Hi all,

After 19 or so years pining after one, I finally have my holy grail!

Wanted to join a community where I can share my nostalgia or playing friends n64s and winning Pokemon Stadium tournaments at Burger King establishments (well, just the one...).

Unfortunately my n64 is unboxed. Never realised how hard it was to find the boxes now.

Glad you finally got a console, now you just have to find some games. You do want some games to go with that system right?

Welcome to :n64: 64Forever! Hope to see you around!

I've already got 7 games since purchasing it :)

Well, it came with 007 (boxed) and Earthworm Jim 3D (cart only).

Since then I've got Carmageddon 64, Turok 2, Mission Impossible (these came in a bundle on ebay for £9 delivered).

Also got Pokemon Stadium for £9.50 (was a listing in my local area so got lucky with this one).

Got Rayman 2 on the way which I made a sneaky bid in the middle of the night whilst working a nightshift.

Going to leave it at that for now as my next purchase is going to be an Expansion Pak as unfortunately it didn't come with one. I also want to save up a bit for the usual Zelda's and Mario's people get, but they're always upwards of £20 cart only so may need to wait a bit :)
Thank you for the welcomes, btw.

N64's aren't rare per sé in my area, it's because I purchased it from a local shop but un-boxed. I really want a box for it though, for collectors sake :)

The Burger King thing was basically a competition in the upstairs area and I won and got to choose anything I wanted. I chose a Pokeball with a gold plated card thing inside, similar to below:



I think mine was a Togebi one rather than Mewtwo though :)

That is an interesting detail about Burger King.
It's unrelated, but at the time, Mc'Donalds had their own kiosks with N64, but not all of them!
It must have been fun though. Congrats!

For whatever reason, i missed out on it in my area at the time. They then converted the kiosks to house GameCubes, but again, was only available in certain locations. :yeah:

Aha typical. UK or US?
