Hi,

Back in 1981 or so I managed to get my first console, the Philips G7000.

Bought it used so I got a bunch of games with it, and at a local Tv-dealer you could rent games so I played a few more.

The last game I bought was Freedom Fighters and I still can not figure out why I never got Munchkin.

Any way, I still have the console with all the games, but the power supply doesn't work and the joysticks are somewhat malfunctioning.

A couple of years ago Munchkin got mentioned in a retro group on Facebook and I decided to do a port to the C64. Time issues and that thing called life have been in the way but I am still working on it and progress have been good lately.

And I finally bought the Munchkin castingen, hope to get it the coming week (french only version though).

So maybe now is the time to see if I can get the G7000 up and running again.

And who knows, getting into coding the G7000 seems a bit tempting as well...
