General Donkey Kong Discussion / Re: ALLEN OFF 2017 SCOREBOARD

Mr Brian seems to not like being pushed into the comp, so I doubt there would be a third after he threw in the towel early this time round for that reason.

Donkey Kong High Score Lists / Re: Score Submissions
« Last post by dnickolas on Today at 09:34:24 PM »
OK here's another run. Also not great but it's a "low pace" run a bit deeper. About 650k, level 15 or 16, this time on wolfmame 193 (apparently that's the new one - I upgraded both machines to that now). Hopefully this one is better than the 179 I used last time. A 450k man is the best part of this.

Not even top 100. Boo.

The Kong-Off / Re: Official Kong-Off 6 Format and Invitee List

$20 per quarter drop????? Are you guys insane? A 3 day pass to get in to the Arcade Expo is already $120, which includes "freeplay on all 1,100 machines". Are the wildcard machines not included in this?

I could see maybe $20, max, to get on the rotation list for the wildcard machines.

I didn't know there were wildcard machines? And how can it possibly be free play on 1100 machines when some are reserved? I'm just confused. How would a rotation list work? Even a bad game can take like an hour...

If each person brings 1 or 2 kong-related items we could hold a raffle with the proceeds going towards the running of the event/recouping some of the costs incurred by Richie.

Hey Jeff, and the rest of the DK community.
Thekongoff.com is still a work in progress, as I was asking for player updates Jeff informed me that only 5 top 12 players have officially signed up. (Was Sean from Florida one of the 5?)  ( I really do not want to go live with the site until the player profiles are exciting and a plenty.) I saw that Estel Goffinett just put up a million plus game. Give me a call when you can Jeff, Feeling a tad bummed that the website release was being delayed by contestant enthusiasm, I feel it's time to  toss out this idea. If the usual players do not confirm with say a few weeks, We should offer up their spots to players such as Andrew Barrow, Estel Goffinett, Ken House and other extremely active Donkey Kong Players. The Australian Kong off at The Netherworld arcade allowed anyone to participate. It made it very interesting. If our champions Hank Chien, Dean Saglio, Vincent Lemay Jeff Wilms, Steve Wiltshire Mark Keil and all the other regulars cannot commit by a fair cut off date lets throw a monkey wrench in and give the event to the players who most appreciate it. Just an idea. If your name was not mentioned do not feel slighted. this post was fueled by emotion and straight off the top of my head. Opinions? Jeff, please give me a call after this post settles in a bit. Thanks guys

Or have a couple cabs open for open players. $20 per quarter drop to fund the prize pool and event.

Then people like me who have big egos with nothing to back it up yet can throw money down and compete.

I think this is a fantastic idea! Iíll throw $20 in Just to compete!!

I have one of the biggest NYC digital media companies working on spreading the word OUTSIDE of our local community. I would love to bring a whole new breed of competitors to the fold. It is very disconcerting hearing over and over again how the Kong Off should be retired and we should focus on a new game. Imagine a whole new wave of players coming in to jump start the Renaissance., This event has literally no $ behind it. Donations are extremely welcomed richie@richieknucklez.com Putting an epic event together {having always going out of pocket} has left me in an extreme stress situation. I'm sorry if I am not coming across as happy as I used to be. ANYBODY feel free to contact me by text at 908.797.7901. I need help , $ and psychological evaluation. lol

Dude forget that nonsense about retiring it and a new game. That's just hateraid! :D - Seriously Ive got some major stuff going on but always ready to help out.

How much money are we talking here? I have zero sense what these events cost.
