My first ever Atari machine, had when I was around 14 years old I think. Going to see if I can get it going on my girlfriends TV over the weekend!

Sadly not many games, centipede, pole position, phoenix, space invaders.

Will likely have to look on evilbay for some games, any suggestions ?

Uh. The 2600 is a bit too old and basic for me. Hope you'll have lots of fun with it though! 😉

Google Mr Atari (Sijmen Schouten).
He may have a couple of games. (Understatement :) )
Have funwith the unit and games.
I think part of the attraction is that it needs some imagination.

If it wasn't for that first Atari , I wouldn't have got into Atari machines at all. Oddly the 2600 seems to be much more popular than I thought. I'm going to look into the composite mods for it and see if I can come up with a kit. I know there are countless variations already, but I like to create my own stuff :)
