    Still not to late for the NES and Spectrum, they can be still be bought.

    Who remembers the rock hard joystick without fail you would have a blister in the middle of you hand playing Daley Thompsons decathlon.

    For me two board games, Space Crusade and Hero Quest, I played them for years with friends from 10-13 years old.

    CB Radio with a massive antenna and power amplifier/booster......was good fun and nice to meet local enthusiasts (especially the ladies....Ginger Cookie was the best - her parents owned a cake shop/bakery on Lee Street, Oldham!).
