Lol @ pricklymustard.... yeah, the unfortunate thing is, I can't change the name without losing my 300 positive feedbacks. Stuck for life. :p

It basically has little dots that you can move around the screen, and sometimes walls and other dots that you have to avoid or otherwise interact with. The game board and cards and stuff are for various games that come with it, and are to basically supplement the console for what it cannot do (like display text).

Really, the only thing I did with it was test it out and make sure pong was working, so I don't know how to play all the cool board games and whatnot.

I'd be interested in buying on it, but I bet a real collector would really like it more. Plus, I'm poor. :p

I actually sold it already... ended the auction early because the shipping costs were calculating too high (and stupid eBay doesn't let you revise things like that while the auction is in progress). I intended to relist it with new shipping options, but a couple people contacted me directly, so I ended up selling it outside of eBay entirely.

$305 total... $30 of it was from one guy who wanted the AC adapter box, the other $275 was an offer that I took for the rest of the system.

But yea, the one guy really did pay me $30 for an empty box about 2 inches in size.

You'd be surprised how much people pay for ridiculous things. Someone just recently sold a pair of the Queen of England's panties for 2k, if I recall. Take into mind the seller obtained them 30 years ago.
