    Hey everybody!

    I'm pretty new here, I have not been able to find a NES Tetris Game B leaderboard.
    Does one exist?
    If not can someone assist me in creating a track?

    Hey Taylor - I can fund a track for you for Game B variant.

    I'm not a Tetris player, and just did some "background research" on the Tetris scene, learning more about recent feats with 19-5, etc. Could you post how the rules should read here for Type B, and then I can look into creating the track with that content.

    So I think we should have a level 0, high 5. and a lvl 19, high 5

    (personally I actually like the lvl 0 )
    TRACK NAME:
    Game B - Level 0 High 5 - Points
    TRACK RULES
    • Highest points for completing all 25 lines on level 0-high 5.

    • Please note: You must complete the challenge in order to submit a score.

    Could you take a look at the existing rule content for Game A variant and see if any of it should also be included with the proposed B rule set? I'm not familiar with Tetris but I suspect most of the rule stipulations below simply aren't applicable to Type B given the differences between the two, but I wanted to double-check if some should be carried over (eg. free to choose music or silence).

    1 Life Only [Game-A]

    Special Rules: Not that there are any lives in the game, but you get only 1 attempt per game! This is a 1 Player Game ONLY! You're free to not only choose music or silence, but you're allowed to choose what starting level you desire. [Please note, you may also access levels 10-19 by holding the A Button while the selection is over 0-9 respectively, and hitting the Start button. Allowing the demo to scroll through and hitting Start as a line or Tetris is completed, selecting your level and causing the screen to flash when you start, enabling yourself to gain a free line or lines and therefore free points is banned! Your scoring attempt ends when the blocks reach the top of the screen and the Game Over message pops up. If the score rolls over, it will continue to be calculated. Pausing for ANY reason = Disqualification!

    Please note that although this variation is for Most Points, you may submit it as a Most Lines attempt as well.

    To my knowledge the free line glitch does not work on type b. None of the other rules are applicable.

    I would maintain
    Allowing the demo to scroll through and hitting Start as a line or Tetris is completed, selecting your level and causing the screen to flash when you start, enabling yourself to gain a free line or lines and therefore free points is banned! Your scoring attempt ends when the challenge is completed and the name is entered at the high score screen. Pausing for ANY reason = Disqualification!
    In the rules for type b
