Some Amiga game pickups

by mattsoft Sun Jul 02, 2017 7:50 am

My latest game pickups from an old timer in New Mexico who is clearing out his stash:

Ikari Warriors
Arkanoid
Test Drive
Sword of Sodan (biggest sprites ever?)
Road Rash
Lion Heart (my personal favorite)
Aaargh! (with no less than 3 As)

Sweeet! Those look near-mint. And the Road Rash is still shrink-wrapped? Wow - how'd you find these?

Road Rash is still wrapped. Some are pretty faded (like Sword of Sodan), but they are in good working shape.

There is this guy in Deming, NM who has a bunch of Amiga stuff on eBay several months ago. I bought a couple of items (an old Amiga 1300 genlock and 1010 floppy drive for my 1000) and struck up a conversation on the side. I asked him if he could let me know before he posts stuff so I can take a look, and he agreed. He's been giving me the heads-up ever since. I've bought a few hundred clams worth of stuff from him, so I think he knows I'm good for it and am easy money. Hah! I get a price break, and he offloads them quickly. Win-win I guess. :)

That's awesome.

I'm thinking more and more we do a meetup this summer. I need to find a location that's seems doable here in seattle for everyone.

And I need to come up with a name, I guess.
PNW Commodore Club?
Seattle Commodore User Group?
Ideas?

I think we could bring 2-3 things we're proud of to show, and maybe a small pile of things to trade/sell. Even if no one wants anything could be cool to look over.

I wish my company's bar was in Seattle and not Ann Arbor! That would be a great spot.

Worth chewing over for sure.

There is the Seattle Retro Computing Society: http://www.seattleretrocomputing.com

I haven't been to a meeting, but it looks like they are mostly into maker stuff and really, really old computers. We could always attend one of their meetings with our gear. They meet in Redmond.
