Love this ruling, Steve. I think it's a good call.

I've always felt that in variations like this, such as no-hammer in DK, that it made a lot more sense to treat these sorts of things as instant game-overs, rather than instant DQs, since the mistake does nothing to affect or invalidate the score achieved up to that point in the game.

(It's also far easier to accidentally hit the POW in MB than to grab the hammer in DK.)

Definitely a better way of doing things

Another good example is single ship Galaga. Your game ends if you double-up, its not a straight out DQ

Good luck to everyone playing!

Oh, that's really interesting.

I can imagine a situation where you could accidentally get sucked in <Allen> to the Galaga beam while trying to avoid a bullet/bug, then screw up the shot to kill your captured ship and accidentally release it. Certainly shouldn't be a DQ of the whole game.

Maybe it's time to get DKF to think about changing the no-hammer rules...  <stirpot>

May not be able to stream today - taking the boy to his grandparents for the weekend - but that means I've got lots of time tomorrow to rock it. Sunday too.

Ugh a weekend full of technical difficulty. This is the best run I was actually able to stream to Twitch. So, my score entry for this round is 160,980pts

I want to thank everyone that participated in this installment of the Mario Bros. Online Open Tourny! We will do another one in 3 months. Please comment what variation you want to do in the next tourny or keep it where it is at. Hopefully we can get more entries in Division 2 to release money and more Division 1 players to come back to the fold(Corey Chambers, Stephen Boyer, George Strain, Tom Votava, etc...) Here are the final score results of both Division 1 and 2....

Division 1 NO POW
Steven Kleisath-1,773,470
Benjamin Falls- 890,400
Perry Rodgers-601,300
Ross Benzinger- I was told by Ben around 600,000 and change

Division 2 NO POW
Jeremy Price-600,530 (Good score Jeremy!)
Chris Psaros-233,860
Benjamin Sweeney-160,980
Jason Brittain-93,530

Thanks Steve, I had fun.

I still have a strange relationship with this game, where if I haven't played in a while, I get frustrated and start whinging about it being un-fun and hard to control. But then, after a few hours with it, something unlocks in my brain, I start getting into a groove, and I find the game pulling at me. I already played twice today. ;D

I'll be back for more next time, prize pool or not.  :)

Thank you Steve!

I do apologize for basically putting up a one-off run on Sunday night. Bad weekend for finding time. This deserved more diligence than that.

On the next round could you include Monday, like a Fri to Mon span? Just spitballin’ here.

I will extend the time frame for a whole week for the next installment which will be in July, and start practicing, because the variation will be......... Ultimate NO POW Hardest as requested a bunch on the MB League FB Page. Shorter games that way, but crazy indeed!  :P

Dang Ultimate No POW on Hardest. I’ll really need to practice that. I’m pretty dependent on standing on the POW.
