November 01 | Play Your Vectrex !October 1, 2015
1. Play their Vectrex.
2. Keep track of what they played.
3. Edit the Vectrex wiki page for it (http://vectrex.wikia.com/wiki/International_Play_Your_Vectrex_Day) or contact me and I'll do it for them.
These two things are mandatory. There are also bonuses that can be added as well, such as keeping a record of your game(s’) score(s), taking photos of your score(s), your Vectrex/collection, making a drawing or gif or something that is Vectrex-related, etc. Full rules and regulations can be seen on the Wikia Vectrex wiki page or on the vector gaming forums, along with how to contact me if players wish for me to put up the information for them, rather than if they do not wish to edit the wiki page themselves.
We hope to see you on November 1st!

New Vectrex Game: P1X3L-pushrJanuary 7, 2014
Just received a mail by ALeX, promoting a very nice new game for our Vectrex:
We just released a new Vextrex Game:
We is P1X3L.net, namely Retrofan for graphics and I (ALeX) for code. There is no real module and no overlay, just a rom file and the source code..
It took some while but here is the new Vectrex game “P1X3L-pushr”, which is a remake of our own C64 game. The game was created for the Coding Compo at the DoReCo-Party 2013. Sorry that it took that long to make it public. This is our first Vectrex release and my first steps on the 6809, which seems a great processor. The archive includes not only the rom file but also the full source – have fun with it!
Since I don’t own an actual Vectrex it’s (almost) only be tested on an emulator. I’m open for suggestions but mostly for upcoming work since this game is done – but feel free to improve it yourself.

New Video of NAGOYA ATTACKJuly 8, 2013
Some more video of NAGOYA ATTACK, a new vectrex game by Chris Malcolm:
"A beta version of one of a few Vectrex games I'm working on at the moment. Feedback appreicated. It's a little rough around the edges at the mo and could do with optimisation and some balancing of the levels but it should be playable enough. Single life survival game inspired by Taitos Minivader tester board."
The Macintosh 1984 case design rumor has an end!June 18, 2013
Dear Vectrex Friends,
there was this rumor around that the Macintosh 1984 case design was inspired by the 1982 Vectrex case design concept. I contacted the Macintosh 1984 case designer Jerry C. Manock and asked him this simple question, (followed by is his answer):
Was the design of the Macintosh 1984 inspired by the Vectrex 1982 in any way ?
Absolutely and emphatically NO!
I have no knowledge of the 1982 Vectrex and have never seen one.
