Breaking news…. Gameboy games can survive a trip through the washer (and dryer).
Over the weekend, Son #3 wanted to bring some extra Gameboy games when we went out for the day. Thus, he tucked them in one of the big pockets in my carpenter shorts. I knew this wasn’t a good idea, but I made a mental note not to forget they were in there. Guess what? I forgot. Last night when I came home from work, he was lamenting that he couldn’t find his Pokemon Mystery Red Dungeon Rescue Team cartridge. Remembering what had transpired, my heart sank.
Sure enough, both his Pokemon cartridge and his Matchbox Missions cartridge had gone through the wash. And Pokemon also went through the dryer… The horror!
The good news from all of this is that neither game is any worse for the wear. To be honest, I’m surprised that it took this long for us to discover that Gameboy games are waterproof.
