My first ever one was Donkey Kong Jr when I was 7. I initially struggled for a few days to get that little fella to open the cage until I accidentally pushed the up and left button at the same time. After that it was game-on (bad pun) and it wasn’t much longer until I clocked the game (one of the most satisfying moments of my young life).
Now as an adult I still like to play them and have a small collection that I have purchased over the years. They are still available second hand but now cost a small fortune (see eBay).
Recently I came across these very cute replicas of 3 of the most popular G&W’s. At first I thought they actually played and started to pull my credit card out my wallet until I looked closer and discovered that they are solar powered and only show some moving graphics.
Still pretty damn cool though.
I did purchase one (Chef – one of the rarest G&W’s) and as soon as it arrived I knew I had to make a belt buckle out of it.
So here’s my G&W Belt Buckle - Enjoy.
Step 1: Gather Your Parts
Belt - eBay
Game and Watch game - Tototek
Something sharp to scratch the belt buckle with like a screwdriver
Araldite glue or some other strong glue
Step 2: Gluing Stuff Together
1. Use something sharp like a screwdriver and scratch the surface of the belt. This will help the glue stick better.
2. Add some strong glue and stick on the G&W. Try and position it so it is level with the top of the buckle and straight.
3. Leave to dry for 24 hours.
Step 3: Done!
Go put your belt on, stand under a light and show the world that you won the coolest belt in the world.
