Our town held its biannual townwide yardsale, so we decided to venture out, knowing this would probably be the last chance we'd have this season.

The NES score came at one of the last sales of the day. The son, who was about our age, said he had N64 and NES games when we asked, and we said we were interested in anything he had. He only brought out the NES games, which we were glad of. We've picked up a lot of N64 games, and are really more interested in NES stuff. Anyway, we offered $5 for everything. He was hesitating, and sort of countered with $10. We stuck to the $5 offer and finally he said ok. In the car, we took a quick look over everything and saw a good chunk of titles we didn't own yet, which made the score even better. And the per game breakdown worked out to be 12 cents!

We scored the Donkey Kong Country video at the second sale of the day. We had asked the woman running the sale if she had any games, which she apologized and said she didn't. As we were walking back to the car, she called after us and came down her driveway with the video. She said she just saw this and thought we might be interested in it. She said we could just take it, and handed it to us. We thanked her and wished her luck for the rest of the day. Back in our old haunts, that would have never happened. The plus with the video was Liz had it back in the day - it was a preorder bonus for Donkey Kong Country - which at one point was donated or given away. It's always nice when things come back again. This happened back in 2006 with the free Nintendo Power magazines.

We had a fun morning and it was nice to be out yardsaling again, especially that we didn't come home empty-handed! Now the plan is to start getting our game room going. We'll probably start sometime in January (once we get through the wedding, honeymoon, and holiday season).
