    @RickR - I'm not aware of any codes, but Atari.com offers 15% off for a first time order.
    Also, no list on upcoming games. I tend to decide on the last day of the prior month, LOL. It's a little different with a living console vs. Retro.

    @Sabertooth, I'm going to go ahead and grab the Fatal Run and Ninja Golf carts after seeing your great pics.  Just thought I'd ask first if you know of any coupon codes for this weekend  🙂

    Do you happen to have (and it is OK to say no) a list of upcoming high-score challenge games?  Purchase them now while they are on sale!  PM me if the list is better off kept private 🙂 
    Some real bargains there...Tempest 4000 for $4!  Still, I don't know which are worthwhile and which are stinkers. 
    Thanks very much for posting this notice and the list.

    Thanks both of you.  I can't believe it's close to three years since she passed.  I was already living on my own when she passed, so housing wasn't an issue.  It was just that she was the last member of my family I had (after my father passed in 2010, we pretty much estranged from his side of the family.)

    Fortunately, my BFF and her family have stepped in, saying that I'm officially part of their family.  So it's like one generation ended and a new one began.

    I'm sorry for what has happened, I cannot imagine what that must be like. We're all glad you're here and it's very good to see you again Lauren.

    I'm so sorry about the loss of your mom.  It isn't ever easy.  Hold on to those good memories as those can never be taken away from you.

    What does it mean when it says that information "needs Cited"? So Activision sold some Imagic titles apparently in Australia using their shells, that makes sense. Back then, nobody would really know.

    According to Wikipedia, Activision DOES own Imagic titles:

    No, Activision, founded in 1979, did not purchase Imagic or their games during their time developing games for the Atari platform. Imagic was a separate game publishing company that was established in 1981 and became prominent for developing video games for the Atari 2600 and other platforms of the era. While both companies were active in the same time period and produced games for Atari, there is no record or information indicating that Activision acquired Imagic or their game catalog.

    Didn't Activision buy all the Imagic titles at some point?

    I have learned that these were sold in Australia. I had someone in an Atari forum show me photos of the ones he had, he said he hasn't seen a Laser Gates one in a long time. He has a Cosmic Ark, Quick Step and Riddle of the Sphinx. Cosmic has a yellow lable, Riddle a red one and Quick a orange label. These are in Activision shells and are PAL versions.

    Quite an achievement! Games for the 2600 are usually pretty tough, too.
