1st place vs 16th place? I'm going up against the champ at the beginning of the Tournament?

That's how brackets work.  We don't have divisions set up here to split the competition, so yeah, 1st vs 16th is the norm.

Also, you might move up...there's at least one confirmed to not be playing.

I told @BeaIank I would only join in if we could play Antarctic adventures again.  She said that was totally fine!

I've never played it, but it looks like Slalom with a penguin. Can we play Frostbite for the Atari 2600? I'm pretty good at that.

I am fairly certain this isn't true, but I am holding out serious hope that it is. And not because I won that week. Its just such an awesomely addicting game and one where playing for score makes it so much more fun. I don't want to wait til 2024 to play it again!

Hopefully there are some NES games in the NES tournament sooner than later.

So far, two players refused the invitation due to being very busy.
A round of applause for them for their valiant run in the VGS NES Weekly Contest!

This could really shake things up if one is in the top 8. @Jeevanmove to 7 would mean a morbus free round 2 and @Bearcat-Dougwould be forced to off his bestie in @docile tapeworm. Would be a strange site, like watching han and chewie in a head to head battle

If I move up to 7th, that would give me game selection rights in the first round too. @Dr. Morbis and @Krunch are the only players in the top 8 that haven't confirmed, but it looks like they haven't logged in since the invitations went out so the cancelations must have come from lower in the standings.

Cheating isn't allowed! 😂

Cheating

- Cheating will NOT be tolerated in any form. This contest is based on trust and honor. Anyone found cheating will be banned from further competition.
- The use of point glitches to intentionally increase (or in the case of a low score contest, decrease) your score are frowned upon and not allowed in the contests.  If a point glitch is discovered that can create an unfair advantage, the rules for the game will be altered to ban the glitch.  Anyone suspected of using point glitches will have their score disqualified.
- If there is suspicion of a participant cheating, the contest moderators will review the case and the member may be asked to present further evidence of their score.  Further evidence includes, but is not limited to, video recordings and/or extra pictures.
- If you suspect another participant of cheating, do NOT call them out in the contest threads.  Please send a PM to the contest organizers and we will review the score.  Posting accusations in the contest threads creates unnecessary drama and stress for all involved and will NOT be tolerated.

      Welcome, fiery warriors. I hope you all are ready and up for the challenge.
      The very last challenge of the 2021 VGS NES Weekly Contest and that will define the one who will bear the coveted crow of the Platformer genre!
      Right now, @Dr. Morbis cannot be beaten at the Geral contest and is the 2021 VGS NES Weekly Contest CHAMPION! CONGRATULATIONS!
      As for the platformer genre, @Dr. Morbis leads with 28 points, but @PIIis right on his tail with 25 points. Krunch is not out of the race with 20 points.

You can also be careful and take the picture of your magic as you are one hit from dying. If you cannot take the picture of your current magic, your magic will be considered 0 at respawn. Take your picture once you respawn If you beat the game, take the picture at the ending. Progress + highest magic at death wins Genre: Platformer Good luck warriors. You will need it.
