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 (Man Crates approved!)
  • 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. Perfect gift for a long-time Nintendo fan :)

    Posted by April on 04/15/2014 ( Retro Gamer Crate 5 stars)

    I recently purchased this Man Crate for my husband's 32nd birthday. He is a long-time Nintendo fan and this nostalgic gift was a pleasant and appreciated surprise! I wasn't able to choose what games came with it, which was fine, because now that we have the platform to play it on, acquiring other games will be much easier!

  2. Retro Gamer Crate

    I am deployed in a different country then my boyfriend, but wanted to get him something special- he loved this! The packaging alone was awesome enough, but he was blown away. Everything was in great condition. Won a lot of girlfriend points for this one. :)

  3. Great Gift

    Boyfriend loved it

  4. Awesomeness!!

    Posted by Kimberly on 04/4/2014 ( Retro Gamer Crate 5 stars)

    Thank you guys so much for the great idea!! My boyfriend absolutely loved the gift. I heard about you through another friend, and I want to spread the word....However, I plan on giving these as gifts to many people in the near future! And I don't want to ruin the surprise.

    Great concept! You guys are really onto something here! It was a blast watching him open it with his crowbar. He even grabbed a hammer...How manly!!

  5. Soooo way too cool!!!

    Posted by Terri McGraw on 04/1/2014 ( Retro Gamer Crate 5 stars)

    Was a definite hit (his words) for my son who turned 31 today. His 3-year-old son HAD to help him open it then proceeded to start eating HIS candy. He can't wait to hook up the NES. He hasn't talked about a gift I have given him in so long I can't remember. Just seeing this brought back so many memories, I had to get it. Y'all are geniuses!! I really don't like to write reviews but I just had to. I got my boyfriend the golf crate for Valentine's Day and it was AWESOME also!!! Hell, as long as y'all come up with all these ideas, I won't ever have to worry about what to get my guys!!

  6. Awesomeness!!

  8. This is awesome and he LOVED it!!!

    Posted by Kristen on 03/20/2014 ( Retro Gamer Crate 5 stars)

    I got this for my boyfriend and he absolutely LOVED it!!! I have never seen him as excited as he was when he opened this up. He was even more excited that he got wrestlemania because he loved that game when he was a kid! These are so neat and I am sure he will get another one in the future!! I have also recommended your site to a ton of other people already, and so has he. Guys are so hard to buy for sometimes, and your site totally makes it easy! You guys rock!!

  9. Perfect "manly" groomsmen's gift

    Posted by Tammie on 03/14/2014 ( Retro Gamer Crate 5 stars)

    For months I searched the net looking for a unique, different Groomsmen gift but nothing fit the bill. Out of sheer frustration I decided to Google "manly gifts" and WHAM! there it was the answer to my solution. I ordered 3 different crates, shipping was fast and I reside in Canada. The crates won't be opened until June and the suspense is killing us !!
    So far so good, would definitely order again.

  10. Best.Gift.Ever

    Posted by nickie budai on 03/11/2014 ( Retro Gamer Crate 5 stars)

    I wanted to get a gift for my fiance, who is a gamer, and I randomly came across this website, then I found this box. By far the best gift I have ever bought. He was super excited and the way it was packaged wasn't only cool and MANLY but actually really funny. This gift is perfect not only for him but for me, because now I can really enjoy his hobby as well, because this takes me back to my childhood. I couldn't be happier. Thank you!

  11. Awesome!

    Posted by Tiffany on 03/6/2014 ( Retro Gamer Crate 5 stars)

    My boyfriend has BOXES of games, and purchased 3 game systems on ebay, but none of them would work. He was SO excited when he opened this crate to see that he could play his games. Not only does he love them, but he LOVES playing them with our 3 year old son. I was upset that I did not get the duct tape wrapping like I requested, but customer service was very fast at responding to me, and put the money bacnk into my account from the wrapping. I will be purchasing more man crates. Awesome gifts!

  12. Perfect gift

    Posted by Tori on 02/27/2014 ( Retro Gamer Crate 5 stars)

    My husband absolutely loved his Valentine's present. Although the package arrived three days late (through no fault of Man Crates, because they got the package into the mail on time), he thought the crate itself was a very cool novelty item, and once he saw the gaming system inside, he was even more excited. (Our cats love the crate, too, by the way. Perfect size for kitty tushies).

    He received Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (which he remembered playing as a child on his original system) and Captain Skyhawk. We immediately hooked up the system to our spare TV and tried out the games. He was like a kid in a candy store (both figuratively and literally, thanks to the collection of treats included).

    10/10, would recommend to nostalgic gaming friends.
