I've hit about 2 dozen yard sales in my area in the last couple weekends and absolutely NO games around.  Everybody here just sells clothes and tables.

 

And to add to my bad experience...today I bought Yahtzee for $0.50 from a lady's sale, she said everything was in it and they'd played it twice.  Opened the box when I got home and it was literally filled with used scorecards.  Not even any dice included!!!  Fuck that.

Today was awesome. Pics to come! 

 

@Ferrari Racer.. a FREE Marantz receiver? very nice

I thought at first when I bought it probably wouldn't be worth much since it's so old. When I looked on eBay back at home, I was shocked! I think the one I got works. All the lights work( it looks REALLY nice with the lights on ). Just need to figure out how to get my speakers connected to it.

I always check inside boxes before I buy anything like that. I can't count how many times I've found incomplete sets when the owner says everything is there.

Haven't been finding much these past few weeks. Paid $5 for PS2 Star Wars Starfighter, GBA Treasure Planet, and GBA Jimmy Neutron Boy Genius. First two are complete but the third is missing the game...hopefully I can still make some money off the box.

 

Only other find today was ~400 Pokemon cards for $5. There are a few rares in there so I can make my money back and keep most of them.

:360: Batman: AA - Kinectimals (Now with Bears version) :lol: - Lego Star Wars: Complete Saga - Mortal Kombat vs DCU

:ps3: - Cawadoody 3 - Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4 - Lego Pirates

 

$1 each, so $7 total. Pretty good games, actually - and you can't argue with the price.

:360: Wireless Les Paul - $4 at a thrift shop. The tilt sensor on it doesn't seem to be working right though.

:wii: Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock bundle, complete - $10 at a yard sale.

 

And finally, one of the crowning jewels of my yard sale season (not that there's much of it left...)

 

2hf48iu.jpg

 

:wii: Xenoblade Chronicles, complete and mint - $10! :hot:

 

This was marked $18, as you can see, but this was one of those odd situations where the seller actually lowballed me and just said "$10 is fine." If you insist, cool guy! The game is in ridiculously good condition too. I still have my original sealed copy so this is going on ebay. I just wish I'd found it before the recent Gamestop fiasco - in my opinion they definitely did reprint the game and the prices have gone down accordingly. But still, you gotta admit this is an awesome score.

Score for me today!

 

Went to a giant parking lot sale, found some stuff:

Gamecube Super Mario Strikers

Gamecube Mario Party 5

Gamecube Mario Party 7

Gamecube Super Smash Bros Melee

 

Everything in good shape and complete. All for $10, down from $5 each.

 

PS1 Street Fighter Ex 2 Plus

PS1 Speed Punks

 

Complete and in good shape. $3 for both.

 

Futurama Bender's Big Score DVD $1. Cardboard casing was a little bent, but it is not for resale so no big deal, the disc looks perfect.

 

Saw 2 Xbox 360s, for almost $150 and $175 with no games. It may have been different had it been at a house and I could have tested them out. A dirty NES for $75, a cleaner one for $50. A $12 Original PS1 with the RCA output. (which is supposed to be one of the best CD players you can get I think) a $25 PS2 Slim that looked like it came from the dump, a stack of PS2 games, but most of the discs were missing or not the right game, so I passed on them all.

Running out of daylight for yard sales here, but I haven't done bad this year. I think there may be 2 or 3 good weeks left. It was pretty cold out this morning.

I got something of an eclectic score from my first yardsale stop of the day; the ad looked like it was going to be a ho-hum Playstation 1 console with a few games, but it turned out to be a friggin' whole family library of 40+ games with the console as a side garnish. The games were clean and the prices were addled-minded ($1 each or 5 for $6, or is that 6 for $5?) which is just how we like them. Here were my choice picks of local reseller denial:

 

Ape Escape

Batman Beyond: The Return of the Joker

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Darkstalkers

Digimon World 2

Jersey Devil

King's Field

Marvel Super Heroes

MediEvil

Mega Man X4

Metal Gear Solid

Tekken 2

The Simpsons Wrestling

Twisted Metal 3

Warpath: Jurassic Park

Xena: Warrior Princess

 

All for $10, self-discounted by the Lawn Hostess.

