I’ve been casting around for a little while for a new collection to pursue. My last serious effort was the Peanuts badges (Americans call them pins) by Butterfly Originals. I have just shy of 70 now, which is basically the whole series.I continue to collect Laurent Durieux prints but I am running out of wall space. So what else fits the bill?
Retro gaming is a thing now. It has been for a few years. As a game I can point to the 90’s as my favourite decade for video games and it all started for me with the Sega Master System II. I own one (not the one i originally had, unfortunately) and I have a few games in good condition to go with it. They look good lined up and are relatively affordable these days.
So I’ve racked my brain to come up with a list of all the MSII games I ever played. My goal is to collect them all in good condition, in box, with manual. The hit list, as far as I remember so far, is as follows:
Alex Kidd: High-Tech World
Back to the Future III
Castle of Illusion (starring Mickey Mouse)
Fantasy Zone II
Ghouls ‘n Ghosts
Land of Illusion (starring Mickey Mouse)
The Lion King
Lucky Dime Caper, The (starring Donald Duck)
The New Zealand Story
There have to be a few more but they aren’t jumping out at me right now. Still, the above looks like a reasonable start. eBay here I come!
