NES Official Guide and Sticker Album

Here’s some NES literature I found and reviewed. Nothing like buying back your childhood, especially when your childhood was as good as ours.

  1. Nice. I’ve got the Official Player’s Guide, actually; it was a gift from a friend a year or two ago. But I didn’t know it had stickers!

    And it came with some NES units? Interesting… I never knew that. I wonder which ones, I don’t think I’ve ever seen that documented anywhere.

    But the guide is awesome, I absolutely love reading it. Such a retro-blast. Not to mention, it has the Punch-Out!! story you’d never see today, where Doc was an alcoholic before meeting Mac.

    I wonder how difficult the sticker album is to get nowadays…

    I write about the Official Guide and specifically Mac’s Drinking Problem n ReaNESthetized, which is about halfway done and which I hope to finish this century.

    Where the Official Guide came from and how I got my hands on it was a mystery to me until I found this picture on eBay while I was looking for a NES: Look at the third picture down.

    It wasn’t too hard to get the Sticker Album off eBay, but it was a little harder than the Official Guide.
