I obviously missed something awesome here

Skinny happened to find someone selling a $100 TV and the screen had the reflection of a topless saggy elderly woman. 😍

Hey, this is a very good score. Players were getting similar scores or even lower in  the 2009 contest and then posted in the upper 170s later in the week. You can do it.

Im going to keep trying some. Would definitely be cool to hit 170. Noticed @Krunchway up there in 2017 scores. Then I saw his old avator and remembered he was a regular everywhere on NA. Just putting two and two together its the same dude. He may well give you a run for your money

At 100 bucks for a CRTV, it oughta come with something extra

Any minute now, someone's gonna invent a TV that can do this.

...assuming it doesn't already exist...

.... ....which it probably does.... .... ....

Haha well I have had my fun times with this game before and I had a higher score than my 2017 on the now defunct (?) AVS Scoreboard but to get to MBD’s score there are so many extra mechanics to tighten up, I will gladly battle for second though, I might as well just top this and not post it but I’m under your score by like 2,000.  Anyway I keep dying in silly parts so that’s “free peanut butter to polish off the spoon” as the youth say

It's crazy that 9 people broke 170k in the 2017 contest. Every MM ringer on the website showed up and other great players such as tables and Swift Frost were posting high scores. I would be happy if several people broke 170k this week. I think you and NESfiend have a good shot at it.

All I remember is that I freaking suck at this game.
This' definitely a game that needs some good booze with it in order to get half decent scores.

Oh yeah. You also got 170K. So that was 10 players who broke 170k in 2017. Wow. That year was an anomaly as far as MM contests go. Usually only several players score that high.

Can we just file this game under the aids category and go along our way?  Ugh, i hate the way it controls.  Not doing bad, but not doing great either.

Marble Madness is the second best NES game after Tetris. Facts.

I've played this game for decades, but I don't think I've ever gotten past level 5. And I can only just barely reach the goal in level 4 before time runs out.

I've never beat the game but I'm so glad to see I can easily get pass the point as a kid I never could.  Like a true idiot kid I didn't ever use the turbo/speed boost button.

      This week we will see who will be crowned the VERY FIRST VGS NES Weekly Contest Racing champion!
      Right now, the dispute has @NESfiend with 30 points and a very comfortable lead of 5 points over @PII, who has 25 points. With 22 points, @Dr. Morbis has no chance to take the crown from Nesfiend, so the dispute this week is between only him and Pii
      To decide this matter, the game of choice is R.C. Pro Am II. The rules are as follow:
      Player 1p only Play till game over You are not allowed to use continues. You ended 4th? TOUGH LUCK! You are done for.

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

      Hello and welcome, players!
      Be prepared, for this week you will have to rely on your fists, feet, knifes and machine guns to make through P.O.W.!
      This week will decide who will claim the crown to the Beat 'em up genre, proving they are the best bare hand fighter at VGS!
      @mbd39 currently leads the Beat 'em up scoreboard, with 23 points. Right behind him we have @NESfiend with 22 points, Krunch is creeping really close to both of them with 21 points.
      The three of them are the only ones with a chance to claim the title!
      So, without further ado, here's the rules
      Play until Game Over No point racking If you score less than 20,000 points, be ready to take your picture at the Game Over screen (it doesn’t stay up long) If you score more than 20,000 points, start a new game to get your score Each extra life remaining after beating the game adds 5000 points to your score. Highest score wins GENRE: Beat ‘Em Up
      The contest ends Sunday, 10/10/21 at midnight Brasilia time.

      Ladies and gentlemen, we are BACK with the last round of games of our beloved VGS NES Weekly Contest!
      To decide who will wear the laurels and claim the fame of being the 2021 VGS NES Weekly Contest Sports champion, we have one epic game of brutal action, where basketball meets street brawling!
      ARE YOU READY FOR Nekketsu Street Basketball?
      The rules are below:
      Pick battle mode (2nd option in the game) Pick 1P mode Pick Nekketsu as your team (first team in the screen) Pick US Navy as your opponent (second team in the screen) Pick the VEGAS stage to play on (second stage to the left, with the slot machines icon) Take your picture at the end of the match. Highest score difference for the Nekketsu team wins Participation: Beat the second team
      @0xDEAFC0DEhas a very comfortable 4 points lead over @NESfiend, who is the only who can challenge him for the Sports title this year.
      For Nesfiend to win, he needs to win this week and hope @0xDEAFC0DE doesn't score over 6th place, since he will be tied on most wins, but loses on the 2nd tie breaker, most 2nd places.
      Will he be able to pull such a miracle to claim the crown? Time will tell!
