Yeah On the ball is cameltry - this is the game https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2QC2AJp2X9k

No idea where the cameltry name idea came from but hey ho.

One for sale on ebay here just like mine but the box to mine is in better condition: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SNES-ON-THE-B ... 3ca80bc2ed

Paid £3 each from a secondhand shop for starwing and on the ball - got 2 nice bargains there methinks.

I got the superscope with a number of other items. Really just a novelty item more than anything.

Thanks for the feedback.

Fairly recently bought my mates SNES collection of him along with quite a lot else. SNES stuff all (CIB) included:
Big Box Super Metroid with Players Guide
Zelda with everything
Super Double Dragon
Mega Man X
UN Squadron
MK 2
Super Punch Out
Super Parodius

Also have Castlevania 4, SF2 World Warrior, Mario World and All Stars carts only

Looking for more but very difficult to get at anything like reasonable prices at the moment on Ebay so it's on hold for the time being unless I see a steal in a charity shop or carboot which seems rather unlikely.

Used to have a nice little collection years ago which included DKC Trilogy, Castlevania & Vampires Kiss, Secret of Mana and Evermore, Bomberman 1-3... but I sold them all :(

Yes, they are great, I have been waiting for them to come down in price but they keep going up at the moment. I got lucky with them on ebay as they had been listed badly with bad spelling so got them a lot cheaper than normal.

How much did you get them for in the end then?

Jesus... part of me is glad I just got a lot of these brand new back in the day, I think they were effectively LESS expensive!

Two of my favourite games that I only have cart for. Gave up a long while ago on ever thinking that I would have complete copies.

Skimmed back through this whole thread. Amazing to see my resolve cave and spent a tidy sum on the system. Amazing to see other people's awesome collections and wonder if they still have them. Astaroth seemed to vanish from here too.

What is even madder is the conversations that SNES prices were 'a bit high' in 2011 and now that are practically in space!

This thread, started after a big nostalgia high, has given me a nostalgia high! :mrgreen:

Well, it's been a few years (6!) and I've managed to collect most of these. Still need to find a copy of Earthbound and Indiana Jones.
