I have this cart, but maddeningly, the Intellivision II hardware locks it out!

I have a Sears Super Video Arcade console, in addition to my Intellivision 2, for that reason. (Plus, the Sears console's design looks awesome.)

As I recall the story, Mattel wanted to avoid the situation that Atari faced with unlicesnced carts, so when they designed the INTV II, the added in a check that would confirm whether it was an official cart or not. This feature was dropped from the INTV III, because this check also unintentionally locked some some official 3rd party releases as well.
