Atari 2600 HSC Winter Knockout Tournament


Are you bored, maybe looking for a contest while waiting for Atari 2600 HSC to start again? If so, work on your 2600 skills here and bring the heat this winter! FIRE AWAY, GAME ON! Do you think you got what it takes to survive the novice or expert Atari 2600 gamer?!

If you do or just want to compete, you came to the right place! For the first time, we are going to hold an Atari 2600 HSC Knockout tournament. Are you prepared? Here are the rules...


1) Each player will select one 2600 game for the contest rounds! I will post everyones game choice on this thread. Once everyones set and choosen a game, I will draw them from a hat to see what we will play WEEK by WEEK.
NO SPORTS, HOMEBREWS or POINT LEECHING TYPE GAMES please.

2) Each game will be posted with a time limit for scores to be submitted. As the HSC rules, photos are encourage but not required except when mentioned for the game in question.

3) Once time has expired for the game, the player(s) with the lowest score will be eliminated from the competition (aka Knocked-out) and the remaining players move to the next title.

4) The winner, simply put, is the last member standing.

If you are knocked out of the contest, you may still continue to play as much as you want, from the game list, ... ! It won't count for the Knockout of course, but you will be allowed to see where you'd rank for each game and have your score up...

Are you in?, if so, post below to reserve your space in the Knockout tournament? Are you a HSC Moderator thinking this would be cool for your HSC? If so, drop me a private PM and we can get a series of knockouts going, with the winners facing each other in a final, multi-console knockout for supreme Atariage HSC supremacy!

On your mark, get set... GAME ON E.T.!!!
