Another pretty decent day!

We've been seeing an unusual amount of NES stuff lately. In our last three outings, we've seen (and bought) more NES stuff than in the entire 2006 season. We had to ask if they had any old videogames (as we didn't see anything out on display), and the guy running it told us he had a big box of them inside. The box contained everything in the $10 bundle you see above, plus a PSX with no games. We offered $5, to which he countered $20. We offered $10 without any of the PSX stuff, and he bit. 40+ games means we paid less than a quarter per game, without taking any of the hardware into consideration. Not bad!

We've learned that you can never really trust sellers when it comes to quantity. When we asked about videogames at the sale in which we got the Genesis games, the seller responded "Oh yeah! I have a TON of Sega Games inside! Like...13 games!" 13 games is not a ton, in any situation. So whenever you're at a sale, and the seller informs you that they just sold a "ton of games", keep that in mind. It's usually nothing great.

Nothing really out of the ordinary today in terms of stories though. No rude sellers, no crazy salers.
