Frenzy World Record of Paul Dean - December 4, 2005
Mark Smith of Shelby, NC, United States has lost his 1983 golden era
Frenzy Title of 4,804,540, to Paul Dean, 4,874,931, of Riverside, CA, on
December 4, 2005 at the Totally Amused Classic Players Reunion at Humble, Texas.
This classic era players reunion and competition was run by Dwayne Richard,
Famous for many world record titles, and Walter Day, founder of Twin Galaxies.
This 41 hour game was grueling and probably will not be matched in the future
unless another Iron Man comes around in the next 20 years. Mark Smith held his
title for 22 years, as his score was a tough score to beat because of the time
involved to marathon this title. Dwayne Richard and Walter Day confirmed the entire
Frenzy Game, and the Four Roll overs in which a referee must be present at all
times to confirm this difficult to follow game. When ever there is a roll over
present, there must be triple checks on the score to make sure it is legitimate.
This score was made the official world record on December 4, 2005 by Walter Day.
