What is the MAME ROW?
MAME ROW stands for MAME Random Of the Week. We randomly select an arcade game from the 0.78 MAME Reference Set to play on the week. The idea is to play games we've never played before, interact with other forum members, post hi-scores, share game strategies, fun facts, and (the most important) HAVE FUN!
We usually post hi-scores screenshots after playing with only one credit. If you used more than one credit, please mention it on your post.
There's no need to use RetroPie to join the MAME ROW! You can play it on any platform you want.
Every Monday we create a topic at the "General Discussion and Gaming > MAME Random Of the Week" forum section with the 3 random games to be voted. And on Wednesday we check the result.
These "rules" are constantly being improved!

@obsidianspider the "Notes" part is a little outdated. ;-)

Interesting selections. Two shoot-outs and a vector title.
I have never been a fan of the shoot-out genre, so I am going to have to vote for Rip Off, even though I'd rather play it with AdvMAME. I remember playing this game in the lobby of a movie theater when I was a kid (no idea what movie we were going to see). It's an important title for my cabinet, as it is one of those simple games that can be fun to play with a friend.
You are in an arena of sorts and the view is top-down. You steer one of two vehicles around the screen trying to protect the "gems" in the middle while the enemies approach. Pick them off with your guns before they grab a gem and tow it off the screen. If they manage to pull a gem out of the middle, you can shoot them as they leave, but the gem stays where it lands making it harder and harder to defend. When all of the gems are gone, the game is over.
Low voter turnout this week, but the winner is Rip Off

@obsidianspider This is one of those weeks where I can try the games but can't play after the game is chosen. I would vote for Shoot Out, and looks like it would lead to a tie. But I also tried Rip Off and it looks like fun. Unfortunately I'm away from my cab this week... :(
By the way, did you gave up with those "what are you playing this week" topics? They were good for casual gaming posts...
@meleu I've been busy with work so posting them slipped my mind. Anyone can create a post like that.
