Q*Bert video game record broken


UPI News Service, 02/19/2013 

A world record for playing the video game Q*Bert -- nearly 85 hours -- was established in a New Jersey arcade by George Leutz of New York.

The 38-year-old Manhattan resident played the marathon game, popular in the 1980s, on a single game credit for 84 hours and 48 minutes Thursday through Monday, beating the previous record of 68 hours, 30 minutes set in Florida in 2012, The (Newark, N.J.) Star-Ledger reported.

It was Leutz's fifth attempt to attempt the record, and the trick, he said, was to pace himself properly, with 9 hours of gaming, followed by 45 minutes of deep sleep. Guinness World Record rules allow 5 minutes per hour to rest.

After his four-day achievement Leutz took at 12-hour nap on the couch at the home of the arcade owner, the newspaper said.
