New Bump N Jump Bezel Installed
If you read below the news update on 11/20/08 you will see that the Post Office viciously destroyed a glass bezel that I purchased for my
Bump N Jump
. When I say destroyed, it was like in a million pieces. I mean, did they play frisbee with it in the back office? Or kick the box
around in a nice friendly game of soccer. Unfortunately, we will never know.
Multi Q*bert kit purchased and installed
Q*bert is one of my all time favorite games. It was the game I could last the longest on for a quarter, sometimes from 20 to 30 minutes. That's pretty good
for a 10 year old. The first chance I got I picked up my own Q*bert to relive all those memories.
The multi Q*bert allows you to run the following games:
Undocumented Spy Hunter Attract Sounds
Most arcade games have a setting to turn on or off the attract sounds for a games. This is the sound that plays when a game is not being played. The theory is that these sounds
will attract you to a game, and tempt you into coughing up a quarter to see what it is about.
Now Spy Hunter is a great game, and its Peter Gunn theme song is fantastic. However, Spy Hunter is no exception when
it comes to default attract sounds.
New acquisition - A sweet, sweet Spy Hunter
From the previous post I had went to an auction recently and saw a Spy Hunter, one of the last few must-have games on my list.
This one I wasn't going to let go.
I Spied a Spy Hunter at a Super Auctions
Yesterday was a Super Auctions saturday. That means arcade games galore. You bid, they bid, it all depends on how bad you want any particular game.
There were so many classics at this auction, and so little space for anyone who collects them.
The collecting hobby has been good to me. I have managed to get most games on my top 10 list.
Bump N Jump Bezel - Destroyed
What you are looking at here was a near perfect Bump N Jump bezel that I bought from a fellow collector to finish off my new Bump N Jump game. This
can only be explained by the fact that last friday was soccer friday for the United States Post office, and they decided to use my package as the ball.
After a bit of a headache and a bit of a seller mixup, the Uniwars game is now sold. Hopefully it will get a little more love than I was willing to give to it.
That precious floor space has to be reserved for a Star Wars or Spy Hunter. In the end I can't save them all.
SOLD: Street Fighter II
One of the games I picked up in the Craigslist haul has been sold to a fellow collector. It certainly is a nice little jamma cab so it will go to a good home. Space is at a premium lately, so its great to claim it back.
