The leaderboards are viewable in-game as well as right here on Dreamcast Live. The server software is still in a beta stage but Jonas' is actively monitoring it in order to spot and fix bugs.

Game Night UK will be every Sunday at 8:00PM GMT+1 / 3:00PM EDT and just like Wednesday's Game Night, we'll play a different game every week.

Game Night UK will premier this Sunday with Next Tetris! To see the full game schedule, see here. Hope to see you there and be sure to check out the Dreamcast- Talk forum thread at game time!
