Cleaving Land

Yes, it’s been slow around these parts. Blame an abysmally bad garage sale season. But, today was different as this birthday haul from various game stores in Cleveland shows. Not often do I get to use the TurboGrafx tag, and two more Dreamcast games inch me ever closer to that complete set.

Freebie Day

Did your local game store celebrate free video game day? This one did and Ghost Recon was my choice. The other two ran $35 but since I’ve never seen Dragonheart locally before and Jimmy Connor’s was sealed. Not a bad haul.

Oddity

Never seen this before, but it definitely has some cool factor. For $30 at a local game store, that seemed fair. Also acquired were a bunch of Sega Genesis loose boxes (all sports games) to fill in some collection holes.

Casting a Dream

A $50 haul from a local game store. That’s way more than I’d usually pay for this much stuff, but to knock two games off the Dreamcast list (leaving me with 15 or so to go for a complete set) is worth it.

Gaming with Mario

Not a spectacular find but this is certainly an oddball. For $2, why not? It’s a weird collection of games like Checkers, dominoes, and Go Fish, all with a weakly animated Mario guiding you.

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!

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.

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.

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.
