Flack, I would have expected better jokes from you, like "If it's not a Frogger, it's a run down knock off."

You now have zero. I consider the matter resolved, thank you.

Face it, I just don't get on Discord. Tried it for a while and it's just not for me.

You tried it at least five times, apparently.

The only person that could justify buying this would be an arcade/barcade owner at this price. Once you manage to memorize all the moves and beat the game, you will never touch it again!

It's a true, rare collectible. If I made double my salary or something, I'd be in the mix on it. There's no denying Space Ace or Dragon's Lair just take over the room when running.

I would like a Tron but Discs of Tron even more. I’d give 1000-1200 these days for either if “working but minor issues/needs a monitor”

PP is PP. Better to pay 300-500 for a standup. These things have some mechanical issues that can get pricy.

There is a Kosmik Krooz'r for sale locally. I won't go into the drama behind it.

In 2013, a guy put a "ridiculous" number of $3500 for his at CAX, as I detailed here: https://www.caltrops.com/2013/07/19/cal ... reme-2013/

The ask for the one on denver CL is $15,000. I don't think he'll get it, but it's crazy to see the price increases at least for asking prices.

Argh. Decent looking Missile Command for $1350 . 28 miles from me. Need to sell something to get the money and the space for it, so I dunno. :/

(link to a Missile Command on craigslist.)

It was NOT 28 miles from me, it was 50. Freaking Waze. Anyway, that Missile Command is now mine!

I am selling my Mr. Do! project. Giving up on that one.

Mortal Kombat 2 listed for $1800. I really want it but I do not have the money or the space. I should make a list of games that I ultimately want and who gets out so I can move games & money around when something like that gets listed. I'm definitely leaning towards "games I'd actually play" and that post by Pinback made very clear what is a "play game" and what is a museum piece.
