Sorry mr_me, but those are in the same format of the Utopia instructions you sent out, and they are very hard to read.  Here is a much more readable version:

I do recommend using pixelatedarcade.com for all instruction manuals.  It's a perfect site for that.

You guys need to give me some tips for defeating the dang recognizers! I've only been able to do it a few times. I think I understand in concept what you need to do, but I'm the WORST at doing it. Any help would be appreciated.

So it looks like if you stand right above the second horizontal line from the top and next to either diagonal vertical line you will be pretty much in line to hit it, unless something gets in your way.

Yes you have to be precise on either side and time it exactly right.  The two spots are different though in relation to the horizontal line...it won't matter where you are in relation to the vertical line.  You can be as close or far away from the recognizer as you want, as long as you stand in the correct position near the horizontal line and time your throw right.

Isn't the timing kind of luck though?

Yes sometimes, but the correct timing will help you more often.

Are you sure? If you must hit the recognizer's "eye," which moves back and forth, wouldn't your distance from the diagonal vertical lines determine when your disc hits the recognizer - and thereby when you need to throw?

No it doesn't matter.  Only matters when you throw the disc.  If you are bit closer to it, then wait a beat longer, and vice versa.  But it is best to stay near the vertical line anyway for betting judgement on the timing.

That's so counter-intuitive to me! But I'm excited to try again with this knowledge.

Yep, lol.  That video by Al Birman is all you need to study!  He is the master.

Jacob, will we be getting a sneak peak of next week's game as well?

Lately, he's been just sneak peeking every 2nd game, which I quite like. Some teasing, some surprises, good balance.

He's included a sneak peak on the title page of each of the last 4 games, so my understanding is that he changed it and is now doing it on every game.  I think it helps, especially if you don't have the game, so you can buy it on eBay in time, or download it for emulation.

That's what happens when you pay attention. You get disappointed. My reality is much more exciting! 🙂
