70 Hour Q*Bert World Record Attempt Ends In Fatigue.

Sadly George Leutz’s second attempt to tackle the World Record Score for Q*Bert ended after a Herculean 54 hour marathon at Richie Knucklez in Flemington, NJ. His first attempt back in April met a disastrous end when a power cord was bumped on another arcade game which resulted in the Q*Bert machine that George was playing to reset.

This is no end for George’s attempt at that World Record mind you, he is going to try it again in July! That is the measure of a video game champion, friends!
