My new challenge:

Play 49 $3.50 Turbos before this Saturday 23:59 ET and make it into the Low and/or High orbit in the Mars division of the Battle of the Planets.

I have already played 51 games this week and my current scores are 774 points in the high orbit and 207 points in my current low-orbit block.

Last week low orbit #50 was 450 points and high orbit #50 was 1467 points.

So I need about 700 more points in the last 49 games which I think I can achieve with 30% average ROI.

Secondary goal is to have one low orbit block of 20 games with 450 points. This is tough and equates to 100% ROI.

I will be reporting games played and points, but not bother with booming exit hands.

Good luck to me.

Another 6 game session played, with great results. 2 first places and a second place = 117 points.

So:
Low current orbit group 117 points with 14 games remaining. looking promising but still tough to get to 450.
High orbit 936 points with 34 games remaining

I need about 16.6 points per game to reach high orbit goal but 23,8 points per game for the low orbit goal.
16.6 points is around 40% ROI and I don't dare to calculate how much ROI is equivalent to 23.8 points!

I'll have to run good. Really good.

Disastrous session 8 games only one #1 and one #3 = 63 points

This low orbit block ended at 255. one block to go
High orbit: 1071 points, 20 games to go

Looks bad for this challenge. And in addition to this, it seems this week higher scores will be needed to make it to a paying position in the leader board. Already #50 (last paying place) is at 1467 which is the same as #50 ended last week. And there are still 2 days to play.

last session done. 8 games 117 points

I think this means my low-orbit ends at 243 points and high at 1314

challenge fail.

I might try this again another week.
