Discovered a really nice duo of Infocom ZORK titles...

Not sure if this is the right one as the GB cart I found was called Battletoads in Ragnarok's World.

Very happy with this. Picked up the boxed set for £4.99 from Cash Converters.

Game, Camera, Stand, Mat are all present and as a bonus, 152 cards + the function cards were in there too.

Does anyone know what the 30 included with the set were?

Went to a community garage sale today and in amongst the dvd's I found this treasure. It was in a Windwaker case, which was also quite a surprise to see, considering I just shelled out $60 on Amazon to buy a used one for my son for his 18th birthday! Paid $2!!

My son is loving it and playing it as I type!!

Edit: it was SOOOO scratched that I thought it wouldn't work. I tried to access the 20 min Windwaker preview but it said it couldn't read it, so I was super happy that the other games on it actually work!

I know. You think I'm making these up. Nope. Just the 4th one to come through this St. Vinnies lately. Brain age game and excellent console with manual. No cord. $20.00 this time.

Some day I'll actually sell these.

Then I went back to the same savers today and found a gamecube to GBA link cable in the original packaging. I have found about 4 or 5 of these still in the package on my adventures, i'm really surprised so many have made it to donation like that. $2.99
