Gauntlet...? Ed LOGG?
If so I will seriously consider bringing my personal "Gauntlet II" PCB with self-made JAMMA adapter!!
Well, not too EZ due to its size and age... (and other circumstances...)...

Those wanting somewhere to stay that's a bit more luxurious (but still a good price) than the hostels mentioned earlier should check out the Marina Club hotel, which isn't too far from the partyplace. A few of us so far are booked in here and hopefully there should still be rooms available.

See you there !

And now look at these beautiful pearls! Everyone who submits an entry in the Atari Jaguar Game or Demo category at Silly Venture 2k19, will be in the running for one of two LED lit swanky carts which come with the "Superfly DX" game! And as well as the carts, the sponsor of these prizes also gave us two mouse adapters for this console (because there are some new Jaguar games coming up, ported from the ST, and they require them). Matt, thank you so much once again, on behalf of all SV visitors!

This is a small teaser of prizes slowly landing from RETRONICS! Two beautiful copies of the new THE RESCUE EXPEDITION game for ATARI XL/XE! In less than two weeks they won't encrust my Atari anymore and will hit unknown hands during Sunday's prize giving :) Oh well, I can only wish... GOOD LUCK! :)

BTW, Duddie from RETRONICS will be present at the whole event. You will get the oppurtunity to see their offering, and also other games, anti-dust covers, books etc. :)
