Hello and Good Pi
The inevitable machine uprising has been a long time in the making. In the ‘50s, a home computer took up a literal home and struggled to solve basic math problems without scratch paper. By 1987, a computer had defeated the World Chess Champion. Sure, they were only playing Tic Tac Toe, but we still find the development disturbing.
It’s time to take matters into our own hands. With the Raspberry Pi Retro Gaming Kit, he’ll finely hone the skills necessary to override our computer overlords and exploit their power to aid the forces of good. Namely, relaxing in some PJs and watching colorful pixels dart around a television screen. The past has never looked so good.
What’s in a Game?
The first step to defeating any enemy is understanding what you’re up against. The Raspberry Pi is a fully fledged computer small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, but powerful enough to pilot a super villain’s giant death-robot.
Or play old arcade games. It can also play arcade games.
We’ve written a full-color, comprehensive instruction booklet detailing how to build his new pocket computer, and harness its incredible power to scratch that retro gaming itch. And definitely not to take over the world.
This kit includes a stylish case for the Pi, a microSD card for game storage, and a classic NES style controller for maximum 8-bit nostalgia. Because you know what they say, “Keep your friends close, and your enemies tucked away neatly inside your entertainment center.”
The Raspberry Pi Retro Gaming Kit contains everything he’ll need to defeat the final boss and take his gaming to the next level.

This was my 30th Wedding Anniversary present
For 30 years, I got my wife a Tahitian Pearl pendant and necklace.
Knowing that she'd want to buy me something, and also knowing that she can have a tough time picking something out, I suggested "Anything" from mancrates.com. On the site, she searched for nerd and found this kit. Sweeeeet! It is great! I love it, and she feels like she purchased something special,...well, at least for a nerd. She also got me one of the Jerky kits! For my 50th, I want the whole lot. ha!
