Walter Day appears in Guinness World Records book
After 25 years as the worldwide electronic gaming industry's official scorekeeper, Twin Galaxies has gained the attention of Guinness World Records, the experts on superlatives and world records.
Filling a two-page spread, Guinness World Records has lavished generous attention on the electronic gaming hobby in its 2006 volume, now on the newsstands. Among the many dozens of entries are revealing facts on who won history's largest video game cash prize or where the largest arcade in history was located.
And, on page 180 of the prestigious tome, Twin Galaxies receives a mention, where it reads: "LONGEST SERVING PROFESSIONAL GAMING REFEREE.
