    Default NES pirate carts...how to find them??

    Where is the best place to find NES 72-pin pirate carts other than ebay? Supervision, Hong Kong corporation, Sachen, and odd pirates. I'm sure there is a billion of them ( right?? ) , but I don't know where to find them on a regular basis. Surely some Taiwan, Hong Kong, or Japanese gaming company has a retro community where these can be found. And is there a list...is a list even possible?

    I'd like to know too. I have a very small collection and want more! The only place I've been able to rock is eBay and it's not exactly easy to find these there. I'd LOVE to find some more 72-pin Hong Kong Corp carts, especially since some of them are games not released in the US.

    AAARGH!!!!

    First ya go sailing across the Pacific, and then ye head for tha South China Sea. Sail around in a circle for a while and hope that some Pirates stop you and board your boat. Once they have done so, then you ask nicely and hope that they are carrying their supply of NES pirates. Problem solved. Just hope that they dont make ye walk tha plank. Water on those games is never a good thing.
    Because it makes no attempt to be great, it is therefore extremely great.

    Good one.

    I have found several at swap meets and some at local retro gaming stores.

    Come to Thailand. They're sold in every store that sells electronics, from the smallest retailer to the largest chain. Get yer own PokeFami or PolyStation while you're at it. You'll find them as GBA carts as well. You'll also find them all over HK, China, and Malaysia.

    Not exactly online, but it's easier shopping when you can pop into ANY store.

    Go to the Chinatown in your city. If there are any flea markets or pawnshops there you'll be singing "Avast ye matey!" soon enough.

    You mentioned eBay, but do you also check the European eBays? Especially the Spanish eBay.es seems to have pirated NES carts on a regular basis. I even found an online Spanish retailer that had loads and loads of pirated NES carts for relatively cheap prices, but I unfortunately lost the link due to a HD failure. If I come across it again though, I'll post it here.

    I'm always looking for new boxed NES accessories. If you've got any for sale, shoot me a PM!
