    Not familiar with Moscow per se, but I would assume like St.Pb you can get them at an универмаг or дворь. A word of caution: I bought a couple and they worked ok, but they don't use the same batteries on the cartridges as the genuine versions do (and they are ALL fake -- even the one I bought at ДЛТ). So what will happen is at some point you will lose all your saved data and not be able to save/load games -- but it will continue to work. Also, in addition to finding some carts that don't actually exist (the legendary 99 GAMES IN 1, etc.), you'll find some games that aren't actually what they claim to be. Thus, sadly, I ended up with some old school Mario games as opposed to SMA:3. I also, lol, ended up with some homemade Russian "how to drive a car" game.
    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.

    I was about to say no way in hell, but then I remembered that there was a new shopping mall at Sadovaya that opened up just when I left. They had a store that was similar to Gamestop/Babbages/Software Etc./whatever that had movies, cds and games -- it wasn't 505 or Playland, but something different. They SEEMED to be very "western" in style (the spitting image of the stores I just mentioned) -- not to mention prices. So I'm assuming they DID import legitimate stuff. But like I said, it was full western prices it seems to me (and I don't remember, really, what the systems for gaming were -- I want to say PC and PS2 and MAYBE GC, but I'm not sure).
