PopQuizzical Daily! for April 5, 2013:
In 2011, Epic Burgers and Waffles introduced their new cheeseburger at the Canadian National Exhibition. What did they replace the buns with in this burger?
Nintendo Campus Challenge.
In 1991 and 1992, Nintendo went around to college campuses promoting the SNES with a game called Nintendo Campus Challenge. It was a minigame cartridge with a Super Mario level, a Pin*Bot level, and a Dr. Mario level. After the tour/competition was finished, Nintendo destroyed all the cartidges except one, which was found aand purchased at a garage sale. It has been sold on eBay a couple of times, the most recent time in 2009 for $20,100. That’s a lot of gold coins, even for Mario.
