    Default Highscore Challenge - Super Mario Brothers [NES] - WINNER REVEALED

    Greetings Nerds and Nerdettes. As fellow nerds I'm sure we all have one thing in common, a love of video games. You know what I like? Pointless competitions! As such I am running the first in a series of "Highscore Challenge" events. Each member is encouraged to play a certain game once a month and try to achieve the highest score possible.

    This month on Highscore challenge we are playing Super Mario Brothers for the Nintendo Entertainment System!


    The challenge will run for 1 week starting at 10pm GMT on the 1st of May, and ending at 10pm GMT on the 15th of May. The player with the highest submitted score at the end of the week wins and is crowned EoFF's Super Mario Brothers champion!

    Here are the rules:

    1. Players need to submit a photo of their score and submit it into this thread. You can submit a photo of your score at any point in the game, Scores will be updated on the scoreboard below, so try and one up the top scorer!

    2. The game can be played on any format. My entry is being submitted via 3DS for example.

    That's it really. When scores are submitted I will update the thread and the below score sheet with the scores. Highest score at the end of the game wins. Now for some extras:

    Prize:
    As this is the first in the series of challenges, I am offering a prize to first place. The winner of the Super Mario Brothers High Score challenge will win this adorable Hama bead Mario sprite I will PM the winner when the competition is over to confirm address details and send him on his way!

    Live Skype Challenge:
    Our good friend Jiro has offered to host a Live Run of the game on skype. Players will play the game live with other players via skype and compete to see who can get the best score simultaneously. A date is unconfirmed, however Saturday/Sunday is probably our best bet. If you would like to join Jiro in playing Super Mario Brothers live with other EoFF members, PM Jiro directly with your screen name, and make a post showing your interested in the thread. Players who wish to join in will still need to post a picture of their score In the thread for it to be counted.

    That is it. Have fun trying to achieve the Highest score you possibly can! If you have any questions or I've missed something, let me know and I'll try to sort it out.


    High scores:

    Bubba 1,200,350
    Mercen-X 730,750

    To start of the competition, I have had a crack at the game. It turns out I'm rubbish and could only achieve a pitiful score.

    I died on world 1-3. I doubt that my score will be the high score.

    You don't get points for lives. You'll just be able to play for longer using that trick.

    That method gives you a lot of points too.

    21,900 points each time you do it to be exact. Thank you for bringing it to the attention of the thread flying mullet, now everyone is going to do it.

    I don't encourage the use of this exploit, but it will be pretty easy to spot if someone does use it. Besides, I have a contingency plan in the case of a tie breaker which is likely now that is in the open that there is a points exploit. Something much harder than the current challenge.

    That us a the half way mark, and the NPC scores are still in the lead!

    I wonder how I'll ship the prize to a fictitious character...

    Ooh I didn't realize the deadline was so soon. I'll try to get a score in at some point.

    I'm considering extending the event by a week. Would like to see my own name knocked off the board at least.
