    Oh yeah, sorry. I was unsure about it when I posted, I guess I should have checked first. Thanks for not going crazy about it like some others on DP would.

    So my question is, how much would you pay for one of these today? How much is one worth to you? Considering the last one went for $1300.00 on Ebay AND another one went for $1000.00...

    4ever2600: THe reserve when it went for $1300 was never met. And $1000? Where are you pulling these numbers from? When they actually changed hands, it was for over $2K apiece.

    I'd rather find out how to get the amount of points people got to win there store to go to the championship than own it. I'm fine with just playing the rom on my computer.

    Please make no confusion here: the II on the cart refers to the Competition (second competition).
    The carts used and made officially for the tournament were this Genny cart and the DK one for SNES. This for sure, since is told on the rules booklet.

    The infamous BWVGC I and III don't exist.

    Instead, there could have been different games for demo plays, just like the NWC.

    So for the first competition what did they use? If we already went over this and I didn't see it, sorry for being stupid or something.

    For the first competition, as is clearly told in the event booklet (check your copy od Donkey Kong's one too, since it's the same), they have used:

    NBA Jam
    Sonic 3
    Clay Fighter

    The final round has been held in Fort Lauderdale.
    Winners:
    SNES-Mark Guinane
    Genesis-Fred Dughty

    Between the prizes, they have been "digitalized" to be put in the Sega CD game Super Strike Trilogy (unreleased?).

    $2000.00?!??!!?!? Holy CRAP!

    Hey DreamTR, about the prices, I thought I read that in an earlier post on DP about the Blockbuster VGC... Course I could be way wrong... But... No one still answered the question, how much would one of these things go for today?

    It's hard to say what it would go for. There are a handful of collectors that would pay $1500 on the spot for the game, I am sure of that. As far as rarity, it is nearly impossible to locate, and since the two confirmed ones are in collector's hands, it's not going to be possible to see what it would go for on running auction until someone puts one out there.

    There are not too many Genesis collectors, and this definitely does not have the lore behind it like the NWC. Rarity does not always equate to value. I think as a running auction, no reserve, it would hit $1200-1600 MAX.

    Just to be clear, I would have never sold it if I didn't need money for my engagement ring to Achika (who some of you know, some of you don't). That being said, the high asking price wasn't desired; it was needed.

    Yeah, I think it would really be interesting... But I figured I'd see if I could SKIP the entire Ebay fiasco if someone wanted it outright first... If there are not any takers then I will put it on Ebay...

    If you advertise an ebay auction on here and other forums that are heavily dedicated to classics and people want to own in there collection you may get more money for it. If your not willing to sell it unless for a specific price just set a reserve on it. I'd be willing to lose a couple bucks if I owned something that rare and it didnt meet the price on EBay, you'll whind up making up for it anyhow in the end by selling it to someone on here or on another collectors form. Just ask for another 10-15$ or however much u spent to list the ad on EBay to make up for ur loss.

    Cant wait to see the picture. Haven't seen the actual game since the actual competition.
