New World Record Set on Tapper!
Bill Rosa set a new world record (pending verification) on the Bally Midway classic Tapper in a 24 hour marathon session at Full Blast Arcade in North Ridgeville, OH on February 8th, 2019 with a score of 14,826,200 beating the previous mark set by Lauren Featherstone at Free Play in Arlington, TX on July 25, 2017 of 14,000,600. Rosa's run ended when the tap control jammed and the owner scored a point in the midst of trying to fix it after disconnecting the control panel and flipping it over to un-jam it. With a belief that Twin Galaxies would rule any points score by someone other than the player would invalidate the run, it was decided to stop the game there to verify the board. Congrats William Rosa!

Arcade Wars! February
This month's Arcade Wars game is the first fighting game we've featured - Samurai Shodown VI: Tenkaichi Kenkakuden! (Try saying that 5 times fast) :)

While Galloping Ghost Arcade has pulled ahead by 1 game in the overall standings, 1UP Arcade Australia in Brisbane, Queensland has some very talented fighting game record holders looking to even things up.

For those unfamiliar with Arcade Wars, players at 1UP Arcade (in Brisbane. Australia) compete against gamers at Galloping Ghost Arcade in Brookfield, IL in a battle to set the highest score on a different game each month.

Anyone can participate, and players have until the end of the month to come into either location and submit their best scores on this game, as usual. We hope to see regulars and newcomers alike come in to attack this game!
