Not too late at all! Atari Cup will begin the Spring Season in February, with games on opposite weeks from High Score Squad. Hopefully we'll get 9 players to start!

I guess I better get tons of games listed on my wish list for "Santa"!  I don't want to be missing a game.  This sounds like fun!

Atari Cup will feature the most loved game titles of the 8 and 16-bit era, I'm sure you have a lot of them already :)

I'll give it a try.

Might not be able to play every game since I don't use emulators on my computer, but I will help were I can.

We will list the roster of games being played for each season, well in advance of the start of the season. Atari Cup Tournament is our team play event, so it's the most sensitive to player participation. As part of a team where each player's score counts towards the team score, players need to participate in each game as not to let the team down. The games played in Atari Cup will be the most loved titles that most everybody should have access to. Think "Asteroids, Space Invaders, Super Mario Bros." etc. We will post games long enough in advance for players to be able to obtain an emulator or a copy of a game they're missing before season starts.

Well, I suppose I will have to resign my participation until I see the list of games.  :(

Exactly when will the list for the first season be posted?

Seattle Super Marios sounds good.  Because there is NO WAY I'm playing for the Seattle Super Sonics.
