Friday night I picked up my biggest game purchase ever: 389 CIB (there are 3 that doesn't have the manuals) games in total for Gameboy, Gameboy Color and Gameboy Advance. There are duplicates that I'm

Down to needing only 2 more games for a complete Famicom Disk System BOXED collection.

Put up some display cabinets last night, felt some pride 馃槢

Some new stuff this week. World Class Track Meet is a repro box and I just found out the manual for that game is within the Power Pad manual, so it's not quite "CIB". Captain Planet actually has the cardboard riser, which was a pleasant surprise. Big thanks to @DK for the nice Laser Invasion.

And a few more variants: Weirdly-Spaced TV version of Win, Lose, or Draw and 1 Hit version of Dragon Warrior. And then random Sunset riders box and manual I got for a good price.

Now we all know Red Dead Redemption 2 is actually a prequel to the original Red Dead Redemption, but does anyone know where this game fits into the timeline? What about Wild Arms?

Nice! I really enjoyed playing through Lone Ranger. The changing gameplay styles is creative. Playing the game with a zapper at your side is a cool experience. It's like an adventure, action, platformer game. Awesome stuff.

Added 2 more CIB Genesis games to the collection. I had聽been wanting to play Streets of Rage 3 for a long time. I had a blast finally playing through the superior Japanese version. Great stuff!聽

Also added Task Force Harrier EX. I'm always looking to play Shoot em ups. This one, I'll admit, is pretty disappointing lol. Though I have been enjoying the soundtrack.聽I need to play more of it.

Please tell me someone on this forum has played through this game with a Zapper in a holster at their side.

well, I have been collecting discontinued game systems for 30 years now so...probably not... better than drugs right? Well, except being a junkie is probably cheaper these days 馃檪

I think I'm at the 25 year mark for collecting and, while I may never stop, there is an end in sight. I'm going all digital starting next generation. Within one year, there will be nothing new to collect!

I found a picture in the thread that Braveheart69 linked to (https://connect.gocollect.com/discussion/29/variation-scans-needed/p9). The picture was provided by @Dr. Morbis.

In fact, it looks like he bought it sealed and opened it up. I found this listing in聽the_wizard_666's game contents list which I assume is Dr. Morbis' copy.


Hollywood Squares (Black Version)
     - Cartridge (NES-HL-USA, blue)
     - Box (NES-HL-USA-1, black)
     - Manual (NES-HL-USA, blue)
     - Gametek Poster/Advert (GAM-NES-US-2)
     - Gametek Registration Card (GAM-NES-US)
     - Nintendo Power Subscription Card (PMG-AA-USA)
     - Flat Black Dust Sleeve

Yeah, my copy of Hollywood Squares came sealed with a blue manual in a black box.聽 I actually had to track down the black manual variant separately...

Against all odds, I was able to track down a sealed copy in an unlikely place. I opened it with baited breath and... BOOM! Black Box Manual! Woohoo!

Head over to the Sealed NES Contents thread for the full list of stuff. You can also see them in the pic below.

I had a couple of interesting things fall into my hands today which surprised me.聽 Diablo Hellfire (PC) for $2, and then over at the half price, and it has been a LONG time since I've seen any pop up, but during the week I've been grabbing up some TSR D&D Endless Quest books.聽 They had a couple $5 books I lacked I got a few days back, but they had a 20% off sale going today through Sunday, went back and grabbed a couple $15 harder to find ones for $12 so I was happy.聽 I saw a couple more but no way I'm paying $40-50 on that. 馃槈聽 I really find those books quite fun, kind of an adult form of choose your own adventure.

Bought a bunch of Swatch games this week during GS' christmas sale, Collection of Mana, Dragon Marked for Death, Katamari Reroll, Tales of Vesperia, Cave Story +, Blade Chasers: Nightwar, and Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon. Also got Freedom Planet from Best Buy, and my free joycon repair from Nintendo came in, so now i just need to repair that kickstand and i'm all set.

I finally got a copy of Mega Man for the Game Gear, which came with a copy of the manual.聽 It was an auction ending on Christmas Eve and I manged to get the pair for cheaper than just the cartridge.聽 It arrived yesterday.聽 The front cover was torn off and the seller didn't mention that it was filled with his original, childhood art on almost every, single page.聽 I need to make a post dedicated to the manual alone.

It was my initial intent to restore the manual, sell it and try to recoup the costs but after I saw all of the art the seller had drawn when he was probably 6 or 7, there's no way I'm getting rid of it.聽 I love that stuff.聽 Best buy I've made all year.

Finally made it to my parents house to reclaim my childhood collection (what鈥檚 left of it). My brother is also giving me all of his stuff because he prefers emulating and hacking games on PC (he鈥檚 keeping a few strategy guides though. I just have to pack everything and ship it to myself.聽

The cardboard boxes need serious restoration, this will be a slow project and I will post updates as I go through everything. Also the NES bag is filled to the brim with loose NES games. Will reveal all the stuff you can鈥檛 see when I go through them at my house!!!

p.s. can someone identify this NES bag for me?
