Exchange offer

When the Intellivision II came out, Electric Company Word Fun was found not to work with the new version of the system. Mattel had an offer to exchange the non-working Electric Company Word Fun with any game the consumer wanted. A group of teenagers took advantage of this and bought out the entire local supply of now bargain-priced Electric Company Word Fun cartridges and exchanged them for brand new cartridges of their choice.
