Electronic Games

This is a photograph of the inside of Coleco's Electronic Quarterback, illustrating the electronic components which make a hand held electronic game functional. According to H.J. Blumenthal in his book The Complete Guide To Electronic Games (Scarborough, Ontario: New American Library, 1981, pp.4-5), over 300 million electronic games were sold between 1976 and 1980. He views electronic games as an outgrowth of public interest in electronic calculators, digital watches, pocket language translators, videotext, digital sound, and personal computers.
