Some reason I had a slight bout of mental illnes, I must of to sell these games!

Well over the years during collecting I had a few more games and I got rid of them for some stupid reason or another. Look below to see how dumb I was.

ZAXXON

This was a cool game. Wade and I was able to but this for $100. The cabinet was crappy, we even had to nail it in order to keep it from falling over while we moved it. But after all was said and done, this was the ONLY game I had that never had ANY problems! It was at some old ladies house near here. The story was, it was for her son. He got the games as payment for some kinda plumbing or electrical work he did. Well he didnt use them and she was tired of having it in her garage, so she put it in a penny savers flyer for $100. But you had to buy both games to get it at $100 each. When we found out what the other was, we jumped up and got there as fast as we could! I ended up selling it for $100.

DEFENDER

Defender cocktail #2

This is the second game in the collection. Wade and I went in half on this cocktail game in 1997. It was semi local, about 40 miles away from Wade's house. By the way, for a few months, all the games were at Wade's since I was still living at home with my Dad like a big loser. I will tell you when they all made the big move to my place. This game wasnt my favorite either, but it was another classic and it was a cocktail so that made it more desired by Wade and I. Another best friend, Joe H. was really into this game. I just liked the idea of having two games in our possesion. We had it for about 3 years and it started to act up big time. We replaced the batteries, then I replaced the power supply with a adjustable Williams version converted by Bob Roberts, but it didnt do the trick. At this time, Wade was ready to make room, he wasnt into the games anymore like in the beginning. We ended selling it to a local for the same price we paid for it. During this time I found another Defender cocktail for a very good price and tried to repair it, but that wasnt a priority since it wasnt my favorite game , so eventually a buyer found my old web page and made an offer and I agreed to strip it for parts and sell it all minus the cabinet. So I can say that I actually had two Defender cocktails at once! It was fun while they were around.
