TG's 40th - From the Archives - George Costanza's Frogger Score

As part of a 40 year retrospective of Twin Galaxies, I'll be sharing new content uploaded to the Twin Galaxies Documentary Archive. Today's selection pitted gamers against the television series Seinfeld.

$1000 Cash Prize - George Costanza's Frogger Score, 2005

In 2005, Robert Mruczek established a $1000 bounty for the first gamer to beat the high score of George Costanza (played by Jason Alexander) featured in an episode of Seinfeld. Although no gamer was able to beat the score during the period of the contest, Pat Laffaye was the first gamer to dethrone George and surpass his fabled score with a new world record of 896,980 in December 2009.
