    Now I have no idea about these things but my friend said that it's worth a few bob. Is he right?

    I bought it when i was a kid at a car boot sale but I was devastated to discover that it wouldn't work when I brought it home. Turns out its an American cart so wouldn't work on my nes.

    Any ideas?

    Sell it, they're worth good money. Buy a new everdrive.

    It's very easy to mod a PAL NES to play that game. All you do is cut the foot on a chip.

    Better off selling it though, it's quite a rarity and quite sought after.

    Sells for a fair chunk of change alright. Angry Video Game Nerd did a video on it a few years ago if you want to find out more about it. Not a great game, and some of the games on the cart don't function properly at all, but it's fairly hard to come by (probably because the original creator has stacks of them sitting in his house...).

    Sold listings on ebay have it selling in similiar condition to yours for about 220 to 250 euro. A sealed one sold for 350. Nice find!

    stick it up for sale in the marketplace, you might get someone to buy it, saves the ebay/paypal fees (and possibly postage cost too), or people on adverts.ie offering 20 quid and a broken phone.

    Adverts is the most stressful place to sell anything

    Be careful on the Marketplace, folk may offer a fiver and a bag of smokey bacon crisps, and by folk I mean Jack Burton

    But we do have a couple of high rollers there that might spring for it, if it was priced keenly for what it is, and you're unlikely to get lowballs as it's predominantly regulars that haunt it.

    I didn't do anything with it to be honest. I still have it, I just put it up on a shelf after I made this thread and completely forgot about it until now haha :D

    Maybe I'll throw it up on eBay or something

    MOD EDIT: No looking for offers on the main forum, if you feel like trading or selling it then put it in the Arcade and Retro Marketplace, or stick it on Adverts
