    OT: Real-Life MF

    I have been scouring the Goodwills, Salvation Armies, and Thrift shops for some old games (for those of you who don't know, these are second had stores--people bring by stuff they are not using anymore and the place re-sells it and usually gives a certain percentage to a charity). Mostly ps1 games is what I was looking for. I really want to play Final Fantasy Tactics. This last weekend I went to a Goodwill and just as I was about to leave I decided to check one last bin. I pulled out a blue box and was shocked: In my hands I held an unopened Starcraft battlechest. I thought wow a person usually doesn't see things like this here. I checked the price: $2.99. For 3 bucks I got an unopened Starcraft battlechest in a most unlikely place. The Target down the street was selling the same thing for $25.00. Needless to say I was quite pleased, kind of like finding an SOJ. Not really expecting it, but real happy when it drops.

    Nice find. I got mine for $10 because the store had the price marked wrong AND had a sale on it. Would've been free if I knew about the rebate they offered...

    Heh, now you just have to pry yourself away from D2 long enough to play it.
    Good find!

    That's like pulling out a coat you haven't worn for 6 months and finding $10- in the pocket! :thumbsup:

    @ i_marsolek: Maybe you should take up "dumpster diving" too. I'm a true dumpster diver and you'd be surprised the good stuff people just throw away.

    I found a Sega Genesis, in working condition, with half a dozen games in the garbage. Apparently someone's mother was mad at them and tossed the sega out as punishment.
