I've just recently been bitten by the Activision patch collecting bug. I never sent away for these as a kid and would like to own the entire set. Most are pretty pricey so I'll settle for the few that are more easily acquired.
I thought it would be fun to try to achieve the high scores (or beat the computer/time/etc.) before purchasing myself each patch. Not quite as cool as getting these directly from Activision but it's the best I can do now
So far I have acheived Chopper Command, Ice Hockey, Sky Jinks, Starmaster and Starmaster Leader. I've been working on Barnstorming next which has been surprisingly difficult for me thus far (thought it looks like this patch may be too expensive to purchase).
I thought it would be cool (and hopefully there is not already a thread exactly like this, I did search first) if folks post your personal Activision patch quests. This can be anything from stories about how you achieved and sent for them as a kid to modern collection attempts like mine. Anything to do with Activision patches!
