Merry Christmas everyone! Today's episode is about the homebrew game called Toyshop Trouble, and also your Christmas Atari 2600 memories! I was absolutely not expecting more submissions than last year's Christmas show, thank you so much! I love hearing your memories of the 2600 and the Christmas ones are terrific. The show will return on January 7th with Rabbit Transit and The Official Frogger by Starpath. Upcoming games will include Star Raiders by Atari; Okie Dokie and Stell-A-Sketch by Bob Colbert; Sorcerer, Firefly, and Starfox by Mythicon; and Hangman and Roadrunner by Atari. Any feedback you have on these or any games I've already covered can be sent to 2600gamebygame@podcast.net. Thank you all so much for a wonderful year, and I wish you all Merry Every Holiday!

This episode was totally unplanned (you can tell by listening) and I lay the blame at the feet of No Quarter podcast. I just wanted to talk about arcade games for a bit, so here it is. I hope you can get some enjoyment out of it. Also, if you have Christmas memories or feedback for Toyshop Trouble, please get it to me by the 19th to be included in the show. You can send it to 2600gamebygame@comcast.net. Thanks everybody, enjoy your week!

Today I am discussing in horribly long detail Raiders of the Lost Ark by Atari. This is the result of 2 weeks of research and 3 hours of recording, probably the most I've put into a show so far. I really hope you enjoy it and don't get too bored. Once again, your feedback makes the show better and I thank you for that. No show next week due to cookies. The Christmas memories episode will come out the week of Christmas. Additionally I will be looking at the homebrew title Toyshop Trouble, which is really a great game. Unfortunately I don't have the cash to buy this right now, nor would it get here in time if I did. But I need to start covering Christmas games, so I should be able to get this one done in time. Please send me your Atari Christmas memories and any feedback for Toyshop Trouble by December 19th for it to be included in the show. You can send that to 2600gamebygame@comcast.net. Thank you all so much for listening!

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving, if you celebrate that sort of thing. Thank you for your patience waiting for a new episode, it will be much worse this month. :(  Speaking of new episodes, next week I will be looking at Raiders of the Lost Ark, by Atari. I am very glad that I made that its own show, I already have 12 pages of notes just on the manual and hint sheets! It will probably be a long show, so hopefully that will tide you over for awhile. GET IT, TIDINGS! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Sorry. After Raiders I most likely won't be doing anymore games until 2015, but that is tentative. Also, please send me your Christmas memories by December 19th so I can record the Christmas memories show that weekend. Please don't take me for one of those militant Christmas people, I just didn't get any Hanukkah or Kwanzaa memories last year. If you have some, please send them to me at 2600gamebygame@comcast.net. I hope to get another show's worth of Christmas stories, I think last year's was awesome. Thanks for listening everyone!
