    Okay, here we go! The draft order is below. Some ground rules: I won't put a time limit on the picks, but try to be as efficient as possible. I realize everyone is located all over the map and keep varied hours, so there's no expectation on my end. Consoles/handhelds/lightswitches count as one pick, TWO (2) games count as a pick, FOUR (4) manuals count as a pick. Trading of picks is allowed. If you want to move up & offer up later picks, by all means, offer away. You may pass on your pick. Post your selections in this thread. Both Skyrim 360 games count as one game. Games that had matching manuals in the loose pile of manuals will now be included with the game.. My only goal is to get rid of everything. 😀 I THINK that covers everything. If there are any questions, please ask away. HAVE FUN!!

Post a photo or video of your score in this thread. Scores must be achieved between May 1st through May 14th, 2019.

ELIGIBILITY: Anyone can join in. All players are welcome! PLAY RULES: Games may be played on real hardware, Flashback or emulation, using any controller or keyboard, following rules and game settings as delineated in the Squad Challenge. The use of multiple controllers is allowed in this challenge. Enhancements, rewinds and hacked versions of this game are not allowed. DIFFICULTY LEVEL: Speed 3, Single Life Run. Speed 3 is the next-to-fastest play speed for this game. Please take note that Speed 3 on the Overlay is actually BUTTON 1 on the Controller itself.

SINGLE LIFE RUN: You are only allowed ONE LIFE to achieve your high score in this Squad Challenge. FAIR PLAY: Players should play fairly, be honest, and have fun! Falsified scores will result in your immediate removal from the site. It goes without saying that no use of cheats, hacks, cartridge frying, enhancements, rewinds, Photoshop, subterfuge, or any other unfair advantage is allowed. Everybody hates a cheater.

    Road trip to Seattle

    I'm sharing a few pictures from a road trip to Seattle, which is about 150 miles north of my home in Portland. We went to visit our second son, who is attending school up there. We visited a thriving mall (SouthCenter) that had an actual open Sears, and a crazy Japanese store that sold really cool t-shirts (I got a Super Mario shirt). Downtown Seattle is built on a steep hill, and to explore, you'll go up and down TONS of stairs. Stairs, stairs, and more stairs. That leaves you with a guaranteed souvenir: sore legs. But it's clean air and good exercise! We saw a Pixar orchestra concert, which was sweet. Cruise ships and tall buildings galore. What a beautiful place.

    Absolutely can! One of the first games I played on Sega Master System at my friend's house was F-16 Fighting Falcon. It was my first time seeing a Sega Card. I thought it was one of the coolest things I had ever seen! This was before the TurboGrafx-16 came out. The Sega Cards were less expensive than regular game cartridges and F-16 Fighting Falcon wasn't that impressive of a game, honestly this is one example where the XEGS may have outshined the SMS with Flight Simulator II. But playing video games on something the size of a credit card seemed really impressive. The other thing that stood out to me was using dual controllers to play F-16 Fighting Falcon. My friend and I (we were kids at the time) made a really cool "cockpit" out of cardboard boxes and magic marker. We taped the two Sega Master System controllers to our cardboard cockpit and flew what we thought were the coolest missions. Our cardboard controller beat Nintendo Labo by 30 years.

    That's a better idea than a maze game where you are trying to guide a drunk ET through a house, while at the same time guiding Elliot through a classroom avoiding frogs. (When Spielberg asked for a maze game, this must've been what he had in mind) Sorry Rick.😔 I had several games in the 600-800 range, but then I was finally able to destroy the first wave, which gave me some breathing room (in most games an AT-AT reaches the end before I lose my lives. They move pretty fast in this variation). 1664

    💰 Have you ever found a Red Quarter? What did you think it was? Red quarters are known as “shills”, “house coins” or “freebies.” If you’ve ever found an old quarter that was painted red, (usually dated before the ‘90s) those were used in Arcades to count free plays. Whenever the machine ate your quarter without giving you your game, you’d tell the attendant who would give you a free game to make up for it. Sometimes they had the key to open the coin mech and hit the switch, but in many cases Arcade owners didn’t trust their teenaged employees to have coin mech keys where they could reach in there and grab a fist full of quarters. Instead, Arcades would have extra quarters called “shills” or “house coins” used for this purpose. Sometimes these could also be found in laundromats and diners with jukeboxes. House coins were painted red so that at the end of each week, when all the quarters were counted from the coin box, they would subtract the red quarters from their earnings and return them to the attendants to be used again. Over time most of these quarters have made their way back into circulation. The next time you come across a red quarter dated before the early 1990s set it aside! You never know if that quarter worked long hours at an old Tilt or Aladdin’s Castle somewhere.
