    Default Unique Game and Watch item

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...&category=8106

    I love these game and watch things. I could very easily be persuaded to start collecting them..... if I won the lottery. Or burnt myself on McDonald's coffee.

    Mr firend Justine picked up one that he claims is the rarest one of all.

    Donkey Kong Circus "backlit by the sun". If anyone has any game and watch knowledge, let me know if it really is that rare.

    (Post 100!!!! Yea)
    I am in fact the guy that made the Raisins prototype worth thousands less by dumping it. "D'oh!!"

    Game and Watch games were released in all 3 markets. The Donkey Kong Circus was only released in the US. It was released in Sep of 84. It is actually the exact same game as Mickey Mouse, another Game and Watch title, that was released 7 months earlier. It was also only released in the US.

    Sorry but I don't know much about the rarity yet. I suspect Flagman may be rarer


    Edit
    Here is a rarity list from a UK site. I don't know how accurate it is.

    The rarest was actually a prize sent to winners of a contest in Japan. I have seen it sell by itself for $600+ on ebay. I wanna say its "Mario Juggle" or something like that. Its yellow with a flip top lid and as for the contest, strange enough I think it was for a Super Famicom game.

    The game is a special version of Super Mario Bros. You could win this if you participated in a F1 race competiotion (Famicom Disk) in Japan back in '87. Check my auction to read about the other prizes. The accessories kit is the first ever to hit the Western world.
