So I thought I would come up with an idea to get my kids and my wife and everyone playing my machines during this Covid lockdown. I created a one-week tournament on my Game of Thrones Pro and told my family that they could have as many practice games as they want but can only use $10 of tournament play. Each tournament game costing one dollar.

Everyone in the family has $10. I’m putting up the cash prize at the end of the week.

My wife and kids aren’t generally overly interested in my machines but they have been putting in some practice games in the spirit of the fun.

However I’ve now started the tournament twice and each day I shut off my machines and turn them on the next day and the tournament is blown out and gone. I’ve also noticed that when I start a new tournament it defaults back to a 2015 date. Can anyone help me with this? Surely to God you don’t have to leave your machine on during the entire length of the tournament

Do you lose all your settings and high scores?

High scores and stuff are staying but the game clock keeps going back to 2015 when I turn it off.

Gotcha! Well appreciate you reaching out. It’s weird. Wonder if it’s a code issue. Settings are fine, high scores are fine.
