Treasure Hunting

I've not managed to pick up tons of stuff again this week, encountering a total failure to find anything worth buying in my hometown. Work was a different matter, I hit paydirt in one of the Charity shops, scoring 14 Master System games, complete for 99p each.

Golvellius: Valley of Doom
Black Belt
The Jungle Book
Castle of Illusion
Desert Speedtrap
Alien Storm
Submarine Attack
Ace of Aces
Terminator 2: Judgement day
Robocopy Vs The Terminator
Gain Ground
Captain Silver

Oh, and a MB Pac-Man boardgame (1982) for £1.99

Week: £15.85
Months total: £143.81
Year to date: £278.36

Treasure Hunt

The quest for goodies this week met with a bit of a failure in the quantity department, but a huge success in the quality stakes. I did my normal weekly trawl of the charity shops, coming up trumps at the start of the week, but a BFZ (that's a big fat zero for you DOOM fans) today.

Game Boy
Burai fighter Deluxe
Ghostbusters II
Wizards & Warriors X: Fortress of Fear
Double Dragon
Solar Striker
The Amazing Spider-Man

Now not only are these boxed, but they also have the little plastic bag for the cartridge, the Nintendo poster, the manual and the registration card, and I paid £3 for each of them.


Final Fantasy VIII

Not particularly impressive, but it's in better condition than the one I currently own, and it was £3.

Playstation 2

Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence

This one is a bit of a cheat actually as my friend Paul picked it up for me when it became available in his hometown. This week was the first time we'd been able to co-ordinate the handover of game and money, so a big thanks to him for that. £35

Months total: £127.96
Year to date: £262.51
