Happy Best Amiga related bargain

I just picked up a mint condition copy of Cadaver for 99p from my local second hand games shop!!
It even has the original certificate inside which was supposed to be sent to the Bitmaps when you completed the game.

How about a mint A1200 that wasnt opened up... it was hardly used and the box was perfect! it even smelt new!!! *All the warranty envelopes were still there aswell LOL!

i got an a500+ fully boxed and in the same condition with 2 amitek external drives - again almost as new and boxed!
loads of disks! a huge collection of boxed games that looked as if they came from a shop that day! they were perfect in every way... i got mice, joysticks, leads... everything was boxed and looked after so well it looked as good as the day it was made...

The guy wanted a quick sale so I walked out with all this stuff for 15 quid! Ive never got a bargain like that since and i doubt i ever will first thing i did was crack open the 1200 and nabbed the board for my tower stupid me i wish i left it alone as it was totally original!

Hmm, its not amiga related but bargain wise its my all time best, i brought a zx80 still in its kit form unbuilt in its box from an old lady down the street from me for 2 in a garage sale she was having. A few years later i listed it on findit.co.uk and got 280 for it!
Not only this but the guy that brought it off me was the managing director of a company called MikroPower Ltd. who build SMP graphic design workstations, and from a personal sale of the zx80 to him I ended up with a 19.50 an hour job!

Who thought a spectrum could accumilate me so much wealth!

Cool Best Bargains

I picked up the Psygnois rerelease of Chaos Strikes Back and Dungeon Master from a car boot sale for 50p. I also bought the early (purple box) version of Dungeon Master in as near as mint condition as possible from America for $26. Well I reckon it was a bargain. Manual and box are in superb condition and it even comes with the original FTL sticker unused. The game doesn't work unfortunately. I also picked up around 30 to 40 Amiga Formats from a car boot sale and the guy wanted 4.00 for them. They were in a huge (bloody heavy) box and were in amazing condition. Most of them even had the coverdisks still on the front cover and even the original throw-away adverts you usually find inside. It looked like they had hardly been touched.
