      Here's the fascinating part.  He had exactly ONE game.  That's it.  Never bought any others.  Mario Bros/Duck Hunt.  My friend kept it all these years, shared it with his kids, and only had one game.  Granted, it is a great game.  I am not poking fun or anything like that, I just find it to be so interesting. 

      I think because of that, the NES is in pristine condition.  It does not need the pin comb cleaned or replaced (the carts go in and come out easily), like-new controllers, etc.  I'm just going to wipe everything down to get the dust off and make this my main NES rig (I've been using a retron 3).

      Just one part was missing, and that was the power adapter.  I had an extra, so no problem there.  The ultimate dad-move -- keep a box of miscellaneous power adapters in the garage for an occasion like this.
