Yeah!  We are gearing up towards Black Friday.. although we're going to buck the trend and do it a few days earlier so we don't get lost in the shuffle.  :)

 

20% discount coming for mailing list folks... so wait til the e-mail comes before you get anything new!

 

Listened to folks in here asking for all different color shirts with JUST the Running Man logo! 

Done deal!!  Coming soon!!  Should be in there over the next few days.  LOTS of choices!

Made this today for lunch. Listening to this lady brings me right back to my childhood. My grandmother had the same broken English, same mannerisms, same wonderful garden in her backyard.

 

I made this for dinner after finding your video.  It turned out amazingly!  Everyone loved it, and really, it's so simple!  Thanks for sharing!

Bro... get a can of clams in water... like 8 oz.

 

in a separate pan at med-high heat, a good 2 tablespoons (little more, make it nice a big) and some chili powder (NOT pepper) to it and heat it up.

Chop thin a few garlic cloves (usually 3 good ones..4 if small)...and mince up some white onions.. you can use a Ninja if you have one.

When the chili powder starts coming together in the oil, its nice and hot.  Toss all that in and slightly brown it... moving in around a lot, it will burn... and get ready when the

family smells it, they'll come running.

Take the clams and toss them in, keep everything moving and slightly brown the clams...not too much.  Add in some cooking wine to taste... a good splash or two.

 

keep it all moving till it's cooked... remove from heat and dump it all right on top of what her recipe is.  That's a nice Spaghetti and Clam in Garlic/Wine sauce.

 

Pop a nice bottle of white wine, some Romano (I'm biased...it's my last name) or Parmesan cheese... and you're eating like a Sicilian... LOL!

 

Oh yeah... Luciano, Dean or Frankie has to be playing softly when you're cooking... and you have to be drinking the wine as well.

 

Next up... Sausage and Broccoli rabe with sun-dried tomatoes and peas in a nice garlic/wine sauce... hot pepper and bow-tie pasta.  Cheese to taste..

Here's a little Saturday morning fun for ya...

 

Our first pass of Founders pins are in!  Which one does everyone like the most?

 

I'm kinda digging the darker wood on the left.  Really makes the Running Man pop!

 

Thoughts?

 

Let me know your favorite and why.

Both nice but I prefer the left one, better contrast with the running man and wood texture more similar to the original Inty

I like both.  The one on the left is my choice.  It looks better.

Darker is my preference, closer to OG Intellivision.

The darker backed one looks fantastic so that would be my vote

Dark on the left. Just looks a bit nicer in comparison.

How-D All,

 

I agree with everyone so far, DIGGING the dark wood look! It looks like it should match closely with the Founder's Edition consoles.

 

Another Great Job by You and the Team Tommy!

 

Please share these wishes to You and Yours, and the whole Team there, for a Happy and safe 2020 Holiday season, and a prosperous New Year, from Me and Mine here in Texas.

 

B

 

p.s. - Hope everything keeps on track for April!

 

My birthday falls right within Your current scheduled countdown, so I may miss out on my Amico birthday recognition this year, but it will still be a wonderful gift to have right around my birthday time!

Tommy,

 

haven't read many questions/information about the pool/billard game on your system, so I hope you can share some facts here: Will motion control be involved in a way? Will it also contain some "wacky fun modes" (e.g. adding obstacles)? Will there also be pit pat tables (mixture between pool & miniature golf)?

Maybe it's the lighting, but I like the one on the right more. It seems crisper to me, more defined. I think the Running Man kind of gets washed out in the darker one.  In the end, I like them both so it doesn't really matter.

The darker one on the left  Because it looks nice and it’s more like the classic intellivision color

I do agree that the one on the right looks crisper and more defined for some reason but it’s got to be the one on the left to match the intellivision wood grain color better.

Ecco un po 'di divertimento sabato mattina per te ...

 

Il nostro primo passaggio di spille Founders è arrivato! Quale piace a tutti di più?

 

Sto scavando un po 'nel bosco più scuro a sinistra. Fa davvero apparire il Running Man!

 

Pensieri?

 

Fammi sapere il tuo preferito e perché.

 

20201120_143905.thumb.jpg.ebbcb1c6dea908a3f455c5c5a315f7ef.jpg

I too, like the other guys, prefer the one on the left because it is more reminiscent of the original Intellivision colors.  And then it is certainly more beautiful.

The they both look really nice, but if i had to choose I’d go with the darker one one the left, looks more like the wood on the original intellivision
