In support of the WPU scoreboard started in November 2012 by GUS from the great down-under, the Guidebook is sponsoring a 4 month gauntlet.

What is the WPU, it’s an online global community of Williams players who play for the personal challenge and to help other members of the community to better their skills at these masterful classics.

  • We are aware that our favorite games are 30 years old, and very few of us have access to real machines.
  • Therefore the contest is available to all people around the world with internet access and any platform to play the original games (ie multi-boards, real hardware, Mame, JROK, XBOX are all valid choices)

Conquering Four mighty Williams classics during the Northern Hemisphere’s winter, can you survive the challenge?

  • What you get for surviving the challenge? Personal prestige, a few new callouses, worn out arcade equipment….and……a T-shirt.
  • To win a T-shirt you have to complete all tasks on at least one game.
  • To win a T-shirt with the most prestigious Iron Man logo– simple: complete the tasks on all four games.
  • Note- the guidebook will pay $5 shipping per shirt which will cover USPS shipping.  If outside the US, you will be asked to cover the extra cost of shipping via paypal.

How do you enter?

  1. Participate in the WPU (www.williamsplayersunite.com)
  2. Get a free Youtube account and a recording device such as a smart phone
  3. Play the various scoring tracks and submit your scores to the WPU, indicating that it is for the Iron Man contest
  4. You must include Full name, mailing address (if playing for t-shirt), youtube name, youtube link to gameplay, and the 3 initials to be used for the scoreboard entry.  GUS, at the WPU, will document your scores and feed them over to the guidebook for posting.
  5. The honor system is important, and we are all playing as friends, be fair as your only competition is actually yourself.  Have fun and play well.  If you can’t abide by those simple rules you will be removed from the competition.
