Fishing for Games

Been dealing with continuing health issues but in an attempt for normalcy, I headed to a local game store and found… a fishing game. Not terribly exciting, but Mark Davis’ The Fishing Master is not common, and for $8 total with the Game Boy game? Not a bad deal.

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.

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.

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.

Bundling

After a trade-in, this lot came to $40 at a local game store. Decided to start buying last gen games in collections/bundles to save on space. It’s not much, but replacing God of War and Infamous with those collections makes room for two additional shelf spots.

Flea Infested 

When it’s this hot out, indoor flea markets are the only choice. For $8, this isn’t such a bad deal.

Not So HD

$60 dropped into a local game store. Some decent deals – Mario Galaxy is pristine and was only $10 – and I included the UHD Blu-ray since it was only $10 new. That was a chunk of the cost, and better still, an easy resell for $25 or so.

Peace Keeping

Huge lot of SNES games scored from a Facebook garage sale group. There were 38 games in total for $120. Seem like a lot? It’s not. In the seller’s picture was this cart:

It’s Peace Keepers, valued between $100-$120 on its own. Consider the condition, and it’s probably $60, making this one cart about equal to the others in value, turning this into a great find. Whenever you find a lot, ALWAYS make sure to check the carts. Hidden gems like this show up all the time.

$12 haul from a local game store, an improvement over an empty weekend of garage sales.
