Okay you guys this is a Scavenger Hunt! Right now, in this forum, post a photo of:

 

 

A SCREENSHOT OF PAC-MAN FOR ATARI 2600 WITH A SCORE OF EXACTLY 4815 ON THE TV SCREEN, WITH A STICKY NOTE ATTACHED TO IT THAT HAS YOUR ATARI I/O SCREEN NAME WRITTEN ON IT AND A PAPER CLIP STUCK TO THE STICKY NOTE

 

 

Okay, got it? Play regular Pac-Man on 2600 until the score reads exactly 4815. Then write your Atari I/O member name on a sticky note, put a paper clip on it for no good reason, slap it to the TV screen, take a picture, and post it right here. The first person to do this will win a Mystery Prize!!

 

Have Fun!

Congrats Rick! Good job. We'll send a prize out to you this week! Please allow a few extra days because of snow.

 

We'll be sure to do more scavenger hunts soon!

I'll admit, it took me some time to find a post-it note.  And finding a working camera. And getting a non-blurry picture.  I figured there would be someone right on my tail.

Haha Ya I had my post-it note written out with my name on it and paper clip attached and ready to slap up on the screen just as soon as I hit 4815 because there's no pause on a 2600

The prize just arrived!  Here it is.  Turns out to be a bare 7800 board.  And the game is.....

Ms Pac Man 002.JPG

Ms Pac Man!

 

Seems appropriate.

Lol a bare 7800 Ms. Pac-Man is the best we could do for a prize? This is a shonda. Shameful! Next time send him an MIB Defender or something.  :spot:

Not sure, Arena! Scavenger Hunts are a surprise that pop up totally unannounced. You'll just have to keep an eye in the forums to see when one might happen!  ;)

Haha I thought it was an AWESOME prize! It's a 7800 game, it's Ms. Pac-Man, and it was a surprise! How can you go wrong? So maybe next time we give away something boxed..

Scavenger Hunts are probably going to be a permanent part of the Forums. If you stay around, there should be plenty more opportunities to participate  :thumbsup:

I figured I cheesed somebody off or something, which is typical for me.  Ha ha ha.  What does one do with a bare board?  What happened to this poor thing's shell?  So many unanswerable questions!  AHHHH!

HAHA no, you didn't cheese anybody off! I thought you'd think it was cool! And better than another 2600 game. It still plays okay if you stick it in a 7800. There are a few games without cartridge shells, they were new and used for eproms. Next time I'll make sure we send you something different.
