Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the Final Round of the 2017 NA Weekly Contest Year End Tournament!
 
16 players that ranked in the top of the 2017 leaderboard fiercely competed in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd rounds and only 6 of these superhuman players qualified for the Ultimate Final Round of the Tournament. Reaching the third round, two valorous gamers came short and did not make the Final Round cut, let's congratulate them for their valuable efforts : ninjistar & Stryphos (rash of applause)

Here's the list of players competing in the Final Round :

tablew/chairs

Bea_Iank

arnpoly

Brock Landers

Gloves

Red



The Final Round we'll see these video game beasts playing their self to death in one of the most iconic game of all time : SUPER MARIO BROS.

Rules


  • 1 player only
  • 1 life only
  • 1 playthrough only.  Once you beat Bowser and save the Princess, you must stop and take a picture of your score.
  • The 1up trick is forbidden / all other turtles hoping techniques are allowed.
  • Highest score wins
  • GENRE: Action/Platformer



 
The contest ends Sunday, 11/19/17 at 11 PM NA time.  Your user name MUST be written or typed on a piece of paper and be in the picture for your score to be valid.  The entire TV screen, or computer monitor if you are playing on an emulator, MUST be in the picture for the score to be valid.  No partial screenshots will be considered or accepted.  No screenshots by hitting "print screen" on a computer will be allowed.  You must take a picture of your computer monitor.  There may be instances where this will be acceptable, but it will be at the discretion of myself and the contest organizers.  Also, the use of turbo controllers is forbidden, as well as any cheat codes, Game Genies, slow motion functions, or save states if playing on an emulator.  Also, we will only be using NTSC systems for the contests.  The use of PAL systems will NOT be allowed.


Best of luck to all participants. And Now, Ladies and Gentlemen (drum rolls)...

GAME ON!

One playthrough only? Does that mean only the first score posted by each player counts?

I can't tell if you're joking, but I think it means only one loop allowed.

No my good man, it only means you can't loop the game. Once you beat stage 8-4, your run is over.

Screw that, they should all hold their pictures till the bitter end. Give no competitor any idea where you're at

And keep in mind the grand champion will not only get a championship belt for their signature. They will also get an extra special prize from yours truly. I don't even know if there are other prizes this year.

I hope you guys appreciate that our little Kickle fucker took it upon himself to dress all well and classy for the Final Round. There's not even the sight of cock/butt around, that Kickle is Bea-proofed. What a sweet early morning surprise she'll have tomorrow, she won't have to spill her first coffee sip stumbling on new Kickle's blasphemy.

Bea is the female Tom Votava. 1:1 odds seems about right.

Each of the final 6 should get a special Kickle drawing incorporating their persona and signed by you.

Yeah basically zero chance I come out on top. But damned if I won't have some fun with it this week. I've never played the game for score, nor have I beaten it in a single life. I'll hopefully manage at least one of the two this week.

I've never seen anything so adorable! You know who it reminds me of? The person that is always standing and walking ... Rory Calhoun!

Just to confirm, it's simply highest score wins yeah? Progress irrelevant? So like if someone gets a really high score but dies on Bowser, as long as their score is higher than someone who beat Bowser they'd still win?

Indeed, you just can't shoot that Kickle when he's all cute standing up on his back legs, like a little Rory Calhoun.

Progress usually only matters when it's a low score contest.

Have there ever been any high score/progress contests?

I'm not sure what to do now that I don't have a weekly game to play! I guess I will find some other of my many projects to dig into this week   I may play along for fun, but we'll see if I am motivated to do so. I tried Pinball and that's a bit of not bad. Just a few games in and I hit around 47,000 points. Also I just noticed that this is my 1,000th post and I am probably no longer a Meka Chicken! See you on the other side...

I don't think so, but a formula like 'progress/highest score as tie breaker' is possible, in fact, if Joust was showing the wave you're in permanently on the screen I would have taken these rules.

Super Mario Bros... for high score...

I already have the blood of countless cute goombas on my hands from SMB3... now you will force me to slaughter thousands more?
HOW will I atone to my sins? All those cute, harmless goombas?

Odin Allfather, forgive me, for I will have to slaughter innocents.

Also, how is that bloody wanker Kickle alive? How many times will I have to kill him? Sharply dressed he is even more of a menace!

Anyway... I am going to ask THE most important question of all history of the contest. Can I play as Luigi?
Red Luigi is LAME!
