Finkel's Million Point Challenge
« on: November 15, 2020, 06:20:59 pm »


Announcing a Donkey Kong tournament for all players who have not yet hit 1 million points!

Finkel's Million Point Challenge is a tournament designed to help motivate and push any and all players who have not yet crossed the million point barrier in Donkey Kong. Anyone who has not yet hit 1 million points is eligible to participate. People going for their first kill screen will also have an incentive to play (see prizes below)!

This tournament is free to enter. It will begin on November 20th and will run until the end of 2020. If you are playing on original arcade hardware, you must include a video of your submission. If you are playing on MAME, please include a screenshot and the INP file. I hope to see many of you sign up!   

Prize money will be handed out for various accomplishments throughout the tournament. Here is a breakdown:   

- 1st person to hit 1 million points will receive $50. 
- All subsequent million point scorers will receive $25 each. 
- Anyone who has not yet achieved a kill screen and does so during the tournament will receive $15. 
- 1st place (highest score in the tournament) will receive $25. 2nd place will receive $15. 3rd place will receive $10.   

Good luck! 

-Finkel/Justin

i would LOVE to see at least 1 person break through to the mil, but it would be amazing to see multiple.

An update:

As many know, James "SithofSpades" Cook won the $100 bounty to claim the first million point entry of the tournament. Being the gracious and incredible man he is, he has offered to add $75 to the already existing $25 bounty to the next person who scores one million during this tourney. Remember - the tourney ends when the new year begins. Good luck!

Smartest thing Gary ever said... But I swear I used a Nintendo Certified ROM and I had 2,003 live witnesses and 4 of them will give sworn testimony.
