Here is the prize for April! Mario Bros for the Atari 2600.

To win, you just have to guess how high of score I can get when I play this game on my Ustream channel on April 20th. The closest guess to my final high score wins the cart!

My Ustream account is http://www.ustream.tv/channel/focus-on-the-prize

I plan on playing the game around 5pm EST on April 20th and livestream the gameplay for the contest.

Super contest, I'm going to go with 100,000 that seems to me to be where it is at... I have seen Focus play video games and he is good. I also want that Mario Cart Bad!. lol.

The event is on Kerry's birthday so i am not sure if we will be around how ever we will do our best!. :)

This competition is getting close! Focus you should play a few hours of you're Earth Defence Force games before attempting this challenge. If you do I'm confident my 100,000 guess is in the bag!.

I'm hoping the rules are like the American game show of the '70s and early '80s called The Price Is Right. Contestants, near the end of the show, would bid on these collections of prizes (the "Prize Showcases"), which usually included many things for the home, and sometimes would even include a new car. A lot of times, 2 of the 3 contestants would obviously bid too high (which meant you lost), so the third guy would bid $1.00, and he would win because the other two overbid!

Oh yeah... and also because of the absinthe!

Its actually the closest scrore whether it is higher than what I get or lower. Whoever is the closest guess. so if anyone wants to change their entry, just submit a new one prior to the event :)

Oh and I will be sober for the attempt on the 20th........maybe :) It all depends if I find the new hiding spot my wife has for my beloved absinthe.

In that case, I change my guess to 200 points.

Hahaha! just kidding. I'll say 8,000