 

For the rest of my day the finds were minor; however, I did run into this semi-transient art school dude who was hunting for games himself-- in the college & old people section of town where I never find anything :wave: It seemed like the guy was just starting out, so I drove him back to my part of town where I had an earlier contact who mentioned that her brother might have some spare video games and Legos to part with. As it turns out, the brother didn't have anything super fantastic in terms of video games or Legos (I almost didn't want to pitch on the Legos due the amount of Megablocks in the container, but finally settled on $6 once he brought out a helicopter and a couple of minifigs). The art dude really shined as a negotiator though when the brother brought out a PS2 fat console with about 20 games. At first a few of the games were brought out to me, but I wasn't seeing anything more than scratches and couple of Abe Lincolns at best. It was time for the new guy, and man could he play the Poor Card, the Ramen card, the Everything-but-paying-above-$20 card (Indigo's suggested price). It was one of those harrowing situations where the buyer and seller are so close on price that you just want to find ANYTHING that's bundleworthy, but there's no obvious choices coming out of the woodwork.

 

Finally the owner caved though, and condolences were exchanged. As it often goes in the gray morality of an Indigo world, an attempt to do good leads to the creation of a new and rampant evil, with a face that looks like Lego Star Wars and Destroy all Humans...


The Asylum leads the eyes of those pursued by gaming madness...

Super Monkey Ball Deluxe (Complete) - 3
Tekken Tag Tournament (Complete) - 1
Pac-Man Books (Smaller One Still Has The Record) - .15
GoldenEye 007 & Rush 2: Extreme Racing USA - 1.25
7 N64 Games & Twisted Metal 2 (All Boxed Games Are Complete) - 5
SNES With Everything Needed & Donkey Kong Country 3 (Controllers Are Knockoffs) - 10
9 SNES Games - 10
 
Super Monkey Ball Deluxe was the only thing I got Friday and was asking price. I got 15 small books at one sale for a buck and figured that works out to about .15 for the 2 video game related ones I have pictured. I didn't realize how bad the picture turned out till I got a good look at it on my computer but you can probably still tell that the 2 N64 games at the bottom are in really poor shape but I figured I'd take a chance on cleaning them up and hopefully getting them to work for .75 & .50. The N64 games & Twisted Metal 2 were a buck each and I offered 5 for the 8 I Got. When I asked about video games at one house they brought out a SNES with DKC 3, asked how much and they countered with how much will you give me for it not sure if they were going to want the moon & the stars I offered $10 anyways which they took. Asked about video games at one sale Friday and the lady hinted at having something older, return on Saturday and it was SNES games that were $2 each. Got Mario Kart, Mortal Kombat & Street Fighter II for 2 each then on the way home I stopped by again and ended up seeing if they wanted to do better to get rid of the rest which were still around. Guy offered to do 6 for the last 6 and I was thinking more like .50 each so I countered with 4 which he took. Anything else I didn't mention details about was asking price.

I went to a couple garage sales after 2:00 today. The first garage sale I stopped at had a bunch of original xbox games(nothing good) and a original xbox with cords and 4 wired controller for $50. I saw some extra cords(for the original xbox and xbox 360) in a box on the ground and asked the lady about them and she said that I could just have them, and I also bought a wireless pelican eclipse xbox controller for $3(it had the receiver). The cords that were in the box were: xbox 360 ac adapter, xbox 360 component cable, official original xbox HD component cable, and a original xbox monster component cable. I didn't know that the original xbox component cables that I got were worth $30 each on ebay when I got them.

Nice finds, everyone.  That SNES looks beautiful, Fonewearl.

