One Buck Round-Up

Except for Cosmic Spacehead, everything here was just $1 each (Spacehead was $5). Not bad for a random visit to a random game store when I was out of town for a day. It always helps to Google “game stores near me” if you’re somewhere new!

Envisioned

You’re reading the only blog on Earth (at least, I’d guess so) where someone shows off their Christmas wares, and it’s a Watara Supervision. Yeah, there’s a Dreamcast game in there too, but a SUPERVISION! I’ve never seen A game let alone a lot of this size.

Plus, with this lot, there’s a new milestone: This brings me to over 5000 games owned.

We Got One! (And two and three…) 

Cleared out a Family Video of their DS games. $80 for the whole lot is a pretty good deal, especially considering a number of them still have manuals and the cases look great. Should be able to recoup the cost with the games I’m not interested in.

Madden-ing

One of my best finds of 2017.

“Uh, it’s a Madden.”

Not any Madden, but Championship Edition. This was only available to rental stores in 1992 in small numbers. The manual – although separated from the staples – is exceedingly hard to find. The local game store selling this didn’t know what they had, and it was 20% off the marked price, making it $19.99. That’s ironic since the orignal sales reciept was inside. What did they pay back then? $19.99.

3D’ohed

A small $25 game store buy. Not pictured is a box only for Wailale Golf for the SNES. This is likely the only time you’ll see back-to-back Lynx finds.

Dual Screen Stacking 

If you have a Family Video location nearby, stop in. All of their DS games are priced 2/$5. This entire lot was only $30.

Lynx-ed Up

The Lynx games are not the best part of this $80 game store haul, but the pun was too delicious (note the games stacked on the left are boxes only). This find ends the search for a Nintendo Power #1. There’s a stain on the cover but the inside is pure and complete. Plus, an additional 50 or mags were included:

Dancing the Night Away

Small local game store fine during a Black Friday sale. Nothing special, but that’s another down on the Dreamcast side. Should only have 18 games to go.

Vita’d

First grab in a while, this one from GameStop’s 4 for $20 sale. Cleaning up some holes in the Vita collection with this run.

A Better Starting Five

Local store find, only $14 after a trade-in of unsold garage sale fodder. This is the first time I’ve seen a copy of Widget locally. Captain America is a tough find on the Game Gear too. All in all, a fine selection of games and a great deal.
