    *-*-*-*-*
    
    This FAQ is about the mini games inside of the Power 
    Stone game for Dreamcast. Power Stone is an awesome 
    game which was followed by a sequel that lived to it's
    pride. The games were very enjoyable, but sometimes
    frustating. This is a wonderful collection of games,
    and entertaining. Hope you have a some good batteries
    and an official VMU. Enjoy!
    
    *-*-*-*-*-*-*

    - Official Sega Visual Memory Unit (with LCD screen and Battery Life)
    - 128 Free Blocks and no other games in VMU
    - Controller
    - Power Stone Video Game

    go to page Six, Seven and Eight. But first, 
    you must beat Arcade Mode 7 (seven) times to
    unlock all the games. Simply press "A" amd download
    them. All three games will save as one game on

    and press the "Mode" button to get to the two
    cards with spades. Push "A" and select it and
    press "A"+"B" when it prompts you to do so.

    medals without putting others on

    hit the ninjas but it is the one that
    shines the brightest. This game is
    practically target practice on Ninjas.
