Got this a number of weeks back from the Intellivision guys regarding my Sea Battle for the 2600 order.

First, let us say thank you for placing an order for the Atari and/or
Coleco cartridge(s).  We wanted to update you on the status of the carts
because we know you are anxiously waiting for them to arrive in your
mail box!  You may or may not already know, but each cartridge is hand
made which means our production capacity is limited.  We expected to be
able to ship your order within 3 weeks or so of you placing the order.
Due to problem with the company manufacturing the circuit boards, the
carts have taken longer than we anticipated.

Just wondered if they'd contacted Randy... and if not who'd they gotten as an alternative source (and why don't they bug Randy now? ;^D) I got on the waiting list before it was "available to the public" (though I imagine most interested parties were already on their mailing list), so there must be a number of less than happy schmoes like me.

Please please don't be another Core! (I [hopefully] say that more for humor value than b/c I think that's going on here.)

I wouldn't worry about it this time, Will. I've seen all three of the cartridges, including the Sea Battle, in the hands of a guy who had bought them at CGE this year...saw them just two weeks unlike The Core, an actual product is already out there. And the Intellivision Blue Sky Rangers are a credible source of games...they've been selling for years now. We'll all get our games eventually...just seems to be taking FOREVER.

And I hold everything up to the light of The Core too, given that I lost a hundred bucks on that deal too. *SIGH*
