Twin Galaxies International
Video Games Masters Tournament - 1984 Rules

Video Paradise was greatly involved in supporting Walter Day in the early days of the Twin Galaxies International Scoreboard. The images below are the official rules governing video game play for the 1984 Video Games Masters Tournament.

There were 60 games in 1984. The high scores were submitted to the 1985 Guiness Book of World Records.

These rules were in effect for the 1984 Video Game Masters Tournament. At the time I made "notations" based on discussions with Walter. Some were to correct errors, some to modify information given to me by Walter after the printing of this document.

Note that the comment about a photo being required for Pole Position I was to prevent someone from submitting a bogus score. Apparently we did not follow that rule ourselves (in hindsight, I wish we had). I think that I probably suggested this rule to Walter and he agreed. It was expected that no one besides Mike Klug or Les Lagier could get the highest score (and 30+ years has proved that was right on).

Remember, this is HISTORICAL, it is not today's rules which are more involved and somewhat different.
