Our game for July is the Activision classic grid war- Beamrider. Play on defaults beginning Level 1, using real 5200 systems and Atari mfg controls. A -1 HSCpt penalty for use of period analog sticks, such as the Wico The only modern exceptions allowed, are flashcarts/SD loaders, running original Roms. Pics preferred, but not required, except for HSC wins and records.

Round ends when month does. (even for me) :P

The grid is a harsh mistress, and I shoot my bonus ships as often as I receive them.


I never played this game back in the day, but if I could go back in time to 1983 I would make sure to bring a copy, saying to my younger self "hey little buddy, why not give Joust a break and ride the Beam for a bit?" Good game!

Not a lot of play this month, but also the peak of summer, when most are busy. School starts this week here.  DamonicFury is this month's Gridmaster, but some good runs were put in as well. Thanks to all who played, and join us in the next game.
