Now, we're really pushing it. If you're looking at this page, you're much
more than a casual collector, and most likely suffer from the same debilitating
disease as the author of this site. Or, you're fascinated that there is actually
a small group of people on this planet who actually care about this
So, whether your interested, amused, or appalled, here's a page that acts as
a catch-all for Intellivision-related stuff that defies any reasonable
categorization (such as hardware or software). Some of these sundries may even
have (or had) some practical use, such as the storage- and controller-related
items. Others are just silly.
Since I am stricken with this odd Intellivision affliction, it's actually
interesting to me if you have, see, or know of any Intellivision-related
items that are not mentioned here. Or, if you have information about a particular item, please
let me know!
These are the things unearthed so far - though more surely exist:
||Intellivision patches - mostly from Activision.
||Nifty little promotional stickers.
||Seemingly restricted more to the northern
part of the country, and Canada, Dr. Pepper had at least two tie-ins
to Intellivision back in the day.
||There's been a recent flood of press
release kits for Intellivision games on eBay. OK, not really
a flood so much as a trickling of individual copies. But damn are
they expensive! Well at least most of the winners have been
gracious enough to donate scans of them. Excellent stuff!
||Music, album art, and general Intellivision
fandom have shown up in the 'real' music world, too!
||Ah, yes, the most common gripe about the Intellivision
system - the controllers! Frankly, I never understood what all the fuss
was about. In any case, lots of companies decided to capitalize on this
popular opinion, and offered what they believed to be better alternatives
to that smooth, shiny old disc.
||A surprising number of different storage options
were made to help you keep your system and games organized. These ranged from
folders with special pockets for carts, manuals, and overlays to more elegant
and sophisticated furniture-like contrivances.
||Ahh - the trenches in which the war between
the Atari 2600 and Intellivision was primarily fought.
||As this one has groused about on many
occasions, my old issues of the Intellivision Game Club News,
Numb Thumb News and Activisions have been lost
in the great dumpster of time. So this section is at the mercy of you,
o humble contributors! (Unless, of course, anyone out there wants to
part with something! ;)

free from household grime!
