Siskel and Kong at the Movies
« on: August 16, 2017, 05:58:51 AM »


At 1700 hours PDT I will post a link to 37 screenshots from films released during the Golden Era of arcade video games (defined by me roughly as 1978-1984,  <thefinger> everybody else).

You get a point for each movie you are the first to correctly identify by matching the film number (1-37) to the title.

For the member with the most points who does not already have one, I have a DK Forum t-shirt:



For the member with the most points who does already have the shirt, I have an Asus Chromebook:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00OD38V2E/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

(I mistakenly had one sent to me last year. I am moving and need to get rid of it. Still unopened in original Amazon shipping box.)

US members only on the Chromebook.

Game is over when all movies are identified. If I have to give hints eventually, I will.

DO NOT EDIT YOUR POSTS. IT WOULD MAKE ACCURATE SCOREKEEPING IMPOSSIBLE.

I've probably watched most of these but am horrible at this type of game.  Maybe everyone else here already has a shirt and I can win with a score of 1.

I think #36 is Hoosiers but it came out in 86.  Do the movies have to be from 78 - 84?

All correct answers are movies from 1978 to 1984.
