Once as a kid I cried as my parents drove from ny to nj. That was a far cry.

I went back to a store that didn't care about me buying penny guides. Just to check if I missed anything. I found 2 Pokemon Pokedex HC and 1 Final Fantasy XV CE Guide. That FFXV guide is going straight to ebay.

Are you serious? That is exactly why penny guides have become so strict. This is specifically why they aren't given out.

I'll give you 5 pennies for it, that's a huge return on your investment!

He listed it too. It's easy to locate the store where it was purchased from and make sure he isn't offered anything again. I'll be sure to report his auction as well.

That crap is exactly why penny guides have nearly gone from existence. If you don’t need or know a friend who does, don’t take it.

Gamestop never “allowed” penny guides. They’ve always destroyed them. We sometimes just get lucky.

Best Buy penny guides were ruined by IATCG. It had nothing to do with reselling. They weren’t supppsed to be selling them, anyway. They were just too lazy to mess with them. Now, they hardly carry guides, anyway.

I take it GS doesn’t drop guides anymore. They haven’t in quite some time.

Shout out to Romeo ! Was traveling for work and near two GS so figured I'd look. Funny thing is they didn't have the SC Snes book but the HC ones instead :D

Thank you Off. I really only keep track CE guides as I don't collect softcovers.
