    I think Columns was free in a rebate offer.

    You should post prices. Finds aren't as interesting without prices unless its some rare one of a kind thing because how do we know you didn't pay eBay price and its not really a find?

    I stopped posting prices because no one seemed interested, and it's typically nothing spectacular. I'll fix up my post with the rest + prices.

    This is what the Columns cartridge looks like - it's the only one I could find on eBay. The stickers seem to be arbitrarily placed on the cartridge on case by hand. I've got a CIB copy and can't find any information on it, so I'll take you at your word for it Nayus.

    Thanks for posting prices, it seems more interesting to me seeing what kind of deals people got, but that's just me.

    Just got a free Sega Saturn from a friend who said he never plays it anymore and had two. He also gave me the pad for fighting games.

    Picked up MAG (PS3) for $30 from a co-worker. He said he only played a couple of times because he didnt like it so he sold it to me for cheap.

    Agreed. And "finds" to me means more than "Got the <newest release game name> in the mail from Amazon today." I post a lot of stuff from game shops and even those I don't qualify as "finds" unless the price is ridiculous. Thrift stores, garage sales, old box in the attic, etc. - those are finds.

    So: A story or description of a true "find" along with the price is what we're looking for in this thread.

    Yeah, that's why I was intentionally leaving the price off. I don't really consider my purchases as true "finds", as they are carried by places where I would expect to find them and for comparable prices to eBay. I do pay more than eBay prices at times, but that's because I enjoy the hunt and it gives me a story behind the game besides "I found it on eBay".

    In any case, the finds thread these days is more of a "What did you get?" instead of a "What interesting item did you pick up/run into?".

    Here's a story for you Deadman:
    I got an FC Twin recently as part of a payment for my car (which a friend of a friend purchased), which sparked another friend's interest. I picked up an FC3+ for him and he's been starting to get back into collecting. I've been selling/giving him some of my games and replacing them with CIB versions, but it's been interesting getting calls every couple days hearing "I remember this game...do you have it?" It's part of the reason I got back into collecting - being able to share memories of the classics with friends and finding new classics to play.

    I found a sealed PS1 Resident Evil 2 Greatest Hits, that no one seems to know what it's worth. That makes me feel gooooooood!

    Aslo found most of the peices for G1 Devastator and a Starfox 64 cart. Not a bad day at the office?)

    I love to hear what anyone gets as I read every single entry in this thread. And stories of thrifts or fleas are as entertaining as they come! Bring em on!

    Very cool! I recently gave a friend one of my extra Genesis consoles because her original one from 93 had just started acting up. Since then, she's begun to play it again more and more because her 13 and 9 year old kids are really getting into the classic platformers on the system. We regularly talk about what they are playing, and I will get them new games to play to keep their interest up. It's fun to share these games with friends!

    My friend has a CDX and a Neo Geo AES. His CDX has been at my place for a while, so I've been enjoying it every so often. Typically when he comes over, we'll hook up his camera and play through a couple games so that he can upload them to his YouTube channel. We played through Final Fight CD and Cadilliacs & Dinosaurs: The Second Cataclysm last time.

    We're planning a runthrough on Keio Flying Aces and Snatcher next time he's over. He tried out Snatcher while he was over last time, and it was interesting tossing in names to the computer. I never knew Hideo Kojima liked Zaviga...

    In any case, I've got the top 2 most valuable Sega CD games CIB now for decent prices (~$100 for Keio, ~$90 for Snatcher). I think I'll start focusing on finishing my US Sega CD collection. I'm up to 32 total now.

    I picked up Super Mario Strikers (GC) yesterday for $11.99 at a local gaming store. I've wanted to get it for awhile, but the only place that I could find it was Gamestop and they have some pretty ridiculous prices for 1st party Nintendo games.

    $30 for Mario Party 5 would agree with you on that one...

    Some interesting finds yesterday:



    Four factory sealed copies of Star Tropics for 8 bucks each. It's a common game and I actually have one sealed already making that 5 copies I own total. I really debated wether or not to pick them up but decided at worst they'd make decent trade material. These were all at Bookman's. They're in excellent condition and all still have plastic hang tabs stuck to the back. They were having "moustache day" at Bookman's, so my facial hair saved me an extra 10%. Alllll Right!

    Also got this stuff at the same Bookman's:



    NES - Cleaning Kit (complete) - 4
    NES - Double Dragon (complete) - 8
    PC - Space Quest Collection...8, can't wait to replay all these!

    Then at Goodwill:



    PC - Codename: Iceman (complete) - 2
    PC - Space Quest III (complete) - 3

    Gotta love complete big box PC games. Both of these were decent Sierra titles so I grabbed them. Funny finding a boxed Space Quest game after buying the collection the same day, haha.

    Also pictured is Mr. Do's Castle for 2600 which I bought from FanOPants for 40 shipped, thanks again man!

    It's mostly since GameStop overprices them. You actually got a decent deal on Strikers.

    I probably just got lucky, since this store hastily marked LOZ: Windwaker from $13.99 up to $29.99, and very sloppily; the old price sticker/barcode was still visible underneath. If I didn't have this title, I would've just peeled off the new price tag and brought it up to the register

    They also had Elder Scrolls: Morrowind GOTY (Xbox) priced at $29.99. Am I missing something here?
