Garage Sale Season Underway

Around $100 for everything, but not shown are two Wii consoles with WiiMotes and cables. They sealed the deal. Also not shown are blank cases include multiple copies of Wii Sports. Long garage sale weekend, but it proved to be worth it.

The One Where I Paid $45 for Bubsy

… but I got a great deal on the rest! A mere $2 each for complete-in-box DS games is a steal. I couldn’t turn down a Jaguar game in the wild though, even if it’s Bubsy.

Coleco No

Ignoring my lack of a Colecovision console, the price on those Colecovision games was too good to pass on. Actually, the price on the whole stack wasn’t bad: $10 for everything, thanks to sizable trade-in credit.

Sealed Up

Minor local game store pick up. $12 for the stack. Prince of Persia was only $4 sealed. At that price, why not?

Always. Ask. (Example 2)

Following up from a post two or three weeks ago, the tip remains an absolute truth: Always. Ask.

In this case, the garage sale-havers told me they had PS4 and “Nintendo 84” games after I asked about games. Expecting N64 stuff, they walked out with these. $20 for the stack. Sold.

Hand Holding

A multi day, multi place find. The epic handhelds came from a garage sale. $15 for the whole lot, which was a steal.

These other games came from a local game store. $30 for the lot after trade-in.

Wonder Duo

Overpriced or not, it’s rare to see any Turbo Duo game in the wild, so sure, this Wonder Boy import for $15 seemed like a deal. $40 for the whole stack from an out of town game store, which includes that hard to find Tecmo Bowl for the PS1.

Always. Ask.

Every garage sale: Ask for videogames. Doesn’t matter what they have out. Ask. Once in a while, you get the, “I have some Nintendo games in the attic” response, and it leads to this $15 deal.

Gaming is the Law

Some internet help and an eBay deal cuts down on the Game Gear list. Just under 30 games to go for a complete US set, and the only pricey ones are the Camerica games.

As of today, here are the current needs:
