Dust off those VHS copies of The Wizard, this November Retro Con and Too Many Games are bringing back the Nintendo World Championships! We have access to a reproduction of the same carts used at the national event in 1990. For those that aren’t familiar with the contest, it was a live event held in dozens of major cities across the country. Players had 6 minutes and 21 seconds to amass the highest score they could manage. The first feat was to collect 50 coins in the original Super Mario Bros, then the game would jump to a specially designed course of Rad Racer which the player needed to speed through as fast as they could, and finally the last segment was Tetris where the player finished out their remaining time.
