2020 Reflections

As we ring in the new year I can only think "wow what a year". Some people will say this is the worst year, other will say it the best year, and then you have people who say "WTF". Reflect back at the used game market at the start of the year when we were able to get games for a nominal cost. Then March 21 hit like a ton of bricks.  Everyone was locked down; all cargo was stopped. The world looked on as the second pandemic of the 21th century hit.  Since March the "Second hand gam

Working list of World DMG Carts Part 12 NINTENDO POWER Cartridges

As I was working on the Tetris list I realized that the little known NP Carts have not been discussed much.  A quick Google search and there are a handful of good solid reference(see below) to the Nintendo Power Kiosk and how they were intended to be the "new way" to distribute games without real carts.  Sadly it never took off and so we are left with stuck in time game carts that are loaded with unknown games until you power up with your retro GB. Summary: There were 129 known titles

Working list of World Gray Carts Part 8 HB/INDIE/Other

So today i will touch on the more obscure listing for GB carts.  As a junkie for GB i have looked into the addition of the Obscure list to add to my world lists and sets. i have identified a few that will be in the OG catagory and few that fall in the after OG/ and color. VG is littered with various HB and INDIE companies and where do they fall in to a "Collectors" set.  As far as I'm concerned the HB, INDIE, and whatevers belong in the set. Disagree as you may.  so with that being sai
