Hello, NA Family,

Well there are members here that have a NTSC Stadium Events Nes game.  I know this is the most rarest, most intriguing game to posses and many that have owned in the past
probably regret releasing the game.

So the Question is what does it take to get a Stadium Events game?

- Is it Money?  If so how much?
- Is it Trade? for what Value?
- Is it Luck?  Meaning flea markets, goodwill?
- Or maybe its passed down from Family? So Lucky...

For those here that one,  I believe the NA Family would love to hear your stories about how you scored the greatest and rarest Nintendo game Ever!

V/r

Money is your best bet. Unless of course ZJ's are your thing

I think you just need to be in the right place at the right time with a wad of money when one comes up for sale. Either that or be willing to make a good offer to someone that you know has one. And I second the ZJ approach.

it certainly isnt the rarest, and definitely not intriguing. I'd consider it as being more of the holy grail "must have" if you want a complete licensed collection. And with that, theres only 2 ways. Luck beyond all kinds of luck, or Green Backs.

The people who have it already are probably not going to give it up if they have full sets, especially if they paid top dollar, as that means they won't have a full set anymore. So any amount offered would have to be high enough to overcome that situation, either getting them a new one down the road (after it inevitably rises in price) or allowing them to collect something else.

Just finding one for sale on the 'Bay or elsewhere is luck. They only come up once or twice a year, whereas other rare carts come up for sale more often.

For NWC carts, it's like that times five.

Bought one at open auction in 2009(?). If you have the money, you can get one whenever you'd like.

Well, I got mine in a trade.

I personally believe Stadium Events to be a $4,500 - $5,000 game right now but I traded away around $6,200 worth of my collection to get it, and most of that value came from one-of-a-kind items in my collection, so it's not *just* about the monetary value of the collectables either.

You'll sooner find a gold coin than a copy of Stadium Events at a flea market or garage sale. The game is legitimately rare.

Finally, you can either put up a Bounty for the game above the "current price" to get a collector to let their's go, or you can wait for an open auction (at least one or two a year) and pay fair market price for it (whatever that may be that week).

Also remember, the game *is* World Class Track Meet with a different title, Bandai logo removed from the stadium screen, and a 1 pixel tall line at the bottom of the stadium graphics in the background, and different packaging...also one has a box, the other doesn't. It truly is a collector's item only, and nothing more...a better collector's item would certainly be a sealed Super Mario Bros. in pristine condition, or a Nintendo World Championships grey cartridge.

-------------------------

Got any of these for sale? Sell them to me. I also buy other NES Publisher inserts, and even GB/GBC, and SNES inserts too.

Maybe Twilight can give me some bits to buy one of those Stadium Events! (just fucking around). I am curious to read stories on how some of you came across your rare games. My best story is just my ps1 disc copy of Bust-A-Groove at Goodwill for 99cents.

Here's an ethical question about Stadium Events. If you do happen to stumble upon someone with the game. No matter if it's a yard sale, flea market, pawn shop etc... and they don't know it's worth and they sell it to you for say $5 do you buy it and quietly leave? because they don't know it's worth and didn't realize to research that, give them more than $5 and tell them it's worth more than that?

Ethics only apply to communities. Out in the wild, it's all fair game if the person choose to be lazy and just go oh another NES game $5 dude.

Ask if they will do $3 on it.   o.O

There is no ethical concern there. If someone asks a price for something and you pay that price to obtain that item, everyone is happy. Now, if that person came to you and asked what the value of the game was or something like that, then sure, there could be some ethical concerns, but paying an asked price for an item isn't.
