Today, I received a '77 Mattel Electronics Football!

Came with a leather case ... ?

… and I still have to add the 9v AC adapter (battery-freedom!) to the Football to join the handheld group in my office. :D

Btw, not that I care nor have I seen the movie yet, but this Football was kinda in the new Guardians of the Galaxy 2 movie (but they used the year 2000 version :? ).

FORE!

'83 Tandy Championship Electronic Golf came in the mail today!

Instructions decal on back was missing so I recreated it from a decent Epay image. PHEW! Now I know how to play!

... but I'm out of 9v AC adapters. Have to use a battery for now ... :cry:

GAME ON!

Did my first tube swap yesterday.
Was never happy with the monitor in my Killer Instinct cab.
Found a suitable 25" donor tube from a 2002 Sharp TV. Horizontal/Vertical yoke readings were very close to those of a K7000, so I did the swap and kept the TV yoke in place (I know there are debates on whether one should do this, but I didn't want to mess with convergence and purity settings). Results were overall good. Nice to see vibrant colors back in my game!

Put the old tube in the TV frame. Will drop at recycling center this weekend after I strip the yoke off of it.

A few days ago, I made my '83 Chexx a little more flexible to go down narrow stairs, not unlike new Chexx bases.

Game on!

Played Star Wars again. Like it. Will let Walt buy it.
Played Dialed In. Like it. Will let Wong buy/trade for it.

What is next I wonder...
Something will happen.
