where's custer?

I used only mainstream games. I think everything here is Atari, Activision, Sega, etc.

So no Custer. Sorry.

Shall we post our answers?

If you have answers, go crazy. Perhaps use SPOILERS or similar so people can skip by your post if they want. :^)

My answers:
1. ?
2. Yar's Revenge
3. Baseball (or whatever Atari's name for it was: I had the Sears Telegames version)
4. Adventure (w00t!)
5. ?
6. ? (Jungle Hunt?)
7. Mountain King
8. E.T.
9. ? (I know I've seen it before though, Riddle of the Sphinx?)
10. Hangman?
11. Moon Patrol?
12. Kaboom! (The colors gave it away as an Activision or Imagic game)
13. Pac-Man
14. Dolphin
15. Boxing
16. Golf
17. ? (Miner 2049'r?)
18. Football (Was tough for me, but the thin strip of darker green at the top gave it away - I think it was one of Mattel's sports ports)
19. ? (My guess is Jawbreaker. A friend says Dig Dug, in which case that'd be a Pooka)
20. Popeye (easy)
21. Dragrace
22. Pitfall (really easy)
23. ?
24. Combat
25. Superman
26. ?
27. Circus Atari (or Skydiver; the sticking-out legs were used in both games)
28. Donkey Kong (yes, that's supposed to be the ape himself)
29. ?
30. Defender (that's a Lander, to be precise)
31. Empire Strikes Back (one of the best games for the system, IMHO)
32. Rescue from Gargamel's Castle
33. ?
34. ?
35. ? (Tennis?)
36. Asteroids
37. ?
38. ? (Fishing Derby?)

I count 27/38 for rufbo. You missed some I just knew you'd get, because they're games I know you'd played.
