  1. I had no idea there was a pinball game for SMS.
  2. Oooh, this is tough. Most of my favorites are based on real cars. For example, the Chevy Nomad Wagon. Given the limitations, I'd do with something like this. It's gold and black and looks good.
  3. It isn't easy, that's for sure. That makes it a lot more realistic than most modern golf games
  4. 2600Club is holding a 2600 Golf tournament. Post your lowest score before Feb 17! The top 40 scores get a collector card (and bragging rights). https://2600club.com/atari-golf-tourney-2020/
  5. We just finished Discovery Season 2. I loved it, although the ending was strange and unsatisfying. The character of Captain Pike was truly incredible. And the visit to Talos IV??? AWESOME. Best not to think about that last episode too deeply though -- plot holes galore!
  6. I'm not sure why, or if it's good....but I think there must be a food based Hot Wheels line.  Today I found a "toast" car to go with my hamburger-mobile.

      It's a harmless hobby really.  They don't take up much room, and only $1 if you find something you like.  I also am one that opens the packaging and puts the cars on the shelf.

      I will open duplicates sometimes.  And I already see an unopened case of HW cars in my future ;) Wife found a 24-car case cheap she's been hounding me about.

      I agree about it being a harmless hobby.  When I was working in at a die casting plant making good money I would actually buy a case of HW cars from Wal-Mart with every pay check.  I only had to give a small portion to my grandmother for bills the rest was free game.  I spent more on HW than video games and any duplicates I held on to for trade or selling to other collectors.

      I'm once again finding myself hitting the HW section every time I go to Wal-Mart.  We don't have a Target locally so it's either Dollar General, Dollartree, Walgreens (over a $1 per car there, though), or Wal-Mart.  Wal-Mart has the biggest pile of course but they also poured them in a metal bin.  Next time we go I'm going to have to take two carts with me.  One to hold the cars we want, the other just to move the other cars out of the way.

  7. Willie, your content has been outstanding lately. Thank you and keep up the good work.
  8. PS - we are now watching season 2 of "Star Trek Discovery" (I got the DVD's from the library). I just can't get over how incredible the effects are on this show -- cinematic, really. If ST:Picard is this good, holy cow! Picard will probably be next on our list.
  9. Hopefully we didn't spoil it for you. One more thing...Then end credits of each episode were so cool too. I think it was a series of storyboards. Mesmerizing to me.
  10. We finished it last night and loved it. I think it's great that each chapter is only 30 minutes. The stories are kept simple with minimal dialogue. Perfect! It's being described as a space western, and even compared to the old spaghetti westerns, and I think that's perfectly appropriate. Smart, fun, and not time consuming is a winning combo. And oh yeah...BABY YODA!
  11. My wife and I started watching last night, getting through 2 episodes. It's awesome so far.
  12. I'm thinking about selling mine. But the shipping would be really high since the 5200 is so dang big. Is your old one gone for good? Because I also have an extra one that has a bad power switch. I can't quite figure out how that power switch worked, so if your old board is still there, maybe I could steal the power switch from it.
  13. Same file. So either way is good.
  14. I've downloaded it! Let me know how we can play together. One note to add to your instructions....the free version is listed as "TrackMania 1 Demo".
