This is EPIC.. I just love it. The build is so clean. Man, I need to really slow down on builds and focus on aesthetics like this.

So professional Dave. I remember playing those big Asteroid  arcade consuls in the 1980's  :D Wow, how things have changed since then.

I spent a lot of lawn mowing money on that game as a kid.  Really brings back memories.  Great looking build.  Too bad about the printing  :(

Bonus points if you label the input jack "INSERT QUARTER" next time.

(The output jack can be "Coin Return"! Okay, I'm done.)

Thanks for the compliments, guys.

I too remember Asteroids from growing up in the 80's. I re-discovered it later in college when we realized that it was a hidden mode on our Agilent oscilloscopes in the lab.  Good times.

Tell me more about that "mode" in Agilent's oscilloscopes, I have access to a few at university...

I believe it's called ROCKS and it is available on the 54622D scopes.  There are YouTube videos that show how to get it going.

I believe some other models have Tetris.  I  sure you can find the info online.

Hmmm, Tetris.

I was thinking the same thing.

It does of course not disappoint Dave.  Great work as usual.

Awesome build -- shame about the screen printing. :( Make sure you give PPP feedback. Maybe a clear coat and bake will be an option after the printing.
