That console over there and many of those games occupied so many hours of my youth, it’s almost hard to believe. So it was fun to spot this ColecoVision among the items that will be up for bid during the charity auction at the Seattle Retro Gaming Expo.

Seattle Retro Gaming Expo is a first annual, two-day event started by members of the Northwest Classic Gaming Enthusiasts group, taking place in the University District this weekend.

Activities include free play and tournaments in addition to the charity auction, which features some epic consoles from collector Nolan O’Brien, proceeds benefitting Northwest Harvest.

Ticket info here for the event.

For more details see this video interview with the SRGE organizers by Metal Jesus (a.k.a Jason Lindsey) via his YouTube Channel. (The line that inspired the headline above comes during a classic moment toward the end of the video.)
