They said I was crazy. I didn't listen. I'm doing another mystery box auction just in time for the holidays! This one will be bigger and better than the last one!

You can see the results from my last mystery auction here: https://gametz.com/Console_Marketplace/summer-gami...

Here are some details for this mystery box:

- There will be at least 50 unique items...

- The mystery box with all its contents will weigh around 10 pounds...

- The focus will be primarily NES and SNES games and related items, but there just might be games and related items for other systems as well...

I'll sprinkle more clues in as the days pass.

Here are the rules:

Since my last auction ended at $30, I'll start this one at $30. Bid increments of at least $5, please.

The auction will end on Saturday, November 16th at 11:59PM. If there is more than one bid at 11:59PM on the 16th, the auction will extend to 6 more minutes ending on12:05AM of Sunday November 17th. Last recorded bid wins. This is an as-is sale.

Auction is open to anyone living in the United States, its territories or Canada.

I will pay for shipping.

Like last time, I'm hoping the winner will do an unboxing video or at the very least take some pictures of the winnings.

Winner should receive the package before Thanksgiving.

Let's get going!

I think there's some kind of rule that, if you give a riddle as a clue, you have to explain the riddle after the show is over. :)

Got me curious here.

Good to know the clues got you curious. There are probably others out there who are feeling the same way.

Once the winner does the unveiling, I'd be happy to explain the more difficult clues.

I said that because of the changing colors. It was a GBC game.

Oh I see. Gotcha.

Well, this next clue should be much easier to solve than the previous ones:

Haha, If you loved Nintendo characters as I did growing up, that's all we had when it came to video game cartoons. Throw in the DIC Mario and Sonic cartoons and Captain N, and The Power Team in there for good measure. I surprisingly remember enjoying these as a kid, but then again it was all we had. I absolutely loved seeing my favorite video game characters on an animated show no matter the quality of the show.

Now, for the next clue:

You thought it was just about that gangsta life, but in the end, you realized it was all about the song of life...

I'm too young to have caught the Super Mario Bros. Super Show in syndication, but I watched it all the time on the Yahooligans TV website back in the day.

I've decided not to bid again. It's a cool auction, but there hasn't been enough verified items for me to bid more. Next time, it'd be awesome if you revealed based on bids. Maybe you could reveal one item for every 2 bids or every $20 or something, just at random. That'd be cool. More actual reveals instead of just riddles would have piqued my interest more. Maybe I'm alone in that.

I wanted to bid on the last one and I didn't. After seeing the reveal, I was really kicking myself because it was an awesome box. Being that this one is NES and SNES based, and my collection is primarily NES stuff...I want it!

That's fine. Revealing items based on bids is an idea, but it would kill the mystique of what's in the box.

For whoever wins this thing, you will get more than your money's worth. That's all I'll say.

Here's the last clue: This man turned ape was pretty popular in the 80s and 90s. He returned in modern form, but didn't receive as much fanfare this time around...
