    Default Completed a collection

    Of course, it's not like it was hard or anything, since Pokemon Center sells the complete US Pokemon Mini set for about $10. ;-)

    (Note: these are extremely large photos)
    Everything (The floppy disk should give you an idea of the size.)
    Main unit
    Games (Party Mini is included with the handheld, so no box.)
    More games

    Pinball Mini is great fun. There are a bunch of short stages, each with a simple custom table. The object is to knock a certain number of balls into the holes within the allotted time. You only use the C button on the side to control the plunger in the center.

    Puzzle Collection has a game that's a little like the old sliding tile puzzles, except that you simply swap pieces two at a time, a tangram sort of game where you have to use the shaped tiles to match an outline, and a nice simplified version of the old Klotski game from Windows Entertainment Pack.

    Party Mini has about 7 or 8 really simple games that don't take more than about a minute to play. Good time killer.

    And I really haven't given Zany Cards a proper test, since I'm not a big card game player. Heh. But I can say that they are more traditional card games, and have nothing to do with the Pokemon trading card game at all.

    Now I need to get some of the Japanese games...

    Interesting, I should see about acquiring this. Now I know what those funky things I thought were tiny Game Boys on Yahoo! Auctions Japan are - and there's a lot of them, in the Game Boy section. If you can work with a go-between, I'd choose that method myself.

    WAIT!

    What was that about the whole set being $10? Please, tell me more. I've seen on the Pokemon Center website that the system with the pack-in game is $10. How much is/was each thing seperately? I'm asking because I'll be in NYC next week and may want to pick this up if it's cheap.
    Egbert, I miss you...

    If you select the Blue mini from the web site you can get the complete set for $9.95. Selecting the Green or Yellow bmps the complete set to $27.95. Go figure.

    Pinball Mini is the ultimate bathroom break game. Heh. I'm somewhere around stage 31 in Quest mode so far.

    Buy it here
    Use the pull-down menu near the Add to Bag button and select Complete Set. That gets you everything in those photos I took. Except for my floppy disk, obviously. ;-)

    It's also worth mentioning that there's an infrared port on top. Party Mini and Zany Cards have multiplayer support.

    Thank you very much! This will go next to my Sega McDonalds LCD game set! I had no idea that these existed!

    In this version of Puzzle Collection, does it save after each puzzle, or do you have to do everything over again once you turn it off, like in Pokemon Channel? I thought that was pretty stupid, not letting it save, and all, but it was fun, nonetheless.

    Puzzle Collection saves your progress, as do Pinball Mini and Party Mini. I don't think Zany Cards saves anything, however.

    They don't send to PO Boxes. *smacks forehead*

    Wonder if I could beat the system by having them send it to my home address...
