I don't think I've responded to this thread yet....
1)Definitely going to PRGE, so staying alive until then is a priority
2)finally find CBS German Angry Kong to complete my CBS/Colecovision variations
3)somehow get lucky and find Digiplay Pinball, (ideally find two so Steve Jones gets one too). :)
4)continue to add to my Shockvision and Intelligames collections and get everything scanned for Steve for the Intyfunhouse site
5)fill in more holes in my German, Dutch, Italian, French, and Spanish euro manual variations as well as UK and Australian Lifestyle boxes
6)add to my Bandai CIB collection
7)look for any new paperwork/catalogs/ephemera, etc that I don't have
8)add any missing boxed hardware, including system box variations and controllers/add ons
9)find more Parker and Imagic prototypes/test carts
10)support all homebrewers by buying their games and/or by helping behind the scenes
11)get Groovy to release a Captain Bacon game
12)get Tarzilla or Oscar or any talented programmer to release a Star Wars game whereby you get to kill Ewoks, Jawas, Gungans and ultimately Jar Jar as the final boss
13)continue to do guest appearances on the Intellivisionaries podcast to provide a "Canadian" perspective :)
14)discourage Rev from collecting Hello Kitty and My Little Pony paraphernalia
15)oh, almost forgot this...find more KC CIB games
16)play more Inty with my son as I want him to truly appreciate what he'll one day inherit
17)finish my Aquarius collection, still need Chess CIB
....I'm sure more things will come to mind...

Thanks for keeping me
In mind on the elusive DP Pinball
What do you mean by Australian and Uk lifestyle boxes?
The system ones with soccer in the TV ?
There are two I am aware of, are there more?
Or something else?

the variation of the game boxes, I guess. The ones with the writing on the top or on the bottom flap (sometimes with a sticker) stating that the game was made in HK and distributed by Lifestyle, often mentioning Radofin as well
(someone correct me if I'm wrong)

I have a Word Fun box that has that text. It doesn't mention Lifestyle, just "Manufactured for Mattel by Radofin Electronics (Far East) Ltd." It's printed directly on the bottom flap, no sticker.

That makes sense then. cmart had confirmed the one I had was the UK version. I can see how they'd have different distributors in areas that far apart.

Wow, with 2017 winding down I thought I'd look at my goals and see where I stand. Overall most of the old goals were done and some of the new ones. I've worked a few deals here on the forums and I like it better than ePay.

Looking forward to Secret Santa, and 2018.

Yes, I've started my christmas ornament project. We'll see...

updates to my list:
 
 
 
Wow! 2017 has been incredible. I'm really thankful to the community, ebay, student loans, and dumb luck. I've gotten Christmas Carol, DK Arcade (from Carl himself), Number Jumble, Land Battle, and Go Sub. The original Sydney Hunter still on its way from Canada, and I've been waiting since early January. Bunny Hotel and Space Beaver are also ordered.
 
I have competed or made CiB: Piggy Bank, with Diner and Commando almost finished with final pieces on their way.
 
My additional goals for 2017 are:
1) Learn to make boxes. If any member will send me their adobe template I would appreciate it
2) Make an 'ornament set' for Christmas time
3) Get an auction/fundraiser going for either Children's play or for The Big Slick here in Kansas City
4) NIB Intv2
5) Sears controller CIB
6) Get board for Mystic Castle, SP Baseball, and Missile  Domination
7) Super Cobra or Tutankam
8) Pacman JR
9) sealed, NIB Backgammon- gatefold, INTV, and Sears. This is my favorite board game
10) Learn some INTY Basic.
 
I'm expecting y'all to hold me to these.

Because I'm so set in my collection. None of my goals were met except getting to PRGE! I did demo two BBWW games...so that was fun.

SOMEBODY PLEASE someone find me a sealed (shrink wrapped) CBS Turbo!!!!

Believe me I will be doing nothing but Super Pro Baseball, Mystic Castle and Lock 'N' Chase boxes all next month. There's no time for anything else!

What ever happened to these, we got the boards, the cart labels, overlays, manuals, just waiting for your boxes.
Take my money!!!

1. I want to go to the PRGE 2017

2. I want to purchase Learning Fun I and Learning Fun II (at the right price)

3. I want to buy all the homebrews that will be released

4. I want to have more time to play Intellivision games

5. I want to buy more Shock Vision and Digimed/Digiplay games

5bis. I want to find a Shock Vision adapter

6. I want to find more “for color t.v. viewing only” games

7. I want at least 2 copies of all the the1hatman’s boxes

8. I want at least 2 copies of all the mthompson’s stuff

9. I do NOT want to see the photos that BBWW has of Cmart on Rev

10. I do NOT want to see the photos that BBWW doesn’t have of Rev on Cmart (but someone else actually does)

I have actually accomplished many of the goals Intellivision related I had set out for myself for 2017. The most amazing ones are to have gone to PRGE 2017 and to have completed the 125 CIB collection.

I feel pretty stupid of not having released a new version of IntyBASIC since October 2016, no big changes but there are a few bugs that need urgent update :dunce:

 

Wanted to be at 125 loose Intellivision cartridges by this year, but looks like I'll have to wait because I've had a conversation with the green things in my pocket :ponder:

 

The good news is that I've got Oregon Bound released in record time and I'm working in the new levels for Miner 2049er :grin:

 

In another good news, I've had a pair of ideas for new games, but in the bad news, I don't have enough time to start them :P that's a shame because I wanted to help to break the record of releases this year just to make eric7100 to be happy :evil:

I’m starting to work more overtime so I can afford all of the things I pledged my name to Intellivision related. Of course I always work a lot so that’s nothing all that new. I am impressed with goal setting for a video game console. I usually see goals as striving to accomplish something really important. Video games aren’t usually on that list for me, but maybe they should be. I sure do spend most of my play money on them. It would be nice to look back and feel a sense of accomplishment about gaming from time to time. I see that Microsoft was on to something a few years back.

Very poorly. 2017 was a very busy year for me as far as real life, nowhere near enough time for my hobbies, other than getting to PRGE and adding a few pretty cool items and a decent amount of variations to my underground lair.

Heres hoping 2018 finds me with more spare time.

1) Arrange to get the cassette deck in my keyboard component looked at by a cassette repair specialist. Decle's expertise  took it from a "brick" to being able to boot up and showed me that the  cassette deck has signs of life in it.

2) Purchase a cassette for the KC to test it - might be a 5 year goal that one.  

3) Purchase the 1980 Mattel catalog with the KC on the cover - very nostalgic for me so willing to overpay $$$$ if one came up

4) Purchase all the first released games for the Intellivision in shrink wrap with "keyboard component coming soon" on the cover

5) Actually play some games
