Those BRAVE players will face a most difficult challenge this week, involving 2 games!

Our first game is... BUBBLE BOBBLE!
The rules for it are very simple:

  • One life only
  • Play till game over
  • Highest score wins

For this game, the players will be award points in the following manner:

  • 1st place: 25 points
  • 2nd place: 20 points
  • 3rd place: 15 points
  • 4th place: 10 points
  • 5th place: 5 points

But to test their mettle and prove their worth, they will also have to DARE THROUGH CIRCUS CHARLIE!
A Famicom exclusive that is a bombshell of fun!

Here's the rules:

  • Play 1 player, mode B
  • Play 1 life only
  • One loop only
  • Take your picture at stage start after losing your life or at stage start of stage 6 if you loop the game
  • Highest score wins

For this game, the players will be award points in the following manner:

  • 1st place: 12 points
  • 2nd place: 8 points
  • 3rd place: 4 points
  • 4th place: 2 points
  • 5th place: 1 points

The player that has the highest sum of points will be crowned THE 2020 VGS WEEKLY CONTEST TOURNAMENT CHAMPION!
So get ready lads, and do your best!

We're all awaiting for all the exciting action that will unfold in this EPIC WEEK!

The contest ends Sunday, 12/13/20 at 11 PM VGS time.  Your user name MUST be written or typed on a piece of paper and be in the picture for your score to be valid.  The entire TV screen, or computer monitor if you are playing on an emulator, MUST be in the picture for the score to be valid.  No partial screenshots will be considered or accepted.  No screenshots by hitting "print screen" on a computer will be allowed.  You must take a picture of your computer monitor.  There may be instances where this will be acceptable, but it will be at the discretion of myself and the contest organizers.  Also, the use of turbo controllers is forbidden, as well as any cheat codes, Game Genies, slow motion functions, or save states if playing on an emulator.  Also, we will only be using NTSC systems for the contests.  The use of PAL systems will NOT be allowed.  Good luck everyone and have fun.

Upon seeing this photo, I noticed a rare opportunity - a chance to see your face in it's full glory. So I popped open Photoshop and got to work.

It took a bit of doing because the CRT is obviously an angled screen, and the lighting is a bit rough, but in the end I managed to get what I believe to be a very accurate and very clean image of your full face:
