Calling old-school gamers: Missile Command contest in Downtown Racine this weekend

Calling all classic video game buffs! Piranha Gaming at 234 Main St. is holding a "Missile Command" contest this weekend with a new X-Box 360 console going to the highest score. Owner Jason Jarstad had the video game (above) out on the street Friday night for all to play. A $2 entry fee gets you a chance at the Xbox and an entry into a drawing for a Nintendo Wii. All proceeds benefit the North Side Preschool in Racine. The contest runs through Monday, July 5 at 8 p.m. The high score, as of about 8pm on Friday, was an easily beatable 9,945 (set by this intrepid reporter). 

Stop by Piranha Gaming this weekend for your chance to enter. It's for a good cause, plus you could walkaway Missile Command champ of Racine!

For those who don't know the game, here's what it looks like.
