I need some help identifying some Intellivision carts!

Recommended Posts

I bought some intellivision games today and these were in the box. I thought they were just games taken out of the shell, but the person I bought them from said they haven't been touched in years. He said his at her brought them home from work when he worked for Mattel. One is obviously a test cartridge, but I've never seen one like it. I have no clue what the other three are because I do not currently have a system. I was hoping someone would know what they are. I know it's a longshot, but if anyone knows, it'll be the folks here.

Thanks for any help!

I'm afraid no one of these looks like a prototype. One is a Mattel Intellivision test cartridge and the other three are production games.

The rom chips on the vegas cartridge has an early 1979 date. The Intellivision was test marketed in December 1979. I havent seen the inside of alot of intellivision cartridges but I can't see that wire being part of a production cartridge.

 

Prototypes are usually on eproms. These might be pre-production cartridges before the Intellivision was test marketed. Some games were programmed in summer 1978. Poker & Blackjack might have been a little later.

 

It would be worth checking out whats on these early cartridges. What are the games? I'm guessing one is Poker & Blackjack. Maybe there are some Rom variations.

That wire is connected to the master clock signal of the cartridge port; is the other end connected to anything? I wonder what's on that cartrdige.

 

The roms marked ro3-9504-x04 is LV Poker & Blackjack, there's at least two known rom variants.

Anyone know what rom ro3-9504-x05 is?

 

edit:

there's something handwritten on the test cartridge label; can you make out what it says?

What's the test cartridge worth?

Assuming it's working you could probably get at least $100
