    WELCOME TO THE
    carnival-2019.jpg
    Where the valiant die many times, and cowards never taste of death but once. The week of March 25 through April 1 celebrates Tetris's greatest mode, T.A. Death, and this year's DEATH TOLL.

    The rules are simple: you play Death Mode, you die, you post your best score here, repeat, and die again. The total levels achieved by the community will become this year's DEATH TOLL.

    Scores from TAP, MAME, Texmaster, Nullpomino, and any other clones and emulators are accepted, as long as they're played with the proper Death settings (correct speedcurve, TAP randomiser, no floorkicks, ARS, 1 preview, no hold).

  9. Got a 444 and decided to post it just because it's a cool number. We'll see if I manage to get something better before the end of the week. :>

     
  10. 661 is so close to the death number[​IMG]
     
  11. Only had time for a few games today. Though I'll up the toll for now to get the ball rolling. :D

    Death Toll +337
     
  12. Not sure I'll beat this throughout the rest of the week. It'll be disappointing for a day 1 best though.

  13. Oh man I could almost taste the victory

  15. 541! First M! Can't get the time, the screen faded out as I was trying to snap the pic.
     
  16. Just put some weights on the p2 start button if you have one, then the game will always stay on the end screen, but you can still start new player 1 games.

  18. First run so far that's better than last year's submission, looking to post a new PB at some point.

    EDIT: It's 294, not 296, oops. I can count to at least 296, I swear!
