High Score Club Rules:
The rules will be posted IN THIS THREAD ONLY. So I won't have to repeat it during each round.
Games are to be played by an authentic Sega Genesis/Mega Drive console, clone system, flashback console, or emulation.
Continues are not allowed. Game ends after a Game Over or completion of game.
You can post your score however many times is neccessary as long as it's between the round's timeframe from start to finish.
Cheats of any kind are NOT PERMITTED. No Cheat codes, Game Genies, Cartridge frying, or any other type of enhancer. Anybody caught cheating will be permanently BANNED from future participation in the league. Nobody likes a cheater.
You must play the game between during the time it's posted to when it ends to earn points during league play. However you can post scores after the event to challenge the top scores.
Scores must be presented between the round timeframe. No photographs of old scores or saved memory from an SD flash drive. Sorry I won't accept your Sonic the Hedgehog 2,000,000 point domination from 1992.
Point pressing/farming is discouraged.
Screenshots are encouraged but not required. Youtube videos of your performance is absolutley accepted.
Scoring for each round is this:
1st Place: 15 Points
