Board Repair page
Omega Race (Bally/Midway, 1981)
a Bally company, created this black-and-white vector game. Like Space
the player's ship rotates freely in all directions and continues to
until it hits something or thrust is applied in another direction.
Space Duel, your goal is to destroy the space ships opposing you. Many
copies of this game were produced, including cockpit versions, but few
survive today due to the placement of a Ni-Cad rechargeable battery at
the top of the main board. The battery usually leaked after a few
corroding the board and making it non-functional. If your Omega Race
has the original battery, REMOVE IT NOW!

Repair page for more info on what battery damage can do to classic
is my most recent acquisition, and another Ebay purchase. I picked it
in February using my friend's pickup truck this time, and brought it
to my apartment with no incident. The TRANSPORT may have been without
but getting the furniture dolley to move the game was an ordeal. It
that starting in 2000, U-Haul requires renters to present their
when renting anything from a gigantic truck to a lowly blanket. It
matter whether you've rented incident-free from them in the past, they
still require it. I don't have a problem with them requiring several
of ID, credit cards, etc., but in my opinion no one outside of the U.S.
Government (who DO have my prints, for my security clearance) needs to
have my biometric information. I won't go into it any more than to say
I have no criminal record and have nothing to hide from anyone, I
wish to cling to what shreds of privacy we Americans possess. A copy of
the letter I sent to U-Haul proclaiming my boycott of their services
be found here.
