In this episode Rick and Chris talk through recent news in the Intellivision community while working out how to do this show without Paul's constant snarkiness.  There's a Homebrew Highlight segment covering IntellivisionRevolution's Missile Domination releases and a bonus segment including the recording of news that was originally intended for episode 46.  Doesn't sound like nearly 3 hours of content, does it?

In this episode, we have two recaps from two gaming expos: CORGS (Columbus Ohio Retro Gaming Society) in May 2022, and PRGE (Portland Retro Gaming Expo) in October 2022.  Paul and Rick attended CORGS, Chris and Rick attended PRGE.  Paul was supposed to go to PRGE, but his wife broke her arm and elbow, so plans had to be changed.  You won't find our usual show segments in this one, and still no game review for Atlantis (perhaps the ...

In this special year-end episode we've put together a collection of outtakes and bloopers from our catalog of shows.  Some are old favorites, some are new, but hopefully they'll all bring a smile to your face and give you a good laugh as we close out 2021.  And this episode also allows Paul to proclaim that he did in fact release more episodes in 2021 than in 2020, so there!  Happy New Year from all of us at The Intellivisionaries ...

In this special Christmas episode we have no group discussion, no Feedback, no News, and no game reviews.  So why should you listen?  Because there are two great interviews; one with former Marketing Director for hardware at Mattel Electronics, Gary Moskovitz.  Another with current Art Director of Intellivision
Entertainment, Mike Dietz.  George gives us his Top 10 of the original 125 Intellivision games, and we sprinkle in some Ch...
