    I have just installed an Arcade area on the board (see the navbar above) to give all of you a place to kill some time during what has been a fairly uneventful offseason. It's open to all registered users. If you're a lurker, hopefully this will give you a reason to register and finally open an account here :D

    http://www.patsfans.com/new-england-patriots/messageboard/arcade.php?

    There will be many new games added, so make sure you check it frequently.

    Pretty cool - the only downside I can see is a long drawn out debate about whether or not we want Pacman. ;)

    I have killed myself for hours and have only almost reached half of your score in 'Snake'. My wrist and hand hurt but it is effing addicting.

    Wax Frog got a perfect score in Hexxagon, I didn't even think that was possible. Sort of takes the fun out of it lol.

    You have to enter the tourney by clicking out "tournaments" then click on "register" if there is an open tourney.

    Yep...I had worked that bit out :rolleyes:

    What I'm asking is now that having entered the tournament will the next game of Tetris I play be the one that counts in my match against Keegs ?

    I just looked at it. Yes, it appears you go againts Keegs. Who ever wins moves up and whoever loses is eliminated. There are no "seedings" in these tourneys

    Nice. So I can practice losing fake money on the craps tables here before I lose it for real in Vegas in three weeks. :)

    Bad guess, homeboy.

    Though my total points from 10 games still don't match your ridiculous score.

    3 tips

    1. Start on level 5
    2. Get rows of 4
    3. Don't get greedy

    If you do this your scores will improve :D

    Question... are you playing Snake from a phone or dektop keyboard?? I have big hands so it's hard to make the quick cuts on the big keys. :mad:

    I guessed that's what you did but you still got lucky, I tried the "flaw" maneuver maybe 300 times and never got the computer to make the right move:mad:
