Spam, spam, spam, spam... No, no, not the Python kind -- the e-mail kind!
IMPORTANT!!! Both my computers are completely out of whack at the moment and, as a result, I have not been able to get to any of my e-mail for the last few weeks. I apologize to anyone who has e-mailed me in the last three weeks or so, especially Stuart Feldhamer, with whom I was in the middle of negotiating a trade. (Sorry, Stuart!)
I should be able to get back online by sometime next week and will answer any e-mail from traders (apologies included) then. Please know that I'm not trying to ignore you! Sorry for the hassle.
Back to the regularly scheduled comments... First and foremost, if you e-mail me about a trade you will always receive a reply.
If I haven't replied to you within a day or two, please e-mail me again. My e-mail acts up once in a while and I probably didn't get your first one. Even if we don't end up trading, at least you'll know where you stand and can pursue other trades. Also, please include your user name or a link to your page in all trade offers.MY AVAILABLE LIST:Generally, I prefer to trade,
but if there's a price in the value column, I have no problem selling it for that plus the cost of shipping the game to you. If you think my listed price is too high, make an offer. If it's reasonable, I'll probably accept it.If you don't have an established trade history and good or better ratings,
I'll probably ask you to send first and will ship within 24 hours of receiving your game(s). If I'm selling a game, I will always expect payment before I ship the game.
I accept payment via PayPal, if you want to use a credit card, or you can send a money order or personal check. (If you pay by personal check, I'll wait for it to clear before shipping.) Trade
means I'd prefer to trade that game for something comparable in condition and value from my Wanted List. If you have a game to offer that's not on my Wanted List, mention it anyway -- I'm also always willing to check your Available List, if you don't have any of my Wants.
I often find games that way that I didn't know about and would be willing to trade for. (Don't be surprised, though, if I already have what you're offering -- I have quite a few games!) If you have nothing to trade and really want one of my "Trade" games, I'll consider selling if you're willing to make a fair offer for it.!!Trade!!
means the same as the above, but I'm less likely to sell or trade for things not on my Wanted List. It won't hurt to ask, though. The worst I'll do is say "no, thanks."Please read my game comments for version, condition of game components or for extras included with the game. Also, all games are on CD-ROM, unless stated otherwise in the game comments.
If you have questions, feel free to ask for a detailed description of the condition of any of my available games. I try to be "too honest", rather than not honest enough in my descriptions. If I say it's "excellent," it really is.If you're trading for one of my games on 5.25" disks or low density 3.5" disks
and you would like me to put it on HD 3.5" disks for you, I'll be happy to do that -- Just ask. I also test all of my games on disk before I list them for trade, so they should all work. Just in case, though, it wouldn't hurt to ask me to check the disks again before I ship them to you.
I try to do that anyway, but sometimes I forget.BTW, all of my Macintosh/Windows hybrid games have duplicate listings for the correct Windows requirement.
That's just so the "Match" feature works better. All of them work for both PC and Mac, but the PC requirements are either Windows 3.1 or Windows 95 and up.MY WANTED LIST:Games on my Wanted List must be in good or better condition and include the box, all manuals and other game media originally included. In the case of older games, I am looking for the original or very early releases of the game, not white label, budget or "classics" releases.
I will sometimes buy/trade for reprints or games that are missing boxes or some of the contents, but only if it's a game that's very hard to find and I won't pay or trade as much as if it were complete or original issue. I prefer Adventure and/or Puzzle games for the PC,
though I sometimes play RPG's, too. Action/Adventure is OK, too, if there is a good plot and a reasonable amount of thinking required, not just shooting/fighting. I'm also interested in old Apple][ games in the same genres. I can play both 3.5" and 5.25" disks for either PC or Apple][.The "$" symbols in the value column of my Wanted List mean that's what I would be willing to pay for a complete game in very good or better condition.
Obviously, the more "$'s" listed the more I'll pay for those titles, depending on their condition, of course. I'm likely to be pretty generous for games in excellent or unopened condition. These amounts are not definite, but you can use this as a general guide:
$ = Up to $15
$$ = $15 - $25
$$$ = $25 - $40
$$$$ = $40 and UpOne last note on the "$" symbols:
Often, when I add a new game to my wanted list, I have no clue how much it's worth. Usually, I've just read a review somewhere and decided to add it. I always start these games with the one "$" rating and then increase the $'s as I learn more about the game.
So, if you have a game that's rare and are looking to sell it, don't hesitate to offer it and ask what you really feel it's worth. I'm never out to cheat anyone, if I undervalue a game it's from lack of knowledge about it.SPECIAL GAME COMMENTS: Falcon Gold
