Powerball High Score
01/02/06 01:05 Filed in: Random Stuff
Don't know if you've seen what a Powerball is, but they're funny things. Once you pick one up, they're very hard to put down again.
The thing is marketed as a solution for people who suffer from R.S.I. (I should add that I don't), or do sports and want to improve their arm/hand strength and co-ordination (a bonus in martial arts). Whilst I treat such claims with a healthy degree of scepticism, I do have to say that it is good fun to play with (and you can feel your arm/hand muscles working). Back in October, I got roped in when I first played with somebody else's. I ended up buying my own.
Whilst I haven't played with it solidly (apparently, I have a life), I have now managed to work up a respectable score - 11,055. It used to rank quite reasonably on the main high score table, but now wouldn't get an honourable mention.
If you've got one of these things and can beat me (probably not a hard thing to do), I'd be interested to know your score.
