Nintendo, 1982
FOR SALE $400 local only

This was the third game in the collection. I bought this from a online auction I think in 1998 from some fellas in Beaumont,Texas. They had a bunch of cool games for sale that are untouchable today, I thought they would always be easy to get. This game went straight to Wade's house and he wasnt too thrilled about it but in the end it was cool. We loved the hell out of this game, played many games and drank many beers trying to outdo each others high score. Work wise I replaced the power supply once and I gave the game a make over, sanding the paint, priming it and painting it with a color matched at Home Depot and buying a NOS control panel and marquee and replacing the old broke and yellowed T-moulding with new stuff. I couldnt find better side art but that isnt that important anyways. The game looks like new now, unless you look very good. Im happy with it. The next project on this game is rebuilding the sound amp, its dying slowly and the audio is all distorted at low levels. Just need to get motivated. Its a bitch removing the monitor to get to all of it.
