By season's end, Retrocade Magazine and its partners will have awarded around $200
worth of prizes at NO COST
to players! We've given away Retrocade Magazine PDFs, Starcade DVDs, books, t-shirts and now $50 credit at GameGavel.com
(in each of the last two tournaments of the season - the last tournament being the 2600 tournament
Retrocade Magazine's tournaments are unique in that there is absolutely NO COST to players for registration and participation
. Registration with the forums (RetrocadeMagazine.net/forums
) is FREE
and participation involves playing the games, snapping a picture of your TV screen and uploading it with your score submission (something some of you are accustomed to doing anyway with the High Score Clubs).
Success in these tournaments is gauged in participation. We've had some exciting finishes in our tournaments like Virender Dayal winning the ColecoVision tournament
by only 0.03%
. We've also seen players challenge themselves to new heights like Glen Updike's 1,179,880
performance on Mario Bros.
in the NES Power Play Tournament
"By Classic Gamers For Classic Gamers" is our motto and mission. Retrocade Magazine strives to support and promote the classic gaming community as we've done and will continue to do so.
And if you're still reading this and since I'm talking about community, let me point you to our friend Kitty McScratch who is raising money for Child's Play. Child's Play is a charity that provides kids in hospitals all around the world with books, toys and games. There's a Chip-In widget on Kitty's www KittyMcScratch.com
and her goal is to get $500 worth of donations by St. Patty's Day.
