It was so nice to be able to register for this site without having to jump through a hundred hoops, like some other sites.

I'm a D.K. arcade machine owner and player. Got the arcade itch again after watching King of Kong (like many, I imagine). I've gotten away a bit from my push to better my high score on D.K. Perhaps posting on this site will be the nudge I need to start up again.

Glad to see you've joined us, Jason.  As I recall, you briefly held the DK Level 1-1 record back in 2011.   ;)

LOL!  Yes, thanks to Vincent, I briefly held the 'record'!  I didn't think anyone really noticed this fiasco perpetrated by 'The Canadian'.  As Vince once said, "Jason Nugent always has a plan."  Apparently, that plan has included avoiding DK for a year. ;)

A dedicated DK forum,Awesome!!!  I just registered today after discovering the forum last week. I've been reading a lot of the strategy posts. I originally got the DK bug from King of Kong. After first seeing the movie I immediately started playing it  on an emulator on my pc but it just wasn't the same and I couldn't afford to buy a DK cabinet. So over the years I haven't played it much but about 5 months ago I decided to build my own cabinet and 3 months after that I finished building the cabinet. It is ran on mame but now I have the arcade/joystick cabinet experience so I am very happy. Since I finished the cabinet I have been playing it quite a bit. I am only at 88,000 but plan on getting a kill screen someday and maybe even the record many many moons down the road.

DK personal best - 164,000
