Long story short, me and my buddy took a trip down towards the beach for some thrifiting, and man did we go good, everything in this picture was roughly around 60 bucks, last stop of the day walked into a thrift shop and saw a stack of really nice condition CIB nes games for 7 bucks each, which I'm more than willing to pay for any of these, my buddy took the other half but these were all the ones I wanted the most, definitely has got me in the mood to start looking for NES some more, and I just doubled my collection of boxed games in one go! what an amazing day, and yes in 7 years of collecting I FINALLY found a Vectrex game, incredible.

Sweet score! That's an awesome find!

To the Finder...
The Isle of Koholint is but an illusion...
Human, monster, sea, sky...
A scene on the lid of a sleeper's eye...
Awake the dreamer, and Koholint will vanish much like a bubble on a needle...
Cast-away, you should know the Truth!

sexy! Some great titles there. It's been years since I've found a CIB NES game in a thrift store.

Nice! I got a lot of my boxed NES games from Goodwill. As I recall, Lolo, Lolo 3, Balloon Fight, Zelda, Link, Batman, World Class Track Meet (boxed Power Pad), Star Tropics, Faxanadu, 1942, and maybe one of my Mario games. Of course even the most recent of those was several years ago.  

I would’ve been STOKED with your find since I don’t have any of those boxes and might have an extra Operation Wolf box.  

Too bad Infiltrator isn’t CIB since it’s almost impossible to play without the manual. I couldn’t even figure out how to take off!

You know Dad picked those ones out back in the day. Vietnam games! I always think it's interesting when somebody's Game Paks are mostly Vietnam/Cold War games like Commando, P.O.W., Contra, Heavy Barrel, Rush 'N Attack and the ones pictured above.

I have seen lots like that in the past and didnt put two and two together, that the father who was possibly in Vietnam picked out the games. Interesting!
