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.

Sailing Away

Community garage sale find of little excitement. Was in a mood to revisit NBA Street after spending time with NBA Playground while Ace Combat completes the series set on PS2. With the addition of the SNES AV cable, this haul ran me $4.10. Big spender.

It’s Thrifty

A small thrift store haul, for a total of $10. That’s worth it for the Marvel games alone.

$20 total haul from lower Michigan garage sales. Meh.

Checking In

Local game store reopened after being closed for some time. They offered B1G2 free as a thank you, leading to this $20 haul.

The Eighth Wonder

The EIGHTH (!) retro game store in the city has opened, offering this haul. Prices were fair – $30 for the lot – but fell back on eBay pricing for most. Robocop vs. Terminator is one I can finally scratch from my want list.

Sports Days

A double store find between a local shop and Destiny Games in Michigan. With movie trade-ins and a leftover gift card, this entire haul only ran me $24.50. Ridge Racer Unbounded had eluded me for some time. It must be somewhat uncommon. And, any day with a CD-i score is a good day.

Black Friday Score

The first post on this blog to ever require two images to capture the full set of games. A local game store offered B1G2 free for Black Friday, plus a gift card matching deal up to $40.

Not only did this selection of 32 games only cost me $40, there is still $9 left on the gift card for next time. A sensational buy which also landed me two long time want list titles: Batman on the Game Boy and Task Force Harrier EX for Genesis.

Boy Game

Gamestop and local game store haul. Game Boy games were B1G1 free. Fist of the North Star has been on my want list for years, same with Rumble Racing. $36 for everything here.

A note on the two GBC “Rumble” carts. When buying these, make sure to check the AAA battery has not rotted out. That would almost certainly indicate a ruined game. The library of GBC Rumble carts is small, but prone to those issues if they’ve been in storage for a while.

Thrifty Thrift Store

Thrift store finds. Unspectacular, but some games I’ve been looking for. How something as simple as Bases Loaded on Game Boy has eluded me all these years, I’ll never know.