 

I'm a bit behind in my posting, but I've been out like crazy and its been pretty awesome.  Here are my finds from last Friday, 9/6:

 

I kick Friday off out west.  I had been talking to someone on CraigsList the night before who had a lot of two 3DSes for sale, with some games, for $140.  However, the lady and I had tickets to Wicked Thursday night, so I couldn't pick it up and we made arrangements for me to come by on Friday.  It just so happened, my yard sale route took me into their area.
 
I let Mrs. Geek sleep in while I got out the door bright and early.  The first sale I drove by was all kinds of creepy -- loads of Star Trek collector's plates, and not a single person around.  I didn't see any gaming stuff, or the sale runner to ask, so I was off to the next sale.
 
I poked around for a bit and didn't see any gaming stuff.  When I asked, though, the dude running the sale poked around in a CD bin, and found a disc-only copy of Kingdom Hearts.  I picked it up for a dollar, and as I was leaving, a mass of gray cable caught my eye.  I saw the lovely Apple-esque white of a Wii underneath.  Another fiver later and the day is already off to a nice start.
 
9688492426_5046af6121.jpg
 
Wii console, no wiimotes, and Kingdom Hearts:  $6
 
I hit a few more sales, and nothing.  No one has any gaming stuff.  Boo!  I turn down another street, to head to an unlisted sale, and stop at a sale that's just setting up on the same street - a neighbor taking advantage of the signs and traffic.  DOUBLE UNLISTED SALE.  No real "gaming" stuff, but they are apparently sick of these little guys who are taking over their entire house and let me take them off their hands for a $10 adoption fee.  Then I notice Pikachu, and fork over another buck.
 
9685255157_8849854f6a.jpg
 
Skylanders and Pikachu:  $11
25 pieces of Skylanders (including bags and portals) @ $10 = $0.40 each
Running total spent:  $17
 
I found another sale that had some Star Wars figures.  I chatted with the sale runners, lamenting how I also had collected them when I was younger and that they're completely worthless now, while the son ran inside to check for games.  He accepted $3 for the lot which included a wallet with a bunch of PlayStation Magazine demo discs.  The funniest thing ever, though, was this giant meathead guy who showed up and was asking about Darth Maul and Boba Fett stuff, going on about how Maul was his favorite Star Wars character ever.  I stifled my giggling until I got back to my car.
 
9685256281_65da47ede9.jpg
 
9688495946_d11eb26e0c.jpg
 
PSX sealed games and demo discs:  $3
Cost per item for 18 items - $0.17 ea.
Total for the day:  $20
 
In my favorite CraigsList find in a while, I end my yardsaling day picking these up for $140:
 
9688497154_1760cd14f0.jpg
 
The best part was that Paper Mario, Sonic, and the second, sealed Angry Birds weren't even discussed beforehand, they were just thrown in as the seller had found them.  I would have offered more, but because it was CraigsList, I only brought the exact amount with me out of caution.  So, sweet find to cap off my Friday!
 
3DS Lot:  $140
Cost per item for 10 items:  $14
Total for the day:  $160
 
This was good.  But Saturday...oh, Saturday, was so much better.

I've actually been rotating out 3DSes, haha.  I had my Ambassador 3DS at first.  Last month, I picked up a blue 3DS XL that had Luigi's Mansion pre-installed, and last week I transferred it to a blue 3DS XL that was in far better condition and also had Mario Kart.

 

The first 3DS XL with games was 180 -- I sold my friend my 3DS for 100 cash and sold a few of the bundled games to recoup about 160 in total, I kept Pokemon Black 2.  The second XL was 200, but it also included a ton of really good games.  I sold the first XL with some crappy DS games for $180 on eBay, and I'm selling a few of the spare 3DS games and so far my upgrades have turned a nice profit.

 

I already sold that blue 3DS on GameTZ for 100...I'll probably sell the red one online, too.  I was going to sell it to another friend, technically my friend's boyfriend, but he was being a dick with haggling over it since I was already offering a good price and he couldn't pay it all up front anyway...and his gf just mentioned his car crapped out.  I don't want to go back on our deal, but she'll kill me if I'm selling him gaming stuff when he should be paying real bills.

