16 + 63 = 1,000?

The equation above makes sense when you realize the 16 stands for the good ol' TurboGrafx-16 system, the 63 stands for the number of TurboChip (aka HuCard) games being sold in this craigslist ad and the 1,000 stands for the amount of money you'll have to fork over for the whole shebang--a TurboGrafx-16 system plus the 63 aforementioned games--to be yours.

By the way, a number of those 63 games are absolute winners, including (but not limited to) Air Zonk, Alien Crush, Blazing Lazers, the first two Bonk titles, Legendary Axe, Military Madness and Splatterhouse. A few of them aren't complete (i.e., they're missing a manual and/or a case), but it's still a pretty good deal--if you have 1,000 bucks to blow.

oh man, i so much live TurboGrafx-16, and Atari 2600. Those were the days :3
When is your birthday btw?

Yeah, I have fond memories of my TG-16, too. I never owned 63 games for it, but I definitely had more than 20. Wish I had never sold it :(

Hmmmmm, why do you want to know my birthday? :)

Unfortunately, I do not. And if I did? I'd be spending it on something else, probably...like a PS3 or Xbox...or my car loan. Boo.

Again, I understand *completely*, Justin. As much of a TG16/PCE fan as I am, I wouldn't blow $1,000 on the system either -- at least, not all at once :)
