Among these scores are the infamous “King of Kong” score of 1,047,200. In 2005, Mitchell sent a low-quality VHS tape with that score to Funspot Arcade in Laconia, New Hampshire shortly after another player, Steve Wiebe, had surpassed Mitchell's earlier first-place score. The events were shown in the 2007 documentary The King of Kong.
