    Oh fuck, I searched the country when I was 7 for BeeBop and Rocksteady. From Halifax to Alberta. I actually found Rocksteady on Parlee beach in the sand one night when we had a cottage there. It was probably one of the best days of my life, up there with my wedding day.

    Also having to set up your cassette recorder to try to record some of the Top 40 hits to play and hoping that Casey Kasem wouldn't talk through too much of the song. :lol:

    Good old Leisure suit larry.
    lol. My friends dad didn't think we could get this game to run and left it lying around. My friend was pretty observant and figured it out when his older brother booted it up.

    I so cheated on this promotion. The scratch cards were thick enough I could split them with a knife, hold the half up to a light and see the matching symbols, then re-glue the card together and scratch. Every card was a winner. I won a Mario Bros game cartridge this way, which sucked becuase all nintendos sold with it already.

    We used to use scotch tape to peel a bit of the scratch stuff off and then hold it to the light to see the winners. Only remember winning bags of chips though

    These pop bottles, then trying every so carefully to remove/slide the label down an inch or 2 so you could pop the Styrofoam.
