And just checking to see if anyone is interested in some various D&D 2nd Edition books. I am getting nudged by the gf to get rid of them. But I don't want to get a dollar for all of them if I haul them to Half Price :) I'm looking to sell them cheap or trade them for other useless stuff that takes up less space (Hahahha).


Aw man, you mean there's no ebay market for them? I've also got a crate of 2E books (tons of Forgotten Realms shit) in my basement and another in my parents' basement. A couple of years ago I stopped in at http://www.games-plus.com/ in Mt. Prospect and asked if they bought collections, and they said yes, but it must be left there while they evaluate it. Never got around to it.

Does anyone have the Eternal Sonata strategy guide?

I hit 4 BB and 3 sears and I was only able to get an extra SCIV for PS3. When I went in Sears the employee said a guy was there and bought about 40 games (multiple copies).

I did not know their was a dedicated show for GI Joe. I'm a transformers fan but I would of check this out since they might do something cool for the movie coming out. Did you go slowdive21 and if so any pics?

If you guys want to play softball, we could meet at the Disney II school on Grace (near Pulaski). Smoque barbeque is right around the corner.

Anyone from the Chicago area manage to get anything from the BB sale they're wanting to trade? I'm looking for Infinite Discovery (360), Soul Calibur 4 (either version), Devil May Cry 4 (either version), Pure (either version). I picked up 2 copies of Quantum of Solace (360) on the last day of the sale (right before the store closed) to trade for the ones I really wanted.

I also have a sealed Rock Band Special Edition (PS3) that I'd like to trade for Rock Band Special Edition (360) or anything else decent so long as you're close enough for a local trade as I'd hate to ship the huge box =)

Yes and I can deliver it at the next CAG meet up. PM an offer for soul Calibur 4 (PS3)

I did go, but it was pretty weak this year (no pics). There is one transformers guy who had a booth. It was in half of a school gym and most of the sellers had large joes, not 3 3/4 inch. The big GI joe con is in Kansas City this year. Best bet for transformers movie stuff is Wizard World or the Botcon (official transformers convention) in CA. http://www.botcon.com/BotCon09/

I think blackout wanted bond on 360 with the t-shirt.

Just sent you a PM =)

Also I picked up FarCry 2 (360) if anyone's interested. Still want the same games I mentioned above except for Infinite Undiscovery since I went to eBay for it. Will be willing to check out your trade lists though.

On another note, are all the meetups usually in Chicago? Would like to go, but I live in the suburbs for a reason ;)

This sounds like it could be good. Post reminders about this as the time gets closer. I might be down for this, too.

I remember a while back we had a discussion about where to get Mexican Coca-Cola. Well, I strolled over to Costco (Lincoln Park) yesterday and found 24-pack's on sale for less than $20. A good price in my opinion since I pay a little over $1 per bottle at the local carniceria.

I found one of those Motorola "NFL Head Coach" headsets (PS2 / USB) at my closest GS (Howard and Clark) for $1, and then later at the Howard Best Buy I noticed they actually had price tags for their penny guides. Two were labeled which game (Bad Company and Spider-Man Web of Shadows) but 4 others didn't say which game and the kiosk SKU look-up didn't help. How long have they been doing that?

Thanks, I only thought west coast Costcos sell Mexican coke.

WARNING: I found Mexican coke 355mL made with high fructose corn syrup. The bottle was slightly different than the normal Mexican 355mL bottle made with sugar. So just a warning. Always look at the ingredients before you buy.

Also, I noticed that Produce World on Cumberland sells 24 packs of 500mL bottles of Mexican coke for something like $28. The per unit price is on par with Costco. I would have bought it if it weren't for all the Passover coke I stocked up on.

Wow...I can't believe I never noticed a thread dedicated to Chicago until right now! I may have to hit up this Garage sale this weekend...might be a few hidden gems in the mix.

Doesn't look like we'll get maps for the garage sale until Saturday AM. Check Hoy, Red Eye, Chicago Tribune, Reader and Craigslist.
