This forum has been dead for the longest time. What happened to everyone?

I think some of the leaders got taken off w/ either family or full size arcade machine!

I'm moving into an apartment that might be decent for hosting some stuff, though I don't have Christian's collection of classic toys for people to mess around with.

Still keeping an eye on the forum, just really busy and as kisrael indicated, focusing my collecting on arcade machines these days.

I'm still here!

I must confess that life over the past few years has taken me away from active collecting and trading. I'm not the hardcore list checking, flea market hunting guy I used to be. I'm always up for hosting another meet if theres enough interest from the community.

I admit I haven't had the time for collecting now that I'm married. Just seems like every weekend we are busy (which is not a bad thing).

I still check in now and then... looking forward to meeting everyone someday.
Maybe everyone could meet up at Funspot some weekend?

Speaking of Funspot, the Annual ACAM Classic Arcade Tournament is next weekend. I plan to go up at least one day, probably Thurs/Fri as I have to work most of that weekend.

Details Here

As long as I can give two weeks notice, I'm always up for another meet.

As for Funspot, that depends on if someone can give me a ride.

Hell, I'd love to go to Funspot again. I went to college at Plymouth State (94-98) and we used to go about once a month there. Great times.

More then happy to drive as well.

+1. Still around, still easy to find. Admittedly I have been slowly liquidating my console collection. I still have a ton of stuff to go - particularly a metric ton of hardware to sell. Gotta get on that.

Seems like every collector I know is in liquidate rather than acquire mode. Chalk it up to changing tastes, getting older, needing the room, bad economy. I scarcely add to my collection these days, frankly it would hard to without winning auctions, but I've yet to unload even a single cart. Just let me complete my career change and get a bigger house and its super game room time again. HA!

I think the last time I made it to a meet it was the release of NECG Ewok... Been a long time. I still have my entire 2600 collection and have boxes and boxes of dupes I'd love to unload... I still pick up carts from time to time, mostly trades now, but have slowly been building a Coleco collection. Family life slows hobbies down a bit.

At least a couple of us moved on to arcade games. Bigger, more expensive, more hands on.
