Damn, I think you might have gotten 10k in just Lococycle! Seriously though, Eric probably needs to fix this before the weekly charts run or people will get their 10k a week badges and he'll have even more stuff to undo. On a holiday weekend too, isn't that how it always goes?

I have a question. On pg 3 the square info states

Raise Your Gamerscore by 10000 over the Month (Aug) (Not Retro)

Does that mean that anyone that has not done this by end of today is eliminated?

Question:

If Episode 1 of The Wolf Among Us counts as completing an Arcade Game, could completing each episode count as a different arcade game?

Not sure where I can find 10 arcade games to complete...

And honestly, why not look at each episode as an individual game? It isn't like episode one is a huge amount of story and gameplay, while each followup is just 20-30 minutes of clicking.
Well after thinking about it. I'm going to stop trying to finish squares. I don't want it to come down to who can post the fastest. I can save the points for some other time. Good luck to those that will be there in the end

I thought we were waiting on the final slot to be filled by futiles or hotdog and I thought hotdog called it in post #335, but he could have easily just been messing around. At this point, I'm just check in to see if anything is still progressing. What I'm trying to say is, "I understand where you are coming from Nightmare"

It will not come down to who can email the fastest (as we talked about a few pages back).

Once we get to the next round a lot of people will be fighting to get the bonus so they don't have to complete Forza, if you have already done that then you are ahead of the crowd.

As far as the arcade games go, I stated that they must be the base score to count as a completion and DLC didn't count.

I would hate to see anyone stop at this point in the competition, but I can't stop you. It's like Navy SEALS training, you either want to be here or you just ring out. Whomever finishes strong will have at least something to show for it.

Those of you that want to opt out, no issue here. I apologize that it was such a grind. Future efforts will be better tailored.

I never really understood the mad rush to VINGO right away...

I was waiting to see what the bonus would be, but then three people VINGO'd, and we were told never mind on the bonus this round.

If I had previously completed the original arcade before contest start and now complete all the dlc, does it count as a completion.

I'm reading back through the entire thread, mainly because this has gone on so very long, and Fshguy's recent comment made me thing I did something wrong. Fshguy said,

It just means finish a game. If you had 900 points and finished it, do that 3 times. Or if you had 150 in an arcade game just get the other 50. Finish games, that's it.

Btw, I noticed this..
There will be another competition announced next week that will make some of you happy. It is one game and one game only. Tournament style and you can probably guess where this is going, if you know what's coming around the corner!

I believe the finish you are referencing Kaens is the square for "finish up (not 1K) 3 games in a week."
