  1. I may be interested in one of these once they become available again.
  2. It's very tempting, although a couple of the 2600 games I have are ones like Star Master that need the Black & White button, and as far as I can tell the 7800 doesn't have one.
  3. Anybody got a spare 2600?

    Moldy games

    Thanks for the info! Now I don't feel nearly as bad about them having those marks.
  5. That's so cool! I'd love to read it if you wanted to scan it.
  6. Lucky! Every time I find a game in a Goodwill, some asshole has stolen the disc/cart out of the game case.
  7. I've got no tech skills anyway, so I'd have to send anything off for repair. Guess its back to the drawing board.

    Moldy games

    For additional clarity, these were all late-era Red Box Atari games, not Activision ones: Venture Moto Rodeo Radar Lock - this got it the worst Realsports Boxing Mouse Trap Ikari Warriors - Just the manual
  9. I've never really liked Yar's Revenge either, for the reasons described above. It just isn't fun for me.

    Moldy games

    I recently got back into Atari 2600 stuff and bought a stack of games. A fair number of them were shrinkwrapped, and as I sadly discovered today, 6 of them had brown mold either on the cartridge or the manual or both. That leaves me with two questions: Is there a way to remove mold from a cartridge label or manual without damaging it? I figure the answer is 'no' but I thought I'd ask anyway. Is the mold likely to spread to other games or manuals if I store them all together? Right now I've got the moldy ones isolated from the rest, but if it isn't going to spread, I'd prefer to keep it all together instead.
  11. I think it looks super-cool, but what's the build quality like? Are there any games it can't play? I'd like to pick up some kind of 2600, since my 7800 wont play everything. I'd love to get a Heavy-Sixer (wouldn't we all?) but I figure that's not likely to happen since demand/price is so high for those.
  12. I am looking for a nice, complete, working 2600 console. Ideally, I would love to get an Atari branded heavy-sixer, but I am sure that's what everyone else says too. I am open to any kind of US model, even the weirder ones, as long as they can play all 2600 games, unlike my poor 7800. Let me know what you have.
