Finally broke my dry spell. Picked up a compilation (that I'll need to submit) that included four games for $2 at Turnstyles, so 50 cents each. CD-ROMs only but look like they were never used.

This was the first one.

Risk for Sega Genesis - $5 at Goodwill

Out with the kids for the afternoon. Stopped at Goodwill... No boardgames, but did find two electronic finds... First Risk for Sega Genesis, which is fun because my family is already knee deep in Risk after getting Risk Legacy recently and playing Risk Factions on Facebook.

Second, I also found a scan converter, which allows you to put VGA output on a TV (composite connection).

Not the game itself, but the Original Soundtrack for $3.99 at Goodwill.

Discs have no scratches at all and the slip cover and insert are in excellent condition!

I threw this in while driving home and fondly remembered chomping down on jelly beans and playing this game back in high school. In particular, Laguna's fight theme always reminds me of Jelly Bellys.

EDIT: Sold for $43.99!

I stopped by a Game Stop that I rarely visit today. They were clearing out all their Game Boy Advance stuff for 75% off. I usually would never post my retail finds but these were pretty good and I thought other people might want to know about the sale. I stopped by two other Game Stops on the way home and neither one had any GBA stuff, too bad.

They were all cartridge only.

1st Game - $2.50
