Rebuilding the Game Room

I took apart the crappy looking stand I built and will just go with these stands that I have found at Menards. The one I am using in these pictures are a stand I found for about $5 at a church sale.

As you can see in the pictures the pocket openings are not large enough to be able to put all the systems in them so as I buy more of these I will be doing some modifications to them which will allow them to be more usable for our needs as gamers.

Remaining Games: Nintendo Game Boy

In January I sold a bunch of my games to help pay for a funeral for my Grandma. I am slowly sorting all my games and updating my catalog of owned games to match what I still currently have and then to also make lists of what I need to rebuy.

I have to say these shockbox cases are amazing, but damn they are huge. The inserts are great quality and I am going to order all the inserts for these systems from them as I buy games.
