The Twin Galaxies General Gameplay Global Rules And Guidelines For All Submissions shall apply, however the above listed bounty and track rules are considered the overriding rule set where/if there is any direct overlap or conflict.

BOUNTY CLAIM RANK #1 WILL RECEIVE - One (1) TG Achievement Point, One (1) $250 Amazon eGift Card, and the option to receive a unique TG user profile member title of "Kong King" - this profile title will remain until January 1st, 2023 and then will revert back to the user's previous TG user title.

This Bounty Challenge leaderboard only contains 10 viewable competitive slots, however claimants are free to submit as many times as they want to. The leaderboard only shows the top 10 highest score submissions.
The Bounty Challenge will remain open, accepting as many submissions as possible until 11:59PM PST on NOVEMBER 30th 2022.
Only one score performance of an individual claimant can occupy the leaderboard at any time, therefore if the same claimant submits a better performance than their previous submission it will replace their lower scoring performance on the leaderboard.
TG Achievement points should be considered valuable and rare, so don't miss a chance to grab one if you can! Aside from only being able to acquire them through bounty accomplishment, these points are very likely to be recognized in the future by TG as one avenue for determining things such as uniquely earned access, privilege related recognition, and other opportunities. TG Achievement points will never be sold. They will never be tradeable. TG Achievement points represent the accomplishment of unique tasks, set by TG, that demonstrate proof of skill outside of specific world record or general leaderboard achievement.
We have chosen Donkey Kong (Arcade version) as our first official bounty to help recognize and honor Twin Galaxies' classic arcade gaming roots, and to provide a simple yet competitive stress test for our beta.
Once the bounty closes, no more new claims will be accepted into submissions. Any claim that has not completed its adjudication (still sitting in the voting queue) but was submitted before the above time/date will remain accepted into submissions and processed.

Please place any questions, comments or concerns in the discussion thread below!
Need clarification if L1-1 girders is when you press player 1 start (intro cutscene)... OR... after the intro climb, stomp and "How High can you get?" message.
NB: I'm 99.9% sure it's the girders after the "How high can you get?" message, as the game is drawing on the first board girder (L1-1). Most submissions have used this point.
