I was just over at the ATARIAGE website when I saw this post and just wanted to share it! I think this a great Idea if you love video game based board games (like I do) or just anything retro (like I do.)
AtariAge user apemaster from Yoda’s Video Arcade has announced a new game called Retrory. Retrory is a memory card matching game, where you find pairs of matching cards by turning them over. This is a physical game, as opposed to a video game, featuring 80 cards (40 “pairs”) and a 12-page full-color instruction booklet, packed in a 2600-style box. The cards themselves are 6cm x 6cm (2.4″) square and are about 2mm thick. Each card is double-sided and full-color printed, with a canvas-structure finish.
The card pairs in this game are not identical images, but instead two different images from the same game. The goal of the game is to find matching pairs, but in order to find them you have to know the games. You can increase the game’s difficulty by having to name the game when finding a match. The game features images from officially released 2600 games, and the instruction booklet shows all the pairs and their corresponding game names. The price per game is $40 Euros (around $45 USD), including worldwide airmail shipping. To learn how to order your copy of Retrory, please visit the Atari 2600 Forum over at ATARIAGE. Al and everyone over there are great, and the site is quite a read if you are into everything ATARI!
