Since this is the first round after a break of a couple of weeks, I'm letting this one go for a few extra days. The round ends Sunday December 20.


Please take note of a rule change for this season. Since the "master list" of high scores has been updated, I am bringing back the bonus points for beating the previous high score (when there is one). ANY player who submits a score that is higher than the top score listed in the master list will receive a 5-point bonus in the standings points awarded at the end of the round. So if you were the 3rd best score that round, but you still beat the previous high score, you would receive 15 points for 3rd place, plus 5 more as a bonus. This week is the only time that I'm going to point this out, as it is listed in the short list of "rules" that is now included in the OP.


Have fun!!!

I'm pretty mad at myself for not taking part in either HSC this round. Bubble Bobble is one of my favorite NES games.
