Was at my local Goodwill and noticed behind the jewlery case they had a sealed Gameboy....They wanted $500 for it. It was at that moment I realized my Goodwill is a POS.

One of the thrift stores near my house is feast or famine when it comes to games. Cherry-picked this from a cart full of stuff after seeing nothing worth buying for about six months.

 

$5 for Zelda, $2 for Wii Sports, $3 each for the others.

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!

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?!?
