EPOCH'S ASTRO COMMAND WITH INSTRUCTIONS/VINTAGE 1982

I think it is pretty cool, my first classic electronic game. What do you guys think?

That is damn cool. It looks so familiar. I could swear I've played it, yet I'm not 100% certain. Really, it's your first? Did you have any back in the day as a kid? My first video games were handhelds, as my parents didn't wanna spend the big bucks on a 6 year old lol.
One burning question that will remain with him until his dying days....."Was my victory really worth the price I had to pay?"

Oh sure many, especially those Coleco Tabletops and many handhelds, I meant that it is my first as a Collector! Since I started collecting videogames/consoles/computers and making Youtube videos etc, I have not had anything like this for many years so I thought this would be a good start. Apparently there are Tandy/Radioshack versions but this is the more rare I think.