 

So if anyone wants that red 3DS for $100 shipped its all yours, haha.

There was a local town-wide yard sale yesterday. The day was great, but could have potentially been even better. When I got home I looked at Craigslist garage sale ads and one posted at 5am mentioned over 600 games for vintage systems. The address was in a trailer park just a few streets over from where I hit.  :hot:  Ah well. 

 

First find of the day... tub of game stuff parents were letting their son sell. I picked up a few things and asked a price. He said $15. Then I asked a price for the whole tub. He said $20. I asked if he was sure. He took another look and did a little more math. $40, he said. I felt much better about this price.

 

Also included was a slim ps2 with all the hookups and a bunch of wires.

IMG_0135_zpsedc7850d.jpg

 

Second game find of the day was the best. Having been to enough yard sales, I'm sure others can relate, I can kind of guess what some folks will have. Stopping for a sale I saw a black suitcase opened on the lawn and said to myself "that's going to have games in it." Got out of the car, saw the games and immediately asked the price. She said $1 apiece. There was one there I told her I was really excited about, and said I was going to pay her more. She said, "ok, $2." 

 

Pics (first is all good & fine, 2nd one... yeah buddy!):

Also got a minty Plum Game Boy color with a bunch of games, ~half shown. $10

 

IMG_0138_zpsa5eb53c5.jpg

 

Sunshine, Tetris (sealed), and wii fit $5. Double Dash $5.

IMG_0139_zps8fd7ea7e.jpg

 

And last find, $25 (but needs a new battery :/)

For any resellers, Zunes have held their value really well and this is the first I've found that needed any work. A lot of times they can be had cheaper than used iPods for not being as identifiable.

I see Zunes rarely at yard sales but on Craiglist they always seem pretty cheap. 3 months ago I picked up a 16GB Zune HD for $40. Tomorrow I'm getting another 16GB Zune HD for $30 with a Zune docking station.

Haha thanks for the congrats. It's one of those games you're bound to find eventually. Now if I could just snag a wild Panzer Dragoon Saga... But, my pick for find of the week goes to Xenoblade. That has to be one of the first wild copies found!. @Ferrari Racer, I wish they were that cheap by me!. I still have my 80gb from when they came out. Never got an HD, but always wanted one.

I got a nice lot for $50!  I was interested in the SNES stuff at 50 to begin with, but the seller threw in a modded Xbox!  And then that came with a bunch of controllers and stuff.
 
If anyone is interested in it, let me know, I'd be more than happy to part with it for a modest price because those things are big and I don't have room.  It has two hard drives, ones with the regular OS and one with the modded OS.  I think its set up to run emulators and homebrew and stuff.

I've never seen a grey Maximum Carnage before.  I will be adding that Clayfighter TE to my collection, though.
 
Just one thing though -- these all have white out or something on the back.
 
Any tips on how to get this stuff off?

^^Fingernails ;) If that doesn;t work and you have a steady hand you can use something to scrape it. Like a putty knife/scraper. I'm not aware of anything that breaks it down. I've heard wd-40, but I havent tried it myself. Acetone/nail polish remover would eat through it, but it may eat through the plastic too.

For any resellers, Zunes have held their value really well and this is the first I've found that needed any work. A lot of times they can be had cheaper than used iPods for not being as identifiable.

Had a pretty good time Saturday morning. There were a bunch of yard sales along a few blocks up in Towson, MD, and the weather was absolutely perfect. At one of my first stops I asked about video games, and a kid there brought out his old DS Lite, a little carrying case, and a bunch of games. At first I was just interested in the DS (all my DS lites have broken hinges), but he threw in all the games for the same price, so I took them as well. Got the whole package for $12, and was super excited when I checked a little closer later and found MegaMan ZX in there, something I've been wanting to replay. Most of the lot was stuff I wasn't terribly interested in, so I kept , Megaman ZX, Megaman Starforce Leo, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, Star Wars Battlefront, and Lego Batman and traded the rest in to pay off most of my Pokemon X preorder. The DVD's in that picture came later, and I picked them all up for $7.

