NBA King

Inadvertently an NBA-focused collecting day from an out-of-town game store. NBA Give ‘n Go is a personal favorite, so finding the box brought out a smile. And hey, a TurboGrafx find too! $60 for everything here.

He’s On Fire!

Between the CD-i controller, the Godzilla 2 score, and this for only $2 (!) from a local thrift store, I’d say that’s cause for a celebration.

Stop: Sale Time

Oh, you’re having a 25% off all retro games sale, are you? I’ll gladly take advantage of that and spend around $12 for this lot (also involved were some movies not pictured making the total less precise). Nothing special, but it fills some holes on a variety of platforms.

Dupes

Small thrift store find, mostly to replace copies I have in lesser condition. Tekken 2 is taking place of a Greatest Hits copy because… Eww. $8 for the stack. 

And for some reason, the camera hates Hydro Thunder and kept cutting off the edge of the image.

A Sporting 4th

Why yes, I AM the guy who will wait until a 20% off holiday sale to buy $1 sports games. Every cent counts. A $24 haul from an out of town game store. The winner here is Chavez, a rarely seen sequel to Riddick Bowe Boxing. That, or maybe the Pac-Man book. It’s incredible in its awfulness. 

I also realize my phone camera focused on the wrong part of this image, and no, I’m not retaking it.

Hellraiser

When 3DO games beckon, I respond. A $40 haul, a good price overall. NBA Showtime is a replacement and NBA Jam I only needed for the long box. Hell, though, is the one I’ve tried snagging numerous times and finally found it for the right price. 

And ironically, six games divided by $40? 6.66 per game. It was meant to be.

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.

Black (Long Box) Friday 

A $40 Black Friday haul. Everything was 25% off at a local store.

Well Timed

Needed an AC adapter for the SNES find last weekend, which led to this $20 total haul from a local game store. PTO qualifies as a great find for a measly $1 (and it’s complete) while I’ve been hunting for an original box for Arnold Palmer Golf for some time. Weird coincidence/timing I found it the same week he died. 

Also, ESPN Speedworld isn’t worth much but it’s not easy to come by if you’re going for a compete set.
