Oh my gosh...I couldn't wait to open them, so I went ahead and opened them with my wife.  Nosweargamer, you nailed it!  This was so much fun and these are all PERFECT.  THANK YOU! 

 

Merry Christmas / Happy holiday season to all of the Atari.io forum members!!!

 

You are VERY welcome! I had a lot of fun putting it together and was THRILLED you enjoyed it!  :100:  :thumb:

 

I was also happy that you're the type of guy who would over look my lack of wrapping skills  ;)

WOOHOO!

 

I got my Secret Santa Gift Box Of Joy in the mail today from Rick R. Superstar!

Look at all these wonderful presents & cool letter:

I made this a family affair, allowing the kids to open the presents.

First up, a Talespin figure specifically for my boy and a Dragonfly pin for my oldest girl. They both enjoyed them! It was really nice of Rick to include something just for them!

Next up, this cool X-Wing (which is a lot bigger than it looks in the pic)

And Ms. Pac-Man for the Lynx!!! I've been wanting this one for a while!

IMG_6995.JPG

And finally, the Crown Jewel, this Arcade Style Pac-Man Plug n Play!!!! I've wanted this one for years!

THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH RICK! THIS WAS SOOO AWESOME!  :thumb:  :100:  :thumb:  :100:

 

And your wrapping wasn't too shabby either!  ;)

I'm so glad you liked the gifts.  I had a lot of fun tracking those wish list items down.

PS - I'm addicted to Pole Position on that Plug and Play.  The twisty-knob steering makes it the best emulated version ever!  We should have a high score contest on that game.

Yes! I was thrilled to see that this one has the twist knob. I used to have the Ms. Pac-Man  PnP, and it had the twist knob too, but I thought that was the only one to do that. Bonus!

Looking forward to the break so I can start getting in the Christmas spirit.

Here are my Secret Santa gifts; thank you Willie! I'm especially excited about Pengo for the 2600! I had a shareware version on our Tandy 1000 that I used to play growing up, and I always wanted to play it on the Atari.

Though I was unable to participate this year I did receive a mystery package from CA!!!!! Turns out it was from the one and only BTB!!!!!!!

 

Top left items are what I received from him. Not shown is a silicone ice cube tray that makes huge 2"x2" ice cubes for when I feel classy!!!

 

Hope everyone had a fantastic holiday and a Happy New Year!!!!!!
