Christens this thread with a recent small score.

I found a SNES game for a non-stupid price at a thrift store and its a SNES game I've wanted to add for my collection. That alone sadly counts as a score now-a-days. I paid about $25 for everything.

My son... gives me Helpful Nintendo Hints that are far too complex for the adult mind to comprehend. Here's a verbatim example: "OK, there's Ganon and miniature Ganon and there's these things like jelly beans and the miniature Ganon is more powerfuller, because when you touch him the flying eagles come down and the octopus shoots red rocks and the swamp takes longer." And the hell of it is, I know he's right. - Dave Barry

A small score, indeed. Kirby's Dreamland 3 for the SFC. $16 shipped. Ha, I like how sparkly it is. Part of my recent efforts to expand my Kirby collection. Trying to finish the North American releases and get the Japanese ones, as well. Taking it slow, though.

That's a pretty-looking game.   I got Super Deluxe locally a couple of weeks ago, and Uchuukeibitai SDF on the way. Glad to see more HAL love.

Right?! I like the label a lot more than the one we got here. I have Super Star, but I still need to nab a copy of Super Deluxe. I'd never heard of that second game, but I just looked up some footage, and it looks rad! How'd I miss that one? Seems like a pricey Famicom game, but gotta love HAL. I'll try it out on ye olde Everdrive.

Minor score at a garage sale within yards of my old house today.

$13 bought me a Genesis Model 2 console, with 2 games and 1 manual, an Atari Flashback with system, box & joysticks, and a PS1 system with original box, which I can combine into a near complete boxed set.

the only mod I might do is a new screen. definitely gonna get a new lens though and hopefully that black stuff and crusty black stuff comes off.  bought it from ebay from a seller named "play-japan" who has some really good deals on game boy , GBC , and DS consoles in various states of disrepair.
