80’s Gaming Revival – Colecovision

Scarlet my wonderful wife had a much more interesting gaming history to me, being a proud owner of a Colecovision back in the day.  Well proceeding my MSX ownership, and lets not get into the Amiga ownership….  On a recent visit back to the parents in Wales, we retrieved this long forgotten gem and having sourced a suitable CRT TV (thanks Andy) it has taken its place in the gaming basement.  Hopefully to be joined by a few more retro consoles and computers in the future.

We even have the Atari addon and an original ill fated E.T game.
