I was talking with Joey Springer tonight (Sat) and he told me hasn't played in a year (he had a kid last year). And he finished third in qual! Super nice guy. Hope he does well in the finals tomorrow (er... today I mean).

If any of you are still reading this thread... I'll be doing another fun casual tournament tomorrow. Probably a 1-handed. I'm going to see if Marco will let me use their Kiss, otherwise I'll find a good EM.

I have one more KISS translite to give away, as well as a limited edition (30/100) Alice in Wonderland print from ZombieYeti, and 2 passes to the Cal Academy of Sciences "Evening" events (read: booze). And maybe I can finagle some other goodies.

I'll post the time on the big events board in the registration area, and on the machine itself once I know I'm not conflicting with other events, as well as announce it over the loudspeaker an hour in advance. Shooting for some time like 3, 4, or 5 PM.

party on

Oh, and a small brag: I got 200k on Spy Hunter on my second game, just 50k short of high score. Not bad since I haven't played more than probably five games of it since 1985 (they became very rare, and often broken when you can find them). It was also a little weird playing in sit-down cab.

I had a little crowd gathered around, and maxed out extra lives without losing any. Started choking it up around 150k and I don't remember the weapons patterns past the fourth or 5th transition which is pretty key. Pretty cool that the very first video game I fell in love with which got me into arcade gaming in general was a George Gomez creation!

Gonna take another crack at the 250k high score tomorrow.
