Lonnie McDonald WR progress in Joust
on 9/23/2011 9:36:46 PM
Lonnie McDonald is trying to roll over the score on as many (dedicated) Joust machines as possible.

Here is a list of locations Lonnie has already visited.

Barcade-Brooklyn, NY
High Score Interactive Museum-Burlington, NJ
1984-Springfield, MO
International Center for the History of Electronic Games-Rochester, NY
Insert Coin(s)-Las Vegas, NV
*Pinball Hall of Fame-Las Vegas, NV (unit was Robotron/Joust multicade)
Galloping Ghost-Chicago, IL
Logan Hardware-Chicago, IL
Klassic Arcade-Gobles, MI
Stella's Lounge-Grand Rapids, MI
Ground Kontrol Classic Arcade-Portland OR
Dorky's Barcade-Tacoma, WA (he did not play on John McAllister's world record setting machine)

Let's cheer him on as he goes for the WR!
Don't forget! He is relying on our Aurcade database to find these Joust machines so if you find a Joust machine that's not in the database, let us know!

Lonnie came to the Galloping Ghost Arcade and rolled the score over here 09/14/2011! A truly awesome Joust player!

Lonnie did an interview shortly after rolling over the score at the International Center for the History of Electronic Games (ICHEG) in Rochester, NY. Here is the clip on YouTube.

The media apologizes in advance for the poor sound quality. Also, if you pay close attention, he gives a free plug to Aurcade!

Lonnie and his WR attempt in Joust
9/23/2011 9:16:21 PM By Clint Wilder
Lonnie McDonald is shooting for arcade immortality on the arcade game Joust.

For full details, click on the link below which leads to the news article.

http://www.examiner.com/arcade-game-in-national/joust-expert-taking-his-classic-arcade-skills-across-the-country

It is also important to note he is relying on our database to find these Joust machines! He even titled this as "The Aurcade Inspired tour"!
Hopefully we'll catalog his success either on here or in the forums!

Check one more off the Aurcade list of Joust machines!

It is a multi-game machine. In great shape , I did find the multi-directional control stick a bit challenging as I had never used one. But hey adapt and over come.

It now shows 9999999 as all Joust Machines should!

Site 50

Hey all,

The tour inspired by this site is at 31 sites rolled over.
My goal is to have 50 by years end.

I'm thinking we need a good location and a Aurcade celebration?

I will be at Kong off in Denver in Nov.
Not sure if that will be site 50.

The run I have in two weeks should put me at 35 to 37 sites/machines rolled depending on availability.

Where do you think site 50 should be?
