Nice setup of evidence! ... Interesting controller! Did the game come with a stencil or foil to attach to a standard controller?

Thanks Rob. Nearly all Intellivision games come with overlays. They slide into the controller from the top into a slot and line up with the 12 buttons on the control pad.

Some are really just decorative with maybe just a couple of functions but others are essential for game play and have every button labelled for seperate functions.

Thanks, I realise I know next to nothing about the Intellivision console! Went completely past me at the time...

@RetroRob: It went unnoticed by quite a lot of people in the UK too Rob. Atari was by far the more popular console here.

Yeah, same here in Germany! I remember there was one guy who had a Philips Videopac G7000 as an exception. Back then a couple of friends, my brother and I played on Atari 2600 consoles. We've been taking turns to visit to have a crowd competing for highscores. As handhelds some people had Game & Watch LCD consoles, I had a Gama Tronic. I love to think back! It was a great time!

Yeah, I didn't mind my friends not having an Inty. I suppose it made it more special that I had one laugh. They were expensive and I had generous parents .

When I got my C64 , then I got a lot from playing with friends, swapping games and sharing high scores . Maybe one day I'll get another C64 .

Games for the Atari Jaguar use overlays too. I try to memorize which buttons do what because it's destracting having to look down at the controller all the time. The Jaguar controller has more buttons that any other system that I own.

I use to have an Intellivision but no longer do because it died and I could find no one that could fix it. Somehow the CPU had been fried. Anyhow, "Demon Attack" is one of the many games that I owned CIB. I sold all of them except the ultra-rare "Stadium Mud Buggies." A fellow collector on YouTube had a complete set of CIB games for the Intellivision EXCEPT that one. He hadn't even been able to find a loose copy, so I gave him my CIB "Stadium Mud Buggies" for free.

I really want to find another Intellivision and a Colecovision as well.

@Mark: Yeah, overlays can be very useful and after I've played a game enough, I rarely need to look at the controller and they serve as a reminder. The intellivision has 16 independent buttons and a 16 directional disk which allows for a lot of in game options especially for the time. You told me about your woes with your intellivision console and the fried CPU. I too have suffers this after a 4 - 5 hours nonstop game of Astrosmash. Luckily mine was under warranty so not only had the cpu changed, I had all the Caps changed and custom heat sinks put on the chips. I saw your intellivision game collection YouTube vid as it was and am surprised you gave SMB away for free. As you say, it is extremely rare and extremely sought-after. Second only and only slightly second only to Spiker. You are very generous sir. Happy hunting for the intellivision and Coleco Vision, they are a lot easier to find in the US than they are in the UK.

Thanks for watching my Intellivision game collection video on YouTube. I forgot that I did that. I don't know about my being generous, although my wife might agree with you, as she has seen me ship out a lot of freebies to fellow collectors on YouTube. I gave lukemorse1 in Japan a box full of Atari Jaguar and Atari 2600 games; I sent another gamer a complate (boxed) Atari VCS Heavy-Sixer with a lot of games for it. I found it at a local Flea Market (similuar to a boot sell in the U.K.). The games were all duplicates of what I already had.

I've done a lot of trades too. I sent a gamer in England 3 boxes of CIB Atari 2600 games and in exchange he sent me 3 boxes of CIC games for the Sega Master System (many were PAL exclusives). Oh, and I bought a Sega Master System on eBay and had it shipped to a young woman who wanted one. There was a funny exchange (IMing) where I was asking for her mailing address because I wouldn't tell her what I sending her. She was afraid that I was going to send her a LaserDisc player. A logical thought on her part as I have 5 working LD players (1 RCA and 4 Pioneer). laugh

For anyone wishing to see my Intellivision game collection as of the time that I recorded this YouTube video (such as Stadium Mud Buggies), then here it is:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UfiOjbEx_Mg

This video is 9 years old. I had bought attentional games for it but stopped doing so when my Intellivision died. I also had the IntelliVoice Module but no longer do.

@Mark: I think your wife is right, I think generous is the perfect word to describe you Mark. I've watched most of your YouTube videos, I like the laserdisc and the game adds particularly. I've subscribed so Looking forward to a new video :)

Thanks for that. I appreciate all of my subscribers. Also, I currently support two gaming channels on YouTube through Patreon., both of wish are British.

I've known Larry Bundy for an insane number of years. He's steared my to a number of Home Brew projects, plus we have two things in common. We both lost a large number of games due to flooding caurse by storms (a hurricane in my case). I've taken some precautions to prevent a repeat occurance. First I installed high-grade shelving units in are garage. Then came another mishap. Our Hot Wat Heater tank burst. Again we had flooding, but no games were damaged that time. We installed a new Hot Water Heater & tank, but as insurance we placed in into a large plastic container, the lips of which go up approx. 4 inches. 

