Yes, finally someone who got them all correct 😄 The bowling/cornhole pair is very equal to me, as I havent seen anything of Bowling yet I might have chosen cornhole, but I imagine both will be played a lot in my house.  

believe the correct answers are:

 

Cloudy Night

Armor Planes

Socball

Bowl-hole

Cracker Squad

Knievel Racing

Breakmissile

 

It's not against the rules to tell the genie you wish for infinite wishes.  He doesn't have to say yes, but, can't hurt to try.

For Cracker Squad, did you hesitate with Safe Squad ? 😁

I've always wondered about the 'infinite wishes' clause. Technically, a genie can totally grant you infinite wishes, providing said genie never grants any of the extra wishes. I believe that would satisfy both clauses: the genie allows the person to wish to their heart's content, but only grants the first three of those wishes. Does that read right?

Baseball

Cornhole

Safe Cracker

Evel Knievel

There can be no Missile Command without a trackball and no Breakout without a paddle, but since there may be a paddle/spinner attachment and multiple trackballs is a hard sell for 4-6 multiplayer, I'll go along and answer: Breakout.

Not an incorrect list in the whole bunch but if I had to grab 4 games to take to the deserted island,  I'd grab the newly imagined Baseball (the reason I bought the 2609), Cloudy Mountain (the games snake hisses actually gave me angst), Bi-planes (the original was a blast and so simple to play) and Space Battle (a mix between IntvDaves recently updated original which looks great and I.E.s re imagined game).

 

 

Anything else would just be icing on the cake.

Actually the touchscreen works rather well for missile command and breakout. And this is coming from someone with missile command with a trackball

Howdy Sir,

 

Please find my list below.

 

Info You requested :

 

Cloudy Mountain - Have been a D & D JUNKIE ever since I first touched a Monster Manual, Dungeon Master's Guide, or set of dice, let alone any of the wonderful iterations of D & D games we were given by the original Intellivision Peeps back in the day!

 

Biplanes - CAN'T WAIT to do my first 360 dive bomb and shoot the other person out of the sky! The Karma engine ®️ ™️ will be the ONLY reason people will play this game with me now, NO ONE would play Triple Action's Biplane game with me back in the day! 😁

 

Baseball - But would REALLY prefer Horse Racing, Ice Hockey, or Boxing in that order 

 

Bowling - Would REALLY like a more true-to-life version of "bowling", but I think we aren't getting that until year two or three based on what I have previously read on responses on the boards

 

Bomb Squad - Just want ANYTHING to remind me of the old IntelliVoice ®️ ™️ games!

 

Auto Racing - SO GLAD to see they are leaving in the ability to go off the track/screen and come back on again like in the original Intellivision Auto Racing game!

 

Missile Command or Breakout - This one is my HARDEST CHOICE! I WILL DEFINITELY BE GETTING BOTH OF THESE ON THE FIRST DAY THEY BECOME AVAILABLE! BUT IF I HAVE TO PICK ONE... I GUESS I'LL JUST HAVE TO PICK Missile Command. 😉At this point from what we've seen it looks like it has WAY MORE couch co-op "fun" built in than what's on tap for Breakout.

 

But, with all of the above choices being made, I can honestly say that of all fourteen, with what we have been shown, I currently plan on purchasing at least 9/14 of them on the first day they become available.

 

Hope this answers Yer questions Sir!


Always Happy to confuse matters more with providing useless information from here! 😉

 

Thanks,
B

Waiting for an announcement of Playing with Sticks Simulator, but am also excited about the above list. Winners:
 

Cloudy Mountain. I owned both games as a kid, and was fond of both. Liked Cloudy Mountain more, and am more excited for Cloudy Mountain. 
 

Biplanes. I owned Armor Battle as a kid, and liked it, but am more excited for Biplanes, even though I did not have Triple Action. 
 

Soccer. I had not even thought about Soccer again until this list. Owned both games as a kid, and liked them both a lot. Remember trying to field every ball with the pitcher first, which usually worked. Being reminded of the Soccer warp has me excited again, and broke the tie. 
 

Cornhole. Played many bowling games over the years, am excited for Cornhole, no matter how dirty that sounds. 
 

Bomb Squad. Loved the original, and I did not have Safecracker, only my friend did. Currently way more excited for Bomb Squad. 
 

Evel Knievel. Auto Racing was a family favorite growing up. Bumping someone so they would crash, or at least get you an “ahead” point was a blast. Since we played that so much, I feel it will be hard to replicate. Plus I had some Evel toys too when I was young, and he was so darn reckless to a cool fault. 
 

Breakout. I actually was a Circus Atari fan more than breakout, but I always became bored fast with Missle Command. Tried to 
relive Circus Atari with a Pong Flashback, but it did not control as precisely as original Atari, which ruins the experience. If the controls are right Breakout will be fun. 
 

I am quite confident I will own all 14 of these.

my list goes like this

 

Night Stalker barely trumps Cloudy Mountain

Armour Battle edges Biplanes

Bowling but cornhole looks fun

Bomb squad

auto racing

 

last one, I love both .Missile Command is very stressful and Breakout is sort of relaxing.

it could go either way depending on my needs and wants :)

In the same spirit as Tommy's either or List, here's the same thing but all the games are ones that have been referenced as possible future Amico games but with little to no information available.

 

Beauty and the Beast  OR    Miner 2049

Demon Attack             OR    Cosmic Ark

Dracula                      OR    Dragonfire

Burgertime                 OR    Lock N Chase

Microsurgeon              OR    Tron Deadly Disc

Lode Runner               OR    Adventure

 

my list would be

 

Beauty and the beast

Demon Attack

Dracula

Lock N Chase

Tron(or if rights cant be acquired "somebody's...) Deadly Disc

 

also of the games listed above which do you think are the MOST and LEAST likely to ever appear on the Amico?

Offices can open if they follow state guidelines e.g. distancing, disinfecting, etc.  I think they are in orange county.

Generally things aren't looking great in Cali :(, the California governor just re-closed bars in 7 counties due to increased Covid rates and the Orange County numbers (where IE headquarters is located) are going the wrong direction over the last two weeks.

Correct.  Things actually getting worse in Orange County... not better.

 

Only a few people are back at the office.
