Exactly what it says on the tin. A thread for variations of the Game & Watch games that weren't released for promotional reasons.

These include the CGL variants, the Mego Corp variants, etc. As far as I know, these variants aren't as well documented as the promotional variants, so hopefully this thread can allieviate that a bit.

Hi

Thanks. A couple of weeks ago I have started to extend the FAQ section to add CGL, Mego etc. I hope to have it ready soon.

If these two eBay listings are to be believed, there appear to be at least two CGL variants of MW-56; one with what appears to be a sticker with the CGL logo on it, and another with the CGL logo printed directly onto the game. The boxes are the same for both variants.


MW-56 CGL Sticker Variant


MW-56 CGL Printed Variant

There are other CGL variants that I should probably add soon, but for now, here's a couple of them. Any theories on why there are two different CGL variants of the same game?

I suppose it is the same as for tricOtronic: First they (distributor I guess) stamped the logo onto the games, later on they used stickers because it is cheaper. Just a thought....

Probably.

In other news, I just found a variant of Fire with a Futuretronics logo on it. Is this a promo or a regular release?

It's a regular release. Game&Watch having the FT logo were released in Australia.
