This week I'm looking at two of the CBS Electronics Ram Plus games, Tunnel Runner and Omega Race, as well as the Booster Grip controller! Thanks for your patience this week, and thanks again for the donations, it is greatly appreciated. I think I have settled on a mixer so I can record the sounds from the 2600 itself, and also, I think I may be able to use that to play the audio submissions live so you can hear me react to them. My current mixer is a Kitchen Aid, so that one won't work. Next episode will be about Sky Skipper and Tutankham by Parker Brothers, so if you have any feedback on those games or games I've already covered, please send it to, or Thank you so much for listening, you guys are the best!!
