I have to admit, I did feel a little badly for the girl that wanted to play Donkey Kong yesterday. She had her heart set on playing on the dedicated cabinet (rather than on one of the multicades), and I had to tell her that this was sometimes just the way it goes - we couldn't interrupt Randy Y. (YEG), I saw that he was on a mission.

And on a mission he was, breaking the High Scores record for Donkey Kong with a score of 306,200. Congratulations to Randy!

Also wanted to spread the word about the upcoming 2010 Classic Arcade Gaming Dot Com (CAGDC) World Record Tournament, scheduled for Saturday, September 25 at Richie Knucklez in Flemington, NJ. We were talking to Mark Alpiger (of King of Kong fame, as he likes to say :) ) earlier today about the possibility of High Scores being an official qualifying location to practice for the tournament...the game list is still up in the air, but so far we feature a lot of the contenders in our selection.

Hope to see you guys soon - open again on Wednesday!


  1. I'd love to come out and see your place - any chance I could bum a ride from and back to the airport if I did? lol I'm from Battle Creek, Michigan and am trying to visit all of the arcades that keep Galaga high scores. :) I think I have a game lined up with Phil Day next month in Grand Rapids. I'm looking VERY forward to that, as his record is one I'd like to take down!


  2. Have you seen this Alpiger video?
