It'd be nice if Atari would allow you to restore the original look of the awards, back to using the Fuji logo... :ponder:

IT'S TABLETOP DAY ON ZPH! WE PLAY THROUGH
TWENTY-TWO CLASSIC AND NEW TABLETOP GAMES!
 

Tomorrow we're doing something VERY different on ZeroPage Homebrew, we're playing TABLETOP GAMES! These self contained gaming machines from the 80's were touted as bringing the arcade into your own home! Will they stack up to the arcade experience?

 

We'll be blazing through TWENTY-TWO classic and new tabletop games such as Ms. Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Frogger, Zaxxon, Donkey Kong Jr. Pac-Man, Caveman, Zackman, Alien Attack, Defender, Super Cobra, Asteroids, Centipede, Galaga, Joust, Q*Bert, Space Invaders and Tetris!

 

Did you or your friends own any of these in the 80s or now? What are your favourites? Tune in live on Twitch for this very special stream!

Why did you cover "Atari" but not "newest"? 🤔

 

BTW, did Atari release/licenced any tabletop?

 

Very true, I assumed none of them would be from Atari! Looking through the list of properties, there have been a few Atari arcade games converted to tabletop, even one we'll be playing: Asteroids!

@ZeroPage Homebrew Why do you not use rechargeable batteries for the table tops? 

 

BTW: There is also a version of Super Cobra with more colors:

 

BTW: This one still runs on C-cells (I have a similar (old) one too):

I didn't see the show - but I've found that rechargeable batteries are often slightly larger than their non-rechargeable counterparts, and won't always fit.

 

I have tried to use the below pictured AA to C adapters but they didn't quite fit in. So like Nathan Strum said, there seems to be a size difference between rechargable and non that makes them just a touch too big for the tabletop games.

An IEC standard specifies the size of the individual battery types. And all manufacturers worldwide adhere to it. And I doubt the spacers are bound to the standard.

 

If there is a problem, then because the slots are too small. :) Maybe because the devices are old and were produced before the standard.

Looks like AA is 0.5 mm taller than C

 

That makes sense now why they don't fit in the tabletop games. The adapters from AA -> C don't add any length, they just replicate the width so they don't shift around. That's too bad there's such a small difference in height. I've noticed the adapters work with devices that have a little more room in the battery compartment so they may work in some tabletops, just not the ones I've tried. Thanks for the info Darrell!

Great episode. I had Defender and Donkey Kong BITD. I don't have any today, but I do have Asteroids and Missile Command (my two favorite coin-ops) from New Wave Toys. I turn them on keep the lights off in my Atari room, while I test/play games. Hearing them running in the background, helps create that game-room vibe.

I have most of the Tiny Arcade series from Super Impulse. It looks like they're no longer selling most of the titles now... :( 

almost-full-shelf.jpg

When they're all switched on and running in demo mode it's quite the arcade-like cacophony! :D  Unfortunately, they only stay on about a minute or so to preserve batteries.

 

Super Impulse also makes a Tiny Atari 2600 (which I also have), so they've licensed some Atari games too. Sadly, they haven't made any Tiny Atari arcade cabinets. I'd love to see a series of those.

 

All of my Tiny Arcade games are in storage now. I suppose I should unpack them and dig the batteries out of them before they all corrode. :o  (I may have done that before packing them... hope so.)

 

For portables, I have my original Entex Space "Invader" (apparently, they could only afford one), Sears (Coleco) Electronic Touchdown, and a Mattel Auto Race that I bought a few (okay... 13 :roll: ) years ago on eBay, that I blogged about here. Never did write "part 2".

 

LEDs seemed like magic back then. :)
