John Walti showed up last Wednesday for our Robotron: 2084 tournament. I may have had a slight home field advantage since I’m familiar with the particular quirks of my Robotron, so we played his choice of rules. Difficulty level 7, extra man every 20k points, winner of 2 out of 3 games wins the match. To limit the time, the winner of the first game was defined as the first player to reach 1 million points, the winner of the second would be the first to reach 2 million, etc. We managed to complete two games in under two hours, thanks the point limits. I was quite pleased to win the first two games; the first just barely and the second by a slightly larger margin. It was very tight though and he was ahead of me as often as I was ahead of him.
