    Arcade Games thread

    We can use this for any discussion about the games I guess. I've gotten 1st in 4/5 events.. haven't played the chopper game much though, it's hard to play with the mouse, are there any keyboard controls?

    Oh yeah, snake gave me a lot of hate in the early games, hehe.

    I think you still have problems with the object of the verb 'to usurp'. You have been usurped, not your titles.

    Baz should stick to mathematics

    u·surp

    v. u·surped, u·surp·ing, u·surps
    v. tr.

    1.To seize and hold (the power or rights of another, for example) by force and without legal authority. See Synonyms at appropriate.

    2.To take over or occupy without right: usurp a neighbor's land.
    I particularly draw your attention to definition #2. My titles have been taken over without right (cos they're rightfully mine and I'll get them back!) therefore they have been usurped.

    I reckon BD's usage was right. Anyways, you know the best to ask about all this? Greg Canfell. He knows everything about this kinda stuff.

    A couple of new top-20 scores have been observed so I have edited the slightly changed standings into the post above. I am also now using green as the colour for cases where a poster passively gains a place as a result of someone else's score being bumped downwards.

    Ignatius Reilly is now one of only three posters to be in the top 20 for every game; the other two are the leaders jase and guybrush. Gobberlerra is in eight top twenties and Alan Shore and Rincewind each six.

    Further edits have been made to the ladder in post 158 after Saragossa claimed eighth place in Moon Lander [edit: and I claimed fifth in Simon.]

    More edits made; Hobbes has climbed through the pack of inactive posters to gain a precarious hold on eighth place.
