Here’s a clever idea. dsbuttons.com sells buttons of popular Nintendo DS games. Alot of DS users carry around their console everywhere. So why not wear buttons of the games you have with you? That way people can tell when there’s a fellow gamer in their midst and they can start up a match.
Personally, I have no plans on buying the buttons. You have to buy a set of 6. I only own two games… one of which is not available (Clubhouse Games). I’d consider buying a Clubhouse Games button for $2 just cuz the illustration style on the buttons is sharp. Plus, my DS doesn’t really leave my house. Maybe if I go to my local public library I could find some fellow DS gamers. There’s alotta high schoolers running around there. I could school them in Clubhouse Games Bowling. I am the Turkey King (3 strikes in a row).
I see these buttons being a big hit with kids in grade school, high school, and college. It’s easy to set up games in a cafeteria or a common hall. Plus the illustrations on the buttons are fun, trendy, and have a clean, sharp design.
