Welcome and Games List


Welcome to the new season of the High Score Club :waving:


Join straight in as we have a Pre-Season round 0 already running. Post your favourite games here and I'll used them for polling for each round.

Usually rounds are 2 weeks starting on a Wednesday. Very informal here, good fun with a bunch of players of all abilities so no excuses for not joining in ;)


Any questions or technical problems please post and someone will help. Emulator users welcome. The Beginner's Guide has links and lots of info too.


Have a great 2024 everyone, hope to see some new players too ;)




p.s. If there's a particular game you'd like to see in the first poll let me know...

My revised list, with the games we actually played last year removed and a couple new random entries added. Since the world currently is all about war, my nomination for an early poll entry would be Operation Blood.


Operation Blood

Mad Stone
Joe Blade
Dimension X
Bug Attack
Misja / Fred
Questar IV
