    Default Bought a Vectrex

    Hello. Short post and no photos at the moment but I'm happy to have bought a Vectrex.

    Bought it with a spare controller (boxed) plus the minestorm screen overlay and another seven games all boxed with overlays. Brill.

    Lovely display. I cleaned the Vectrex with windolene and it had been in a smoky home for a long time. Opened up the back and it was great to feel the torquey snap as the case screws gave way - told me that I was the first one to open it - ever.
    No sympathy for the devil; keep that in mind. Buy the ticket, take the ride...

    Here's a photo from the advert. I've been looking for a while and a couple of years ago went to collect one from Leeds but turned it down when I tried it out.

    Cool as fuck.

    Did the overlays come with the games that needed them?

    Blast from the mofo past. It was the stuff of dreams in the day. Kids today have no idea....
