Shadow Kisuragi, did you also only play Mine Storm on this Day?

Yeah. I literally had 5 minutes before the end of the day, so it's what I tossed on. I didn't get a very high score - 16XXX.
But, I did get it turned on in the spirit of the event this year, considering I missed the past 2.  Shocked

That's good, as it looks like we won't even hit double digits in participants this year :|

I'll see about updating the page soon, just need to hear back from a few others first and then I'll do it all at once.

I got to 20200 in minestorm but I was really trying to get a good picture rather than go for a high score.

Also didn't have much time, really wanted too though. Life has just been busy of late.

Excited to see what you put in the post Vectorguy!

I hear ya, I only got in a game of Berzerk and that was it.

Unfortunately the next Play/Vectrex Day may be suspended next year due to participation falling 50% over last time/we had our smallest gathering as of yet.  I don't think we'll even have double digits as far as those who played anything :|

So, there isn't much to see, although everyone should really check out my thanks to Vectrex people letter that I created.

Should just be another day or so before I put up the majority of stuff that people want me to post for them though.  I'll post about it when that happens, although at least there are several other pics up too.

While I'm not sure how much effort it takes to put together, I would hope that you keep trying to support the day. I'll keep putting up pictures if you keep promoting it.

I know that it can be discouraging when you organize something and not many show up but this year could just be a fluke too. I like that you want people to play the Vectrex. It's about my favorite thing to show people and talk about in my house. Just this last week I got to show it off and talk about it to someone, we set it up for a couple kids to play on and talked about it while they enjoyed the laser sharp images and 60hz hum. Promoting it is something that should be done since it is an uncommon and unique game system, people need to see this thing.

Your 'thanks' letter was very nice.

I was able to pull mine off the shelf and show it off to my roommates, who had never seen one before. I love showing it off, though I need to actually PLAY some of my other titles. I've stopped at Mine Storm because I love the game.

Not a lot, really.

Part of it could've been that it was on a weekday, but they can't all be on weekends!

Your 'thanks' letter was very nice.

Developers--especially those making very good homebrews while making no money from them (Thrust, Nebula Commander)--really deserved it.

I love showing it off, though I need to actually PLAY some of my other titles. I've stopped at Mine Storm because I love the game.

Do you know that Mine Storm has been THE most played original GCE/Milton Bradley game every single year that we've had this Day, hands down?

Of course. It takes the least amount of effort to fire up, and everybody owns it. Cheesy

The page has been updated with all infos and pics (thanks nupoile and Shadow K. for yours).  Here's some stats:

*50tbrd created the Thrust 1.1 overlay download specifically for release on this Day.
*In total, 21 different games were played. The total of the original GCE/Milton Bradley games was seven while the total number of homebrews was 14. The top original games included Mine Storm (with four players total), Berzerk, Hyperchase and Polar Rescue (two each). Homebrews, on the other hand, had only one player each, making this the first time ever since the Day was held to not have a top homebrew.  I would say that's really odd, but then we didn't have many participants.
*Four unfinished/demo games were also played, being Blocks, Robot Arena, Stip and Xylo.  I found Xylo to be really incredible (with a link to the video), especially since I never knew Frank Herbert was working on it (I thought the only unfinished game he had was Berzerk Arena).

Tomorrow!

Don't quote me on this, but there *could* be a little something extra for someone per random drawing.  If someone on here wins (members of my Vector gaming forums and possibly the Facebook group of Vector Fans Unite! are also eligible) hopefully I'll be able to get it to you.  (Don't mean to be so cryptic, but this is a last minute thing.)
