Backgammon for the HP67? Message #1 Posted by Palmer O. Hanson, Jr. on 21 June 2004, 9:41 p.m.
Last summer I purchased an HP67 at an estate sale. Among other items included with the calculator is a magnetic card pack labelled Backgammon. There are 36 cards in all. The cards all bear dates from 3.25.77 to 2.12.78. Cards bear labels from PGM LOGIC 1 through PGM LOGIC 5, Filling Home Base, Mask, Locke I/P Data and Locke Prgm. The remaining cards have some sort of seven digit code in formats such as 3 316103, 0 432330, etc. No instructions for playing the game accompanied the calculator. I am hoping to find someone who can provide the instructions.
The estate sale was held in Hendersonville, North Carolina. The previous owner of the HP67 was David C. Blundell. Another magnetic card pack includes cards labelled L1011 vs DC10 and Sabreliner Drag. I concluded that Mr. Blundell had worked in the aircraft industry. I called the American Institute of Astronautics and Aeronautics (AIAA) and asked if they had any information on Mr. Blundell. Their records show that he is deceased, his retirement home was in Hendersonville, and that he had been a member of the Southern California section of the AIAA. Can anyone help with locating the instructions?
The following is the listing of the contests of the card labelled "Filling Home Base."
