  8. Thank you so much!!!! Stay tuned to this thread for updates on the prizes!!!!
  9. Thanks for doing this. I always have a soft place in my heart for kids who need help. Hope you meet your goal!
  10. No way! If people don't trust me, that's tough for them. When I do the drawing, I will do it live & record it. I can tell you right now that I will be shuffling the list 12 times, as that's my favorite number. Also, I'll make sure I have enough prizes for everyone who donates. The winner of the giveaway will have the first pick, then the next in line will have the second, etc. until everything is gone.
  11. Awesome bro! Since you won my give away maybe it might be better to take me out of this one. Just so no one can cry like a baby if in the chance I win something here. Either way let me k ow what i can do to help and best of luck bro.
  12. Congratulations to @nads on his perfect 300 on 2600 Bowling!

  13. That's it! That's what I have on my tablet. It's made by the same people that made the Pinball Hall of Fame titles.
  14. Last week
  15. There is a really good pinball sim on Steam (for PC) called "Pinball Arcade" that does a really good job of recreating real tables. They have a "free" table to try every month, and it's fun to try each one. Highly recommended.
  16. Oh, I love some video pinball. I am fortunate that we have a place in Fargo where they have a pinball collection to play, so I always stop by and play some games when I can. I haven't jumped into owning a pinball machine yet. I don't really have the room and I am kinda intimidated with the upkeep of an older machine.
  17. I’m going to have to end up paying top dollar for one since I’d be lucky to know how to plug it in let alone build or restore one. I’m extremely jealous of your skills!!!
  18. Well...I don't have any "real" pinball machines but I do own a few video games of pinball tables. I have Pinball Hall of Fame for original XBOX and PS2 and Pinball Hall of Fame William's Collection for the original XBOX. Somewhere on my tablet is the same thing by the same creators where you can purchase tables at a time or in packages. On the tablet I have Pin*Bot and Bride of Pin*Bot plus a few more, Pin*Bot on the NES, a few more on the tablet I can't remember the name of, and all those on the consoles. Which one is my favorite? Bride of Pin*Bot mostly because of the voiced reactions Pin*Bot makes when you advance the table. "I can speak!" "Oh no." That never gets old.
  19. Sooooo... 😀 Several of you have already been kind enough to donate to my Extra Life fundraiser this year. You guys got me off to a great start (I'm currently at 41% of my goal) but I'm always looking to do more. The event is coming up in a few weeks (November 2) and while you can still donate through the end of the year, I want to make another push to exceed my goal on or before gameday. Therefore, I've decided to do a raffle similar to what @Atari Creep did for his Alzheimer's Walk fundraiser. For every dollar donated (retroactive for all of you who have already donated!), you will receive one entry into the drawing. Now you must be wondering, "What are the damn prizes??" That's a great question. Stay tuned & I will be posting them here over the next couple of days. I have some ideas already and they include gift certificates relevant to the retro gaming scene, some classic toys and who knows what else I can find. Mainly, it will be gift certificates since you guys already wiped out my excess retro game collection. Here's the link to donate: Storm's Extra Life Page (Our own @fergojisan is part of my fundraising team. You can join too and together, we can rule the fundraising galaxy not as father and son but rather as good pals.) Disclaimer: Only those who let me know that they donated for the giveaway will be entered into the drawing. Again, those Atari.IO members who have already given are already entered but none of the other donors from outside Atari.IO who have already donated will be. That said, with @Justin's blessing, I may open it up to other retrogamers, nerds, etc. from my Twitter & IG followers and possibly the very few posters who know of me at AA. ----------- What is Extra Life?? It's a 24 hour gaming marathon (EDIT: 25 hours! Daylight Savings Time!!) to raise money for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Since its inception in 2008, Extra Life has raised over $50 million for sick & injured kids. I'm raising money for the Connecticut Children's Medical Center (yes, I know I live in NY now, but it's basically CT. It's a long story.) All donations are tax-deductible.
  20. Hi Guys - I have made another one available in case anyone is interested - it is here on my eBay listings: https://www.ebay.com/sch/retrogameboyz/m.html Let me know if you have any questions. Regards, Mike
  21. While I have an appreciation for all things Atari, I also love to sit back and play some pinball from time to time. In late 92 early 93, I was stationed in Witchita Falls for my AF Tech Training as a jet mechanic. Well at first, we were restricted to the dorms but they had a small arcade. This was when Mortal Combat was huge so everyone crowded around that machine. In the corner I found two pinball machines and became obsessed with them. They are still my favorite tables to this day!
  22. Well, if it's pre built, the convince factor is definitely there.
  23. Oh yeah, The cards have all the original artwork from the books. I am not sure if it is a word for word copy of the book overall, but it pays homage to the artwork and humor of the book.
  24. I love stuff like this. I love the artwork, this looks like it could be straight out of Tim Lapetino's "Art of Atari".
  25. ZMan Games has announced its second board/card game based on Choose Your Own Adventure Books from the 80s. I bought the "House of Danger" game and the game is played with cards and a small board. It is set up into five chapters with objectives to complete each chapter. You can make decisions, but you sometimes will need to make a 6D roll on a certain attribute to beat the "Danger Index". You also have a Psychic meter which will progress you into certain areas of the game. There are also several items you can collect to help you through the game. It combines the old quirky humor the R. A. Montgomery was known for in his books so it relates to all generations. I recommend 1-4 players and you cooperatively try to finish the chapters. It combines simple, easy to learn gameplay while not being bogged down by reading the story all the time. The new game is called "War with the Evil Power Master" and looks like it will play a little differently, but will definitely be on my wish list.
