my latest ebay copy for a TMNT game:

Cowabunga! If you buy this awesome game it will be pizzatime for aspro!



This is Konami's (cough cough, I mean ULTRA Games) version of Teentage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the Commodore 64.

Box and discs are in good shape. Check out the photo's to see that everything is still there.

Manual is complete, with anti piracy page. Note that the manual has been colored in at some stage, probably while waiting for it to load, which is why I have heavily discounted what is other-wise very good condition item.

Discs have not been tested recently, I do not have my C64 hooked up.

Even so this is a brilliant colectible in good condition.

When you post it, use a pizza box for shipping.

I sent out some games to someone the other day using a Converse Chuck Taylor Shoe box. I hope they appreciated it, but left no feedback Sad

I sent out two other orders in $300 speaker boxes -- they probably thought I was livin' large on my old game sales.

Update, I am up to about $1100, averaging $31 per item. Which means if I kept going at this rate I'd make $82,000. (And lose my soul).

It's always useful to know the price of another's soul.

The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst  
Are full of passionate intensity.

So you selling your games slowly destroys the soul of a poor hobo.

Truly despicable. Hrm

Throw in a used condom and see if you get feedback then. LOL

He didn't disclose the price for buying a soul, he just noted that he'd probably lose it before selling his whole collection. Quite the negligence.

Better yet, throw in a wrapped one. Like how when the missus orders clothes for the kids from specialist niche stores, they often add a balloon or stickers.

Then next time your buyer gets some, it can be a pleasant conversational intermezzo. "ooh, a new flavour? Feisty!" "Yah, I got it free with this c64 game I bought from this nice bloke. He sent it in  a box of some fairly expensive speakers." And from there it could then go either way really.

Unless dealing with an oligarch who has diluted their soul to near worthlessness, purchasing a soul is rarely a question solely of money. The combination of monetary and sentimental value contained in his post is enough information for any seasoned trader of souls to come up with an estimate. Admittedly, the fact that he has laundered his soul in a hobo makes things a little more difficult, but for any expert it should be good enough for a solid ball park figure.

better still, poke holes in the wrapped condom and he can be responsible for a new life. Thus regaining his soul.
