How about a net.games.video.qbert? There are plenty more interesting
games to talk about in this newsgroup...like Questron, fer instance.
I just finished Questron yesterday after many months.  It is the greatest
graphics adventure in the universe (of Apple ][+).  It looks a lot like 
Ultima II but has *much* better dungeons and has an endgame which is well
worth the time to play it.  I hate games that require ages to play and
then say "CONGRATULATIONS! YOU HAVE VANQUISHED THE EVIL ZULAK AND HAVE SAVED
THE UNIVERSE! WATCH FOR BOGUSADVENTURE 2 FROM TOTALLYAMAZING SOFTWARE"
when your done.  Questron gives you a lot of variety in styles of play
(outdoors, towns, cathedrals, blackjack, roulette, video games, dungeons,
and castles) and an entertaining display at the end in which you come before
the king, get a precision drill display from the king's guards, a trumpet
fanfare and a speech ("YOU HAVE VANQUISHED... ") then you go meet Mesron 
the wizard who tells you "WATCH FOR QUESTRON 2 ... " (well, at least the 
presentation has class.)
