Hey Mitch,

So I'm ready to make some Burger Time attempts and finally pay off my long outstanding debt to you.  I'll stream all of my attempts -- if you really want to watch someone play this pile -- just let me know what time is best.

Woohoo!  <Allen>

Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday at almost any time works well for me to watch if you give me a heads up. However, you don't have to wait around for me to stream. If I recall correctly, the bet was just for you to get 1M+. As soon as you get that you're free to immediately shut her down and consider your end of the deal completed ;D . Just save the highlight and I can at least watch that.  <popcorn>

I dids it.  Debt repaid with 173% interest.  And never again.  Thanks for your patience, sir Mitch.

My patterns really broke down around board 6 of the second loop, and it was a bloodbath.

Went to Derek Sorrells' 2nd annual CAG party in Wichita this past weekend. I also stopped by the Up Down in Kansas City on the way there and the one in Des Moines on the way back home. While in KC I upped my hammer throw best on T&F to 99.43 (I also got several 99.00 throws as well while in Des Moines). While at Derek's I got hooked on 10 Yard Fight. I eventually ended up with a score of 74,680. While in Des Moines I set a couple of their arcade's records. One of them was a 309,000 attempt of the one-man variation of T&F (I died on hurdles).

Been playing so Hyper Sports. Very fun game. I'm getting all the events down well except for really the trampoline/flips event. Just can't seem to get 9.40+ consistently, so I almost always die on the third loop of the events. So frustrating. Gonna update my PBs on the main post when I have time.

Edit: As best as I can remember, these are my current bests... I'll have to double-check and confirm them:

Swimming: 47.75s (no-breathing trick), 55.04 (with breathing)
Skeet: 12200 points
Flips: 9.40/10
Lifting: 195lb x 2=390lbs
Triple Jump: 16.84m
Pole Vault: 8.90m

Up Down just got two Cruis'n World sit-down cabs. Gonna start collecting times for that one now.

One of the things that helps get a better score on the Gymnastics vault is first having a fair vault. Any vault after a foul will score lower. Any fair vault will do, even the 3k bonus vault. Its similar to trying to get a long throw on T&F  javelin.  Any throw after a foul is lower. Any after a fair throw is longer. Even after the 1k bonus.

Over the next two days I will be participating in the national Killer Queen (a 5v5 arcade game that is kinda a mix of Joust and Mario Bros) tournament hosted at Up Down bar and arcade where I work. I believe there is something like 52 teams and about 300 people that have traveled from all around the country to compete in the tournament. My team's name is 10,000 Scrapes and I expect we'll be kinda a middle-of-the-road team since we put ourselves together only a few weeks ago, but it promises to be a fun time. I'm not sure if/where everything will be streamed yet, but if it is I'm sure it'll pop up on twitch if you search for "Killer Queen". Here's some info on the event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1916324101960405/

We recently got Joust and Q*bert at Up Down, so I'm getting back into those games.

On my 6th coin drop (since like 2013 when Rusty Quarter closed down, I believe) I was able to get just over 1M on Joust this evening all-the-while I was talking and explaining elements of the game to those watching. Next time I'll focus more.

I may also go for a Q*bert mini-marathon one of these days, since I'd be able to play for about 13 hours straight with the hours Up Down is open.

It has come to my attention that someone improved the best submitted time on the LA Freeway track of Cruis'n USA to 01:48.45 back in 2015. Still almost 2 seconds slower than my best time, but I just wanted to make a note for historical purposes in my blog.

Hey Mitch,

Doesn't look like you ever broke the seal on 1943 but feel free to reach out if you need any tips.
