Twin Galaxies Video Game & Pinball Book of World Records by Walter Day

Note: The following has the spelling errors from the Original edition corrected.

To ascertain what scores in video games are actually world records, a nation wide competition was held under the auspices of Twin Galaxies with Walter Day as coordinator, across the continent.

The results of the competition are in the accompanying chart. The winners and their scores have been verified by qualified judges. This was the first competition of this kind and plans are to continue this under the same auspices annually.
