Retro Game Challenge #1 - 7th of April 2010

During my last visit at Gotland University, I arranged a retro game competition. The participants didn't get to know which games and what rules there would be in beforehand, and only revealed to them for each round.

The challenger that scored the highest last round would be the first one out the next, and the second best would be the second to play and so forth. This so there would be a handicap for those who came in last.

For this to be fair, we began with a game most people already knew.
