead references into this blog's subject line:
  • "What a long, strange trip it's been"  (Truckin')
  • "Steal your face right off your head"  (He's Gone)
You mentioned that the journey begins in April.  I'm guessing that next month will be largely devoted to BOTA-2 and/or March Madness.  Am I even close?

Yes sir.  BOTA2 the weekend of the 9th, Barcade Brooklyn Williams tourney the weekend of the 16th.  Figured then I'd just round up to April at that point.

Once April rolls around, perhaps you'll be using this as your mantra:

"My time coming, any day..."

Ha.  When Corky came over to the East Coast for the Phish shows last Dec and we all met up at Barcade, that song was playing during his Centipede game.  I thought it was a good sign for him.

I guess I better get my KS in before April so I can make the push for the 1m. Should have had it in the wildcard rematch 2 tournament but made a few mistakes and died just over 700k. I might start getting more aggressive on hitting kill screen then going for the 1m but it seems like 1.1m is the new 1m. Lol.

Come along...won't you?


The journey begins in a matter of days!  Does this kick off on 04/01, or do you have another start date planned?

I've been considering a similar, but less ambitious DK pursuit, which I briefly describe here:

http://donkeykongforum.com/index.php?topic=178.msg2543#msg2543

Just wondering, will you be streaming any of your games?  If so, I'll definitely be there.

Also, I imagine you've invited the governor to stop by for the ceremonial first coin drop.  Will he be there, or is he already committed to something silly and inconsequential, like MLB Opening Day?

Good luck!  The million (aka "The Big M") is yours for the taking.

Thanks man, I don't think I'll stream unless I get my justin.tv app on my phone figured out as to why it is not starting (even tried re-installing), might be time for a new phone.

I'll play whenever I have time but I'll try to definitely start around April 1st or so but the Cards opening day will eat into some time (and a lot of it in the future).

I'm going to do my best to get my first game in tonight.  Work has been getting in the way ;D

I'm down to gaming on Friday nights only at this point but hopefully I'll get back into it more soon.
