Well, a playoff.

Not any multi-tiered elimination thing. Just a single-round competition among the top 5 to determine the overall winner.

I don't think they have ever mentioned GEGOTW in the official MARP news.

I didn't forewarn the folks that are responsible for the notices there, and since I have stressed from the start that GEGOTW is a personal offer from myself and not officially connected to MARP in any way, they may feel it appropriate not to announce it on the official page.

This is certainly a line that I do not ever want blurred.

I'm afraid I cannot compete in Galaxian for two reasons:
1) I really suck at this game
2) Tommorow I'm leaving fot a 5-day alcoholocaust ;)

For those not already aware of Mark Alpiger's forums (I just ran across them a couple of weeks ago), I also posted the GEGOTW announcement there and Gary "sandinista" Whelan has responded:

Congrats BeeJay, first points in GEGOTW2006 :)

I like this game, is fun, but totally don't know what I do wrong. My scores are in range 30-40k :?

For sure I will play for T-Shirt. :P

I notice that begining from right side is easier and more pattern than begining in middle. I didn't show this in my current inp, it was only my first try where I begin stage from right side.

My score will be low because I too late begin this round but I found when swarms starts. I will write it in general section.

Ok, 3 games at 180K, I'm done. Free to hate the game again.
