  1. less than a week until I can start play stay frosty 2

    1. atari2600land


      Why limit yourself? Play it whenever you feel like it.

    2. masschamber


      nah, makes it sweeter when it is an annual treat

  2. I like atari stunt cycle

    1. Cobra Kai

      Cobra Kai

      I used to play this in the arcade at Cedar Point. I always thought it was weird that you could mess around with it in the attract/demo mode. 

  3. tracked down jump buggy I think that completes the western arcadia 2001 library, except for the super obscure Italian stuff.

  4. Weis's white birch beer is fantastic

    1. moycon


      I'll drink anything with beer in it name. 

    2. GoldLeader


      Right on!  We sell Boylan's Birch beers in bottles at the restaurant I work at, and their Black Cherry and Creme sodas too.

  5. apparently rock lords have gained some semblance of value, how bizarre

    1. thanatos


      Like, the toys even lamer than Go-Bots (compared to Transformers)?  Weird!

    2. masschamber


      that's what I thought too

    3. thanatos


      I was a kid when those came out, and thought it was the stupidest thing ever.  "So, it turns into a rock?  Yay, fun!"  I don't remember any friends that had or wanted those either.

  6. So I ordered Chinese food delivered and wrote in the instructions not to include any sauce packets, you better believe they sent like 40 packets

    1. retrorussell


      Of course.  Probably a billion packets of sesame seeds, several bags of crispy noodles and 500 fortune cookies too.

    2. GoldLeader


      So,  That's how ya do it!

      You could always sew them into a quilt.

  7. gave myself a crazy Charlie horse this morning

    1. DoctorSpuds


      Oh man, those suck. I once got so angry at Megaman 2 that I gave myself a Charlie Horse on accident from clenching so hard.

    2. pacman000


      I'm sorry. That always hurts.

    3. GoldLeader


      Why did you do that?






      Haaaa...just kidding...As you can read that as if to say you did it on purpose.  Those do suck, but I bet you're fine now, hopefully.

  8. so I made mash potatoes tonight for dinner, and my daughter had one bite,  she asked if she could have more.  I said of course, and I turn around to grab a little bowl for her and when I look back she had walked off with the entire gallon container I had made them in.

    1. masschamber


      and incase any one was interested the potatoes were fantastic, they were served with mixed vegetables, and some weird (but good) asian pork my wife makes

    2. doctorclu


      Love this story!  :)


    3. carlsson


      I hope that "weird Asian pork" doesn't equal pangolin or similar.

  9. Daughter went tricking or treating as smoke from rainbow 6 siege like she wanted,  very few people were taking part, but still it was a lot of fun.  Then we all played Halloween on the 2600 for a little while and closed out with spooky cartoons like the Garfield Halloween special

    1. Stephen


      Nice!  We bought a TON of candy, and sadly, the turnout was very poor.  Sucks too.  Last year, cancelled due to inclement weather.  Last 3 years before that, snow.  Tonight - 43 degrees, sunny, and 2nd full moon of the month.

    2. atari2600land


      We never get any trick-or-treaters, so it has just been business as usual around here.

  10. alright, I got grand slam tennis for the arcadia 2001 (leisure vision label, but I don't worry about that) I think I'm down to just jump bug for north american releases, does anyone have a list of all the canadian leisure vision games?

  11. probably going to be the final score of the year, but someone was tossing an atari and a mountain of common games, 

    so I kept a heavy sixer telegames from the trash, but the sound doesn't work right now, going to look into it tomorrow

    1. joeatari1


      The goalie slides across the goal mouth.  Whoa! Kick save and a beauty!  Very nice to rescue a H6er from the garbage heap.  Congrats on the pickup.

  12. Does anyone know what to use for proof of value when payment was received through ebay managed payments? 

    The usps smashed one of my packages to bits and they claim the item receipt is insufficient proof of vallue.

    1. Shawn


      The receipt is all you need. That is a delay tactic cause they wanna see if they can brush you off without paying out the insurance. They are scum. Stick to your guns and you will be fine. Be sure to take names and ID numbers of the people who give you a hard time along the way towards getting exactly what you are entitled to and which you have paid for with your insured package they wrecked.

  13. found an odyssey game (as in odyssey 1!) at the flea market today. 

    1. high voltage
    2. GoldLeader


      Jesus Breakdancing Christmas !  


      I don't think I've even seen an NES game at a flea market,  LOL.



    3. masschamber


      Guy wanted 3 bucks for it, needless to say I. Bought it, wipeout, no manual or pegs,  but still box, board and overlays are nice

  14. hit a garage sale today, got a  prototype of enduro! (among some otherthings) unfortunately the proto is from late january 83 so probably no different from release

    1. masschamber


      yep, same as retail

    2. Rogerpoco
  15. man, california games, electrocop, and batman returns boxes are really hard to find for the lynx, so is lemmings, but atleast that is also a rare game

    1. masschamber


      any chance you have either of those 3 and be willing to part with them, or hard drivin'

    2. atari2600land


      I found about a dozen empty Lynx game boxes, none of which were for the games you wanted.

    3. masschamber


      thanks for  checking,

  16. I think someone in the postal service opened a package and stole the content, bought an nes game off of amazon and the package arrived torn open and empty

    1. Shawn


      Take pictures and start some complaints to the right departments.

    2. CaptainCanadian


      Thats bs, they should reimburse you for that.

  17. anyone want an intellivision mystery box for 25 shipped to the us (includes includes intellivoice and 20+ games, not just the most commons games either)

    1. masschamber


      well that's gone, 

    2. joeatari1


      That was quick!  I refreshed my screen and there was your post.  Lucky I guess (today anyway).

    3. haunted_ipa_


      that's awesome!

  18. Finished sorting a huge nes lot I picked up locally, big cache of vectrex stuff under a bunch of accessories,  so expect some carts with overlays on the market place soon.

  19. My daughter has decided to go trick or treating as Smoke from rainbow six siege this year, she is super funny looking in the costume

  20. So I bought a lot of nes games off of craigslist, and the guy wanted 800 dollars for it, came with probably 2000 dollars worth of stuff,  He said I was the only person that didn't offer under 500 dollars, it never ceases to amaze me how much of cheapskates the majority of craigslist users are.

    1. OldSchoolRetroGamer


      Good for you mean, pays to be FAIR, win win for you both! 

    2. GoldLeader




      Some people also love shopping but don't have much money...Ya might say their appetite is bigger than their wallet.

  21.  list a rare atari game, expect a lowball from school_girl_in_a_short_dress

  22. I decided to finally rebuild some 5200 controllers I've had sitting around a few months (I need to get away from lesson planning for a little while)  Anyone 4 of the 6 are rev 9 pcbs, which is awesome since they'll actually be reliable with the carbon pads coated in silver. no need to buy replacement flex circuits for them.

  23. I was asked my what was my favorite star wars movie today, so I said space balls.

    1. ClassicGMR
    2. Theallknowingsause


      I have yet to watch Space Balls,
      might sit down and watch it with my Mom (she's a huge Star Wars fanatic)

    3. doctorclu


      Even enjoyed the Space Balls animated series.  :D

    2. Crazy Climber
