Record-Seeker Restarts 70-Hour Assault On All-Time Q*Bert Mark

Record-Seeker Restarts 70-Hour Assault On All-Time Q*Bert Mark


Last month, George Leutz set out to topple a high score nearly 28 years old: Q*Bert‘s all time mark of 33,273,520. It’s believed that it would take playing for 70 hours on a single quarter to beat that score. Halfway into it, someone kicked a power cord, (seen above) and all of Leutz’s work was lost.

Well he’s not going to let that be the end of his shot at glory. Beginning tonight, Leutz is back at it again, where his first attempt ended in tragedy – Richie Knucklez Arcade Games in Flemington, N.J.
