Anyone do anything interesting? What games have you been playing? Anyone get any good game hauls?

Took a trip to Port Elgin, ON for a beach vacation on Lake Huron as the "summer getaway." We had great weather so it was a great time to be on the water. It was overall low-key, just as I wanted it - basically mornings and afternoons at the beach. Also took a tour of the Bruce Power Nuclear site - that was super interesting. I also dropped into a local used video game store, Electron Depot, but I didn't snag any games.

On the gaming front, I've been working away at trying to get a decent score on Astro Blaster. The high score at Twin Galaxies seems unattainable right now unless I figure out a way to get past Wave 6. Where there's a will, there's a way (?)

Not one but TWO rotary joy games???

Must be nice. Wish I had one! I'd make it a multi-rotary cab though.

But not much room either. I have a darn old beetle in the way. fuzz!

Well actually...
I have a restored Ikari Warriors rotary and cal 50 is also rotary. So 4 at the moment. I also plan on building heavy barrel. I like the rotary games.
