There's a store in town that sells some weird relics including a
ColecoVision and an Intellivision (plus many cartridges). None of the
fabled keyboard attachments though. We're not THAT special.
Sometimes I think of buying one of these things. No money though :-( but it
might be interesting. Even if only to have some of my favourite games.
Donkey Kong and Burger Time in decent versions.
Maybe not a good enough reason.
