    Default Gameboy display case

    Here are some pics of a gameboy display case I picked up several years ago.

    Here is the front:

    Here is the front with the compartment (which holds manuals) open:

    Here's the back:

    Here is the paper insert (which includes artwork for "Doomsayer" - which was apparently never released:

    When I come home from a long day in Hell, there's nothing I'd rather reach for than a fire-brewed bottle of Styx Beer. Made from the filthiest waters from our own River Styx. Styx Beer is a third more toxic than any other regular beer. The worst beer - the filthiest beer - the deadliest beer. It's Styx Beer!

    You really wonder, who would need 3 copies of Penguin Wars, 3 of Ishido and 2 of Doomsayer, especially if it was never released.

    Nice display case tho. You can even hang it on the wall.

    It was a weird sale in Denver several years ago (probably mid nineties) - similar to the blue star sales
    where they rented one of the buildings at the stock show complex and had dealers of electronic goods selling all sorts of weird stuff. Some of the dealers had games - nothing particularly outstanding (at the time - I am sure today I would look at what they had differently) except this.

    Oh, I have exactly the same thing, found here in Luxembourg (let's say Germany to make it simple). It came with stickers you could tape behind every cartridge, where you could write high scores in order to remember them for each game.

    What an amazing coincidence.
