I probably don't even have to mention this, as it's most likely a no-brainer for everyone here on the forum, but for many of the games I play (via my USB stick), I try and reserve one of the C64Mini's save states for recording my high-scores.
There are not many classic C64 games that save high-scores to disk. For those games, if I want to preserve the leaderboard, I ensure that I save the game-state after I've registered my score in the hi-score table. This way, I can restore the game the next time I play, keeping my scores intact. Again, this is probably something that everyone else does, but I just thought I'd mention it in case there are newcomers that may not think of using their C64Mini's save game feature in this way.
Also, don't forget to take a picture or screen-grab of some sort of your high-scores and submit them to Retro Computer Scene's High-Scores Archive!

DG5KR: When I was young I felt like the world was turning faster. The C64 was a world full of adventure. First Basic, then Assembler, playing incredible games with friends. It was the best time of my life.

j.: @lordvico - I've noticed this with lots of games. I wondered if this was a PAL vs. NTSC thing and also wondered why the screen type wasn't translated for me.

j.: william - don't pull the joystick. If you need to pull to insert a USB stick - get a USB hub so you can have both plugged in at the same time. One way to save would be to use the game save-state feature. This would be the easiest to do for 4 or less

william: So far I am pretty frustrated using the BASIC. Every time I pull out the joy stick to put the usb into the machine it pops out of BASIC and goes back to the main menu. How does one write a program in BASIC and save it?

eBUG: Hmm how about the C64 makers include some Pascal software and other creative software in addition to games in the carousel ? :-D
