I've been doing some thinking over the past few months, and I think the time is right for Rowsdower to move on to other pastures.

I don't collect for the Atari, and there's really nothing here for Intellivision collectors.   Our chat is gone so there's no events for an Intellivision guy since the high score competition specifically excluded it.  And I'm definitely done with Junk Boxes after my last go around.  So this, for the most part, is good bye.

So while I may come check in just to say hi from time to time, the friends I've made I will stay in touch with on Facebook.

Thanks for letting me hang around, and I do wish you all the best!

Sad to see you go! I enjoyed participating in the junk box you ran, and I think we did some trades as well. I can understand not hanging around if Atari isn't your thing though.

I saw Intellivision listed as a system on the High Score Squad rules, so I was surprised when you said it was specifically excluded? I for one would love to do some INTV challenges as it would give me a reason to fire up my Intellivision and play it more.

Good luck on your quest to 125.  Come on back when you are ready. 


And Starbuck66 -- I'm totally in if you want to do an Intellivision challenge sometime.  I need an excuse to play mine more too.

I'm sorry to see you go and do hope we'll keep in touch.
The site is definitely Atari heavy. I wouldn't mind seeing a High Score Squad for an Intellivision game. I did post a score for Thundercastle,but alas I had no challengers.

Rowsdower70, AlamoAtari, Lost Dragon, Retrogamer81081, and VectorGamer have all left. Makes you wonder what's gone wrong?

Sad to see you go bro! I agree that it would be nice to see some more interaction for INTV owners here even though I lack the system. I have you as a friend on Steam and maybe someday I can join in on a multiplayer game with you. Hope to see you make a triumphant return soon.

I never knew the others left the site either. Are we doing something wrong?
