Just like the title says: Correctly choose which day I reach 999,999 on Kaboom! and win 10 Atari 2600 Cartridges.

 

Here are the rules:

- Each person gets TWO choices. 

- More than one person can choose the same date.

- The choice must include the month-day- AND year in that order.

- The cutoff time will be the exact time I reach the score of 999,999, which I will write down as soon as I finish.

- If no one picks the correct date the closest person will win 5 cartridges.

- If, by some miracle, two or more people choose the same correct date they will share the prize.

- If the winner clicked on "like" this post they will win an additional 5 cartridges.

- The cartridges haven't been chosen yet.  The winner will get to pick from my collection of duplicates.

 

Good luck to all!   

 

And wish me luck on reaching this score.    I have been at it off and on for the last 14 years so think about which year(s)  you choose.  :D

 

I will start playing for this contest today.

11/8/2016 voting day would be ideal to slip on the 999,999

 

My other guess would be 1/22/2017.

 

Happy bombing.

You've been at it for so long, and since you just made this thread after 14 years of practice it sounds like you're pretty determined to make it happen soon. So, I'm venturing a guess that you'll finally pull it off this weekend or the next.

11/06/2016 or 11/13/2016 :)

My first choice is coming up tomorrow ......any status updates?
