I was about to give the same tip, though a gentle rub with your thumbnail is also quite effective, and use your thumbnail to remove any permanent marker scribbles from the outer case as nail varnish remover here sometimes leaves you with a little dull spot - but it is quite easy to remove these marks, and if that little bit of effort is going to give you a half-price game then...

I'd only have half the games I have now if I always bought full-price
