Description

This is an obscure Argentinian pong powered by a General Instrument AY-3-8500-7 chipset. Though it looks like a classic pong system, it is interesting for at least two reasons.
First, the paddles are built with calculator or remote control plastic cases. Once opened, you can clearly see the holes planned for the plastic keys. 
The second unsual fact is that, thanks to the GI AY-3-8500-7 chipset, the system offers a game rarely found on most pongs : FĂștbol de 5 (soccer with 5 players). One player control 3 paddles and the other "only" two.
