Episode 27: Rick Rolled Retro

In this episode we have a special guest host – Cmart (Christian Martin)! We don’t do a game review, but we do review the latest edition of Todd Holcomb’s Ultimate Intellivision Flashback, as well as the Coleco reproduction box set by Marc Oberhäuser. We have our usual Feedback, News and George. And for some reason, Rick is tooling about town on a Penny-Farthing bicycle?
