Hi!

If you search Ebay for "Space Squash" you'll see many pictures of the box. (I can take pictures of it for you if they're not high resolution enough).

Hi,

I missed this campaign (it ended before I started collecting). Please let us know when they are up for sale on your site as I am interested in purchasing a bunch. Could you please provide a link to your site?

Thanks!

@speedyink: I played the VB for a while today testing out my new games (see below) and didn't notice any glitching so not sure what's up with that, but I'll get the console fixed in due time anyway.
I totally agree about Red Alarm. I had seen footage of the game prior to playing it, and based on that, I thought it was going to be really confusing. It wasn't, when I actually tried it out for myself.


I received a bundle of games (Red Alarm, Panic Bomber, Vertical Force, Golf, Baseball 95, Mario's Tennis, Teleroboxer, Galatic Pinball, V-Tetris and Space Squash) the other day which I got for a really good price. I also got Wario Land from the same seller for an ok price.
-----
It was 1:19 AM local time.
Had I slept at all? I wasn't sure.
It didn't matter though, because I was wide awake now. No time for snoozing.
In approximately three minutes my virtual Boy collection would either grow significantly or remain humble.
1:22 AM. The last minute was upon me.
Tick, tock. Tick, tock.
Soon it was all to be over, and I would either go back to sleep with a smile on my face,
or lay wide awake long into the night, pondering what I could have done different.
10 seconds left. SONIC BOOM! I entered my max bid, and lo and behold--another auction won!

Another day, another night,
some more games won in an exciting fight.
Now--time to sleep. Don't let the bed bugs bite!

Beside the games, I also got the VB headphones via a Dutch game site. The box is in really good shape, as are the headphones.

@speedyink: Exactly, it's on the medallion. Thank you for the tip! I did a "zip tie fix"! Clever. I will probably wait a little while before I send it off, but I actually started noticing some glitching while playing, which I suspect has to do with the ribbon cables.

I have mostly played Red Alarm and am currently trying to get past the stage 3 bosses 😁 It's cool.

So the VB arrived today! Right away I noticed it was kind of loose in the box which had me worried (as it didn´t come with the cardboard). It was wrapped up pretty good in bubble wrap though.

A disappointing thing, after inspecting the parts closer, which was not mentioned in the auction or visible in the photos, is a hairline crack in the center plastic part. Also, Golf (which was included), had just been thrown in the console-box without any protection whatsoever, which has resulted in a dented game-box. I will of course talk to the seller about these issues.

Other than that I´m very happy with the VB. I started up Red Alarm and damn, it´s a much better experience than what I expected! :D It´s really awesome. My neck, which is already not super, will take a beating though so I will have to figure out a solution for that. I saw a tripod mount on Ebay which I might get.

Some questions:

1) Is the IPD dial supposed to be kind of hard to turn? (feels thick, for lack of a better word to describe it).
2) The screens seems perfectly fine. I can´t see any issues. I assume it´s still a good idea to get the "solder fix" or should I wait until they start giving me problems?
3) Do you think the hairline crack on the plastic part will get worse if I use the stand while playing?

Thanks!

@Minggus: Thank you! :-)

@Patrik: Thanks! I have a couple of bundles on the way so I will wait until those have arrived until I get more games. I really appreciate the help though!

The latest addition: Red Alarm. Ordered it from Japan via Ebay. Too bad about the tax (wasn´t sure about how much the tax was going to be but now I know), but the price was still ok. It´s a nice feeling unboxing an almost 25 year old game :)
