  • You must start at the 100m event
  • Use of turbo controllers is strongly forbidden
  • Highest score wins
  • GENRE: Sports


The contest ends Sunday, 8/12/12 at 10 PM NA time.  Your user name must 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.  Good luck everyone and have fun!

I picked up a copy of T&F from the local retro shop for $2.50 just so I could compete in this round. My Dr. Mario showing was horrendous.

I will be playing and posting a score either tonight or Saturday afternoon.

For sale/trade.  Want to trade for.

I dont own a copy sry. I only buy games I want to keep now. I did try finding a copy from several friends who own NES consoles, but no ones owns it. If it was WCTM i'd have played.

On a more serious note, I've played EarthBound today for so long, I feel all tense and mentally worn out.
Then you called your mother and felt better?

Are we allowed to use the 360 version? It's an Arcade port I think, I don't know if that makes a difference.

EDIT: Nevermind, I forgot that the NES version had entirely different events like Archery and Skeet Shooting. I may tomorrow, I'm fairly decent at Track n Field. This is where I now get destroyed.

I took the time to play one game, one rather long game. As you can see, the score freeze at 999,990, but roll once you pass skeet shooting event.

I was to busy watching the Olympics to participate in them.
That is why I will never earn gold

LOL I came in here to check out what I missed this week...looks like I could have snagged an easy 8 or 10 points to make up for my absence from the contests lately. Guess we just don't have that Olympic spirit!
