What did you have before your first computer?

Hi, what were you playing before your first computer?
Before I even knew my Spectrum exsisted I was playing the Grandstand game FIREFOX F-7, what a game that was with great sound fx and visuals for the time, totally loved it

Atari 2600 and I had one of those electronic chess boards which I used to play a hell of a lot. Also a small snooker table in the back room

Atari 2600 clone with 100 built in games. At the time I didn't have a clue that it's actually Atari, nor I heard of it until many years later. And before that few lcd games, don't know their official names.. yeah and a small plastic Romanian pinball, that I used to modify, building ramps and stuff

Pong clone with 4 extra games; original Asteroids arcade was one favourite. Then Atari 2600, still in working order.

Grandstand Scramble, PacMan II (Entex), Frogger and Amidar. I did have BMX Flyer but it broke.

I remember I borrowed Munchman off a friend and returned it to him several hours later as I had manage to clock the scoreboard more than once.

Gakken Pinball, the white/blue/red version (1981).

Still hope Madrigal comes up with a simulator one day.

I had other LCD handhelds, some PacMan clone where you could go under 2 or 3 bridges, can't quite remember.
[edit]
Found it, it's Mini-Munchman.

Before my Spectrum (and since dad's PC was off-grounds), all I had was a formula one LCD handheld minigame. It's still somewhere at my parents home. Tried to Google it but didn't find it. It's really old. Like early 1980's old.

Atari 2600 for games, pencil and paper for writing/drawing. I mention the latter because after the 2600 was a c64 and Speedscript got me through many homework assignments.
