I was kinda freaking out for a bit, but then something popped in my head. Earlier in the week I got to have an online conversation with one of my good friends who is currently in Navy training. I remembered him saying: "I found you a cool present the other day and its in the mail." So I get the package inside, open it up, and I find this:

Now I'm sure none of you really know this but I'm a huge Mario Party fan. Ever since I was a kid I've gotten the newest version, but I never owned the first one because I started with Mario Party 2. I had been looking for this game for a good while now, because I didn't really want to drop too much money on it. So I was quite ecstatic when I opened the package and saw this game! Really cool of him to do that, talked to him again today and looking forward to busting this game out when he comes home on leave.

So I finally own them all! They aren't all complete or anything like that, but I'm happy.

Mario Party 3 is the hardest one to get CIB AFAIK, so if you want to own them all CIB you have a good start.

That's actually the first game - the box is a weird one like that. They put that giant 3 on the dice block so it kinda looks like it blends in with the title. So not as much of a start, haha. Someday I'll work on it, but for now I'm just happy to have them all.
Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one who loves the Nintendo e-Reader.

Then I saw Chrono Trigger.

And all was well.
Rock N Roll Racing was a nice find, too!

Meh, it goes for $20 on Amazon. Everywhere I go to on the internet and otherwise sells Chrono Trigger for $60... pretty crazy, considering how much cheaper the PS1 version is.

Oh, and that was an awesome stroke of luck you got on the CIB MP3, other guy!

I found a close to mint, Simpsons Arcade Cabinet that is 100% for $450. I'm pretty excited as I pumped a lot of quarters into these as a kid. I see these going for $1000-$2000.

Now, I just need a way to get it up to Canada from Rockhill North Carolina. Any suggestions other than driving down to pick it up? Anyone know of any reliable, somewhat inexpensive ways to get it up here?

Maybe caddy corner it and grab a white stool and throw some posters/paintings up.

That's the room that it's in at the old owners house. I need to get it to my house. But ya, I thought the same thing. :)

:lol:

My fault,long day..

Im not sure how to get that thing up to Canada for N.C maybe Roadtrip for it is your best bet.You said it normally goes for 1000-2000 since you can get it for 450 used the savings for a journey to the states.

Shipping a Simpsons cab is going to run about $275-350 in the US to another US location. To CAN is going to be a bit rougher.

So did you already buy it? Simpson's cabs go pretty quick when they are available. Not quite 1-2K, but $450 is still a very good price.
