    Just for historical purposes, this was the only "bounty" poster that I could find a copy of from the 2005 offerings

    Interestingly, while the world record fell during that year's "bounty" offering (a smaller prize was collected by Donald Hayes), the fictional "Costanza Record" was beaten years later though too late to claim the prize offered.

    I wish that TG had more of these opportunities available, and thankfully this new "Dragster bounty" will hopefully restore that competitive spirit among today's gamers.

    Thank you, Robert, for some of the historical context regarding the bounties. I agree that it would be good to see more of this kind of thing.

    I must say I find the idea of Todd Rogers offering $10000 to tie a score very curious. As I understand it, Billy Mitchell's Pacman bounty was offered to anyone surpassing his achievement and making it to level 257+. It seems odd that someone would offer a 5-figure sum for just equalling their achievement...

    Anyway, we have another $200 which has been contributed to the 5.51 Dragster bounty, making the current running totals:
    5.51 $605.51
    5.54 $130

    I'd might as well stick in $1,000,000 'cus he's not going to do it.

    Shouldn't you set a "by date" with this? I'd hate to "throw in" ...AND in 20 years time get asked to pay up on something I've forgotten about. If you know what I mean?

    I'd like to know from Todd how much money HE would like to perform a 5.51 again (that gets passed here at TG)

    I think these bounties have the same amount of chance of being claimed as this one does. http://kdvr.com/2017/06/27/1-million...re-of-bigfoot/

    In BlackFlag82's original bounty post which was referenced in QAOP Spaceman's first post on this thread, he spelled out conditions including:
