30 Years of C64 competition!

This month, 30 years ago, the Commodore 64 went on sale. To celebrate this landmark event in computing history, Commodore enthusiasts around the world are playing the old classics on their breadboxes, organizing special events at their club meetings and setting up special celebration facebook and Google+ pages.

Here at mos6502.com, I’ll be running a competition (just like I did last year for C64 week), but as it’s a bit more special this time (you’re only 30 once), the “questions” will be a bit harder but the prizes a lot bigger. How about a genuine Amiga 500 for instance? Or some Quickshot VII joysticks so you can play your favorite games on your C64? Pretty cool if I say so myself!


So, as of Monday, August 13th, I’ll be putting a couple of questions online every week till August 31st.

They will all be featured on a special page, as to keep everything nicely centralized (there will be a direct link to the page on the top menu of the site). There’s no need to send in your answers immediately, as the competition closes on Monday, September 3rd 22h00 CET. You need to send me your answers to all the questions before that time, either via mail to robby.boey@mos6502.com of via a DM on Twitter.

From all the correct entries, I’ll draw one lucky winner who will get the Amiga 500. Two other lucky participants will get a Quickshot joystick. For the latter, the draw will be amongst all participants, so even if you know only a couple of answers, you still have a chance to win this excellent prize!

So are you keeping up with the Commodore?  As the Commodore’s keeping up with you!
