So I was researching my post for this morning (that is, I searched the Internet for Private Eye Video Game or something), and I re-discovered the Atari 2600 video game Private Eye.
I remember that game, too, although I am not sure who had it. Jimmy? Jimmy T.? Someone else?
I don’t actually have a copy of it and certainly have not seen it in the wild in the 20 some years that I’ve been acquiring things like it (although a lot less over the last decade–you don’t find stuff like this at garage sales any more, and you don’t even see things like it at antique malls, where common Atari cartridges are marked $7 or $10).
I’ll keep my eyes open for it, but I’m not sanguine at my prospect of finding either of these games out.
Maybe I should start going to estate sales again. Especially since I’m getting to the age where peers are dying, and they might be my best chance at getting a hold of things like these.
And, brothers and sisters, watch out for my estate sale someday. It will be quite the trove of miscellany.
