Before there was Mario Kart, there was Mystery Cart:

Mystery cart!

Shelby found this Atari 2600 cart lodged in the floor under an eighty-pound steel plate at the new Resistor space.  Other than a ’78 copyright, there’s no indication of what game it might be.  Anyone care to make a guess before we hook it up and read the ROM?

    you randomly move to new digs, see an eighty-pound steel plate, you happen to pop it open and find an Atari cart there?? How is that possible?

    What? you don't have a spare 2600 lying around ? I guess I could send you mine :-)

    my guess would be “Jungle Fever”

    I've got the chip hooked up to an arduino and have dumped the contents to hex. Get your guesses in now! :)

      Being that it was buried, I'm going to guess Dig Dug.

    I remember a game Canyon Bomber (?) was that Atari or ColecoVision? How about Centipede?

    Some things weren't meant to be found. It was under that plate for a reason.
