Hi. New here

I'm looking to finish off the collection, needing the games below
2. Grand Prix
10. Code Breaker
20. Head On
21. Draughts
28. ??
32. Backgammon
34. Sea Wolf
And of course 16. Hobby module

I dont mind if they are Radofin or Acetronic games, but complete if possible. Happy to swap/pay for them but being a console collector on a vintage computer forum I maybe of no help with trades though I do have a few Foutain games.

Ron, did you end up getting it in NZ or abroad. Just out of interest

One day I saw a fountain console with boxed game collection on TM, in the photo I could (only just) make out the corner of a hobby module box sticking out,
so I grabbed it :D

I remember they sold the Hobby Module in New Zealand, it has a cassette tape port for loading and saving.

[Here's an interesting factoid:] the fountain console has no RAM chips :shock: only 43 bytes of RAM build into the video processor.

Thanks for the info. I was guessing that hobby module would set me back a bit if I find it at all. So generally a Fountain game would cost $10 complete what would you say a fair price would be for it (I do understand and been that person that would pay an arm and a leg for a game just because I wanted it but emotions aside)

The box is labelled Radofin

You can't run a Hobby Module on an Acetronic 1292 the PSU is inadequate, it requires a 1392 console.
