This week I look at Fast Eddie and Deadly Duck by 20th Century Fox, makers of fine films and video games. Next week it's back to the early days of Atari with Surround and Hunt 'n' Score, aka A Game of Concentration. Upcoming games include Suicide Mission and Killer Satellites by Starpath; James Bond 007 and Gyruss by Parker Brothers; Codebreaker, Flag Capture & Video Chess by Atari; Title Match Pro Wrestling and Skateboardin' by Absolute, and a big one, Pac-Man by Atari. That one should generate some discussion. Send me feedback, including your memories and opinions of these games and any of the games I've covered so far to 2600gamebygame@comcast.net. Thanks everyone!

This week I talk about Othello and RealSports Baseball, the latter being the first silver label game that I'm discussing! Rick from the Intellivisionaries Podcast and I pitted our respective consoles against each other in Reversi/Othello, which you can watch on Youtube via the link below. Special thanks to Rick for suggesting this, and also for recording it and hosting it on the Intellivisionaries Youtube page! Next week I'll be talking about Fast Eddie and Deadly Duck by Sirius/20th Century Fox. Upcoming games include Surround and A Game of Concentration (AKA Hunt 'n' Score) by Atari; Suicide Mission and Killer Satellites by Starpath; James Bond 007 and Gyruss by Parker Brothers; Codebreaker, Flag Capture & Video Chess by Atari; and Title Match Pro Wrestling and Skateboardin' by Absolute. You can send your thoughts and memories of these games or any games I've already covered to 2600gamebygame@comcast.net. Your submissions are what make this show fun! Thank you everyone!

This week's episode is about two more Activision games, Stampede and Ice Hockey. These games are so simple that I think I spent much more time on the packaging then on the actual gameplay! Next week is two more Atari games, Othello and RealSports Baseball (I think it's the first Atari silver label cart in the podcast that wasn't a reissue). Coming up isFast Eddie and Deadly Duck by Sirius/20th Century Fox; Surround and A Game of Concentration (AKA Hunt 'n' Score) by Atari; Suicide Mission and Killer Satellites by Starpath; James Bond 007 and Gyruss by Parker Brothers; and Codebreaker, Flag Capture & Video Chess by Atari. If you have any stories or memories for these games or any games I've already covered, send your email or audio submission to 2600gamebygame@comcast.net. Thanks everyone!

Hi ho everyone! Episode 51 deals with Blueprint and Solar Fox by CBS Electronics, both really great games for the 2600 in my opinion. Next week I'll be looking at Stampede and Ice Hockey by Activision. In the coming weeks you can expect to hear about Othello and RealSports Baseball by Atari; Fast Eddie and Deadly Duck by 20th Century Fox/Sirius; Surround and A Game Of Concentration (aka Hunt 'n' Score) by Atari; and Suicide Mission and Killer Satellites by Starpath. If you have any stories or memories for these games or any of the games I've already covered, I want to hear from you! Send an email or an audio submission to 2600gamebygame@comcast.net. You can also comment on Facebook or Twitter. Thanks for listening everyone, have a great week!
