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.

Makeshift Time Machine

  • Retro-Bit NES Console
  • 2 classic Nintendo games
  • (randomly selected from an assortment of time-honored, awesome games)

      Coolest Present Ever

      I sent the Retro Gamer Kit to my friend and received this text, "Ok, just opened up basically the coolest present I can remember getting in years, thank you so much!" He said opening it was half the fun and can't wait to head to a pawn shop to find some more old NES games to play on his new console.

      Thanks for putting this gift together because it makes sending a gift to an old-school-gamer-punk-rock-dude a lot easier. I don't really think he would have liked a bouquet of flowers.

      Brother's Bday

      I got this as a bday present for my brother who loves retro candy and video games and he loved it. I was hesitant after reading reviews of late boxes with broken games inside, or two of the same game, but everything was in tact and timely. He loved opening the box, even though he had never used a crowbar before HAHA. That made the gift even funnier. I would definitely send another mancrate.

      Big Hit

      A friend of mine showed me ManCrates and I absolutely loved the idea as soon as I visited the site. My boyfriend's birthday was coming up and I wanted to "think outside the box" for this year and this was a huge hit. He had no idea what to think of the crate and crowbar at first and then he was like a kid trying to pry it open. The NES, games and candy were things he never would have thought of getting. Although one of the games did not work when it arrived, ManCrates was willing to send a replacement game without all the frustration most places give customers. Thank you for coming up with a manly gift basket men will not be embarrassed to receive!

      super cool girlfirend award

      Got this crate as a late valentines early anniversary present for my boyfriend....he loves it!...He set it up and started playing right away...even whet online to find more games!...Will definitely be ordering from man crates again.

      Got this as a gift for my nerdy husband. He absolutely loved it, and prying it open was worth a ton of laughs and of course a video taping. Will for sure be ordering more from this site! I just wish there was a "women crate" of sorts.

      I was so so so excited about getting this for my fiancés birthday because we are both really into playing the retro games. But once he finally opened it, I was very disappointed. The first game didn't work when we tried it and the second game we have never even heard of and wasn't that great to play. Definitely a waste of $100 and will probably never buy from Man Crate again due to the risk of it not being worth it once it gets here.

      Hey Dani,

      Sorry to hear about your games! I've tried to look your order up in our records and am not having any luck finding it. If you see this, please give us a call at 866-902-7260 or email us at, and we will make this right for you as best we can.

      Excellent Gift!

      I purchased the Retro Gamer ManCrate for my son's 31st birthday gift! I have to say, it was an excellent gift. He was super excited and I maintained my "Best Mom Ever" status!!!
      The product was exactly as described, shipped very quickly, arrived on the day promised and was packaged as per the description. My son was blown away that his gift came in an actual crate with a crowbar! I would highly recommend Mancrates and am planning to be a repeat customer; we have four sons.

      My husband loved this gift, it arrived promptly and he was able to open it first thing on Valentines day, where as what he got me didn't arrive until 5pm! Maybe he should have gotten me a Mancrate! I plan on purchasing another, for myself!!! :)

      Great people, great service, great product!

      It is my husbands birthday and he just opened up his crate! It was a gift that really surprised him in a good way. Unfortunately when we received it one of the 2 games was unable to play. Within minutes Will from the website helped us get a new game to replace the old one. Great people, great service, great product!

      Birthday Gift

      I ordered the Retro gamer for my husband for his birthday. I wanted to take him back to his childhood. It was definitely a great gift idea, He loved it!! He loved the concept of opening the gift with a crow bar. It took him a while, but when He finally got it open he was amazed at what he saw. He immediately hooked it up and began to play. He also started shopping online for more games. I would definitely order from man crates again!
