9/10 Got screwed out of the house I wanted, still selling this collection for down payment funds.  Total cartridges for sale is between 380-390, probably closer to 380 as I need a few for some friends and projects. 

Any interest out there? I would be willing to part with it in amounts of 15 carts or more per pop at the going rate of $5 per cart and I will cover shipping, Canada will need to pay some of their shipping charges. I would be more glad if someone would take up the task of completing this massive endeavor, and if you do I will send some of the money to NA to keep this great site going. 

Will sell all current stock of 380+ for $1500 shipped to US, Canada must pay their own shipping due to the expense.

How the mighty have fallen in the midst of the battle! Good luck on the sale man. Maybe if you change your mind, you could build a new house out of them.

Man... if you knew you had to sell for a downpayment, why'd you go after this set? There probably isn't a  lot of demand for 400 DW carts all at once.

Eventually everyone has to stop what they are doing. And focus on things that matter more. if it made you happy for awhile then I guess it was worth it.

No, this isn't what you do.

What you do, is buy the house, and re-do the roof in DW carts.

Precisely.  It still makes me happy, but I have my priorities and most people that know me know that it isn't games.  I still love them but I need a new house more.

Perhaps the down payment was more than he anticipated and you guys are being giant dicks?

Unfortunately you probably won't get anywhere near the 4.75$ you're asking. Anyone that'd be buying that many would be doing so with the hopes of reselling, most likely via a store somewhere.

Good luck!

Sorry to see ya end your journey early, Spacer.

I'm assuming the down payment and house he was looking at was something more recent, rather than something he anticipated a few weeks/months ago when he started this challenge. Good luck on the new home sir! I hope everything works out best for ya!

Lol... it's probably for the best.
Imagine if you had 1000 of them, and THEN realized you needed to sell them.

We're all crazy for our respective collections. I can't call you THAT crazy for what you were trying to do considering what I was trying to do... but you were pretty crazy trying to do that

If this were 400 Mega Man 2 carts....,.

Good luck on the house

This is going to really tough to move. Dont know if someone has anything close to that much and wants to carry the torch. Goint to be really tough and this is exactly why id be hesitant to do something like this. Is there a game dragon warrior makes a good donor for? You may be able to get half of what you paid if that were the case.

Turns out I got screwed out of the house. Someone else offered more which is part of the game. Which still sucks but that's life. Overall though I will still need this fundage for a more sizeable down payment so I am still selling the massive DW collection. Total cartridges for sale is between 380-390, probably closer to 380 as I need a few for some friends and projects.

Any interest out there? I would be willing to part with it in amounts of 15 carts or more per pop at the going rate of $5 per cart and I will cover shipping, Canada will need to pay some of their shipping charges.

sucks but you'll never recoup the costs of those games.

You'd be better off just selling them on ebay for like 7 a pop (free shipping) and just let it ride. I mean, if these games are what stand between you and a house....you aren't ready for a house.

I choose to sell the games for the purpose of a down payment. I am more prepared than you know, so please keep the opinions to a minimum.

Bump for a good guy and I'm sorry you have to part with one of your pride and joys of your collection (well almost 400 of them). Good luck with the house!
