Recommended Posts

I'm hosting an online contest to see who can hold the most Nintendo game paks at one time. The winner will receive a customized trophy and some Internet points.

 

Rules

1. The games must be in a stack.

2. One hand only.

3. You must flip them upside down, hold for eight seconds.

4. Submissions must be video, no photographs.

 

Submissions

Attempts can be shared @FerrisonNA via Twitter. Entry ends April 26th at 11:59PM.

 

Game on.  #ClawCompetition

The rules don't state that you can't tape a bunch of games together and hold them by the tape. 

So the question is: how lenient are you on people following the rules but not doing it quite how you intended in your head?

Guess we'll see. Lol, now I'm picturing a battle to tape the most together.

You should check out the show Taskmaster on Youtube (they put older seasons up on there, the show itself is a few seasons ahead of what's on YT). It's basically my favorite thing to watch right now, and the idea is similar to what you have here. Some sort of video game themed Taskmaster would be the tits.

I don't understand rule #3

It's called the Cowboy Blizzard rule. Flip it up side down like you're at a Dary Queen drive through and you just ordered a Blizzard. Hold it for eight seconds because that's how long you have to ride a steer at the rodeo for your score to qualify.

Have you tried, yet?

They also don't stand that they must be NES cartridges, even though that's what you see in the video.

There's a lot to work with here 🙂

I'll make some announcements later, but I believe the first thing we'll be doing is making a second trophy and splitting up into Mens and Womens categories due to Title IX.

@Ferris Bueller are you the Dragon Warrior guy? Because if you are, I expect you to make a submission with all DW carts...

I was not planning to compete, as winning your own competition is frowned upon usually, but how about an example video with some DWs? Dig the drawing.

Nice, so you are the Dragon Warrior guy! I love the website you made cataloging the collection - always excited to see updates! (and I'll stop derailing your thread now haha)

Ok, I suck at this but I think just holding a bunch, but most hold upside-down. Should count. Why? Cause someone with killer balls hands could pinch, say, 8-10 carts and possibly wrap there pinky and pointers around to pinch 2-3 more!

I managed to do 10 in a single stack.

Not sure how that guy on Twitter did a "double stack" like that using only one hand.

Are we allowed to use our other hand to "start it off" or do we have to pick up the entire stack single handedly without any assistance?

Ahaha! Now you see why there is the 8 second rule. Hope you're having fun with it.

 

I can maintain it longer if I pick it up with the carts standing sideways....but I feel carts laying end to end isn’t a “stack” anymore and is cheating.

I can almost do 11 for 8 seconds if I use my second hand to comfortably set them in my hand.

Yesterday, one right after the other, @Divingninja and Hal from the Retro World Series, both posted 21 cart entries. There is currently a tie, judges are debating what to do.

@Gloves Anyway to get the videos from Twitter to show up here?
