And the game competition for cash has been announced (though the game hasn't been decided).

Which games are in the running for selection? Not that I am going anyway but it might be food for discussion beyond announcements.

We have no games in the running right now.  :)  In the past we had Boxing (from Compute's Gazette), International Soccer, International Karate, Decathlon... to name a few.  We need ideas!  :)

In the past 15 years, I've hosted a number of gaming competitions. The C64 ones were International Karate, Micro Hexagon (either battle or high score), Hat Trick, Olympic Skier (high score) and the two events Speed Skating + Ski Jump from Winter Games. Yes, there is a strong sports theme both among your and my games, but usually it is the sport games that are suitable for competition.

 

Really consider looking into Micro Hexagon unless you're afraid of seismic exposure.

 

Also if you have a 40 column PET available, you could try e.g. Car Race ][ by Satoru Iwata which I find is one of the better and more challenging PET games for a high score competition.

Thanks for all the ideas!  :)  I'll look into Micro Hexagon.

 

As for the PET, we'll have a PET 8032 on hand.

 

Not planning for the PET 4032 to be there,

In more sobering news, Los Angeles County has announced it is requiring certain venues, like bars, to require customers have Covid vaccine verification and to be fully vaccinated by Nov. 4.  Without vaccine verification, customers cannot enter.

 

CLASS is held in the Burbank VFW hall, and half of that hall is a full bar, the bar only separated from the rest of the hall by a wall and an inner door.  There are two West Magnolia Blvd. entrances to the building, one to the bar and one directly to our side of the hall.  By the time of CLASS, if you enter from the street and into the bar in order to go to our show, you will have to show proof of full vaccination.  If you enter from the street through the door directly leading to our side of the hall, then showing proof is not required (yet).

 

You are strongly recommended to be fully vaccinated when coming to CLASS.

 

Keeping up with the changes,

Yup, Volley for Two is very nice!  I don't prefer Jam It.
