Winter Olympics - Atari 2600 "sign up" time!

Recommended Posts

Welcome to Sochi, Russia

Time has come again for the Atari 2600 Winter Olympics ''2014''.

 

There will be 4 games played total, the winter sports titles for the Atari 2600.

 

The games played will be,

 

Ice Hockey (judged by highest total earned and biggest blowout)

Skiing

Mogul Maniac

Winter Games

 

Every individual game available on Winter Games will be counted in competition.

Slalom

Bobsled

Ski Jump

Biathlon

Speed Skating
Hot Dog
Luge

Your job before the Olympics is to "claim" what country you want play for, and you will represent that country! It's "3" people per country, if a team is full (3), you must choose another country! YOUR ODDS OF A WINNING TEAM ARE STRONGER IF YOU TEAM UP WITH SOMEONE ELSE.

 

This contest will run on the first day of the Olympics to the end. So the 2600 Winter Games will begin Feb 7th and ends Feb. 23rd

Set all the games on default aka 1 B/B. icon_smile.gif Also hardware used can be Atari 2600, 7800, and emulation. Of course no cheating of any kind. Any questions ask below.

Thanks :)

 

SCORING

Gold Medal = 5 points, 1st

Silver Medal = 3 points, 2nd

Bronze Medal = 2 points, 3rd

My great, great grandfather was from Germany, so I'll enroll on the Germany team.

I have never taken part in one of these competitions before. Here goes nothing, I am willing to represent Canada if possible.

I'm horrific at these Olympic-style games, but I'd like to test the waters as team Tibet.

 

They reportedly place an emphasis on cooperative work ethic as opposed to competitive strife |:)

Anyone want me on their team? I am very good at Skiing. I don't know about the other games because I haven't played them yet.

Team Tibet is open to new membership, provided that prospective members realize that my scores alone will likely drag the team down to last place. :)

Tibet has a full team now :!:

 

OK, I got two weeks or so to figure out how to get a score other than "FAULT" on the Ski Jump event........

 

In the mean time, heat up some yak milk and barley tea, and join me in the Himalayas

I think this message was lost yesterday but I asked if Jacob would get this thread pinned until the conclusion of the games.

@gamerguy -- That's a good idea: I'll have to do a search for videos of the ski jump event! :idea:

 

The contest doesn't start until Feb 7th and ends Feb 23rd. I'm not sure if we're posting scores here or if Jake is going to start a different thread when the time comes.
