Hello all and thanks for letting me in!

I am from Germany and actually not a hardcore gamer, but a collector.
I just added one of the first Donkey Kong Arcades to my collection an found out many interesting details about the early days / versions of Donkey Kong arcade machines. I will try to share them..

Best Regards,
Ekki

Hallo  <HootLove>
In the summer that you came
There was something eating everyone
And the sunshine fund was low
We couldn't greet you with a simple hello

Oh, that is simple (see picture below):

Well, right now I could not even reach the top 300, so it does not matter   :'(

BUT: According to this Forum-rules, a 4 board with US set1 is allowed.

so never say never ;-)

Hi, everyone.

I guess I have very little experience, and am not very good. I’m not sure if I’ve ever gotten past the first stage, having played more consoles than arcades growing up, with few exceptions. I wasn’t alive in the ‘80s, but would love to get better at Donkey Kong, Jr., Mario Bros., BurgerTime, games of that era. The game from that era I’m probably best at is DigDug, having reached Level 8 2-3 weeks back. I can probably get to Level 2-3 on BurgerTime.

I work a demanding job and the arcade with a lot of these games is about a bit more than two hours away. I would love to spend a whole Saturday there the next time I have a Saturday off of work.

I’m not looking to get any high scores or set any records, just to get better and reach as many levels as I can.

Thanks, everyone.

Welcome to DKF! Don't worry about scores and world records...just play what you want to play, how you want to play! And don't be afraid to ask questions. Along with the DK games, we have some some fantastic, world-record-level Dig Dug and Mario Bros. players that hang around here too.

Cool. Thanks for the support. I just want to have fun with this - take it seriously enough to get better, but not too seriously and just have fun with it while improving at the games.
