Way back in 2001, when I was living in San Francisco, I had a local friend with whom I would play classic games. He had a very nice Intellivision lot with ten or so CIB games, including Dungeons & Dragons and Sea Battle. When my job situation changed and I moved to Orlando, he graciously lent me the whole thing in exchange for me loaning him my Casio keyboard.
Now, 17 years later, the loan has ended and I am sending the unit back to him. I'm sad about it, but glad for the many years of Intv fun I've had.
I'm not in a position to splurge on a new lot, so I'll have to make due with my Intellivision Flashback unit. If I come across a good deal on a lot, maybe I'll get it, but that seems unlikely.
I know this has nothing to do with the podcast, but this is the only classic game forum in which I invest time, so I thought I'd share it here.

I'm glad you shared, Ed, that's an interesting story! Like Strudders, I too am surprised that such a long-term loan actually came to a proper conclusion!
I also very much enjoy your feedback on the show! You sounded a bit reluctant to do more than just your introductory submission, but I'm glad you have continued. You are, like everyone who submits feedback, a significant part of what makes the A2600GBG my favorite podcast!
P.S. Is that you in the corner? Is that you in the spot... light... ?

The FB is a great Pnp. Over the past year, I've been trying to pick up any of the original releases I either don't have or haven't reviewed (I've reviewed 21 games so far). Now I'm on the lookout for an ECS.
