National Night Out

Posted by SpiceWare, in Houston 04 October 2011 · 3,019 views

Tonight's National Night Out for the Houston area. I thought it'd be fun to demo my games to the neighbors. I've got two 2600s and a 7800 that I'm going to set up in the driveway.

To make it easier for them to play Medieval Mayhem, I used these

to color code the paddles. I took a purple sharpie to the white cable-id as there wasn't a purple one.

Test run of the systems. I know it's not "tis the season", but I don't want my tables to get messed up on the concrete so I dug into my Xmas stash for the rugs :D

Got too wrapped up showing off the games so I didn't get any photos during NNO. The kids played the games while the adults reminisced. I was surprised that the kids found Medieval Mayhem to be too difficult, even with it set to kids speed! Stay Frosty seemed to be the most popular, followed by Frantic.

Hey! Neat idea..

I like what you did with the paddles.

I LOVE the paddles idea. I have to do this to my own.

The Cable-IDs mostly worked well, though I did notice a few times where the player holding purple thought they were the bottom-left (blue) instead of top-left. I'd even tweaked the TINT control beforehand to make sure the colors matched as well as I could make them.

Maybe colored labels on the monitor case corners would also help.

I'll have to bring the Cable-IDs along if we have another Medieval Mayhem contest at the next CGE.
