Anyone who has known me for any length of time will probably agree that I don't seem to like money very much. If I ever find myself with any extra cash on myself, I feel the need to get rid of it as soon as I can. Normally I will target this dislike of money towards electronic entertainment, which I have been known to indulge in now and again. So with Saturday afternoon left open with nothing to do, Ghibli_Geek and I decided to hit one of the local thrift stores. There's a thrift store not too far from my house, though their illogical pricing can leave you feeling just a tad annoyed at times. Case in point, this nice collection of Nintendo cartridges they have here.
|The good ones'll cost ya|
|$10? Well blow me down.|
|Oi such a deal!|
|If they're a little blury, it's because sucky games |
don't focus on my camera
With nothing having been purchased yet, I proposed that this would be a great time to see if the Mystery Game was still hanging around the Farmer's Market. Ever since laying my eyes on the non-labeled cartridge of wonder, I've had many restless nights. Just what in the world could it be? I had to resolve this one way or another! So off we set towards the local farmer's market. Strolling through the aisles I saw a box that held much computerized wonderment.
Having traversed the outer edges of the market, where people buy small spaces for a day to get rid of whatever junk they had, we never did come across the wonderful Mystery Game again. I guess I will have to learn to live without. Just for fun, we wandered the market a bit more, once again stopping by the guy who price gouges the bejeesus out of my pixilated childhood. Once game I was hoping for this time was TMNT 2: The Arcade Game, which I'd seen here previously. Once again, I was met with disappointment today as it was gone. BUT! There was something there that I was equally happy to find!
|The fun never stops at Monster Party!|
|oh god NOOOO!|
And thus ends another thrift trip. With Popeye weighing on my mind even more than the Mystery Game was, I think we can all agree that it will not be long before I run back there only too happy to pay their crazy asking price for a Nintendo classic. Until next time, happy game hunting!
