This same thing was perpetrated by humblegunner’s father on him as a kid.

It was however a bit trickier since the game was Pong.........

Reminds me of when I played an all night session of lasertag. Every game, the same guy had the high score and had a squad of 5 flunkies covering for him.

By the end of the night, we had him figured out and 10 of us banded together to knock him out of high score for the last games of the night. He and his flunkies acted like it was for real and it was great fun taking him down for the last 3 games of the night.

Some friends and I were playing paintball against a team from a local SWAT squad. We creamed them and I have never seen such a display of childish behaviour, bad sportsmanship and hostility to this day. They acted like babies and the manager had to intervene to put an end to their chest thumping and throw them off the field.
