The rarest game ever (or so they say) is the Nintendo Campus Challenge 1991 for the Nintendo Entertainment System. JJGames.com just sold this on eBay for $20,100. This cart was from a national tourney that took place in '91. The carts were supposed to be destroyed, but this one wasn't. It is supposed to be the only remaining one of more than 50 originals.
So what do you get for $20,100? Pieces of the games Super Mario 3, Pin-Bot, and Dr. Mario. Woo. Here's how JJGames says this works:

Is this cart even good for bragging rights?
