The Gobblet: The Ultimate Donkey Kong 3 Competition
« on: October 01, 2020, 12:00:05 am »
Presenting the Gobblet
A Donkey Kong 3 Competition like no other.

I decided to run this competition because I was tired of Donkey Kong being the Only game singled out getting all the love. So I decided to single out Donkey Kong 3, and hold a tournament with my own money. This year was a really good year for me, and I can pull this off.
I will be quasi competing. I will not register, but I'll submit what I call a ghost score. A score that will have no bearing on the competition, and will be in Italics with no place attached to it. So even if I have the highest score I will not be Champion. That honor will go to someone else.
As you can see, the way I'm awarding the prize money is extremely different. I think that more than a handful of people deserve money as a prize. If my system is disagreeable to you, you can always donate to first, second, or third place or whatever to make things more normal. But it's my money, and this is how I'm distributing it.
The details
This competition will begin the day before Thanksgiving at 6PM Eastern November 25th and end December 6th 11:59 P.M.  Eastern
Game must be completed before that time.
No holding onto a score more than 24 hours

Thanks for doing this George.  Looks fun, I'll join in.

Seeing as how the current 5-man Difficulty 3 HSL only has four scores on it, that leaderboard will be HYPE at the end of the year.

Tried a few of these last night.  Excellent though brutal variation for a tourney.  Games are quick and each death is extremely meaningful which definitely adds to the fun for me at least. 

Thanks for doing this one George, looking forward to it.

There's interest from people who have multi cabs to be in the competition. What would you think of me allowing Muti Cabs in the Conroy competition?

It's your thing. Do what you want. But I would make sure they can verify they're playing on the correct settings.

I've tried to make DK3 a little more Gobbly :) (draft)
 Maybe the flowers could be cranberries (I don't know much about Thanksgiving !)
