Press Start to Begin

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 Winner is You

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.


  • Retro-Bit NES Console
  • Two classic Nintendo game selections
    (crates are pre-sealed and assortment varies)
  • Red Vines
  • Bottle Caps
  • Mike & Ike
  • Nerds
  • Now and Later
  • Jaw Busters
  • Pop Rocks
  • Pez
  • In a sealed wooden crate with a laser-etched crowbar, without bows, ribbons or fluff.

  1. Great gift for military :)

    Posted by Amber on 09/15/2014 ( Retro Gamer Crate 5 stars)

    I recently purchased this for my husband who is currently deployed as a welcome home gift. I sent him a photo of the crate the day it arrived. He is super excited. He loves playing video games so I know he will love this! (he has no idea what's inside lol)

  2. Perfect Gift

    Posted by Heidi on 09/12/2014 ( Retro Gamer Crate 5 stars)

    I ordered the Retro Gamer Crate for my husband as an anniversary surprise. He absolutely loved it! All the guys in his office crowded around as he opened it. There was a slight delay in customs but James in customer service was awesome to deal with and was very accommodating. I will totally be ordering another Man Crate again!

  3. This was perfect GIFT for my ADULT Son!!!

    Posted by Joni on 09/12/2014 ( Retro Gamer Crate 5 stars)

    I saw this crate and knew instantly this was the perfect thing to send to my 27 yr old SON, who know lives almost 2,000 miles away from me ( I raised him & his lil sis as a single M.A.D. aka MomAnd Dad) He SKYPED me & asked if I had sent him something....( I sent it a week early for extra surprise factor) he wasn't sure what to think of it at first. Bawwhhaaa "MOM" got him this time. Anyway I got to see him open it via SKYPE and it was funny as hell to watch. Made all of us laugh and made another unforgettable FAMILY story to tell. Thank you to MAN CRATES!!!! I will be sending more crates to HIM and even to other MEN in the family.

    Got this for my fiance's 34th birthday. He loves it! Set it up immediately after opening it. PERFECT present for a gamer! System and games worked great! Wish we could have picked the games we got - but it was actually kind of fun playing old school games we hadn't heard of... now on the hunt for more NES games!

    I would recommend ANY of the Man Crates for ANY man in your life!

  6. Awesome Product

    Posted by Rachel Lehmann on 08/26/2014 ( Retro Gamer Crate 5 stars)

    My husband loved this crate! He immediately set it up so he could play and went to get all his old NES games. Works great and got here fast!

  7. Great customer service!

    Posted by Robert Reynolds on 08/14/2014 ( Retro Gamer Crate 5 stars)

    Had a problem with a faulty NES system. My fiancé called and the problem was taken care of immediately. A hint: clean the contacts on any retro game carts they send you, with a q-tip and rubbing alcohol. It fixed issues with both carts not working. I love these guys and I love getting a man crate for my birthday. My girl will keep buying them for me I'm sure.

  8. "AWESOME"

    Posted by Sheila Carter on 08/14/2014 ( Retro Gamer Crate 5 stars)

    I bought this crate as a birthday gift for my game loving fiance!It arrived quickly and he loved it!!! However when we tried to hook it up and use it,we realized it didn't work.I sent an email to customer service and before i knew it I got a response apologizing and informing me they would replaced the faulty system....(and they added a bonus bag of beef jerky for the trouble) two days after i emailed them we got the replacement!! Talk about great customer service!! I love the man crates just as much as my fiance.....can't wait to buy the next one!

  9. Great gift for the big nerd/gamer that I love!!

    Posted by Dawn S on 07/29/2014 ( Retro Gamer Crate 5 stars)

    I got this crate for my boyfriend, that happens to be a BIG gamer. He has every system that you can imagine, so I just knew he would love getting this for his birthday today! And boy was I right! When it came in all wrapped I duck tape lol, I thought that was hilarious. Then after him getting through that and getting into the actual crate and then seeing what was inside! His eyes just lit up and got BIG! I have lots of MEN in my family that will be getting crates for birthdays, Christmas, and any other occasions I can think of. Thank you for making it such a great birthday for the man that I love and appreciate so much!

  10. "...coolest gift ever"

    Posted by Megan on 07/25/2014 ( Retro Gamer Crate 5 stars)

    I bought this for my husband for our 4th anniversary. Once he had it all opened and laid out he said "this is probably the coolest gift ever!" The kid in him came to life in an instant! He was playing DinoKing with our 2 year old within minutes of opening the crate. I am not sure I will be able to top this gift! Thanks Man Crates!!!!

  12. fathers day gift

    Posted by sha on 06/23/2014 ( Retro Gamer Crate 4 stars)

    gift was great. my husband is enjoying his new toy.
    Shipping was an issue for me. I ordered it early and selected an arrival date but man crates forgot to send it so I didn’t get it till Tuesday after father’s day. I was refunded the shipping cost but i still would have liked to get my gift when it was promised
