Bring E.T. and Backgammon. Those are the best games for the 2600, so it's a no brainer.

If you want to play on the screen at the same time, so nobody has to wait for their turn, see if you have any of these games:

 

Can somebody give me a list of 2600 games that had simultaneous play?

I THINK this is complete

 

http://www.atariage.com/forums/index.php?s...hl=simultaneous

 

------------------------------

 

For the 2600, is this all the game that both players are on screen doing stuff at once?

 

Turn based games like Checkers or 3-D Tic Tac Toe were omitted because you can't do anything until your opponent does first

 

This also excludes unreleased prototypes, name variations for the Sears carts and PAL games

Since you're playing with your folks, you'll want plenty of two-player games, so here are my picks:

 

Ms. Pac-Man or Jr. Pac-Man (You need at least one Pac-Man game, and these two are the best.)

Dodge 'Em (Great simultaneous two-player fun.)

Combat (Too much of a classic not to include, and it can only be played by two human players.)

Missile Command (Another classic with a two-player option.)

Warlords (If you need multi-player games, this one is a no-brainer.)

Frogger (A decent version of the arcade game, and it offers a two-player option.)

 

If you want to substitute any of these, other good ones you might consider are Super Breakout, Demons to Diamonds, or Asteroids, all of which offer two-player options.

Ms. Pac-Man only has a one player option. It dosen't really matter, we take turns for one player games all the time. Thanks for the votes. :)

Well, geez ... I guess the Ms. Pac-Man entry in the database gave me incorrect information. Since that's the case, definitely consider bringing Jr. Pac-Man instead of Ms. Pac-Man; they're both good translations, but I find Jr. Pac-Man to be much more challenging.

Yes. That's very decieving. I just realized m Jr. Pac-Man cart is cracked... I can fix that tomorrow by swapping backs with a Pac-Man cart or E.T. cart.

So far it looks like Dig Dug, River Raid, and Ms. Pac-Mna are a must. :)

No Harmony cart... I mean original games. I want a Harmony, though.

My home-made Atari Vacation Center can hold 5, and the system stores one. I unfortunately don't have Indy 500 or Othello yet. :(

Is it me, or does this thread feel like it's from 1982? Bringing an Atari to the ski chalet? They'll buy TWO Atari cartridges per console!

I've made similar posts while in a bad mood. Is this thread any worse than the 200th thread asking what your favorite Atari game is?

Play with children? Jr. Pac is 10. I consider responding to his "kiddish" topics as playing with children.
