It took me over two years of searching eBay and other sites but I finally found a working 1976 pong clone called “Name Of The Game”. I wanted this game for a very long time because I had this pong clone when I was 9 years old and my sister and I enjoyed it quite a lot. Unfortunately when I was 14 I chopped it up for spare parts to build Commodore 64 peripherals like paddles and a light pen. In later years I felt sad for destroying a game my sister enjoyed so much and I wanted to make up for my mistake by finding, restoring and gifting one to her for Christmas. Below is the video of the product review which ends on Christmas when my sister receives her most unexpected gift. Coming soon will be part 2 showing the complete tear down and restoration with lots of photos and some video voodoo.

“Name Of The Game I”
Model number: A-100

The below photos show how good the fully restored pong clone looks on my 63 inch TV.



Just for added information on the games from Allied Leisure here is a photo of my
“Name Of The Game II”
Model number: A-300


These pong clones were made by:
Allied Leisure Industries Inc.
245 W. 74th Place
Hialeah, FL

We played the game for 3 days straight over Christmas. Everyone enjoyed playing quite a lot. Strange to think how it can still be such a great multi-player game after 38 years.

BONUS VIDEO: Here is a short clip of another A-100 in the wild. It was purchased by a YouTube viewer named “wattersm” for $4 at a Goodwill store. WOW! He had to do some repairs.
