Nibbler Marathon Top 10 Scores

In the process of researching the scores for Nibbler to see just where Mitchell Meerman’s scores ranked against other competitors, it was discovered there was no real current list of 10 ten Nibbler scores or what the scores were. We could onlyl easily find the top 3 scores set within the last 3 years.

In the effort to provide a better historical look at the scores and where people rank on a Marathon run of Nibbler, we created the following list with source of scores attributed. We hope this is an assest to others.

This article has been updated to reflect Enrico Zanetti’s score, set in 1984. When this article was originally created in 2014, the score was not reflected on the Twin Galaxies books or database (I believe at that time the database was still being reconstructed). I am not sure when the database was updated to add his score into the mix as I had always been told previously that he hadn’t been officially added to the scoreboard because it wasn’t a verified score. 

Score Player Name Score Location/Record Listing Location
1,231,372,670 Rick Carter CAGDC
1,042,774,470 Elijah Hayter Aurcade
1,041,767,060 Tim McVey Twin Galaxies/Record Setter
1,001,073,840 Enrico Zanetti Twin Galaxies
883,402,770 Dwayne Richard Twin Galaxies Official Video Game & Pinball Book of World Records
838,322,160 Tom Asaki Twin Galaxies Official Video Game & Pinball Book of World Records
390,156,320 Marc Wertheim Twin Galaxies Official Video Game & Pinball Book of World Records
 251,169,160 Mitchell Meerman Video Game Scoreboard

People have made a good point on Enrico. I will try to find the official score and where it’s been listed so we can add it to the list.

When the article was originally created, Enrico’s score was not in the Twin Galaxies Database. We will update to reflect this.

It was later revealed that the circuit boards used in his game were analyzed and found to have a timing problem that created an unfair advantage by speeding up certain parts of the game allowing him to arrive at a top score much sooner, and were estimated to shave multiple hours off of Richard’s marathon game session time.

One of the more interesting and easy to overlook aspects of McVey’s pursuit is the length of time that passes between each new attempt to marathon Nibbler.
