    This was printed in a reputable Atari magazine, but it is so funny that I am not sure just how "official" it was.

    I have finally rounded up all the stuff I want need to purge from my collection. I know it will find good homes with Atari.IO members. We'll have some fun with it too!
    I've spoken to Justin about this & he's on board. He can comment here if any of what I'm about to state is not kosher.
    I'd like to limit this to members of this site who are registered as of NOW, Monday, May 6 at 11:20 AM EST. I don't want someone getting wind of this & deciding to sign up just to get some free stuff.
    If you're interested in any of the items I'm about to post photos of, please comment in this topic. I'll leave the registration open for a week. Next Monday, May 13, I'll close the registration and then we can get going.
    How This Will Work
    We're going to do this like a fantasy sports draft. (I MUCH prefer auctions to drafting but since there won't be any money involved, we're going to keep it simple.)
    Once I know who will be participating, I will take all of the names & randomly select a draft order. It will be a snake draft, meaning the order is inverted every other round. (i.e., if you have the first pick in the first round, you pick last in the second, and vice versa)
    Once the draft order is set, we'll allow 24 hours for each member to make their selection. If no selection is made, the person will be skipped.
    We'll keep drafting until everything is gone!
    If anyone has any questions, please chime in here.
    What I'm Asking For
    NO money!
    Here's what I'd like:
    A donation to my Extra Life fundraising this year: Storm's Extra Life Page Promotion for my Extra Life fundraiser. I don't have FB anymore & that's how I raised most of my money the last time I did this. Items from my Wish List: Storm's CIB 2600 Wish List Future considerations. 😀 That's it!
    Now to the goodies...

    The list is finalized!!!
    I'm really swamped this week with tons of stuff, but I will get the ball rolling.
    Hopefully at some point today, I'll sort the list randomly at random.org (& record it) and I'll reveal the results dramatically on here. Then we can begin!

    Thanks all!!

    Arenafoot got a reaction from slobu in Brand New! Head-2-Head Adventure online!   
    So, you ask yourself ......how would a 2 (or 3) player game of Atari Adventure be played??? Well, Ro Anders decided to try and program it and it is now available for us!! Any of the 3 levels can be played with 2 or 3 players competing AT THE SAME TIME! Each player has their own castle and their own key to open it, everything else is still the same. Welcome to Atari Adventure Rebooted (aka Head-2-Head Adventure)!!!!
    Download here: https://sites.google.com/site/h2hadventure/home
     
    Now you're playing against..... (maybe me) and you get to the black castle and get the chalice from the red dragon and you return it to your castle .....only to find that your castle is locked because someone else locked your castle and took off with the key! LOL!!
     

     
    This game is quite addicting! And its an awesome twist on an already awesome game! I've played a couple of games against the creator and other Adventure fans and they agree, this classic is even better!
     
    A current drawback (but minor) - you have to shut down the program and restart it to begin a new game each time. Ro may fix this in the future if there's enough interest in the game. (and some computers anti-virus programs will flag this game too, but its perfectly fine)

    BTW - I did create a private Facebook PM of those of us who downloaded the game, so that we can find a 2nd (or 3rd) player to play against. Let me know if you would like to be added so that more of us can enjoy this new version of a classic!  (contact me either thru Atari.IO PM or here) 
     
    See you in the game!
    ENJOY!!

    Took a trip to the big city today and visited an arcade. Lots of classic arcade games set to free play. Pay $10 (plus tax) at the door and play all you want. I went in planning to write down all the games I played, but I quickly lost track. I got the high score on Ms Pac Man, though!  (Okay, they had probably recently reset the scores, so it didn’t take much. But several people played after I did and none of them beat me, so there!  lol)  I realized afterward that I should have taken more pics, but I was having too much fun playing!
     
    And as an added bonus, we saw a Vista Cruiser station wagon in the parking lot when we were leaving.  Just like the one in That 70s Show!

    I won one of these from AtGames the day after Christmas! 
    I thought the batteries in the handheld would be sufficient enough to power the unit completely. But to plug in the dongle with an AC adapter behind the TV makes it difficult to use on a regular basis. Maybe if they make the dongle rechargeable?? 
    I ended up selecting the Activision Blast unit. I love the rewind feature!
