Nice stuff!  What are the two loose carts?

I know the one on the left is undoubtably has a blurry version of the Atari Berzerk art, upside-down. For what system, I don’t know. I know @Willie! is a big fan of the game from his videos!

As for the right cart, a complete mystery. Something for the XE, but I can’t make out the title of it.

I am fairly sure I know where the Pong 2600 Mini Paddle thing came from...

Wait a minute! Someone put in the new Haunted House video pinball table in the box? How did I miss it!?!? 😄

Yep, you guys are right.

That is a copy of David's Midnight Magic for the XE, a homebrew Berzerk Prototype for the Atari 8-bits and a mini Atari 2600 Paddle Controller Keychain Plug N Play, which contains 3 games. Also, you might not be able to tell, but that Defender II is a sealed copy that someone else put it.

Nice picks @Willie! 

You have such a big collection, that I wasn't sure what I could include that you didn't already have. I knew you liked Atari 8 bits, pinball, the paddle controller and Galaxian, so I'm glad you found some stuff to take!

You missed the Haunted House video pinball!  Advantage Willie! hee hee hee.

Anyway, Yes I am a big fan of the Atari 8 bit computers.  I used to write games back in the day and sell them at Atari Computer meetups.  I had one game I was writing to submit to the APX program exchange that they wanted but at the time my attentions diverted to cars and girls 😛   I have quite a few carts for my 800XL to the point I am down to looking for some of the more rare titles like MR. TNT, Droids and such 😛

Do you still have that game? it would be awesome to see what you were making in a video if you still have it!

You're my newfound hero, @Willie! I ❤️ Atari 8-bit, my first home computer. However, outside of some CIB Atari 8-bit games (mostly games by EA and Synapse), I'm not going down the rabbit hole of collecting A8 hardware and software -- just don't have the space. I do have the 800 in box and two 800XL along with the SDrive and Ultimate cart.

I did up to when I moved to my new house, the movers "lost" alot of my boxes from my hobby/arcade room.   The first one I sold was Robot Attack, written in Atari Basic using the Monkey Wrench cart on the Atari 800 my dad had. It was a basic game with robots coming in from the side of the screen towards the player, kind of like a side ways space invaders.   I also did a Dungeons and Dragons game that featured randomly generated maps and graphical representations of each room.  I did a few smaller programs as school projects (Automated control of my model railroad, weather forecasting using homemade sensors interfaced to the Atari, Robots and such)    The best one of all that I worked on for about 2 years to send in to APX was Orbital Assault - This game had two planets orbiting a central sun.  The players would start in orbit at each planet.  They would go to attack the other and if damaged they could go back to their planet to repair and refuel.  You also had the ability to damage the other players planet by shooting at it.   At the time I lost interest in it, I was working on the computer AI for the one player game.  I still regret not fully finishing it, I did go back to it in the mid 90's but my job had me really busy and I just did not have the time I used to.   Maybe when I retire, I may try to recreate it 🙂

You took some AWESOME items.  And, as usual, your presentation is excellent.  I'm so glad you found stuff you really like. 

It's tough, though, right? 

That Tomy dragster thingy is probably my favorite of what you took out.  I saw Willie's review of that and look forward to yours too.  It reminds me a lot of a drag-racing game I used to play on my Android tablet. 

Sounds like you and @chas10e have the handoff set up, so I won't bother you guys with a PM about that.

Nice picks! Knights Mission came from Willie, Magnetargert was from me, as did the Lynx games and Commando. I actually used that copy of Warbirds for my review of it.

I also put some of what I thought was your favorite candy in there, but I guess I was wrong?

Since no one has taken any NSG Card Packs yet, anyone who gets the box can take the extras. Don't worry about replacing them value wise. I made sure to put in more than enough to cover what I took out so that anyone could take out the packs for free. Rick, if a bunch of packs get returned to you and you don't want them all, you can just send them back to me the next time we do a trade and I'll use them for giveaways. Or you can open them all and eat all the gum for yourself!
