The swap this past weekend was a very big success, but because my house is a bit of a construction zone at the moment, my favourite photo spot is unavailable and it’ll take me some time to get everything fancied up for a post about all of that. In the meantime, I just wanted to quickly share a photo of some Pokemon/Mario games I got a few weeks ago and forgot to include in the previous post.
I answered a classifieds ad that had a bunch of DS games listed for only $5 each. I normally have the expectation that most of them are going to be Hannah Montana or Nintendogs, but sure enough in this particular lot, there were some good, classic games waiting to be scooped up. I managed to snag a copy of Pokemon Platinum, Pokemon Pearl, and New Super Mario Bros. for $15. Because the woman selling was purging some other games as well, she offered us two fold-up cases for loose games and three plastic snap cases as well. I think we only have a total of four loose games for DS, and they’ll settle into these quite nicely.
It was really great to see the two Pokemon games come with their manuals and inserts, but unfortunately the Mario game didn’t come with any of that. Everything was in really nice condition, and I’ve practically doubled my DS collection with this purchase. Not too shabby for a cool $15.
Hopefully this will tide you all over until I can rush these construction folks out of my house in a few days. I’m pretty anxious to tell you all about the swap!
Thanks for reading!
