Activision Patch-worthy Scores of Atari I/O

Per Justin's comment, I made a table of Activision games officially released for the Atari 2600. I reviewed the game manuals for all the games listed to gather the patch requirements. I also listed games that do not appear to have patches. If you're interested in what the patches look like, AtariAge forum has an Activision Patch Gallery page.

If you have a patch-worthy score, reply here, and I'll add your name to the I/O Member column. 

I've only managed to get qualifying scores for two games, Stampede and Freeway. I am closing in on Beamrider. I posted my scores for the three games in the Scoreboard sub-forum.

Should I include Activision games for other consoles that had patch awards?

I do have a few real patches.  The "Skiing" one I actually earned back as a kid.  The other two are repros recently purchased on ebay.

I was going to ask if anyone has the real thing. That is super cool that you not only got a patch when you're a kid, but that you still have it ♥️👍

I think I may have earned the StarMaster patch as a kid, but of course, I don't have it anymore. Not having anything genuine, I did buy a few patches made for games that Activision did not release patches for. The You Suck patch also came with a fake Activision letter. I bought them all on AtariAge forum.

I also picked up a deck of cards a few months ago on Facebook. Each card has an Activision game and the back side has a photo of the developer.

I'm on a roll -- got my patch for Chopper Commander. Only 11,900 (less than 1/10 of NSR and RickR's scores 😮) -- this was a fairly easy one although the difficulty seems to ramp up pretty quick near the 10k mark. I hit 11k a few times but not much higher.

I wouldn't mind reproduction patches.  Those were cool and I missed out on them because I had a 5200 😞 

Put me down for Enduro.  I have a high score on this site where I went for like 10 days.  One of my favorite 2600 games!

And I got 56 tanks on Robot Tank.

Put me down for Chopper Command (115,100), and it looks like NSG earned a much higher score than what he reported here.

 

I updated the table with the scores posted in the Chopper Command squad challenge thread. I added scores for @TrekMD, @dauber, and @Atari 5200 Guy as well.
