I'm going for the Nibbler WR! Starts 12/26, 7 AM CST.

by YoshiEgg25 Wed Dec 25, 2013 7:33 pm

Starting tomorrow morning at 7 AM CST (8 AM EST, 1 PM UTC), I'll be going for the world record on the arcade game Nibbler. The high score is currently held by Rick Carter of Maryland, who has a score of 1,231,372,670 on the game. I am estimating that it'll take me around 48-50 hours of play to beat his record.

The attempt will also be in support of Autism Speaks. There will be a place set up to donate soon.

If you're interested in watching or dropping by to say hi, I'll be streaming it at http://www.twitch.tv/MJMeerman.

If you've got a Facebook account, keep an eye on the attempt's page or on the Star Worlds Arcade page.

Hope to see you guys there! :)
