Only just now doing the stats on this as the wiki is getting a lot of activity.
*Mine Storm has been THE most played game every single year...until *this* year. An upset! Ok, so it was a tie: Mine Storm, Asteroids and Every Day is Halloween all tied for first place with three players each as the most played games. Then second place was Vector Pilot, Polar Rescue, Solar Wars, Fortress of Narzod, Scramble, Release and VeCaves with two players each.
*It was quite a close total of original vs. modern day homebrews (with 35 games being played total): the number of original released (and one unreleased of Dark Tower) was 17 whereas the number of homebrews played was 18.
*People played from at least four countries that I know of: the U. S. A., Canada, Germany and UK. Does anyone know where Piepsi Panic, Levi, Mandel Ilagan and Wesley Marcos live? I don't know those people (talked to Piepsi once before I think but I don't know where he lives).
Lets plan things a few weeks in advance for November 1st. On this day you will:
1. Get up (probably/hopefully) 2. Go to work (probably/hopefully) 3. Actually DO some work (again, probably...) 4. Go back home (everyone say it with me: "well, just as long as there isn’t a nuclear war...") 5. Play some Vectrex!
Yes, this is the day that we celebrate the anniversary of the release of the Vectrex of November, 1982. Here you’ll play the unique vector machine and make a record of what you played, along with any extras you might wish to add, such as photos for the event (which the rules can be seen here).
Be there unless a nuclear war prevents it.
Feel free to copy and paste and spread the word!
VectrexMad! and Oliver at the Vectrex Museum have been notified.

Damn, hope this is just a slow start Usually the non-U. S. people are the first since they're several hours ahead, but here the Day's a little over halfway over here and nothing's been added to the wiki page. (I usually don't do anything until the evening myself.)
