    Default Strangest thing you've eevr traded for game(s)?

    This past week I sold a buddy a few PS1 games (Fear Effect, RE: DC, & Abe's Exoddus). I only charged $3 for RE: DC. He had a gallon of milk, so as part of the deal I got the milk for RE: DC. (I got $ for the others).

    What's the weirdest/funniest thing you've ever traded/accepted in trade for games? Yes, I suppose...er, physical activites count.

    Well, I paid for a chicken dinner for a guy once and got a toploader NES in trade. I guess that's mine

    I traded a bunch of Magic The Gathering cards (mostly Ice Age) for a Dreamcast without hookups a few years ago.

    Ahmmm... Since you mentioned physical activities up front, I wonder if you're not being entirely forthcoming.

    My dad gave me his old 2000AD/Judge Dread comic collection from the 90s, which i traded with some guy on an art course i was on for his Megadrive collection from when he was a kid.
    He had lots of Import games and i was over the moon with the deal.

    When I was about nine or so, my parents acquired our Odyssey2 console from my uncle; in exchange, he wanted a certain liquor decanter of my dad's. I remember much hemming and hawing about this among the grown-ups at the time, but to me, that sounded like a hell of a deal! And thus did the legend begin.

    My brother and I once traded some pot for about ten 2600 carts, a basket case motorcycle and some stereo speakers. This turned out to basically be our "summer entertainment project" back in 1984. By season's end we had the motorcycle running, and I had mastered 2600 Miniature Golf, Video Pinball and Spider-Man.

    Moving a broken tredmill down a flight of stairs, assembling a new one and then moving that one up the stairs.

    That work netted me a gen mk1 and a bunch of games.

    Uhh, that was the LAST thing I mentioned, & the only things exchanged were money, milk, & PS1 games.

    :P

    A few rusty trombones, a few Cleveland steamers, the occasional salad tossing, and a Dutch oven.

    I kid, I kid. I hooked up a guy's Atari 2600 once and he gave me a loose Swordquest Waterworld. Good deal, huh?

    I hear you there! Those drug addicts will sell their mothers down the river for some illegal drugs! But that means good deals. I traded a quarter of some decidedly uninspiring marajajuana for 10 - 12 boxed/complete SMS games and a nice Power Base Converter. I only paid $20 or so for the broccoli so I was very happy on that.

    Last year I traded a bunch of SNES games for the electronics board out of an RC car. The kid in my class needed a new board and I wanted the games. He didn't use the games and I didn't use the car, so it was a very good trade for both of us.

    I have traded:

    Food: Monster Cereals, Vintage Kool-Aid, Rare Sodas, and the odd KFC dinner.

    Toys:Old Star Wars and 50's board games. Usually major toy collectors have Classic Gaming stuff.

    Pop nostalgia: Tastee-Freez glasses, Coke Memoribilia, and once a Kermit the Frog phone.

    This was years ago, back when I was a trading maniac.
    Lick me! LICK ME!!

    almost forgot: not weird, but very good deal. a friend was just getting into classic gaming, and getting rid of his xbox stuff so I traded him a NES arcade joypad thing for spiderman, some cabbella game, spy vs. spy and halo for the NES joy pad. all of them were scratched but halo. cabbela even had his brothers name carved in the back.

    I've traded an SNES found in a burned storage building (yellowed, no hookups, no controlers, but worked) for $10. Then the next day bought an original Panasonic 3DO with one controler for the same $10 bill.

    I've traded two porno tapes for a small box of common NES games.

    I've cleaned out a garage for the original Genesis system box and NES Powerpad box.

    I've bought Laserdisk players as well as RCA Selectavision players found at flea markets. Sold them to ePay and used the profits to spend at the same flea market.

    I've fixed a guy's computer (formated, loaded win98/drivers) for a boxed Sega 32X and a Sega CD.

    I've Helped the clerk at the local thrift store move some microwaves and VCR's for a small stack of Nintendo powers.

    I could keep going, but I'll let someone else take over.
