TV Challenger Series 3000 (TVC-3000)

Early pong system marketed in Europe, maybe more specifically in West Germany, featuring the 4 classic pong games : tennis, hockey, squash and solo.

Some marketing extracts : "The TV Challenger 3000 series with regular and professional playing features built into each game" - "TRIPLE SOUND : Your TV Challenger sounds off on ball contact with walls, bats and after a scoring point" - "Easy to connect and operate" - "Four games with triple sound and scoring right on your tv screen"

Predseda from Prague, who sent us these pictures and info, comments:

This device has a very interesting history for me, because it was owned by the current director of the world famous "Spejbl & Hurvinek marionette theatre", who bought it personally in the late 70´s in Wolfsburg in once Western Germany. She kept it in perfect condition, including box and manual and about week ago she gave it to me together with a Commodore 64 C - although we have never met before!
