Not exactly my story, but this is a recording of Ed Averett from this past weekend at CGE 2K14. Very glad someone recorded this! Smiley

Love the comment at 45:40, about not being able to do Tetris on the O2.  Evil

Thanks for the link!
It's really inspiring hear Ed talk about good old days.

So "Take your Money and Run" was the first O2 game ever Smiley

The first ten Ody games was made by Sam Overton, but they´re commom games in other consoles mainly sport games. If Im not wrong Maganvox/Philips was going to stop because Sam had no idea for new games, so Ed proposed to make games. Take The Money... was the first Ed game (and not by coincidence it´s a bugs lair).

At Eurocon this year Dieter (CCC) and I gave Take The Money And Run a go.
We couldnt really figure it out, no manual (Multicart) and decided that the only fun part of this game is its name Smiley. Thank god Ed made much better games later on.

On another note: Dieter, Mr Atari and me had a ball playing the two player games on the Videopac and we both noted that we didn't have so much fun with Videopac for a long time!
So roll up some friends and force them to play you'll like it.

Btw if you ever play with Dieter, get him to play Gunslinger! He sucks at it lol!  Tongue  Evil

I never had Gunslinger back then I think. Just borrowed it from a friend sometimes afair. So yes, I suck at it LOL, but I will practice it until next Eurocon!  Evil

Maybe Take The Money And Run is fun when you read the manual first? Grin

I think I never played the two player games (except for Stone Sling) for such a long time as Janzl and I (and Mr. Atari and even Mat Allen) did at Eurocon. Tragically Mr. Atari beat us on some of the games, like Space Rendezvous Embarrassed

Mat almost missed his plane because he couldn't stop playing PPP Grin

Janzl and Mr. Atari played a complete nine hole game of Golf! (Mr. Atari won by a mile).

And we even played a four player game of Bowling (Janzl, Mr. and Mrs. Atari and myself).

Oh and Table Football. And Battlefield (which is actually not a bad game except that I suck at that as well).

I think we played almost half of the Videopac library at Eurocon. Yeah it was fun!  Cool

It sure was fun!

It's a pity that I hardly play Videopac anymore and when I play I mostly play the one player games.
I keep on saying, get your friends to play the two player games you'll have a lot of fun.
(Some beer helps Wink )

Next year I hope they have a Videopac standing there Dieter!

Oh yeah, we also gave Robot City a decent go. Som non-VPac players tried it and liked it.


And yes, I totally suck at Golf...

Well, there is one essential strategic choice you should make when you start a Gunfighter tournament. Who knows what that is?

Yeah, and I bet I am the only one who didn't know this ...

Probably even in the 80s my friends knew that and beat the hell out of me at Gunfighter, and then laughed behind my back ... Tongue

Dieter relived the trauma's from his youth this Eurocon lol!

Yes Marc, thats right. You can shoot your opponent in the feet as he always has to go lower first before he can shoot you. I wonder how well they play-tested their games back then.
