We had a great time at the Seattle Commodore Computer Club last night!
Zade Alisdairi (honorary guest)
It was really a great showing and good times were had by all. We had three main systems set up:
Amiga 1000 Phoenix with 1084S monitor
Commodore 64 breadbin
Atari XEGS (mint!) with 1702 monitor
And there was also a gorgeous mint Atari Lynx with a brand new screen being handed around as well.
For games, we spend most of the night on the two 8-bit machines. An epic game of Archon between Zade and Eric got things going (Eric rocked, natch – dark side FTW) on the C64. Some of the games on the XEGS included River Raid, Robotron, Pitfall II and Joust, among others.
Lucas brought a stack of Amiga disks he’d kept for years and was pleased to find the majority of them still worked. Sadly a handful are going to soon become drink coasters, but nothing lasts forever. On the bright side, his original copy of Aaargh! worked flawlessly.
Thanks to everyone for coming out. It was a total blast.
The next meet-up date will be determined soon and posted on this blog. Stay tuned!
