Before there were streaming services, before there were all-in-one media boxes, a video game console had one purpose. And when you got one for your birthday, you flipped out like the meaning of your entire existence on planet Earth had completely changed.
That momentous birthday seems shrouded in the mists of time. Your library of obsolete video games is the only reminder of those halcyon days when a sore and calloused thumb was a badge of honor.
Today's game systems are undeniably cool, but sometimes you just want to play - No menus, no movies, no fluff.
It's time to give your game collection new life. Muscle memory kicks in as you power through the classics on a Retro-Bit NES console. You remember the laser-like focus required to smash the backboard in NBA Jam. There's an entire section of your brain dedicated specifically to Street Fighter 2 combos. And you can thread the needle in Gradius better than Luke Skywalker barreling down the Death Star trench.
A suite of sweets courses through your veins, mana from a lost age, endowing you with inhuman energy and endurance as you recondition your once-dominating reflexes. Revel once again in your accomplishments as you best the most unforgiving 8-bit games.
In a sealed wooden crate with a laser-etched crowbar. No bow, no ribbons, no fluff, and absolutely no instructions.

my boyfriend was convinced that I was just making him open box for the fun of it hahah! took him 10 minutes, at least to open the man crate! once we got it opened, he was SO excited to play, but when we plugged everything into our TV, nothing happened. The screen went crazy, and the games never showed.....kinda disappointed because this was my first birthday gift to him ever, and even I couldn't wait to let him open it. (his birthday is the 16th, we opened it on the 9th).....

First off my husband enjoyed his gifts, a big hit. So there are a few things that were a little off. I scheduled the crate to arrive on Monday but it came the Saturday before so he had to wait to open it all weekend and it ruined the surprise since he knew it was a man crate for his birthday. No big deal at least it came before his bday. The other thing is the game that came with it, Platoon, it did not work and got stuck in the system. Husband was able to remove it without breaking the system. Lucky for him he had other games to play with his system (previous bought from somewhere else). Overall it was awesome to watch him open which took him over 3 minutes ;)!!!

Bought my son who is in college the retro gaming crate. He loved it and was so surprised. The best part was watching the video of him trying to open it, lol Thank you sooo much. You guys and gals Rock. I will definitely order again. Thank you so much for helping my son have an awesome birthday. I can't say enough about how easy it was to order and it was delivered on time. You have a customer for life.

That's an exact quote from my extremely pleased boyfriend... well, minus the censored expletive. I knew I wanted to have something delivered to his job this year but you can't send a MAN flowers and I've done the whole beer-gram thing. Luckily I found mancrates.com. I spent a total of 10 minutes looking through the options before settling on the retro gamer crate (he's huge into video games). Couple clicks and it was all set up to arrive today. He loves the candy and is so excited to play his NES games. He received Indiana Jones temple of doom and RBI baseball. He's already looking to buy other games for the console and he hasn't even gotten a chance to play the thing. We're both very impressed by the gift and I'm so happy I stumbled on to your site. Thank you so much mancrates.com crew!

This gift was awesome! I ordered this for my husband's birthday. He came early or perfectly on time. The struggle was real to watch him open it! Absolutely loved it! Candy was cool. The games were good. The most fun...... again was watching him struggle to get in that ManCrate...... Who's the awesome wife........#Sharona

so, we had some fun opening the crate, games where alright, although i wouldn't consider them classics. But once we got the console working we and put the game in the whole screen goes haywire, we pull the game out gently and the whole circuit board pulls out with it.

I received this Mancrate as a Christmas gift from my wife and absolutely loved it. Everything from opening the crate to exploring the contents was such a fun/cool concept. I had a small issue a few months later and the phone support was extremely helpful. They've definitely clinched me as a repeat customer.

I bought my husband this gift for Christmas. I loved the crate especially, because he is always breaking things around the house because "he does not know his own strength". It was hilarious watching him try to break into this crate! He loved the gaming system and the candy! Even though I was unfamiliar with the games that came with it he loved them both. He has since bought more games to go with the system. He's the envy of his friends and they think that I'm the coolest wife ever! Winner!!

I order this Retro Gamer Man Crate for my boyfriend's 29th birthday and he absolutely loved it! From how it came in a wooden crate (on his birthday), right down to what was inside. The mystery of what could be in the man crate was really intriguing to him as he never heard of one before and he was utterly shocked and pleasantly surprised when he opened it to find something he loves like that. He was thrilled about getting the Retro Bit NES console to use for his games. He is becoming a retro video game collector so this was especially awesome for him! & He didn't have either of the games that were given and one in particular he said was especially rare!!! So GREAT all around! Thanks guys!

I bought the retro gamer for my grown son and he loved it. It had games that he played as a kid and candy that he grew up with. What a fun and unusual gift.
