Club VCS Recharged Squad Challenge Giveaway (SERIES TWO)


Recommended Posts

We just closed our very first Recharged Squad Challenge Giveaway!  @Yorkies TV was the lucky winner of a Classic Joystick Controller.  But we're not going to stop there.  One more controller is up for grabs! 



From August 1, 2022 to December 31, 2022 we will play five VCS games.  After the last game, we will hold a drawing for a brand new Atari VCS Modern Controller!

For this series, we're applying some lessons learned from the first round AND providing even more chances to win!

Here are the rules:

1)  All challenge participants will receive one (1) entry for each challenge in which they submit a valid score!

2) The top scorer of each challenge will receive two (2) additional entries - for a total of three (3) entries in a single challenge!

3) On Twitch or Youtube?  Stream or record and post your ClubVCS high score attempt for one (1) additional entry in each round.  You must post a link to the video link to that month's Recharged Squad Challenge. 


Yes! We've made another set of ClubVCS buttons to celebrate the games in this series. There will be two ways to get a button set.

1) Win a challenge.

2) Post a valid score to all challenges in the 5 game series.

Only one button set will be mailed per member during the series.

This contest is open to everybody, including Atari I/O Moderators, with a U.S. or Canada mailing address. It's really easy, all you have to do is be a Club VCS member in good standing and participate in our Recharged Squad Challenges.

COOL!  There's two there that I was going to purchase soon.  One I already own...and that last one..I'm not familiar with it but it looks like fun.  Thank you!  Nicely done as usual. 

Thanks, Rick. I hope that we'll see you on the scoreboards!

The last one - Jetboard Joust - is at the top of my list for VCS recommendations.  Here's a link to a blog post I did on it.

I will be tabulating entries for the second giveaway this week.  The winner of the Modern Controller will be announced at a time TBD.

We're also hosting our third ClubVCS giveaway. The first game is VCTR-SCTR and is live now!

Glad you are doing a third one sabertooth, and what a game to start it out with. Hopefully we can recruit some more of the many new vcs players
