    I'm clearing out some games

    I think it's time to clean out some of the games... those that don't seem to work properly, those that are cheatable, and those that aren't very popular.

    I've used the "Your 5 Favorites Games" thread to whittle this down to the ones listed below. If your favorite is on the list to be booted, make your argument here to keep it.
    MahJong will be replaced with a different one.

    KEEP:
    Slingo Para Dice
    Fruit Smash
    Mahjong (New)
    Yahtzee
    Tetris
    Pool Jam
    Frogger
    Alpha Force
    Connect 4
    Simon
    Asteroids
    Ball of Madness
    Pac Man
    Breakout
    Chopper Challenge
    Bug
    Space Invaders
    Deuces Wild
    Golf
    Black Jack
    Battleship
    Solitare
    Hexxagon
    Moon Lander
    Bowling
    Deal or No Deal

    BOOTED:
    123 Go
    Centipede
    Cribbage
    Smack the Penguin
    Pinball
    SD-Pong


    I'm not saying we can only have 20 games, but if we kill those that don't work and aren't popular, we can add some new games to try. It just seems wasteful to keep games that don't work or aren't popular.
    Oh Grigor. You silly man.

    I will say that getting rid of SD-Pong will give me a lot more free time!

    Bless you for keeping mahjong. And bless those who enjoy Ball of Madness.

    Kirkus, it would be cool if you could replace "smack the penguin" with this more advanced "penguin" game:

    So this should mean that my pinball all-time high score is safe, yes? Yes? Yes!

    No Battleship or Solitaire? I wasn't aware there wasn't a problem with either of them, except for Solitaire having two jacks of clubs.

    I'd really hate to see either go, kirkus. The rest are totally kickable.

    Does that mean that they'll get kicked this month and we'll lose those scores (e.g., Bowling and DOND)?

    Perhaps "B*tch Slap the Penguin?"

    Keep: Solitaire.
    Reason: I want to keep it.

    I could argue it helps with achieving world peace, but you know as well as I do that's bullcrap. It's just one of those things I do like to play every now and then. Just because it did or did not make my top-5 doesn't mean I want it to vanish.

    Unfortunately only games from a specific company are compatible with our system.

    Can you reveal where you get them? May be we can come up with some suggestions...


    P.S. I would assume both penguin games have the same original source.

    I think there will be a lot of people sad to see Moon Lander go. It's a game that's really popular with a lot of the less thorough arcadians, like Jessie, for example. I could see Jessie raising hell...

    Yes, but cheating is not easy. The cheating can get competitive
