Similar to Jason's 2017 thread and in the spirit of previous threads on this topic, what are your goals (playing, collecting, buying, selling, programming, other) for 2018?

Most of my 2017 goals were admittedly, almost unobtainable, (Digiplay Pinball, Intellivision Inc Backgammon) so this year I have scaled back a bit.

 

1 - buy any new homebrews, keep them coming Rev.

2 - complete European Mattel variations, with slots in back and without.

3 - last few Mattel CIB games that mention KC, I still need Skiing, Football, Golf, Roulette and Backgammon

4 - early boxed UK system in good condition (the box with the "coming soon" games in top right corner)

5 - French Canadian bilingual Tandyvision in good shape

6 - go to PRGE again this year, stay a bit longer to see more of Portland, hopefully not pouring rain again this time.

7 - try to buy any new Coleco/CBS variations I've never seen before, saw one recently in an hugely overpriced lot of commons but wasn't willing to pay $500 for it,

     another one a guy in Ireland swears is common there but I have only seen once before.

8 - maybe loose carts for my retro boxes of LF2, Spiker, Stadium Mud Buggies if price isn't crazy.

9 - more Bandai games.

Finish off my boxed Imagic collection (need a Fathom) and maybe the ECS collection. I need a Jetsons for the ECS but don't know if I want to spend that much on a game that will probably just sit on a shelf when that money could go toward an LTO flash or homebrew.

what's the Coleco/CBS variation you're talking about? Curiosity killed the cat but not me... at least until now

Here are some of my 2018 Intellivision goals.

Create some videos on Intellivision gaming topics for the Intellivisionaries youtube channel
1. how to configure and run jzintv
2. playing Intellivision games on retropie systems, including my Raspiboy
3. playing Intellivision games on a MAME cab

Finally get into Inty programming.

Find a couple more Intellivision flashback systems for cheap(-ish) so I can get some more spare controllers.

See if I can build a custom Vectron controller with a spinner.

Get to PRGE this year.

Get more than 6 episodes of Intellivisionaries out!

1. Finally get around to buying GoSub before it's too late.

2. I'm to the point where most of the games I need are expensive, so I guess finally get started on some of those sports games I've been putting off.

3. Comment more here so I'm not just some weirdo lurker looking for problems with Intellivision store orders. It's pretty cool being able to talk about this stuff with people whose eyes don't glaze over when you start in.

4. Make it to Portland, finally. October always seems to be the worst month for me to travel, but here's hoping.

5. Get all my consoles working.

In 2018 I plan to triple the amount for shipping on everything I sell online, especially to international bidders, because I am every bit the evil, greedy American jerkwad you think I am! BWHAHAHAHAHA!!!  :evil:  :twisted:

 

Actually, I'm hoping to finish off the oddball pieces I am missing from my 121 this year. It looks like random stuff but once I clear this list I will own every original piece (that is known anyway) for the first run of the common and not so super rare games:

 

Melody Blaster - errata sheet

Mind Strike - gatefold box

Night Stalker - painted label cart

Tower of Doom - box without bar code on bottom flap. Should just say TOWER OF DOOM there.

1 gold (international) Parker Brothers game catalog

1 Sega warranty card (from Congo Bongo)

 

After that, I guess save up for one of the Final 4 in my signature but that would take me well past 2018, lol

2018 & Intellivision.. It's pretty straightforward for me.

-more homebrews
-more mods/repairs/tinkering on consoles, controllers, etc.
-High Def.. RGB/SCART/HDMI
-Raspberry Pi's/Ultimate flashbacks and getting other emulation to work
-aquire hardware that I don't yet own: system changer, ECS, keyboard synth, etc.
-chip away at my wanted list, working my up on a few more commons, and maybe a few select, rare titles, CIB or loose. Just depends if the price is right.. Though the LTO Flash has spoiled me. :P
-more time playing actual games!

my personal goal for 2018?

stay cheap.

 

i'm happy that i will receive a LTO flash soon, that's goal enough for me.

playing more on my intellivision and finally starting to get interested in Atari2600 and Coleco (which i treated always bad because of the Inty).

 

Maybe it forces me to buy a Atari2600 and a Coleco.

 

Well and there is a third goal but i'm uncertain and i haven't the right money for it, a guy from germany sells a ECS on e-bay for €170 of which i guess it's fair.

Since two months i'm watching this offer.

 

But the topmost priority has to get me a recent computer and internet connectivity, else i can't go on here and with my projects for "Pioneer" resp. "Phoenix" which should revive Pioneer as i have seen it and as i believe what Tom Morton's idea of it was.

Spoiler

 

This isn't directly Intv related but to have a (halfways) recent computer and web connectivity is needed, else you won't here from me anymore and i can tell you right now that i will have a pause of probably half a year.

So I checked mine last night and it appears that you have discovered another variant! As I looked through them it totally made sense that this existed. I actually think it opens up the possibility of maybe 3-4 more French Canadian Coleco variations. 😱😂😎

what were the first Coleco games released? I have copies of Donkey Kong, Carnival and Mousetrap that have the smaller Coleco logo in the bottom left without the words

Manufactured by, I think these must have been the first versions since the newer ones like DK JR and Turbo have the larger logo with those words.

 

Do you have any other Coleco variations (not CBS) ?
