Todays Car Boot Bargains.. Or are they? Let me know!

Post by kiniki » Sat Apr 22, 2006 2:18 pm

Today was the first Car Boot in my area this year.

Managed to grab a Master System 2 with Sonic for £2. Wonderboy for Master System boxed with instructions for £5 and Retro Gamer issue 1,2,3 & 6 for a quid each... still with the coverdisks attached...

So guys.. how did I do?

I thought I couldn't really go wrong with a Master System for £2! And I heard Wonderboy was a little rare!

Wonderboy? Who was talking about Wonderboy? He was probably talking about picking up Retro Gamer issue 1 for £1. :wink:

There's maybe 10% of SMS games that go for more than £3 in PnP. Wonderboy is one of them, you'll be paying £5-6. So yeah, that's about right.

So yes. Not bad.

Retro gamer 1 for £1 though? Wonder which censored sold that.

Funny actually as I didn't realise it was the first issue at the time.. I know they were the old ones because of the covermount... So I thought I would grab all the ones he had and see what I ended up with.

It was only when I got home that I noticed it was issue 1!
