I'm so happy, I had the ultimate yard sale find today!

Post by jeffslot » Sat Nov 05, 2005 9:58 am

Hi guys,

I'm so excited I can't believe it. I have to share this with you guys, because I don't really know anyone else that really cares about video games and such.

I happened upon a yard sale that I though was awesome. So I asked the kid how much he wanted (my best guess is he was 14-16) for all of his stuff. The kid said "I dunno, like $35". I said "No, I'll give you $40". Things were going great, until his mom came over. I ended up paying $55 for everything in both pictures (I think the Nintendo DS is worth that alone).

Please let me know what you think, although I will still think I got a great deal no matter what anyone says.

On bad thing is that I've noticed that the Game Gear doesn't seem to work.

Here is a picture of all of the games I got:

Here is a picture of all of the systems I got:

I also left a gigantic tangle of adapters, controllers, multitaps, etc out of the picture because they were just too messy.

Thanks for letting me share with you guys.

:D

That is unbelievable... Wow.... WOW!!!! HOLY! (I'm watching the pic slowly load, and it just keeps showing more and more!). That is one sick deal man. Congrats!

Hey would you consider selling me the Game Gear since it's not working?

You got the DS too? That's amazing. Is it broken or something?
