How can I get the Nintendo Power calendar?

Asked by derektherock42 (191points) February 23rd, 2010

I’m kind of a rabid Nintendo fan, and I knew I had to have this calendar as soon as I saw it. The magazine said it was on “newsstands only”. So the next day, I was on an epic quest for a rad calendar.

I first went to the local Jewel Osco, where they have Nintendo Power, Rolling Stone… the works. Everything I’d ever need… except the calendar. It wasn’t there. Dang.

Next I went to Myers. Nope. Dominick’s. Nope. 7-Eleven. Nope.

Finally, I went to the Borders near me, where they have a huge newsstand with magazines of every sort. And it wasn’t there.

So, my fellow Flutherites, I pretty much give up. Does anybody know where to find this? Or what chain retailer has a good newsstand? Does this calendar even exist, or is it Nintendo Power playing a trick on me?

By the way, here’s the calendar: http://nintendopower.com/images/Cal.pdf

Just look at it. Now you see why I want this so badly, right?

@JONESGH That sounds great; unfortunately the nearest Booksamillion is very far away from me.

@derektherock42 :( I’m sorry, can you not order it off the internet?

@JONESGH I don’t think so. Nintendo Power said it’s “newsstands only” and their website doesn’t have a way to order it. I don’t want it off Ebay or something like that; I want two mint condition calendars (one to take out the stickers, etc, and one to keep mint condition forever). As dumb as that may seem, I won’t accept anything less.

Thanks for the help though! I might look for it again this weekend.

Some Blockbusters carry Nintendo power.

Googled it, apparently it’s available at many grocery stores.

Interesting, I can’t find it in my local grocery stores.

On a side-note… Holy shit, Google looks different! http://i.imgur.com/zig4T.png
