November 17th 2012, 10:00 AM MST - The games have officially (if not literally) begun!
There are no live streams running yet. I have a list of addresses, but none of them are live. Wildcard contestant Jeff Harrist tells me "Streaming is coming. We're still still setting up. The event hasn't started yet." Stay tuned, I will update as soon as this changes.
Jeff also shared this picture from the opening ceremonies:
Festivities are underway, but not yet games.
As for scores, it should be several hours before there are any to report.
In the meantime, a Facebook update from early this morning by Hank Chien:
"A few things made me laugh and smile yesterday.
During a practice session, a Friday night patron at the 1-up told me that Donkey Kong must be a patternable game because it's a 20 year old game. Then he proceeded to tell me that I was still far away from the high score.
Steve Wiltshire said that before he left for Denver his 5 year old son told him (sorry for the misquote): "You're good daddy, but you won't beat Hank Chien." That story made my day!
Good luck and good skill to my fellow competitors. Let the games begin!"
