Stadium Events

Stadium Events NES PricesNew Price: $41,300 Used Price: $1,000
An auction for a sealed copy of Stadium Events set a record for the highest priced game ever sold. The game was released in a limited number of stores in 1987, but Nintendo bought the rights to this Bandai game so they could release it as World Class Track Meet. This is considered to be the rarest of the licensed NES games with only an estimated 200 copies in existance. Don't confuse this with the PAL version (see below) which is not as rare but looks very similar. You can use a Stadium Events version guide to tell them apart.

Nintendo Campus Challenge 1991

Nintendo Campus Challenge NES PricesNew Price: NA Used Price: $20,100
In 1991 Nintendo held a video game tournament at college campuses across the country. For the competition they created a cartridge which had three games on it, Super Mario 3, Dr. Mario, and PinBot, and a 6 minute time limit. Only one of these is known to exist and was found at a ex-Nintendo employee's garage sale. The game sold on ebay this past summer for $20,100.

Nintendo World Championships Gold

Nintendo World Championships Gold PricesNew Price: NA Used Price: $18,000
Considered to be the "Holy Grail" of game collecting by many, it is no longer the most expensive video game or even the most expensive Nintendo game. Nintendo gave away 26 of these gold cartridges after the 1990 Nintendo World Championships (see below). The game cartridge has Super Mario, Tetris, and Rad Racer on one cartridge and gives players a combined score for all three games after playing for six minutes.

Nintendo World Championships Gray

Nintendo World Championships Gray PricesNew Price: NA Used Price: $5,500
The gray version of Nintendo World Championships is not as rare as the Gold version, but still sells for more than $5,000. Nintendo held a video game competition in 1990 to determine the best Nintendo players in three different age groups. The winner in each age group and each city was given a gray cartridge as a prize so only 90 of these exist today.

Myriad 6-in-1

Myriad 6-in-1 NES PricesNew Price: $5,000 Used Price: $985
Myriad 6 in 1 is a collection of six games on one cartridge. Myriad bought all the remaining 6-in-1 cartridges from Caltron (see below) as they were going out of business. Myriad then changed the sticker on the front and added a unique serial number to each cartridge. The game was unlicensed by Nintendo and there are thought to be fewer than 100.

Stadium Events PAL Version

PAL Stadium Events NES PricesNew Price: $4,000 Used Price: $990
The European version of Stadium Events is not as rare as its American counterpart, but is still an expensive NES game. The PAL version was released in multiple languages so some versions have English wording, while others have German or even Dutch. The game isn't as rare because Nintendo never recalled it like they did with the NTSC version.

Caltron 6-in-1

Caltron 6-in-1 NES PricesNew Price: $1,775 Used Price: $860
Caltron 6-in-1 is an unlicensed game for the NES and is notoriously bad. All six games are of very low quality and this helped limit the number of games sold. Caltron Industries shut-down as a video game publisher after this game came out and it is the only game they ever released. The six games on the cartridge Cosmos Cop, Adam and Eve, Magic Carpet 1001, Balloon Monster, Porter, and Bookyman, are all take offs on other popular NES games.

Peek-A-Boo Poker

Peek-A-Boo Poker NES PricesNew Price: NA Used Price: $1,300
Peek-A-Boo Poker is another unlicensed game for the NES, but it is also adult rated. The game is basically strip poker on the NES with female characters on the game removing clothes if you win. The game was made by Panesian, the same publishers who made Bubble Bath Babes and Hot Slots, which are two more pornographic games you will see lower on this list.

Bubble Bath Babes

Bubble Bath Babes Nintendo PricesNew Price: NA Used Price: $725
Bubble Bath Babes is an adult version of Tetris with bubbles. You arrange bubbles of similar colors so they are touching and they disappear. The game was produced in very limited quantities and were sold in VHS style boxes instead of the usual NES game box. Very few of these ever sold because it was only sold through Video stores, and not game stores.

Cheetahmen II

Cheetahmen II NES PricesNew Price: $870 Used Price: $650
Cheetahmen II is a sequel that was never officially released. It was completed by it's developer but never sold. In 1997 all 1,500 of the games were found in a warehouse and sold in the secondary market. The game has so many bugs that it considered almost unplayable. In-spite of its poor quality it will still fetch more than $600 on a regular basis.

Hot Slots

Hot Slots Nintendo PricesNew Price: NA Used Price: $550
Hot Slots has you play a slot machine on the NES but at certain times during the game pixelated woman without much on will show up on the screen to say something. The game was only sold through mail-order to video stores and for obvious reasons was never licensed by Nintendo for the NES.

Mr. Gimmick

Mr. Gimmick PricesNew Price: NA Used Price: $200
Mr. Gimmick was came out in Japan as Gimmick and Europe as Mr. Gimmick. The European version is the rarer of the two. The game plays like a traditional platformer but is notoriously difficult.

Flintstones Surprise at Dino Peak

Flintstones Surprise Dino Peak PricesNew Price: NA Used Price: $170
Surprise at Dino Peak was the second Flintstones game for the NES but it came out three years after the Super Nintendo released. Most gamers had moved away from the original Nintendo so the game sold poorly, which makes it quite rare today.

Devil World

Devil World NES PricesNew Price: NA Used Price: $150
Devil World was designed by Shigeru Miyamoto and published by Nintendo, but is still a rare game. Devil World plays very similarly to PacMan but depicted the Devil and other religious symbols. Because of this Nintendo never released the game in North America, which makes it the only game designed by Miyamoto that didn't come out in the USA.

Anyone know how rare/valuable the miracle keyboard with game and manual is worth?

Christian bonner said...

the Tengen version...with all those controllers with 100 games, emulators and tetris being everywhere, having the game instead of the specific version probably made people ignore it, along with ignorance to it existing. if it weren't for egm, I wouldn't have known of it, I thought it was by Nintendo.

Christian bonner said...

Egm also let me find out...I mean, who'd have thought castlevania 3 almost didn't get here. I finally found gradius 2,would love to find a cartridge smb2japan, might have to fam disc..

Mr. Gimmick doesn't really play like a traditional platformer, actually. It's based around a star throwing mechanic that can be used in a lot of interesting ways.
