How I started my collection
It all started when my childhood neighbor came with Donkey Kong Game & Watch. He shows me and explain me it is a portatile video game you can play wherever you want. I played a couple time and simply fell in love. I started to ask all my school mates if anyone else have a Game&Watch. One of my friends was a big collector. He showed me a bookcase in his TV room full of Game&Watch games. I started to play a lot and some of my best friends lends me some games during the whole weekend. The next step was start buying my own games. My dad found a guy who travel a lot and asked him to buy one for me. My first Game&Watch was Turtle Bridge. As you probably read on my about page (bottom link) I was a gamer since I was a small kid, so, Game&Watch was part of my life.Turtle Bridge - my first Game&Watch
This game suffered a lot... I was playing every day and during the weekends in almost non-stop gameplay sessions. I was very curious about to find some tricks to get the higher scores. I found out that if you play without the batteries cover, and press and release the batteries very slowly, some kind of tilt happen and your level and score jump to the heights. I opened Turtle Bridge several times trying to discover something that I can do to cheat the game and also to know how they assemble the game. I was really crazy about this mini-games.
The only Game&Watch I had on those years was Turtle Bridge, but the good thing is that nobody has my game, so I was constantly exchanging with my friends and also with friends of friends. I spent the whole weekend playing until Monday when my Turtle Bridge returned to the home. With this, I played almost all the games available and started to build a buying priority. My second Game&Watch was Donkey Kong Jr., then Donkey Kong. I stayed for many years without buying any game until finding some offers on eBay. Then the list started to grow fast and I have a lot of games in my private collection now. Watch my gameplay videos on Youtube!

I am a huge fan of vintage Nintendo handheld games and became a collector after playing some titles when I was a kid. Today I still searching for some games that I need and usually buy them on eBay or directly from other collectors. I believe Nintendo Game&Watch games are creative and beautifully developed. Could you imagine a kid in the mid of the '80s where video games were something restricted and to play some decent games you should go to an arcade house? Then this kid gets their hands in a beautiful, colored box with an electronic mini-game inside. Each box contains only one game, then to play different titles you'd have to buy more, or exchange with friends. That was magical! Nintendo Game&Watch games are perfect in my opinion: lovely characters, great stories and themes and a lot of creativity - which made the difference in those early days of video games. Now, you can start collecting your own vintage games buying them online on eBay or Amazon, or by visiting some specialized shops like Big Rig Bounty Hunters, Cajun Pawn Stars, American Pickers, American Restoration, Pawn Stars, rare toys, rare vintage games. Have fun!