Fortunately both of my 16mm Sound Film Projectors and all of the 16mm Cartoon TV prints that I had at the time, which was over 400. I eventually gave some 200 of the prints to a co-worker that I had at the time. They were mostly for his daughter (who loved Tom & Jerry). That's what I gave him. Approx. 200 Tom & Jerry TV prints. The one time that I regretted doing something like that was at the first TV station that I worked at ('79-'82). I had another film buff at the station first TV station that I worked for (he introduced me to collecting 16mm to begin with) asked for my collection of 16mm Hanna-Barbara cartoon TV prints. All of them from the early to mid 60s. Some of them are hard to come by now. Oh well, at least they have a good home. He still works in TV by the way. I retired due to health reasons in 2004. I stayed in TV from '79 to '04 (25 years).

He's back though.

Fortunately both of my 16mm Sound Film Projectors and all of the 16mm Cartoon TV prints that I had at the time, which was over 400, survived unharmed. I eventually gave some 200 of the prints to a co-worker that I had at the time. They were mostly for his daughter (who loved Tom & Jerry). That's what I gave him. Approx. 200 Tom & Jerry TV prints. The one time that I regretted doing so(sort of) was one that I made at the first TV station that I worked at ('79-'82).

I retired due to health reasons in 2004. I stayed in TV from '79 to '04 (25 years). The final few years the station that I worked for from '87 to '04) became a duapolly, owning and operating two stations from the same building (the NBC afiliate and the ABC affiliate (but with only one new hire to run Master Congtrol, which is what I did most of the time).  For awhile we all worked 4 12 hour days (instead of the prior 4 10 hour shifts, but then they increased that to 5 12 hour days. Try running two stations at the same time thru two different consoles, while monitoring both transmitters and maintaing 2 Program Logs, 2 Quality Control Reports, 2 Transmitter Logs (a new reading every 30 minutes, althought the FCC only requires one every 2 hours and 59 minutes (MAX). AND report any tower light outages (1 minitored visually; 1 by computer) for TWO towers to the FAA (I actually had to do that once). I also had to call 9-1-1 twice in the same night. (for the victim of a rape, and for a stabbing of the perp). 

At least I didn't stay at the 2nd TV station that I worked for. When I left in '87 they were the FOX affilliate (and still are) but had been an Indie when I first started. But they quickly aquired the other Indie, which became a UPN affiliated station, and eventually the MY TV affiliation (FOX owns that network too) in Prime Time, and the Me TV affiliation during the day (a retro show service). So technically a triopoly.

So let's see, Jacksonville Florida has two Indie stations, is served by two PBS affiiliates), a CW affilaited station, plus NBC, ABC, FOX, and MY TV affiliated stations. That's, let's see, 9 stations, not counting Me TV or the Digitial only channel owned by the NBC/ABC station. It only runs weather anyway. The CW affiliate had been the WB affiliate, which before than had been the ABC station, which prior to that had been the NBC affiliate, which prior to that had been the ABC affiliate,

So eventhough I only worked at 3 stations, I've had to work even more NETs than that. First I ran ABC, then NBC, then an Indie, then it became the FBN affiliate on day 1 of the NET. The first show to air on FBN (then later rebranded FOX) was "Married with Children." I ran that station on that night, while everyone else held a party in the studio. Then ABC, NBC, and then both NBC and ABC at the same time.

I've tried to make a video on all this several, including all of the affiliation swaps (that I haven't covered here). EVERYstation here has changed network affiliations at least once, some three times, exept the FOX and MY TV affilations, which haven't changed since affiliating with a NET.  It's all so confusing. laugh

No worries Mark, I enjoy watching your posts. Iv'e watched a few of the Top at Gaming Videos but haven't seen Larry's channel so I'll check it out. 

That's some bad luck with the damage to your collections. Iv'e seen you mention water damage in your videos. 

With regards to regret, I had a pretty much complete collection of Intellivision games and peripherals when I was young . My father had bought most of the games available pre-INTV days and also had bought the ECS component that allowed you to connect the keyboard for the computer and also the keyboard (the piano kind) for the Melody Blaster games. I also had the Intellivoice module for speech synthesised games.  Anyway, not realising the potential worth both in the monetary sense and to and more importantly, my personal nostalgia, I sold the lot at a car boot sale (flea market) in the early 90's for what was probably about £40 crying

Such is life I suppose and it's fun, if also expensive, to be collecting from scratch. Bring back so many memories  Great chatting with you Mark and don't worry about the typos, it's frustrating we don't have an ediit functiooon heree ?wink
