I'm guessing zero but what kind of case is it in . . . could be nice replacement case :-)


That's my guess too. The case is flat, looks similar to the cover of DC2 but says "Not For Sale" and advertises a coupon for $5 off inside.

Not necessarily. I have a squaresoft demo that used to pull some decent sales.

Funny, just as I was reading this I remembered that I used to include demo discs sometimes when I sold games and I reached over to a shelf and sure enough there was the Dark Cloud demo . . . mine is open but has the wrap on it with a mailing label on the back.

The coupon is the real trip . . . good until 2003 and only at Circuit City . . .

Which takes me back to my real introduction to CAG . . . the great Circuit City $5 clearance sale in July 2004 . . . Fuck I scored big at that one.

i found a shadow of the colossus demo disc sealed about a month back, and surprisingly saw one sell for 29.99 on ebay. Of course it was only one copy, but still nice to see, especially since I bought it for only 1 dollar.

I got this for $8. I've been looking for it, since I got the second volume for cheap a while back.

Unfortunately, I haven't had many good finds this year. It's been pretty dry in this area for game and other good stuff. I did manage to find a Logitech Harmony 880 and a pair of Bose Triport headphones for cheap.

So I was holding off posting this until I could add pictures, but my girlfriend broke my laptop so that may not be for awhile so here we go.

After an aggravating yard sale day saturday where rain in the morning made everyone cancel, I was driving to the flea market I set up at every week and stumbled on someone setting up their yard sale on the way there. Even though I was in a rush because spots at the flea market are first come first serve I stopped figuring I didnt get any yard sale action Saturday so a couple of minutes trying to get stuff wouldn't kill me.

So I talked to the guy, he ended up asking if there was anything I was looking for and I rattled off my list one of the things of course being video games. So he goes "Oh I have a box of Playstation 2 games I got at a yard sale but none of them work, I was just gonna throw them away but you can flip through in case you can do anything with them"

So of course I tell him I'll have a look and he brings out a milk crate of Xbox and Xbox 360 games. He said he paid $40 for the box and tried them all in his PS2 but they didn't work so he'd sell them for 25 cents each. There were 24 games so I handed him the $8 and went off on my merry way. What was in the box?

Star Wars KOTOR (PH)
Stat Wars KOTOR II x 2
Star Wars Battlefront
Star Wars Battlefront 2
Baldurs Gate Dark Alliance
Baldurs Gate Dark Alliance 2
Conker Live and Reloaded
Halo
Halo 2 LE
Marvel Ultimate Alliance
Dead or Alive 4
Then the other 12 were cheap commons like Burnout, Soul Calibur II, etc. I also got a few Bronze Age Batman comics from him, and a 3rd edition of The Killing Joke graphic novel.

Anyfart..... I found a 3DO of all things out in the middle of nowhere! It had a few crappy games with it, its the Goldstar model. I am debating keeping it or selling it, Its worth a little over $100 and the only game that looks half-way decent for it is the Street Fighter 2 game, plus I'd rather have the Panasonic model for my own collection. I paid $20 which I guess is a decent deal since I don't have one yet....the same person also had a ton of atari and intellivision games for 50 cents each so I just picked out the ones I didn't already have. After I got home and looked them up I saw that Fathom for Intellivison was in there and it is apparently one of the hardest to find Intellivison games. I guess that was my "karma" for the fake sale :lol:! But hey I've already been the victim of tons of fake sales so aren't I just evening things out?

Crows you have the logic of a retarded ape.

@Ferrari I see those damn things at every other garage sale.

Usually goes like this

Me: "Do you have any video games?"
Seller:"No we sold them all already, but we do have the guitar and drumset from guitar hero."

Found a full set of metal lawn darts with hoops last year for $3. It's BS they were outlawed in the first place; if some kid wants to throw them in the air and try to catch them that's just Darwin at work. When I was young society wasn't afraid to let the herd thin itself out, now kids are required to wear a helmet when they piss. Know what myself and the other neighborhood kids would do when we were bored? We would have rock fights.

Are they are really worth that much? I bought a set at Goodwill for a couple bucks a while back. Too bad no box or anything, but it had the jarts and hoops. Fun game I must admit.

I had a case of the super-rare "phone number obtained from a yard sale panning out into something" last week. Snagged myself an NES Console, SNES Console and 32 games for $150. It was a bit more than I would like to pay, but the value was there: 10 Games CIB, some near mint, manuals, and etc. Highlights include:

Castlevania 4
Contra 3 w/ manual
Lolo 2 w/ manual
Contra
Super C
Earthworm Jim CIB
Gradius 3 CIB
Mickey Mania CIB

A few of the CIBs were sports / commons (like an Othello I might as well keep) but still I'd conservatively value the lot at around $340.

I still have mine. I believe they are illegal to resell.

To the right person, yes. If you risk selling them on ebay they go for 80 to 100 but get cancelled almost immediately.
