The Stuff

  • Make it trivial for a skee ball game that's not allowed for the Vault
  • Somehow this one gets accepted to Vault
  • Enjoy purgatory in the Gruefood.
  • Forget the rules about providing a Homebrew on the site
  • Realize you're going to get rejected cause the author doesn't provide the damn ROM.
  • Damn.
  • Provide a 16k encode for no reason.
  • Question life once more


Masterjun: I was promised a ball but it was a rectangle... Judging.

Masterjun: So I read the original patent of Skee-Ball and it turns out the playing body doesn't have to be a ball at all! It says "to be played with a ball or projectile". However, it also says "will give to the player a considerable amount of exercise". We know lifting a rectangle is easier than a circle, so I have to reject this submission on the grounds that not enough exercising was being done.
