gen16.jpg So, we noticed the folks at The New Gamer commenting on our write-up of the insane Nintendo garage sale find, but in the process, they mentioned: "we are actually planning on starting up the whole game saling report again, and even have the seeds planted for the first thrift-based article of the new year. Until then, our "drunksaling" archives are still available."

So, it turns out the archive is of Chicago thrift/garage sale game hunts, originally inspired by the DrunkGamers site, hence the name, and it's lots and lots of fun to look through - for example, this article from last summer, with tres amusant comments like: "The following sale was ..terribly ambitious, including horribily worn scales selling for $40. Overpriced? Certainly. Did they care? Apparently not."

There are also wholesome lessons derived from each visit, for example: "Lesson of the week: Assemble a list of the games you already own, and make sure to note the condition. This will save you the trouble of buying duplicates, or passing up games you thought you owned but don't actually already own. Case in point: the acquisition of Starfox, a game of which I now own two copies of." So basically, this is almost as much fun as actually going! Looking forward to this year's batch...
