Post OFFICIAL 3DS Ambassador NES Games Competition Thread WEEK 2
Week 2 is over (except for a tie-breaker). Details on the tie-breaker -- viewtopic.php?p=151510#p151510

Week 3 games have been posted in a new thread -- viewtopic.php?f=164&t=9306





SCORES for WEEK 2 (pre-tie-breaker) -- download/file.php?id=655




For week 2 you will be competing in Donkey Kong Jr and Wrecking Crew!!
You have until 11:59 pm Saturday October 29, 2011 to submit your hi-score entries, so get to it!

As the title suggests, we here at NintendoFuse wanted to host a friendly, little hi-scores competition for all you 3DS Ambassadors. Of course, little did we know that what we thought would be a simple little contest turned out to be freaking HUGE! So, without further ado, let's get to it!

Image

Since there are 10 NES games available for you Ambassadors, we have decided to split the competition out over the course of 5 weeks. Every Sunday morning, we will inform you of which games are eligible for the hi-score competition that week.

Okay, now we're going to get into prizes/winnings so pay close attention.

We have several prizes to give away over the course of these 5 weeks. Some of the prizes include games, figurines, shirts, and well, there's more.

Each week, the top 3 hi-scorers will be our winners. While all 3 people will receive prizes, the 1st place winner will get the better of the prizes and so on, obviously. You are eligible to win every week if you are willing to put the time into each game.

At the end of the contest, we, the staff here at NintendoFuse will select the 3 Grand Prize Winners. Yes, you read that correctly. Not only can you win FREE stuff for 6 weeks in a row, you can also be eligible to win one of our GRAND prizes! All you have to do is play some games, register on our forums and post your scores! How incredibly easy and fun is that?!

The way this will work is through a random drawing. In order to be entered into the drawing, you must place in 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place each week of the contest. For whomever places in 1st place, you will receive 3 entries into our grand prize drawing. Second place receives 2 entries, and Third place receives 1 entry.

I repeat:

1st Place = 3 entries
2nd Place = 2 entries
3rd Place = 1 entry

The better you do, the greater your chances of winning a grand prize, on top of the FREE stuff you will win during each week. Please note, 1 Grand Prize per person.


Are you ready for these GRAND prizes that I speak of? Okay, here goes. Feast your eyes on these!

RULES

Entries must be in the form of either a video or a picture.
All entries must clearly show your 3DS unit, the hi-score screen, and we must be able to clearly see the hi-score. Please make sure you include a slip of paper with your screen name on it in the photo. See below for a good example.

Image

Your entries must be posted on the OFFICIAL COMPETITION FORUM and you are more than welcome to update your entries throughout the week. So remember, if you see someone has a better score than you, get back on the game and go for higher!

Disclaimer: NintendoFuse reserves the right to change the functionality of this competition at their discretion without any prior warning. Entering this competition means that you accept the terms and conditions of said competition.

* I said it was 'our choice', now quit wondering how. Why are you even reading this? Go and start racking up some hi-scores!

Out of curiosity does it matter if we play game A or B? I'm entering this week for sure and am just curious how that works.

I'm sorry it took me awhile to post the winners. We, the staff all contribute to NintendoFuse in our spare time because we enjoy doing so. We don't get paid for it. We enjoy being a part of the community. That being said, I probably should have made the contest start/end during the week rather than the weekend because it conflicts with time with my family. I had actually typed up the results and drafted my post several hours ago (this morning) but we (my family and I) had plans today. So, I just got back and had time to re-read my post and finally submit it.

I appreciate your patience. If you ever need anything, feel free to PM me or post here in the threads. As I've said before, I will respond as soon as I am able.

One last note. I will not be on here the rest of today or tomorrow. I will be back in the office on Tuesday and will be more active then. If I happen to see a quick question which I can answer quickly, I may. Otherwise, I'll see you guys on Tuesday.

Good luck!

I guess I was right with people sitting. They were sitting with some huge scores. 7th place with almost 200,000? Wow. I actually did better in Yoshi then I expected.

At least I'm in official 1st with DK Jr, with a likely 2nd when Noah posts his score. I'm thinking I'm going to play this week differently.

You could extend this 'week' a few extra days. I also don't like the end on Saturdays, as I have limited times for last minute due to family obligations as well. I think a start on Tuesday and end on Mondays would be much better. So if you were to extend this "week" by 3 days, and/or you could also just not start week 3 for a few days to move it, and we'd have a few dead days.

We could always poll the participants which start/end days during the week would typically work best?

I didnt realize my ice climbers score was topped, but congrats dark bananas hard fought score there.

A couple of questions:

Is the grand prize all three games for the winner?

If its 2 games a week we can not last 6 weeks with only ten games and with both Zelda's part of the ten how will this work? The Zelda games have no score system that i know of. Someone already posted complications that can come with Metriod as well because of the password system. So by my math that leaves 3 games left to last 4 weeks.

On a side note:

LankyKong has 3 entries for the grand prizes
Dark Banana has 3 entries for the grand prizes
PLWilliams87 has 3 entries for the grand prizes

Oreanta has 2 entries for the grand prizes

Taco Nazi has 1 entry for the grand prizes

Um 3 grand prizes, 3 winners you can only win once I assume. If your entries count for all 3 or just 1 I'm not sure...

It's a lotto. So people with "entries" noted, have 1-3 tickets in a hat. When the 5 weeks are up, they (NintendoFuse) will draw from this hat 3 different tickets from different contestants. The person that had the most entries gets to pick one of the 3 grand prizes. The next person with the next number of entries picks prize number 2. The remaining prize goes to the last contestant.

So if you place first on all 10 games (assuming we still do Metroid), you have 30 entries in this hat. There will be 60 of these tickets in this hat, so based on your number of entries, increases your "odds". If you are selected, then you get to pick which grand prize you want. So if you only have 3 entries overall, you will have a 1 in 20 chance to get picked for a grand prize.