I also found a couple of cheap systems and games that will be going to MAGFest. The XBox came with cords and a controller and was only $3. The PS2 came with cords, a controller, a dancepad, and some games, and was $5. Unfortunately it only plays PS1 disc and blue-back PS2 discs, but we can still use it, so I still count it as a good find.

Also picked up a few miscellaneous items: a stuffed pokeball, a CD for my wife, and a trade paperback for "Bone," all for $1 each. All in all a very pleasant time.

I bought a lot of stuff this weekend. This is just the video game related stuff. 9-13-13 (Friday the 13th edition) Post 1 of 2

 

I bought these 2 dvds for 50 cents each and asked about the PS1. The lady said it is missing its cords, so she gave it to me for free. That addon must make it able to play burned games as there was a copy of tony hawk in the system.

This sale advertised video games. I beat 4 other people to the games (they showed up after me) someone could have been there before me though as I was only 30 minutes early or so. These were marked $3 each. I paid $6 total for them.

This sale advertised a SEGA and PlayStation systems. I made sure I was way early and I barely beat my competition to the sale. I saw these boxes sitting on a table and immediately grabbed them.

I hit this sale and saw these in a Rubbermaid. I asked about them and the girl said they don't work and I could have them. PS2 fat and slim.

 

I asked if they had any other games and her friends who were also at the sale said they have a SEGA system that they could dig out. I told them I would be interested and they asked how much I would pay. I explained it depends on the games and what comes with it. He said it had a 32x that sits on top, so I asked them to pull it out and hold it for me and that I would come back and check it out the next day. Story will be continued in post number 2 ;)

Main reason I'm posting is I got sniped on a potentially great deal, and am slightly annoyed.  The sale in question was advertising an N64 "Pokemon edition", which I assumed was the Pikachu version.  I was correct in that assumption.  So I show up slightly early as they were still setting up, and overheard them say to another early bird that they were still in process of setting up, and everything will be out by 8.  Not wanting to push any buttons, I greet them, and look around at what they do have set up.  While do this, another guy apparently asked about the games, and they dug them out for him.  I didn't get a good glance, but from what I did see, there was also a SNES, Super Mario World, and Super Smash Bros. in addition to the Pikachu N64.  I also saw probably $80 in this guy's hand, so it's not like it was a super steal.  Still, would have loved to add that N64 to my collection. 

 

Haven't really found much this year worth mentioning, let alone taking pictures of, but anyway, here's everything I've found this season.

 

Gamecube with 2 1st party controllers and 15 games - $20

Notables were Super Mario Sunshine, Super Mario Strikers, Legend of Spyro, and Godzilla Destroy all Monsters Melee. 

 

Halo 2 PC - $3

 

Portal 2 PS3 with Steam code - $4

 

Best find of the season:

CIB Sega Master System with 11 CIB games and the control stick also CIB - $45

Games:

After Burner

Alien Syndrome

California Games

Double Dragon

Hang On/Astro Warrior

Monopoly

Out Run

Reggie Jackson Baseball

Shinobi

Wonder Boy in Monster Land

Wonder Boy III the Dragon's Trap

Was hoping to get more gaming stuff today but that sure didn't happen I went to one yard sale and spent almost all of my cash there.

 

I bought a pair of Klipsch Synergy 1's and a 125V Klipsch subwoofer for $65. Can't decide if I want to keep them or sell them. They are almost too big. I am living in a dorm room right now and my polk audio speakers in the background are a perfect size.

 

They also had a 50" HDTV for $150. Tempting but it was a little old and HUGE

I had a few decent finds last weekend and I was thinking the same thing..... maybe I'll post these in the 2014 thread.  Still haven't listed anything from this year.  :booty: If I get more than two years behind I'll just not post them.

 

Also, the new site is still buggy as hell.  I had to go back to the previous page to be able to post, and it wouldn't allow me to quote.
