The wife and I bought our first house late last year, and since moving in I've been working on turning the basement into a lair for all my gaming stuff. It's like 95% done at this point, just need new curtains, a nicer CRT, a few more small posters, and a sound bar for the LCD, but I'm really proud of it so far!

#12730854 The Official 2015 Yard Sale Thread Post your finds!

Posted by Indigo_Streetlight on 07 June 2015 - 05:53 PM

Well CAG, I didn't go out on Saturday morning due to being laid up with a 'roid; however, I did follow up a lead from last week's yard-sale action (without phone confirmation no less, I actually had to drive out without being sure whether my contact would be there). Fortunately he was, and like an expert magician he conjured a friend of his within 20 minutes. Needless to say I wasn't sure what to expect from this Dragon Warrior-like summoning-- though when Contact B brought out four tupperware bins that were barely portable from his car, I knew that groovy-time was about to occur. 
Okay, so maybe it wasn't all that easy. I knew right off the bat when facing a volume deal like this (a later count revealed nine systems and a little over 100 games in all) that a $5 or $10 offer wasn't going to fly. A part of me was tempted to look through the lot bit by bit with a piece of paper and pen just to get a handle on what was there. In situations like this, you don't want to insult the seller because they could come back with an enormous sum. Ultimately though I scrapped the full valuation idea or even looking at everything and pitched on what I saw so far: $60.
To which I quickly added that I could look some more. This was where it got tricky, since the seller showed no inclination one way or another and told me I could take my time. I could easily get caught in a situation of bidding myself up; what would I be comfortable paying?
After a time, I then asked the seller if they had any counter-offer thoughts. "One hundred dollars and it's yours," they said. Done.
So here's the neat thing about all of this, while I may not be able to sit squarely on my ass at the moment, this is the first time ever that I've encountered a Sega Saturn or Sega CD in the wild, over the course of my five years of active hunting and beyond. It was always, "Nah, I'll never break down and buy those systems unless they're bundled with games." NOW I HAVE DONE SO, IN USING YARD SALE POWERS IN TANDEM WITH VERY GENEROUS PEOPLE.
Note: Fuzzy pictures are of the highlights only; I won't bore you with the PS2 console, the n64 console, and the Dreamcast console. There's also a Wii which... HOW DARE YOU EXIST BESIDE THIS GLORIOUS SATURN?!?
Edit: Here's a list of the Sega Saturn games, as the pics may not give you the full impact.
- Dragon Force
- Command & Conquer
- Tetris Plus
- Mr. Bones
- Quake
- Sonic 3D Blast
- Shining the Holy Ark
- Tomb Raider (2x)
- Hexen
- D
- Saturn Bomberman
- Enemy Zero
- Braindead 13
- Lunacy
- Resident Evil
- Dark Savior
- Duke Nukem 3D
- Iron Storm
- Three Dirty Dwaves
- Bubble Bobble (also featuring rainbow islands)
- Crusader No Remorse
- Wipeout
- Bug Too!

#12481923 The Official Craigslist Finds Thread Vol. 2

Posted by strawyleader997 on 09 February 2015 - 02:11 AM

I just bought a lot of stuff from a guy who was selling his kids old stuff. It was all in a picture, with no descriptions of the items.

White Xbox 360 console with cords
SNES console with cords
about 300 pokemon cards(there are some good cards)
Pokemon special pikachu edition Gameboy game in box

In the picture, I thought the pokemon game was just complete, but when I picked the stuff up it turns out that it's SEALED! I only paid $80 for all of it, and the sealed Pokemon game sells for $250.
