If all goes as planned, come mid-October my mancave should be complete. Then I will knuckle down. Right now, I just don't have the time and energy to get back into shape (mainly mental) enough to go for 1m+. Having a completed mancave will greatly incentivize/encourage me.

I love it. Go, sirs.

But first, I've got a few more "In The Dark" Event #4 rules to violate.  Quality DQ time and such.

I'm not talking about Dairy Queen.

Oops, as the 8th DKO begins, I realized that I never updated this thread with the most recent million.  :P

It wasn't his long-sought 1.1, but Dan Desjardins finally got the rollover, won a tournament with it, AND earned a Kong Off 4 spot! That's a lot of business taken care of in a single game and has got to feel pretty sweet.

As anybody who has watched him stream knows, Dan has been grinding hard for years, so this was well deserved, and a long time coming. Congrats!

Thanks Chris. Yeah several times I was this close )( to just throwing in the DK towel and moving on. Feels like it took way to long but I am happy to get it done. I'll be trying 1.1 pace in this DKO and see where it gets me  Kreygasm

Graham Hawkins takes the count up to 30!

2015 is a weak year for first killscreens, but it's shaping up to rival 2013 for first millions.

11 years ago this month Steve Wiebe became the first player to roll DK.

It's definitely been interesting to watch an achievement that was once considered astounding become practically routine. At Funspot VII, <Billy> was able to fearlessly place a $10,000 bounty on a score like the one Graham just got, and at least one player at the time (<Tim>) believed that ANY seven-digit score was flatly impossible on unhacked ROMs.

It's a real testament to the power of information-sharing and that strange "hundredth monkey effect".

I predict one or two more coming before the end of the year, but we'll have to wait and see!  <popcorn>

The Race to 1 Million was a success! I decided to wait until after the event to update this list with the winners, and I guess 9 days is suitably "after". Kappa

Andrew Barrow made it first, 5 days into the running, after what he described as a hard grind. (Wow, was that really 27 days ago already?)

Three days later came the mysterious "Mr. X" John McCurdy, who emerged from the proverbial shadows to participate in the event and hit the second prize.

Others making attempts included Jeremy Young, Scott Cunningham, Tanner Fokkens, Jason Corey Brittain, Andrew Gardikis, and myself. We all came up short. I'm sure we'll get around to it. :)

Even with this event providing incentive, and two players emerging victorious, we're still one new millionaire from tying 2013 for first-timers. Get to it, fellas!

Just after setting a world record on the Donkey Kong "hard" hack (and promptly getting Lakeman'd by Copie :D ), Tanner Fokkens got down to business and pulled off his long-awaited 1M on the real thing!

2015 is now tied with 2013 for most first-time millions...
