Thrift Store Finds


Recommended Posts

Bought a lot of Intellivision games on Goodwill, mostly commons but I needed Thunder Castle and Slam Dunk.

As they were pictured, there was a cart I could not see that I assumed was an Activision cart, but as it turns out....


DEFENDER!  Are you kidding me?   Sometimes you get lucky fellas.

On the way to the post office this morning i thought i would stop by the thrift store next to the post office. I am looking for gun games for the NES and rick had said to keep my eye open for gotcha! And it was the first one on the stack of NES games


The football GC game i found on the floor near the clothes and i asked how much and they said just take it. Woo!

Yobo, like Hyperkin (Retron), makes (or made, they may be out of business now. not sure) new, cheap systems that play NES and SNES games.


I think yours may have come from this one.
