- THE FIRST
COMPLETE GAME&WATCH COLLECTION
There may be thousands of
games that are more advanced and more fun to play, but few of those have so high nostalgic
value as Nintendo's Game&Watch games.
April 28:th 1980 was the date for the first release ever of a Game&Watch game. It was
introduced by designer Gunpei Yokoi (1941-1997), and
suddenly there was a Game&Watch in almost every home.
In Scandinavia alone almost two million games were sold during 1981-1992. In Sweden
800.000 units (Source: Nintendo.se).
The games featuring Donkey
Kong and Marios Bros became huge
successes in the 80's.
As far as I know only official 59 different G&W-games have been
released by Nintendo Co. Ltd, Kyoto, in Japan.
There are 12 different categories of Game & Watch: The
first Silver-series that was
produced in 1980, then came Gold
(1981), Widescreen (1981-1982), Multiscreen (1982-1989), Tabletop (1983), Panorama (1983-1984), New Widescreen (1982-1991), Super Color (1984), Micro Vs. (1984) Crystal Screen (1986), Special (1987) and 35th anniversary (2020).
If you have any Game & Watches you want to sell or
trade, please let me
know. Please note however that nothing on my collection-list is for sale...
With best regards
