Once the video game craze took off and running, numerous companies, including
Coleco and Mattel, started producing small self-contained handheld video
game consoles. Among the many types of these games were sports games such
as football and baseball, casino and card games, as well as miniture versions
of arcade games. These type of systems are still quite popular, both the
early variants with collectors, and the newer incarnations with players.
