About The Games You Will Be Playing
Nintendo World Championship (On 5 TV's): A game created for a Nintendo video game competition in 1990. Players have 6 minutes to get 50 coins in Super Mario Bros, finish one lap in Rad Racer, and get a high score in Tetris. The competition was loosely based on the movie The Wizard.
Nintendo Campus Challenge (On 5 TV's): Another game created by Nintendo for competitions on college campuses in 1991. You have 6 minutes to get 25 coins in Super Mario 3, 100,000 points in Pin-Bot, and a high score in Dr. Mario. There is only one known copy of this game in existence so this might be your only chance to ever play this game (we will be playing on reproductions).
