I had Pong!  Bloody good at it I was, too!  :laugh:  I also treasured my digital watch with the red LED display.  :)

 i had pong as well, got bored with it after a few weeks and sold it on. I think it cost 20 for the unit. Also had a timex red led watch, battery lasted 3 months and cost 5 to replace (which was a lot in 1976 !)

Bite the bullet and throw it out Dave, I threw mine decades ago.   ;D  I doubt if they will ever appear on an Antiques Roadshow of the future.

Unfortunately i'm a bit of a hoarder especially for tech from yesteryear but i may get the last laugh when it's valued at a couple of grand (in about 200 years time  :crazy:).
