chitime.jpg After we posted a delighted article about their previous thrift store exploits, also picked up by a few other outlets, we're pleased to see that The New Gamer's motley crew have started their 2006 'drunksaling' campaign in Chicago.

It's explained: "Unitdaisy and I were so inspired by the (now defunct)'s garagesaling adventures that we decided to follow their example and searched about Chicago, scrounging for games and, when we were done, forced others to relive our experience. For those unfamiliar with the term drunksaling, it's simple: It's kamikaze garagesaling for video games! The following excursion took place on June 3rd, 2006."

And a doozy this first exploration for 2K6 was, including a bizarre faux-gothy estate sale, a mauled coconut monkey ("Who stabbed you in the chest and stole your sweet, sweet life fluid?"), oh, and actually some video games too, including a stand-up Joust cabinet (NOT bought, how dare you guys?), and some Sega Pico games ("The Sega fanboy in me says 'Buy, buy, buy!' whereas the part of me with a glimmer of sense says 'You'll only stuff it in the closet.'). Dude... but that's what closets are for!
