Nintendo Dreamin’

Two separate flea market finds, $45 for all. New Super Bros Wii is a replacement for a copy I recently purchased but was too scratched to work.

Lesson time too: The SNES Jr. came with the popular smell of singed cigarettes. To alleviate the issue, stuff the offending items into a box with a dryer sheet. Seal it, and let it sit for a few days. If it still didn’t work, add more dryer sheets and repeat.

Lesson Learned

Local thrift store finds. PC games are for resale and Shadow Madness WAS for me until I didn’t follow my own rule and check how many discs there should have been. There were only two in the case and it should have been three. It’s a $5 mistake.

GBA Huntin’

Oak Harbor, Ohio flea market and garage sale finds. $18 for everything. The GBA games were an especially good score at $3 each. Unfortunately, the market for GBA game is saturated with bootlegs which makes almost every find a bit questionable, but these specific carts ARE official.

Someone Likes Racing

From a lower Michigan Goodwill comes this small fleet of racing titles, all complete and in excellent shape, for a total of $14.

And yes, that is a CDi game in the lower left corner there, the first one I believe to be featured on this blog. Apparently Reed lost interest Sandy’s Circus Adventure when he got older. What a monster Reed must be.
