Ms. Pac-Man Pictures

I was able to snap quite a few pictures last night of my newly acquired Ms. Pac-Man game. As my basement is under construction, lighting is not the best right now. I have new recessed lights installed but not hooked up. These are the best pictures I could get under the conditions.  I’ve only owned to game for a few days now, but I can confidentially say that it will go to the top of the playlist in my collection.  Now, on to the pictures and more ramblings from me.
