When you head to a big-name game retailer, you expect to get the item you purchase. For example, when you buy Pokemon Sword and Shield, you're thinking you'll open up the box and find the game card inside. For Reddit user Au_rai, things were a bit different. He opened up his copy of Pokemon Shield to find...two copies of the game! As far as being surprised by what's in a game box, this is definitely very high on the positive end of things!
Unfortunately for Redditor SHADOWSTRIKE1, his situation was a bit different. He bought a copy of Super Mario Party from Walmart, and found weird bits of foam inside the box. Unfortunately, it looks like people are still pulling the trick of buying a game, returning it without the game inside, and making off with the game free of charge.
Moving into the holiday season, you're probably going to be picking up multiple games for yourself or others. Make sure to grab a gift receipt to avoid any issues like the Super Mario Party one above! If the game is for you, pop the box open at the store before you leave!
