There's no rule for this, it's up to everyone at their discretion. My personal thoughts: I don't like spoilers for the contests myself, I like to figure it out. One thing that's different here versus

@ninjistar I like using spoilers  

I love this game that's why I suggested it. I play it when I'm bored. I forgot my psp however and am on vacation just like Doug. Might be able to play through it Saturday night or Sunday after work th

362,800

I lost my (second to) last life on stopping after a respawn to wait for the lower left counter to tell me how many lives I had left, during which the frogs that spawn right at the start of this stage killed me right away >_>

Probably wouldn't have made a big difference anyway, this stage is a real bitch, and probably the biggest obstacle for me.

I am wanting to keep playing tetris. Feel like I got ripped off hardly being able to play last week with such a great game in the contest. And @mbd39 had me watching a tetris champ make it look easy during some downtime at work today. Ill definitely get back to it here and there. Just scratching the surface, but this game seems decent. The rom I got didn't work. Luckily I have the cart. Pretty sure I bought it in error after reading a good review of kickle cubicle

It was a rough week to get a decent top 8 placement unless you were already well experienced. It's not the kind of game that can be learned in a week.

Joseph Saelee might be the best player in the world right now and he's only in his teens.

Kids/teens' minds are still easy to change, to learn, and to memorize. Being "only in his teens" is a significant advantage.

Well maybe it was the right week to be work buried. Played a few more games and Im still having trouble breaking 100k. And whatever this dudes hand is doing to that controller was never going to happen.

That's hyper tapping, haha. They mash the directions really fast fast (I think over 11 times per second) to get pieces over quicker.

Getting pieces over quicker means being able stack higher at the faster speeds which is a huge advantage. The young tappers influenced by Joseph are starting to dominate Tetris.

      Here's the rules they will have to follow to secure their scores... and their survival!
      Play 1 player mode You can play with either character 1 life only Pause the game as soon as you die and take your picture If you beat the game, you have a very short time to take your picture at the score tally screen.

      Welcome to THE VERY LAST weekly contest game for this season!
      And what a fitting finale right before our most expected tournament!

      This week, our players have it easy, having to compete for high score on the easiest NES game ever conceived, GHOSTS 'N GOBLINS!
      Without further ado, here's the SPOOKY rules for this not at all spooky game:
      Play until Game Over You must power up your NES before each of your run to reset the drop pattern correctly. You may collect each 1-up only once.  In the second loop of the game, you will be allowed to collect each 1-up one time as well. Looping from stage 6 to stage 5 by not having the shield is forbidden Highest score wins Participation: 5,000 GENRE: Action The tournament details will be made public during the course of the next two weeks. Players, be prepared!

      It is time to GET SPOOKY! October is upon us. SPOOOOKYYYY!
       
      So to start this scary season, nothing better than an horrific game, Monster In My Pocket!
      Since our players are scared shirtless, here's the rules already:
      1 life only 1 player only Choose whichever character you want Stage progress followed by high score is what determines your placing. If you make to the final boss, take your picture at the start of the fight. Your run ends there. Max score is 9,500. If you pass over it, your score is 9,490 and your run ends there. In case of 9,490 points ties, progress will determine who wins. If you hit exactly 9,500, you may proceed till the final boss without killing anything else... if you can. Any score picture taken at the boss screen takes precedence over 9,500+ points scores. Reaching the boss is a sure way to secure a top 8 spot. If you make to the final boss with 9,500, you earn the 1st place for this week. Several people can tie for 1st this week. Participation: 500 The contest ends Sunday, 10/11/20 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.
