2021 Jonas Neubauer Memorial BTC Bounty

*Posting this again for those who may not have seen it the first time. PLEASE spread word of this to any parties who may be interested.

In honor of the great video gaming legacy left behind by the late Jonas Neubauer, here is a bounty on some of the most insane scores, on some of the most popular and competitive games, by some of the best gamers to ever work a joystick.

Bounty List:

$70 - for beating Victor Sandbergs Missile Command Marathon Setting World Record High Score

$50 - for defeating BOTH of Jordan Dorrington's Galaga World Records (Tourney & Marathon)
$50 - for defeating BOTH of John McAllister's Asteroids World Records (Tourney & Marathon)

$30 for beating Tony Temple's Missile Command Record on Tourney Settings
$30 for getting a faster Perfect Pac-man than David Race's WR time of 3:28:49
$30 for defeating Abdner Ashman's MS Pac Man WR High Score of 933,580


$20 for beating Ben Mullen's World Record of 296 Lines on NES Tetris
$20 for beating the 38 yr old Robotron Marathon World Record of 287,211,050 set by Michael Dullard
$20 for beating Bryan Wagner's World Record High Score of 11,512,500 on BurgerTime
$20 for beating the Defender Marathon Settings WR of 79,976,975 set by Chris Hoffman that has stood since 1984

$10 for beating Jon Tanahhill's 2017 Space Invaders World Record High Score
$10 for beating Michael Smith's 2012 World Record Frogger Score of 970,440

That's around $400 in total prize earnings across 12 Arcade Games and one NES Game.

All bounties to be paid in Bitcoin. The payout level tier system is completely arbitrary, payout amounts do not necessarily corelate with the difficulty of capturing said bounty.



RULES:

*Cant beat your own record

*Must be performed on Original Arcade Hardware

*PCB/Dipswitches must be shown for Arcade submissions

*Controller, Console and Game Cartridge must be shown at some point in the video for Console Submissions

*Entries must be submitted no later than Midnight Dec 25th 2021, Central Daylight Time

*All entries must be entered through Twin Galaxies' TGSAP verification system and must be accepted in order to receive winnings.

*Only one payout per track. In the event a WR is beaten by multiple people the payout will be
given to the person with the highest score.

*For the bounties which feature 2 records (Galaga, Asteroids) in the event that multiple people are able to
beat one or both records, in order to receive the payout a player must have the highest score on BOTH tracks, Tourney and Marathon.

*In general, bounties will not begin to be paid until December 26th. However, in the event a bounty is captured and it does not appear there is any relatively immediate active competition on said bounty, I may choose to pay that bounty early, at my own discretion. If this happens the active bounty for that track will be ended prior to Dec 25th upon payment of winnings to said gamer.

    Oh MY!! my 296 is low hanging fruit for this challenge!

    Here is a funny kind of back story to that record: the people who put scores up in those days mostly went for score, not so much lines and the movie ecstasy of order wanted people who were world record holders. So my getting of that wr was less a function of me being "really into lines" as it was me attempting to poach my way into the movie, which happily worked!

    Now as they say, the rest is history and I think some of the rollers (who DO now care about lines a lot) could get like 500! Im going to try to get them into it.

    Or I guess I could try to get 20 dollars... nah, one of them deserves it :)

    Thats awesome Ben! Thanks for sharing that.
    So far 3 people, @MylesTheGreat , @MegaTech , and @Eric Tolt have beaten your TG record of 296 lines. Right now Mr Tolt is in the lead with 312 lines. 3 months left, does anyone have the skills to take down Tolt's monster line score? Only time will tell.
    If I may, how did you first hear about the movie being filmed? How was it you first got involved?

    Now that I am semi competent with rolling I will try to get a lvl 31 or higher. Maybe if I get high enough it’ll turn Eric off and he won’t try again, but I have my doubts.
