My game choice is Trog.  I decided to pick a favourite from one of the old tournaments and Trog's a nice, quick game to pick up and play.  Give it a few more tries if it doesn't hook you right away - it's a grower.

Default settings are:

Difficulty: 5 (medium)
Lives per play: 3
Extra man every: 500000
Number of extra men: 2
Complex eggs: yes

In Mame, either hit F2 to get into the settings screens or delete cfg/trog.cfg in your Mame directory.

Trog: 2177745


The "DS!" entry is for this year.  The "DAS" ones are from last time.

Might be easier with a table for the scores in the first post.  You can cut and paste directly from Excel/Calc if you're keeping track of these in a spreadsheet.

Trog is one of the hidden gems I found when it was in the comp... Great game... Not sure if I can say the same about frenzy... Again... No promises but I will try to play some games this year :)

Oh and happy new year everyone :)

with Trog, i remember that game in the past there is that bonus type round where you transform into a big T.Rex and eat as many cavemen as you can in the time limit.. did anyone ever manage to eat all of the cavemen before the time ran out, assuming it's possible?  i remember coming quite close in the past but never managed it myself
