Glad you liked them.  I took some 166 pictures so I'll have to create the album once I get home.

I'm back from PRGE!  This was a superb event again, and even better than last year.  Lots of gaming celebrities to meet and the museum was even larger with a focus on the Atari 2600 given the 40th Anniversary of the console.  Some of the engineers who worked at Atari (on the 2600 as well as various home computers and other consoles) were present and had some interesting panels.  As if that weren't enough, there were quite a few new homebrew tittles released at the event as well for the 2600, 5200, Jaguar, NES, Genesis, and Intellivision.  Never mind all the demos for even more new stuff being worked on.  Here is a link to my online album:  PRGE 2017

Thanks!  It is definitely worth it.  There were some folks from the Intellivision forums there who traveled from Italy!
