Loyal Nintendo fans can now get their hands on the original Game & Watch title, Game & Watch: Ball via Club Nintendo for 1,200 coins. You can earn coins by registering on the Club Nintendo site, taking surveys and registering your Nintendo hardware and software. It's one of the most expensive prizes on the site, points wise. But there are lots of other neat collectibles you can get if you don't have a ton of coins.
The goal of Ball is to juggle a series of balls by coordinating your LCD avatar's left and right hands. When you're not honing your juggling skills, the device also serves as a handy watch (hence the name Game & Watch.)
The game is hardly exciting, but it's still a nifty piece of history that Nintendo's dishing out.
