I've got this Gameboy that plugs into the sewing machine and it is supposed to make embroidery patches of pictures in the game. I have the original Singer game cartridge, but I hear there's one called "Mario Family" (a Gameboy Color cart only released in Japan) that's floating around. I can't find it on ebay, amazon etc... someone's got one to sell somewhere..

Might anyone know an easier way to find one for sale on the net? I guess it's so unheard of, even google isn't showing results of it except for a couple of small wickys and oddity articles. I must have it. :(

i know the cart you are talking about, its super rare to find an official one. but iam sure if you had a blank cart you could add a ROM from the companie that make the sewing machine ;)

That's actually not a bad idea :o I at least just want to get this machine up and running (apart from the Singer Cart it came with). I can at least sew names :) I'll look into that...

But yeah, from what I've read (from really old posts) the game runs around 80-120 USD, possibly higher since 2008. I wouldn't mind paying 80 for sure, some folks are sympathetic to those who love collecting :) Hoping to find that kind of person :p It's an awesome machine.

My Many Thanks Pal :) I'm already into vinyl pressing, img transfers etc.. something as interesting as this is sure to add new zest to the upcoming store. I will order my cartridge too. I'll have to make a video for youtube later, seeing as nobody has really made any elaborate reviews/samples etc...

yeah, I'm amazed at how versatile those things were O.o
I have an old one that plugs into a printer where I can print out my pokemon, and I thought that was just about the coolest thing until I saw this :D
