I came across some guy's auction for "Nintendo Mario Madness Money". By his description, it seems like some place in Las Vegas held some kind of Nintendo party, printed prize money, and this guy thinks it's worth $97.75. Or is this an actual thing licensed by Nintendo?

Not to say he is lying, because he very well may not be, but anyone could have done that on a laser jet printer....

I remember those! I got $100 worth when I made it to the finals in the Nintendo WOrld Championship tournament back in 1990. I bought a Power Glove at K-Mart with it LOL

Ouch, youd've been better off keeping the money! So it is an actual Nintendo thing, not some worthless private stuff?

Maybe the NWC is the "party in Las Vegas" the guy was talking about.

You got into the NWC finals (I was born in December of that year, so I missed them)???!!! It looks real to me, and could they really be used to buy Nintendo stuff? (I gathered from WOG post that you could) Were there any other ways to get it than the NWC?

I got a 10$ one for getting into the semi-finals myself.

I don't suppose any of you guys would have any of these left over somewhere, would you?
