Title: YES ! Hi-Score contest at Eurocade 2012 ! Win great prizes !!!
Post by: Level42 on August 17, 2012, 05:18:46 PM
My friends, a number of people suggested/asked for a little competition between the visitors of Eurocade.

Although we don't want to turn Eurocade into a tournament and had some reservations about it, we think we found a great "middle road" for all.

Gyruss will explain the rules here, but I will already mention that participating is absolutely FREE for all registered visitors to Eurocade ! And the prizes...are very nice indeed !

During the event there's going to be one cabinet (with a high score save kit) available for you guys to compete with each other.
Which cabinet? That's a surprise, but it's a great classic and the cabinet is a real looker!!

The competition will start at 12:00 and last until dinner time. After the food we'll announce the winners.

Team Eurocade won't participate because we already know which title it's going to be. But we do ask you guys not to hog the machine and let everybody have a fair chance to set a nice score!  ;)

As Andre already mentioned we won't charge a fee for this competition!! But we do have some really great prizes for the top 5 players!!!!!

Many thanks to our AWESOME SPONSORS (Arcadefixit.com, Freakshirt.nl, Arcadeforge.de, Arcadeshop.de) who showed some real love for arcade gaming by making these great prizes available for you!

The winner of the competition will have the first pick at these great items, after that, number 2 gets to choose...etc

In no particular order:

No he didn't, you tried to frame him Michael ! ;);)

The sad part of the hi-score competition was that at the end of the evening it turned out that a few prizes had gone.............

The Eurocade T-shirt and the SLG-3000 had disappaered.

I really cannot imagine that any of the visitors are capable of intentially taking this stuff deliberately.

So.... I sincerely hope that someone made a mistake and may have thought that these items were "for free" to take or something similar.

So, please if anyone took the white Eurocade T-shirt and/or the SLG-3000 unknowingly, please report in PM to me so we can solve this small spot on an otherwise perfect weekend.

Thanks.

Yes guys, André is not kidding about the missing prizes. But as he said we are sure that someone unintentionally made a mistake. It can happen and we hope that this will be settled soon. Anyway, we have been able to replace the missing prizes already, so the 5 winners won´t have to be afraid.  :)

And the 5 prize winners of the High Score contest on Donkey Kong are:

5. Jinxz with 45,600
4. Darthnuno 50,300
3. Bela 52,500
2. Tup 62,700
1. Bombjack 112,300 (photo proof has been shown)

Bombjack already claimed his prize, a € 100 gift coupon from www.arcadeshop.de (http://www.arcadeshop.de)

The other prize winners will soon be contacted by Gyruss to claim their prizes.

Mehhh, too bad I couldn't compete.....would have been able to make #2 if I did a good game  ;D ;D ;D

Seriously: congrats to all the winners and thanks for competing !


We'd like to know if you feel this set-up of contest was a good idea. Like last year I will set-up a small survey.....

I think its a good idea, though i had hoped that it would involve 5 or more cabs...

Congrats to the winners of the DK competition!
Nice that your still 2nd place TUP! :)

And about the SLG and T-shirt, that's sad man :(

The Eurocade T-shirt and the SLG-3000 had disappaered.


WTF??  >:(

That reminds me, that you can NEVER know....even if you invite personally. May the shirt shrink to baby-size and the SLG burn all elctronics in the house it is installed  :twisted:

Post by: jinxz on September 03, 2012, 11:19:02 AM
It's tough to find out that the stuff had been stolen but it does mean that the shirt that i made was cool enough to steal ;) In Holland we call that 'een veer in me reet'. Now google translate that ;)
But just act as if the shirt is still available and i will make a new one and ship it to the winner. If that ends up being me... also fine  :D

The competition would be nice to spread out over multiple cabs indeed. That way you spread out the crowd and the competition. My choice would be DK, Galaxian, Bubble Bobble, Ice Cold Beer and a racegame.

I didn't realize that DK was so addictive that it hurts.

What about the highscore prices? Where they found - or are they still in "hiding"??

anyway, on the other hand the winner can enjoy a unique SLG3000 enclosure. This aluminium enclosure is the only one that exist so far.

Mmm, maybe we should give something unique on all our prizes so next time it will be dead-easy to trace.....naaahhhh, there won't be a next time for disappearing prizes...
