Mini Arcade Cabs

Postby Davester » Sat Oct 21, 2017 3:58 pm

I've given up on finding a SNES Mini so I wasted my funds on these!
I'd heard that these were available at Walmart in the U.S.... but I just found them up here!

Walmart in Cambridge had a bunch of them.... They also had Space Invaders and Pac man but I picked those up last year.

LOL... yep... it looks like Photobucket is getting cranky about hosting for free.
Can anyone recommend a free image hosting service (do they still exist?)

Was killing time in Tilsonburg, here's a picture of what I found at the Walmart there.

As for Photobucket you apparently have to pay to link images now.

I have an old Q*bert available, with new decals and new 6' AC adapter installed if anyone is interested. Trade for other handhelds!

I played Q-Bert as a kid on our old Apple IIe

I didnt know what i was doing until i got a bit older and realized i had to jump on each box and make them all change colour before the baddies could get me. I have loved the game for ever, thats why i chose that as the first one i bought.

Looks like Ben Bath and Beyond is going to carry these again. Also noticed an Atari and Sega Genesis in the recent flyer.
