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.

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.

NESting

A rare NES find, at least these days. $20 for this whole lot at a Napoleon, OH flea market, which includes controllers and all cables, plus the games. It’s definitely a rescue though – heavy smoke odor and dirt will need some work to remove.

Out Spied

A basic game store haul totalling $12. But what’s that “spying” from the back? A $7 copy of Super Spy Hunter which was only $2.50 after a store rewards discount? Yup. Win.

Dealings

A score from Facebook and a local game store, totalling somewhere around $60. A few sort of hard to find SNES games in there – at least hard to find locally anyway. Never saw Wizard of Oz prior to today.

Money Back Guarantee 

Post-Christmas binge for a total cost of… $0. Gift cards rule. Still wondering if I could cash in the guarantee on VR Soccer though.

On Flea-k

Around $40 for everything here (not pictured are two Tiger Woods Xbox 360 games) at an annual flea market. Good score despite the lack of controllers or AC adapter for the SNES.

Now You’re Playing With Power (Pad) 

Half off thrifting day and rummage sale day. Mostly resale items except for the Xbox games. Not pictured is a 3D Avatar Blu-ray and a slew of character twin bed sheets. Bed sheets? Yes. 

If you want something else to hunt while you’re thrifting, scour the bedding. ’80s era bed sheets/sleeping bags can command a decent return. Real Ghostbusters, Batman, Ninja Turtles… Etc. As long as condition is great, they can sell.

The Day of Birth

Was given (mostly) free reign to mop up in a local game store as a birthday gift, leading to this $75/free game haul. While Strider 2 may be missing the other disc (with an emulated version of the arcade original), it’s been on my most wanted list for a decade now. I’ll take what I can get. Sports fans should note NHL 2002 on GBA, which is an update to the Genesis era NHL titles. Physics are a touch off, but everything from the menus to the sprites are identical to NHL 96/97/98.

(Update: The Strider 2 disc is actually the Strider arcade disc. All copies were misprinted, and the games printed in reverse. I can see why the mistake is easy to make now.)
