    I hate to break it to you but this is a bootleg. (Going by your image.)

    That or it's a reproduction of the original. Under 10 real copy's are known to exist.

    I always had a thing for bootlegs and hacks, but I guess the strangest game I own must be Picachu, a hack of a SNES game which is crap in every possible way. As for consoles, it has to be my japanese PC engine (modded to output composite video).

    Real significant difference with the box art and quality. Definitely a repro.

    This Pikachu rom hack is really common here in Brazil.
    It's even possible to find one with a box.

    This one with the box goes for US$11. Just the cart goes for US$5.

    Nice to see one in decent condition, I found mine at a flea market here in Uruguay and never heard about it again.

    They are/were very popular here in Brazil. I can easily get one if I want on MercadoLivre.
    I think I played it when I was a child in a friend's house maybe. I recall it not being very good.

    I don't have a pic of it at the moment but the rarest thing I own is the limited edition Pikachu GBA:SP complete in box. I know it's not super duper rare but it is pretty cool and I love it. I HAD a boxed copy of Earthbound but unfortunately it got stolen during a break in a few years ago.

    i'm not much of a collector (you can thank my minimum wage job for that) so my items aren't very rare as opposed to just having some major sentimental value.

    i managed to snag the sh3 ost from a local gamestop shortly after buying the game itself. my game cd was busted so they gave it to me as an apology. sh was my favorite game series so it was a big deal to me.
    i also have a copy of the first drakengard game for ps2. not really rare, more obscure really, but it was a pain to find when i was a young kid who could only hop from store to store and hope that one was there at the same time as i was.
    unfortunately most of my games were lost in between moves.

    other than that? well, i have this strange street fighter gift set "for him". comes with cologne, a keychain, a wallet, a body wash and a deck of playing cards. for the man who needs all of these random things on his person at once.
    my only other stroke of luck was managing to pull a jace, mind sculptor from a worldwake fatpack back when my bro and i still played m:tg. it was the last one in stock at wal-mart (since the set had just rotated out) and we decided to take a gamble.

    I own a pretty rare book by Leo Tolstoy. It's quite rare, but it's not a game :(

    Anyone want to start the Hyperdimension Neptunia Rebirth 1 run and figure out how many Amazon actually damaged when they shipped em out? I can account for at least two of them. Mine was an Ebay scalp as my page did not refresh fast enough. Though my buddy was lucky enough to have his come predamaged by Amazon. They did offer him a $60 refund though, lol
