I am planning to have a hotel room party at Penguicon this year, bringing my old game consoles out of storage. (Actually two parties, one on Friday and one on Saturday, if all goes well.)
I started by testing out a Coleco "Telstar" Pong and the Atari 2600 yesterday. You can see my team of playtesters trying out some "big-screen" Pong action here:
Here is just a taste of the excitement in store... :) Next I'll be pulling out the Intellivision, Vectrex, and whatever else I can dig up. If anyone has some smallish TV's (preferable analog!) they want to loan for the weekend, I could probably use them.
Perhaps I'll throw in some Apple II games, or some other system emulators. Moria/Angband? Text Adventures? Trek? Am I crazy enough to bring in a full-sized arcade game? The possibilities are endless, but the hotel room is not, unfortunately. If only I had a TARDIS...
