Weekend Gaming Score: The Motherlode in 30 Minutes

Submitted by on June 28, 2009 – 4:15 pm8 Comments

I went to a flea market today, and came back with a number of great deals, which I really didn’t expect. I’ve got games here for NES, Super NES, Sega Genesis, Windows (that was an accident), Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance. I even managed to find the unthinkable: an original Nintendo NES system for a mere ten dollars. I expected it to be broken, since these usually are, but planned to fix it an resell it for a lot more on eBay. I was surprised to find that no, it’s not broken after all. I’ll still refurbish it before reselling of course, but what a deal!

The NES games were everywhere at this flea market, and that’s great for me. I have a working NES for myself and any I find for cheap I can bundle with refurbished systems and make bank on eBay. A Game Genie and Solar Jetman came with the $10 NES, I threw down another $2 for Top Gun: Second Mission. Another table sold me Double Dragon II and two copies of Blaster Master for a dollar each. For the Super NES, I grabbled an exellent boxed copy of Gradius III (alas, no manual) for $5 and an excellent cartridge-only copy of Starfox for $3. I paid $10 for the box of ten Genesis games, which was the six Sonic the Hedgehog titles, Frogger, Mortal Kombat, Taz in Escape from Mars, and Tom & Jerry. For Game Boy Color and Advance, I paid a combined $10 for Rocket Bomberman, Pokémon Puzzle Challenge, and Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku. Thinking it was the rare PS1 version, I bought The Next Tetris for Windows for $2. Oops.

How was your weekend shopping?

    Nice score! I wish my NES still worked. No amount of blowing or alcohol rubs have seemed to help it out.

    Drop me an email. It doesn't need a cleaning, it need a refurbishing. I'm sure we can work something out.

    I saw a sealed NES for $30 in a local gaming store. They have a bunch of any NES games, too, but I never really looked at them. I do have a Sega Genesis for which I have Sonic 1,2 and 3D. Lets see, I have The Jungle Book and some soccer game for NES too.

    Oooooo, Pokemon Puzzle Challenge. That was pretty sweet. It's a GBC Panel de Pon clone, in case anybody is afraid of the pokemon license.
