NES Cartridge Art Giveaway- 2 Different Cartridge Designs Up for Grabs!


So far everyone seems to have specified which cart they prefer first and followed the other rules. Thanks for reading, folks, and hopefully with everyone's interest and help I can convince 72pins' team to donate carts in the future.

However, just thought of this: let's hit some milestones. I'm currently at about 150 entries. Let's hit 250 by Wednesday and I'll include a super secret related prize with each cart. If we hit more than 250, I'll have to come up with something even better than what I'm planning. I dare ya to make me spend more money, People!

/I'm going to regret this so much

D'oh! Seems like I forgot to include the tumblr and twitter entries for 72Pins! That puts us at around 300 entries already. I'm going to have to raise the bar to 375 because we need solid goals!


Hello, everyone. I have one of each design pictured above from the awesome 72Pins.com (1 Shadow of the Colossus NES, 1 Halo NES).  These cartridge designs are almost entirely for display purposes only, as the games underneath them are not changed to be based on the games of the same name, so please be aware of that. Here's how to enter (You can get multiple entries by doing more than one listed method). Please post your order of preference if you happen to win as well. :)
