Hello Everyone!

 

Hope everyone is practicing up for another great season.

 

Here are the details:

The NEW HSC Season 7 starts Jan 13, 2018

It will run about 28 weeks ending in July or Aug.

 

Season 7 will have:

~'The Arcade'. Games from the arcade.

~Activision weeks

~Gold metal winner pick from Oyamafamily (expect a private IM from me for your pick)

~Silver Metal winner pick from Lauren Tyler (expect a private IM from me for your pick)

~Bronze Metal winner pick from Raccoony Dave (expect a private IM from me for your pick)

~Several 'Special' weeks with multiple games

~Paddle weeks

~Homebrew weeks

~Several games that have never been played in the HSC

~More popular games we all love

~Ending with the 'Beat the Leaders' weeks.

 

I am asking for your requests... please post those below. But keep this in mind.... we will ONLY be playing games that have NOT been played in the HSC for 3 years.

So you will not see any games that were last played in the year of 2015/2016/2017. All will be 2014 and before. 

 

The goal here is to have fun and try new games that may or may not be good.

 

After the season, we will have the Medal Brackets (Aug/Sept).... take 1 month off and then start Season 8.

 

Thanks for keeping the 2600 HSC alive and well!

~Vocelli

My request would be to have an Activision timed games for 2 weeks.       Barnstorming, Grand Prix, and Sky Jinks       I would say skiing but I know we just played that.

Sorry! My bad. I was on a roll, ripping through all of the old posts, putting that list together. Plus I'm not super familiar with the 2600 library.

No soup for me?

Great job compiling that list! I'm a little bummed out that there's no chance of us playing Alien (it was the game I was most hoping to play this season), but such is life I suppose. Maybe next time around. :)

Just curious, why no paddles with those games? There aren't that many paddle games to begin with, yet alone good ones. And there are quite a few world class Kaboom players in these parts. I'd say change it up a bit.

just to add a new challenge to it, it could be bonus points for a game
