Game night!


Like the Movie Marathon thread, but about games and gaming. Video games, board games, card games, casino games, etc.; anything to do with a game. I suppose we could even roll in "sports" stuff.

10 things about games/gaming with something in common, 10th one chooses new topic.

Classic video games

1. Pong

3. Gorgar (Williams, 1979)

Just by merit of being the one I've played the most. A friend had this in her basement and I'd go over there all the time just to play pinball for free.

Step right up! We have a winner!
And the replay knocker going off has got to be one of the most satisfying sounds ever.

Space shuttles! An up-post! Outlane detours! Multiball! The perfect game for a tween nerd that wasn't actually good at pinball!
