• Carlos Matos
    SHOW #54
    taped: 7/15/1983
Carlos was in thirteen years old in the summer of 1983 when his Starcade show was taped. When asked what the most interesting thing about him was, he said, "Nothing I'm just a plain, ordinary, freckled nose kid." And he described his game playing ability as "average". Carlos was anything but "average" in playing games - don't let the looks deceive you. Carlos was one savy player!

Carlos scored less than his opponent on the first (Sinistar) and third (Star Trek) games they played but he more than made it up on the second (Krull) game. Carlos took Krull with enough points to wipe out his opponents' lead, beating him by just a few hundred points. Tough for his opponent but a great competition between two very good players.

In February 2009 Carlos checked in saying, "Can't believe I found your site!!! ... Many years have past since being on Starcade and I still get a kick from the memories of tryouts and of course being on live tv.."

Starcade remembers how well you played Krull, masterful!
