In this special Christmas episode we have no group discussion, no Feedback, no News, and no game reviews. So why should you listen? Because there are two great interviews; one with former Marketing Director for hardware at Mattel Electronics, Gary Moskovitz. Another with current Art Director of Intellivision Entertainment, Mike Dietz. George gives us his Top 10 of the original 125 Intellivision games, and we sprinkle in some Christmas cheer, along with a special holiday message from Intellivision Entertainment CEO Tommy Tallarico. Grab some eggnog and enjoy... oh, and also listen to the show. 0:00:00 - Episode rundown (with special guest Yadranka) 0:01:23 - "Intellivisionaries Theme" (Christmas Remix) by Paul Nurminen 0:03:02 - Welcome 0:09:06 - Gabriel Baum promo 0:09:52 - Marketing Interview: Gary Moskovitz 1:05:30 - George's Top 10 of the original 125 Intellivision games 1:10:15 - Steve C promo 1:10:23 - RGR promo 1:10:40 - Get To Know Amico: Mike Dietz interview 2:12:12 - Steve Roney promo 2:12:33 - A Holiday Message from Intellivision CEO Tommy Tallarico 2:13:55 - Bill Fisher promo 2:14:06 - 1982 Intellivision Christmas / ECS TV commercial 2:14:35 - Wrap Up* / "Treasured" by Paul 'Nurmix' Nurminen 2:17:12 - Outtakes with Mike Dietz *"Carol Of The Bells" from the Intellivision game 'Christmas Carol' Show Notes: http://intellivisionaries.com/
