"Bro-Off" Results - 10,777,770!

Wow, am I ever behind on posts!

Sorry for the delay, but I'm guessing most of you have already heard the news on how my NES Mario Bros. game went.

In case you didn't, I managed to break the world record with a score of 10,777,770 points!  The game took over 11 hours to play, but I only lost 2 lives before intentionally ending the game.

I think I could have kept playing all night, but honestly, marathoning video games isn't my thing.  Once I master a game to the point where I can never lose, I get bored. :)

The only reason I kept playing so long was for the cause.  In the process of playing my game, the Bro-Off charity event raised a bunch of money for the American Cancer Society!  It was great to be a part of something bigger than myself, being able to do something I love at the same time.

And I didn't lose too much sleep after the long game either, so it was a win-win. :)

  1. Great stuff as always Tom! Glad to see it was for charity as well. Wish I could have witnessed more of it. :)
