  1. I think that's an outstanding deal. I'll try to keep my eye out for that AtariAge post.
  2. Do you have any idea what the price may be, TrekMD? This looks really cool. I'm glad you shared it.
  3. Oh wait...you can press "Run" to pause? I'll try that on my next run to get a picture. Even though I am Klingon and have tons of honor.
  4. Thank god for the honor system. I'm not fast enough to get a picture. 41,800. Wow, what an amazing, yet very difficult game. I'm going to have to spend more time with this!

    Gee whiz, I had no idea this was going on. I'll try to tune in this week.
  6. I think I play a lot more now that I used to. Since we are empty nesters, I seem to have more time for that, and it makes me happy. Right now, I'm on a big GB/GBA kick, so I play that almost every day.
  7. Please DO post what CIB games you are looking for, as I would be happy to help with that. And I'm interested in any games you have that I don't already have. Probably Genesis, NES, and manuals. The junk box concept would be really cool! Maybe have a big ziploc bag within that contains items we can put in that YOU want back, so that nobody takes those. In any case, THANKS. It's nice of you no matter who gets them. And congrats on getting your game room set up how you like it. That's huge.

    I've been on a Game Boy kick since the Super Mario Land high score challenge. I thought I'd share the games I've acquired lately:
  9. The trees here tell their own story. Some grew, some are gone. So much to see in these two pictures.
  10. I love this. I agree with @Justin, this blog is one of the best I've seen in a long time.
  11. My best guess would be used PC parts. A video card perhaps. I remember selling some of my Atari stuff I didn't need anymore. A 1030 modem, a 1025 printer. It was amazing at the time that people would want that old crap LOL.
  12. Furthermore, how cool that you kept the original console AND the box, and all the various pieces of your collection. I have my original boxed Atari 2600 from my youth, but I stupidly threw out all the boxes for the games.
  13. I'm new to the TG-16, having just got one a few months ago. You'll have to let me know which games are worth trying. I ended up buying an everdrive, because as you mention, the prices can be pretty nuts for games -- IF you can even find them.
