Puzzle Madness for me. I never had a shot at winning, of course, but I did manage to take first place on a game I'd never played before (Chicken Shift), and manage a respectable third place behind Nick and Giro-X on Logic Pro 2, another game I'd never played before.

Unless there is an all  <pacman>-genre tourney, I suspect that this is the best I'll ever do.  :)

Probably the last DK Online Open.  Got my first CK killscreen, walked away with some cash.  Other than that, probably IGBY 2, my first tournament, where I literally killed myself for a month to make a good showing.  I think I finished 8th or 9th.  I'm still burned out from that one.

Hmmm....Might have to be the TG Fest in Banning. I choked in most other comps that I've been in when $$ was on the table.

Edit: Hehe, didn't even think of it till I saw it in this pic. All those framed certificates on the wall were from a Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2 competition that TG did. I won 6 $150 prizes and was never told why I was DQ'd on the $1000 portion even after they called and said I was the winner. I would have to go with the THPS2 TG tournament. DQ'd for being too good.  <thefinger>

I believe there is currently a $400 bounty for the first player (Brian or Allen) to reach 900k. Any guesses on who will win the bounty? I don't think there is a time limit.

The other thing around that time, another arcade (Overland Trail Arcade) was participating in the Track and Field competitions with the prizes being plastic trophies. I won that easily as I was the only one locally using the scratch technique. I still have that trophy.

Sometime in 1984, a local radio station, 104.1 KOFM did a remote at one of my local arcades (Electric Eagle) and sponsored a high score competition with the prizes being popular albums at the time. The games were Galaga, Looping (of all things), and I forget the third game...either Vanguard or Fantasy...something like that. Anyways, I won all three bagging Cyndi Lauper - She's So Unusual...Billy Joel - An Innocent Man...and Culture Club - Kissing to be Clever. I still have the albums, I think, somewhere. The radio guys wanted me to talk live on the air, but I was to chicken shit, go figure.

IGBY 2016. The first tournament where I really turned on grind mode, and I finished #10 in the individual standings. It was a nice affirmation that if I put in the effort I can be competitive in these things.

Well after snooping around I found the soc300ma fuse was blown I replaced it and fired it back on and it blew the fuse again so I couldn't be as lucky as just a bad fuse.
