My sources downwards below state that it started on March 8, 1990 in the
Fair Park’s Car Building
in
Dallas,
Texas
and went on for months through 29 different cities (two events being in LA, California) within the United States until the m finals on Dec vii, 1990 at
Universal Studios Hollywood
in
Los Angeles,
California. So this contest took over viii months and 29 days. —Marioluigi98

Can someone verify that 26 aureate cartridges were made? I’m pretty sure there were 50 made, not 26.

I believe you’re referring to Nintendo Campus Challenge 1991 which only had 50 made.

I can verify that the St. Paul contestant in the 11 and under age grouping was Andrew Luers, based upon the official Contestant Information flyer provided to finalists at the Nintendo World Championships. You can see a scan of this flyer here:

The list of finalists and winners is a regular target for vandals who put other names in the list. It’southward accurate, and it’s final, per the scan of the official finalist listing

Since this game is then rare, wouldn’t it be prudent to brand mention that the AVGN has both the gold and the greyness version?

None of what yous said has any proof in information technology. In the AVGN episode (also large fan!) it is not shown who owns which cart. Also, I don’t recollect any class of a source for a cititation would be advisable. Wikipedia would probably delete the video every bit a source, no matter if on YT, or Cinemassacre, or any other of the 100, 000, 000 sites that bear AVGN videos. Also if information technology was mentioned, it should exist called James D. Rolfe (a.k.a the Angry Video Game Nerd). Not just AVGN.

Hi. Those link back to the AVGN episode themselves. The event, pointed out past Kelton2 is that their appearance in that the episode itself does non evidence who owns the cartridges. We need a
reliable source
that states who actually owns those things. —Jtalledo

I’ve had to rewrite the section in question in a less tabloid and more encyclopaedic fashion since it didn’t seem advisable. I besides didn’t run into the need to point out that one of the bids was at ~$30,000 since the concluding bid was ~$99,000. Why point that out equally notable? Cheers

That article was, in itself, an deed of defoliation and is thus now a redirect to this one. It was not a valid article, as its contents are redundant to this one except for additional
WP:GAMECRUFT
WP:GAMEGUIDE
WP:TRIVIA; and considering the subject is inherently limited in scope as role of the overall series and can’t be expanded. Also, your proposed title is wrong because the yr is non part of the bailiwick’s proper name. Thanks. —

  • Oppose

    this article seems to cover both the 2015 and 1990 events. All the same, I will annotation the history of this article shows a vastly different commodity in January 2014 ; so at that place is a mess here. —

  • I’thou surprised that these aren’t simply 2 dissimilar articles, seeing as how little the 2 events actually have to do with eachother likewise the proper noun. I’m a flake confused well-nigh this move request, though, but if information technology means to dissever the article up into two articles (one for the 1990 event and one for the 2015 issue), I am all for information technology. Unless, I assume Nintendo isn’t planning to make this a yearly matter, right? That would create fifty-fifty more confusion, though I guess a possibly overview folio should exist made from scratch and so. ~

The in a higher place word is preserved as an archive of a

Please do not alter it.

Subsequent comments should exist made in a new section on this talk page or in a

If this article is going to be virtually both the 1990 NWC and the 2015 i, shouldn’t there likewise be some mention of other related events similar the 1991 Campus Claiming and the 1994 Powerfest?

Shouldn’t a section like that be in there? A section for which games they used? I’ll effort to write something up if someone gives me approval(of course I’ll show information technology here first).

Hullo, I don’t sympathise these sentences :


Three 1990 World Champion titles were given. Erin Schroeder won in the 11 and under category, Thor Aackerlund won in the 12–17 category, and Robert Whiteman won in the 18 and older category.[10]

At that place was no official competition round to crown a unmarried winner. However, afterward the competition ended at that place was an informal face-off between the three winners, with Thor Aackerlund taking get-go identify, Jeff Hansen taking second, and Drew Dawson finishing third.


The first one names the three winners. The second ane states that “the three winners” have an informal face up-off and out of the three names here, only i is the aforementioned as the 3 winners in the beginning judgement.
