Wow, now that's good info! I've only used Craigslist twice (first time directed me to this wonderful site.) Secoond time was when I picked up my Lynx from a guy close to my parents house, turned out he had loads of games and systems, I cleaned him out, lol!!

I've had some amazing luck on Craigslist.  I have dealt with six different sellers and never once have I ran into a dud. Some of the highlights include buying Turbografx games from former NEC employees and more recently, the emporium of video games in Indiana where I made several return visits, which is how I got most of my AES collection (I cleaned him out).

For sure, that guy's collection was a retro gamer's dream! I know Alex has had some great CL experiences.. along with some not-so good ones.

I have to say craigslist has been a way of disseminating vintage games directly into my claws.


BOZZ, I understand your complaint.... However, have you tried posting ads looking for whatever it is you are looking for?  I am almost always surprised in how quickly someone responds with tons of goodness.


Yesterday, I was looking for some soldering help with a drum machine's volume PCB, and I posted at like 10 pm or something, and like less than half an hour someone responded who lives 3 blocks away!


Post an ad for retro games and see what happens!

Another thing I hate about the CL is the flagging.... I get some of my posts flagged, no matter where I put them, dealer or individual, items wanted or in the video game section.  Most of the time it is not shady or anything!

I know it is from low lifes, who have nothing better to do, but I feel that it fucks with my Chi.(spelling?)

its also done if they do not like how low your pirce is on an item that they are selling as well. If I'm trying to sell the same item as you, but your asking lower than I am, Flag. I don't do that, but it makes sense.
