International Play Your Vectrex Day!
« Reply #31 on: November 01, 2012, 22:05:52 PM »
Can someone provide information on the game Star Trek, or a link to the instructions?

I've figured it out mostly, but ere is one button that I still don't know what it's for.  It's #3, which seems to be some sort of auto-targeting, but I can't seem to hit on how it works.

Also, what are the different game varieties?  They all seem the same to me!

I didn't take pics, but my kids played a few games... the only ones they liked were Clean Sweep and Spike.

I played one game of Star Castle and scored 7360. I need to practice.

Thanks TrekMD, invaluable help.

I got my answer: it's a shield!  Good to know, for I keep getting killed and seem never able to go farther than Sector #2. :)

I hope to see you next year on November 1st playing your Vectrex and pics included! :D

BTW, I also like Clean Sweep.
Don't be surprised, my broken English is legendary!

Great pics Trek!!! I wanted to play the Vectrex but woke up on the 31st of October with no heat from the furnance. Spent the next couple of days and a few hundred dollars getting it fixed. Woke up today with 25 degree weather so it was worth it not to freeze. Sounds like some of you had a good day.

Thanks!  You should take a look at the Wiki Page for the "event."  There are several other pictures posted as well as scores.

Thanks for the heads up! I think Clean Sweep is my favorite but then I only have three carts so far. Minestorm really is very impressive for a pack in game.

Nice stack of carts!!!!  8)
