Welcome to Jack Of All Games TV . com

Contestant Page

If you want to be a contestant, here are the quick rule highlights, and at this link is the complete rules. If you want to be able to choose the games you want to show the world you are good at, this tournament is for you. If you want to be like Jamal, an all-around video game champion, this is for you. Unlike Iron Man of Gaming, your fate is in your hands, not in the hands of the general voting public, you're not confined to catch all categories for classic shooter which can be anything from Space Invaders to Halo for the Original XBox, and grumble if you don't like the vote. You bring games to the tournament, the ones you want to play.

You choose the number of games you're good at, and you either get to play one game you picked to be played, or you pick one of your opponents' games to be played. This shows natural ability and factors out practice of games. It's about natural ability. And that's in both the qualifier and the televised portion.

There's a danger of choosing too many of one type of game. If you are out-gamed, your opponent can spot your weakness and pick it. But if you over-pick games, you're more likely to have a weakness. The only thing we ask is a minimum of 5 games, and you must actually own the games, and must be legal copies. Very good life simulator.

The games can be of any type as long as it attaches to a TV, or comes with its own monitor. ANY GENRE, ANY SYSTEM, ANY ERA, FROM THE 2600 TO THE 360 AND BEYOND. The only catch is you must provide the systems, games, regular controllers for 2 players (unless the only game is better with one controller, or you don't have 2 of a controller, in which case, you must alternate.) special controllers, if you wish, and if it's a light gun game, a CRT TV, for all the games you propose. So if you want to play Space Vultures for the Emerson Arcadia 2001, make sure you have an Arcadia 2001 and Space Vultures. You've got 3 weeks to a month to shop at our sponsor, Game Surge in Copley Ohio . In most cases Game Surge saves you against ebay after factoring in paying for shipping if buying, or factoring in ebay and paypal fees if selling. Hurry, buy as soon as you sign up there, Or shop on Ebay if someone beats you to a copy of a game you've been eyeing in the store , or if the game was never in the store. You've got a month to shop for your games you want in the tournament. They can either be original cartridges or discs, or downloads on a modern service.

It will be a free-to-enter tournament, however the more you patronize Game Surge in Copley Ohio once the qualifiers start, the bigger advantage you have over someone who didn't patronize. Patronization include buying from, selling to, or trading with Game Surge. Everyone gets one Jack Chip for every cent profit made by Game Surge for each purchase or sellback. So if a game is bought for $10 and sells for $20, the seller gets 500 Jack Chips and the buyer gets 500 Jack Chips. Everyone, in addition to the Jack Chips they earn, gets additional Jack Chips by participating, equal to the median Jack Chip amount per registered account that is not 0 transactions for a period. Later, once we're on local TV, well give Jack Chip Prizes (the scoring unit in our tournaments) to anyone who either knows a key word or can describe one announced detail from the week's show.

Bring as many games as you want/can. The number of games you bring in multiplied by your current Jack Chip stack, which goes up as you win and down as you lose. This is the power rating. Whoever has the higher power rating in a matchup will have the option for that matchup of either choosing one of their opponent's games or forcing their opponent to choose one of their games.
All you have to do to enter is
1) be 18 or older as of the day you enter, or have parental or guardian's permission and have yourself (or said parent/guardian if under 18) sign that you read and agreed to the rules, 2) Put your best games you own on a list,
3) Give that list to the clerk at Game Surge
4) On future visits that month, bring your games and systems and controllers to Game Surge. If you call ahead and it's currently in their USED stock, they can tell you they have a game and will hold it for an hour so you don't have to bring it. 5) Play at your own convenience throughout the qualifiers, but after a certain date, the top 10 Jack Chip totals will be called in for an interview.

Here are the complete rules to qualify for the Jack Of All Games TV Show.

1. You must be 18 or older or have a parent read and agree to the rules and sign for the minor in order to be a contestant. You must provide your real name with signature stating you read and agree to the rules of the tournament, address, phone number, email address, and any alternate contacts desired.

Everyone starts with one Jack Chip for each cent earned by Game Surge in one's transactions, either buying from them, or selling to them, with trades counting as 2 simultaneous transactions. In addition to any transaction earned credits, the median amount of Jack Chips earned among those with 1 Jack Chip or more in that Transaction Month

3. Visit the Store during any open hours the qualifying phase, and bring any games and systems you want to the store when you play, along with a list of your games controllers and systems, you can play anytime during the month, and declare to the clerk that's you're there to compete. Contestants will be matched on a first-come-first serve basis. And there is a limit of one game against each opponent in a tournament period.

4. There is a minimum of 5 games and no theoretical maximum limit of games that one has and proposes to play except the universe of legal games that are not banned for reasons stated in the tournament rules. Remember the more games you propose and bring, the more likely you have an advantage in a tournament, but the more game choices of yours could be selected by your opponents. One must bring as many games as they feel comfortable playing and actually own in their personal collections, but not too many to have weak games opponents can select.

6. Any time you go to compete, you must bring the following things::
6a. Any games you proposed on your lists. All such games must be attached to a television screen or similar display either by inserting a copy of the game in a machine that is attached to a display, or a self contained device that hooks into a display. (No non-TV games, like board games and physical games that are not attached to a TV or similar display) Portable game systems are allowed, provided it has its own display and you either provide 2 systems and a link cable, or arrange a game so you alternate 5 minute sessions,
6b. Any systems you want to play them on. Note you may coordinate with friends to borrow each other's systems, so each individual carries less equipment.
6c. The controllers best for any of the games on the list individually.
6d. For light gun games and other games with special TV's required, the special TV's.
6e. An idea for a challenge for each game that can be done in either 10 minutes if 2 players go head-to-head, or 2 5-minute sessions if the game doesn't have a 2-player mode or is better as a 1-player game.

7. If you want to increase the number of opportunities to play and advance, come more often, and play multiple times per day.

8. You will be paired off against one opponent at a time, on an as-available basis with one member of the current universe of opponents in the store.

9. Both people present each other's lists. A Power ranking is the number of Jack Chips they currently have multiplied by number of games they propose and bring. The person who has a higher power ranking may either choose to play one of his/her opponents' games proposed, or force his/her opponent to pick one of his/her games.

10. If there are options like characters, tracks, levels, or other selectable options, the non-proposer selects any that both have to agree to, or the first choice if all choices are available, but selecting one thing eliminates a choice for the other, i.e. Characters in the original Street Fighter II or Golden Axe.

11. Whoever has the better perfromance wins Jack Chips. If the person who wins has more Jack Chips than the opponent, they win all chips from the opponent and adds it to his/her score and the loser is eliminated for the month. If the person who wins has less Jack Chips than the loser, the winner receIves one Jack chip from the opponent and doubles up against an opponent. A person who loses in this case has the amount of Jack Chips paid to the winner subrtracted from his/her score, and may continue to compete, but not against the same person for the rest of the qualifier period.

12. When there are only 8 contestants left with Jack Chips, they will be notified they've entered the interview phase, and may continue to compete for the number one spot. Once the expiration date and time of the tournament occurs or when only one person has Jack Chips, first place is declared the automatic qualifier for TV. The remaining 7 are interviewed, have their games analyzed by Jamal and the producers, and 3 of the 7 will be chosen based on a) availability of the number 1 contestant, Jamal Nickens and key staff, b) Game lists so that we have a wide variety of gamers represented in the 4 contestants, and c) miscellaneous factors which determine if they are good personalities for TV. To be the guaranteed contestant, one must win the number one slot. Time of taping to be determined by the producers of Jack of All Games TV Show.
