    Default Which Club Nintendo Rewards should I get?

    So I have about 600 Club Nintendo points to spend before they expire next month. In total, I've got enough for either the Game and Watch: Ball repro, or both of the Game and Watch DS games. I'll be getting this strictly as a collectable item. Which do you guys think I'd be better off with?

    Thanks!

    Get the G&W repro, and I'll trade you my two new G&W DS collections for it!

    I think the Game and Watch:Ball will be the most collectable. Considering the price to get it, most people get the DS Game and Watch collections instead of the Game and Watch:Ball.

    Those Hanafuda Cards seem lke a cool collectable also, but they are really small and seem cheap. I am considering getting that Messenger Bag. Seems like it could serve a purpose and also be a collectable, but I don't wear purses.

    Shoot, they expire? I'll never have enough for the G&W collections, the only things I really want. I don't buy enough new Nintendo 1st party games, and if they expire, I'll never make it.

    I'm not sure what determines that they expire, I got an e-mail a while back letting me know some would be.

    I shamelessly emailed all my friends and family asking for codes if they weren't going to use them. A surprising number came through. The problem now is that I believe it is harder or impossible to get points from the same game twice.

    4. When do my Coins expire?

    The length of time that Coins are valid is measured in Club Nintendo years. A Club Nintendo year runs from July 1 to June 30. Coins are valid for at least two Club Nintendo years; they expire on the third June 30th after their issuance. For example, if you are issued Coins on February 14, 2009, they will expire on June 30, 2011.

    I'd get one of the three aforementioned items, myself (Game & Watch for DS 1 / 2 or the repro). The rest of the stuff...I mean, I guess they're interesting little knick-knacks, but I don't see the real use or value in any of them. Maybe if they had custom controllers, or something else that enhanced actual gaming...but...most of that stuff is just junk, IMO.
    I have no signature.

    This reminds me...I have to scrounge up 100 points before June 30 so I can get some of that platinum action this year. I just can't stand the idea of opening games before I intend to play them.

    I got the paper fan (the beige one with Mario) and the Animal Crossing playing cards (which are really nice).

    The one thing I'd avoid are the multicolored Wiimote straps. Once you remove them from the package, they're just colored straps, nothing more. Had they have little figurines, it would have been more interesting. Even the two G&W for DS compilations are worth it only if you're a collector.

    I wonder what will the Platinum prize be this year, since this is the first year I'm eligible...
