Itty-Bitty DOS Game Canvases: Bazaar of the Bizarre 2018 Edition

Once again we come together for my favourite holiday market in Toronto.

Every winter the Bazaar of the Bizarre sets up shop at Pia Bouman School of Ballet (6 Noble St., Toronto).

With three rooms packed with dozens of exhibitors, there is something for everyone!

Bazaar of the Bizarre Frostbite 2018 Saturday December 15th

Like the past couple years, I’ll be filling the niche of gift shopping for your smart-ass geeky friend who knows everything and wants nothing.

Tough crowd.

The itty-bitty DOS game canvases are the perfect intersection of cute & retro nostalgia for everyone from casual gamers to the computing pioneers that designed your PCB and chipsets.

How many of these canvases do you recognize?

Check out my instagram page to see closeups of each one and read commentary on the history of each game.

Come find me this Saturday at the Bazaar and pick up your favourite.
