I discovered this today when looking to see if anybody had updated the IntelliWiki page:

intellivision.us/intvgames/intylines/intylines.php

This newsletter is very fascinating.  If only I had known about it in the 90s!

Who is Ralph Linne?  I'm not familiar with that name, and he obviously has a lot of inside information.

Very nice! I wonder what has become of the Editor.

Some stuff is wrong in his articles.

He writes ESC for the ECS, even as he writes it fully Entertainment Computer System.

And the designer of Pitfall is David Shaw. Wink

I noticed "ESC" all throughout as well, and I would have written it off to an autocorrect issue, except there are a few glaring misspellings in there too which the autocorrect would have caught.

Much of this information we learned a few years later, when it appeared on the original BSR website.

I really would love to see if the other newsletters turn up at some point.  If his physical address was still valid, I think somebody would have contacted him by now.

Yes there was and still is a Ralph Linne.

I wrote those newsletters due to my love of the games and the system.

They were simple newsletters plus there was no spell checker in the software I used back then.

I'm so happy to hear from you.  I read with interest the fifth issue, which went into depth about World Series Major League Baseball.  It would be great to see more of these in the future.

Were there actual expansion tapes created by Mattel with real team stats?
