Taking a side detour! One of my good pals is selling a few pricier games to me for a decent price.

Definitely going to be getting Gemfire, Uncharted Waters, Sqoon, and Young Indiana Jones Chronicles!

So not too long ago I got Chip & Dale: Rescue Rangers 2 for $165! Good deal on that one.

Now this month is a HORDE OF GAMES COMING IN.

Thanks to Gabu, I got Bram Stoker's Dracula and Ms. Pac-Man on stand-by (which will be paid for as soon as I get my checks, I swear. ). I also today picked up Athletic World (with manual!) for $6 at a used stuff store chain by chance for $6. My copy of Holy Diver should also be in the mail too! 4 games so far!

Plus my longtime collector pally of mine gave me a really good deal ($450) for 25 games I don't already have yet, consisting of:

01.) Bandit Kings of Ancient China
02.) Batman: Return of the Joker
03.) Defenders of Dynatron City
04.) Dusty Diamond's All Star Softball
05.) Fantasy Zone
06.) Flintstones: The Rescue of Dino & Hoppy
07.) G.I. Joe: The Atlantis Factor
08.) Galaxy 5000
09.) Hatris
10.) Isolated Warrior
11.) Little Ninja Brothers
12.) Magician
13.) Mig-29 Soviet Fighter
14.) Ninja Crusaders
15.) Paperboy 2
16.) Power Punch II
17.) R.C. Pro AM II
18.) Robocop 2
19.) Robocop 3
20.) Star Trek: 25th Anniversary
21.) Tecmo Cup Soccer
22.) Uncharted Waters
23.) Wizards & Warriors III: Kuros Visions of Power
24.) World Champ
25.) Young Indiana Jones Chronicles

There's also going to be a couple of other surprises, but I'll wait and take a picture of those when I get them. Trust me, this half-grand that I dropped is very, very, very well worth it.

That's a total of 28 games I"m waiting for (29 altogether counting Athletic World which is in my possession) which, once I get them all in, will make for about 110 games left to get and that's it.

Let's make that an even thirty then!

Package should be coming tomorrow with the big loot. I also got the Holy Diver now, so that's a great bonus!

Once I get everything, the count should be 646. I still have $10 in credit in a used game store so if I find something there that's cheap, I can do that.

Ending the year at 650 games should be a cinch.

Well I got really lucky today and found Moon Ranger for $110 on eBay just kind of checking the listings.

That's about $60 less than my asking price, AND it comes with manual! I doubt I was going to find it go that low again (especially where it's been going around the $180 mark at least), so get it I did.

That'll be Game #647. I highly doubt Racermate and Secret Scout are going to go down that easily though. Will probably look to tackle those next year though.

I ALMOST got you Holy Diver from the local indy videogame store, but given what I was seeing it looked like a reproduction copy (most certainly don't recall any NES cart being black), so I held off. Thank goodness, amirite? (Also, they were asking for at least $80)

Yeah it was very, very likely a repro copy. The officially licensed copy that I got from CastleMania games is actually white! I'll have to post a picture of that sometime. Been having some weirdness lately with collection sites.

Also despite me saying that I'm taking a break, somehow a FUCKING STUPID CRAZY deal popped up for RacerMate Challenge II and I maaaaaay have put in a bid that may net me the game, one of the adapters, and a top-loader NES all for $99.

If I happen to get sickeningly lucky like this, does anyone wanna buy a top loader from me? ;;
(REJECTED! Oh well.)

I decided to go for a few cheap games to round myself up to the 650 mark! Ordered Ultima: Quest of the Avatar and Joust. Then I put in an offer for Desert Commander, so once I get 650, I'm gonna take a little break for a few months because I need to bump myself up back a little more financially after last month.

RacerMate is going to be a thing I buy once I get my tax return. So I'm gonna keep my eye on that one a bit and see where that goes. So that one is kind of...on the top but not unless I get a really sick deal I can't say no to.

I'm still gonna keep my eye on prices though, as I can have a bartering baseline for, since I'm not exactly rich person! I'm starting to keep it for every game now, since I only have about 100 more left to go (103, to be precise).

And with that, I'm gonna make sure I do a bang-up job with 2019! The goal by the end of 2019 is to get to 700 or more.

(EDIT: Just got Desert Commander! Whoo!)
