We also got a number of Atari 5200 and Atari Lynx games in the donation, several with really interesting covers.

A couple of weeks ago, the fine folks at the Computer Aided Engineering Network (CAEN) gave us a Battlezone mini-cabinet for the archive. As you can see, it fit in just perfectly near the back door!
