Just as an idea

As you publish leaderboards for the current challenges, could you place the end date in brackets after the title?

Would save lots of scrolling through previous pages to find it.
Just a thought...

1. The Saint - 98550
2. n-g-m = 84650
3. Cusser - 81250
4. Fierybirdything - 79200

So FBT has been dethroned as the reigning 2 time Retro Champion and has been replaced by The Saint - his maiden title :)

Congratulations The Saint, you are the RETRO CHALLENGE CHAMPION OF THE WEEK!!!

As we near the end of year, here are the standings with just 2 challenges left to acquire points.

1: cs4mps - 45 pts
2: n-g-m - 42 pts
3: Fierybirdything - 35 pts
4: Lord Innit - 24 pts
5: The Saint - 17 pts
6: Travesty - 3 pts
7: rollerxcore - 2 pts
8: Cusser - 1 pt
9: gingerraccoon - ? pts (awaiting confirmation of Sm64 screenshot)

Here are the current standings on the last two challenges...

Donkey Kong
1. Lord Innit - 7700
2. The Saint - 7400
3. Schlibbylibby - 7000
4. n-g-m - 6700
5. Fierybirdything - 5000

Castlevania
1. The Saint - 1560

The Saint is looking well placed to pick up some points right at the death although Lord Innit has posted a mighty DK score that will take some beating.

Can n-g-m somehow squeak into 1st place or will the other participants shatter his dreams? Stay tuned and keep posting those scores.

Here are the current end dates to save you from scrolling back and forth...

Donkey Kong - Ends 15th December
Super Castlevania IV - Ends 29th December

Now it's time to reveal the first challenge that will kick off points for the 2020 leader board...

PACMAN

Nice and easy:
1 life only
Finish Stage 1
Highest Score wins

This challenge is now live and finishes on January 12th 2020
