CONGRATULATIONS LordRamco! You've won the prize!


FYI, we had an internal debate about question three, what was the last game Atari Corp. officially released in the United States for the 2600.. Even the most credible sources are conflicting. We decided that we would accept either Secret Quest, MotoRodeo, or Sentinel as correct answers. I didn't realize how murky a question this was yesterday when I posted the quiz.


Either way, you won LordRamco, so congratulations! I will private message you in a moment for your address and details, we'll FedEx your prize and you should have it in the morning.


If you didn't win this time, there will be other chances to win more prizes soon! You never know when we might have a Pop Quiz! THANKS FOR PLAYING EVERYBODY!!
