I just dusted off my 2600 and started playing Yars' Revenge again for the first time in about a year; and I'd forgotten how wonderful and addictive the 2600's games can be. Anyone else play/collect for the 2600?

I just picked up a 2600 up, but I don't have the video hook ups. Though it'll be at home on my small 15 incher in my office, for a gas, I want to see how it'll look on my HDTV. :)

If you can get your hands on an Atari Flashback 2, the designer's posted instructions on the Intertubes to add a cart slot. Pretty much by design, too, as the circuit board has all the solder points helpfully labeled. I plan on doing this to mine, too... here's the site (
