Have you ever woken up after an evening of questionable decisions and wrestled with what to do with the day? I have.

Guide: Where you can import amiibo, and where you can find rares

Unless my Meta Knight pre-order is screwed up by Best Buy, I'll have every existing amiibo on-hand by next week.

But there are a lot of ways to procure them. Here are a few that will allow you to sidestep scalpers on eBay.   more
