INTELLIPACK 3 & INTELLIVISION ROCKS
We want to thank everyone who has downloaded INTELLIPACK 3 and given us feedback via the User Report form. We are working on problems some of you have reported and plan to post an updated version of INTELLIPACK 3 soon. Since our new CD-ROM collection INTELLIVISION ROCKS uses the same software, we are holding its release until all the bugs are out of INTELLIPACK 3. We want to get it right - so thank you for your patience.

A NEW COLLECTORS T-SHIRT
Intellivision was famous for its Adventure Games: the Mattel Electronics DUNGEONS & DRAGONS cartridges, INTV’s TOWER OF DOOM, Imagic’s SWORDS & SERPENTS. The fourth in our Collectors Series of t-shirts pays tribute to these games – and it’s a beaut! Check it out in our Retrotopia Store: it features full-color art from the first Mattel Electronics D&D package with the title: "INTELLIVISION ADVENTURE GAMES." (We can’t put the D&D name on it since Hasbro owns that trademark now.) Hurry – this is a limited edition! Our ASTROSMASH and B-17 BOMBER shirts have sold out, and SEA BATTLE (see below) is almost gone!

By the way, you can play the original Mattel adventure game and INTV’s TOWER OF DOOM on the INTELLIVISION LIVES! CD-ROM collection. The second Mattel adventure game is available for FREE DOWNLOADING as part of INTELLIPACK 3. And Imagic’s SWORDS & SERPENTS will be on the forthcoming INTELLIVISION ROCKS collection.

But we've set aside a LIMITED NUMBER of both styles in various sizes just for those of you on our mailing list. These are available by PHONE ORDER ONLY. This is your last chance for these shirts, so call now before we run out!

While we ship all of our USA orders via 3-day Priority Mail, the Postal Service has warned there may be delays this holiday season. For delivery by Christmas, we recommend placing online orders by December 15. After that date, you may want to consider shipping by Federal Express, available at additional expense on PHONE ORDERS ONLY.

ANOTHER INTELLIVISION TRIVIA CONTEST!
The winner of the trivia contest in our November 10th mailing was Jeff Seyer. Jeff was selected at random from the 33 people who correctly answered that the cartridge dubbed "Stupidest Intellivision Game of 1983" by one reviewer was KOOL-AID MAN. Jeff won a SEA BATTLE t-shirt. Congratulations!

Now here's YOUR chance to win with a new question: Mattel Electronics assigned code names to hardware in development. Which products (some never released) were code-named BIG MAC, COFFEE, LUCKY, CHESS and DANDELION? (Once again, the answers can be found in the pages of the intellivisionlives.com web site.)

Go to the official entry page and submit your answer:
http://www.intellivisionlives.com/contest_closed.shtml

We'll pick a random winner from all complete, correct entries received before NOON PST, WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 13. The winner will receive a Gravis GamePad Pro controller, either for PC (Game Port required) or for Mac (USB port required), courtesy Gravis.

GOOD LUCK and MERRY CHRISTMAS!
