For the first time ever, we are listing some of our excess inventory here on our website. We are coming to the realization that we have more arcade games and pinball machines than we really need for all of our future plans.
So this is our first attempt to offer some of this excess inventory for sale. Here is how this list works. This list shows the current condition - physical and working condition - of most things. Some games are fully working and "restored" and ready for retail sale. Those will be listed with only a Shopped and Working price. Some are working but not yet "restored". Some are not working. For non-working games AND working games that have not been restored yet, we will list a price for them "as-is," and optionally a price for them working AND restored. There are some that we just don't want to spend any time on, and so those will only have an "as-is" price.
Our preference is to sell games as-is in most cases because we are already too busy, and don't have a lot of time to fix and restore games for buyers. We will do it in some cases, but you will see that there is quite a premium in some cases for this reason.
There are more and more resources out there to get parts, service, and other help with games, so you shouldn't have much trouble finding someone else to help repair something. If you need guidance, we can share some of our repair connections.
Also, this list is probably not going to be kept up to date very well, and it is subject to change at any time without notice. We may raise or lower prices, add or remove games, change game condition, etc at any time...things are always changing around here. So just because you see a grail on this list at a certain price, don't get excited until you contact us and confirm that it is still available, still in the listed condition, and still at the listed price.
Another note. These prices are based on someone coming here and picking out one game. If you are interested in several games, these prices will be discounted as follows: 2 to 5 games: $50 off each. 6 to 10 games: $100 off each. 11 to 20 games: $150 off each. More than 20 games, handled on an individual basis - just contact us with your list and we will come up with a price that is fair for both of us.
BELOW THIS LIST, THERE IS A SECOND LIST. This second list is a list of games that we have plans for and do not want to sell. But they are not our most important games for our plans, so we are listing them and allowing you to make offers if you really want them. We will most likely reject your offer, as we have plans for these games. But if you want something bad enough, make us an offer we cannot refuse. Everything has its price...although there is actually a third list of hundreds that we will not even accept offers on, just to save everyones' time and emotions. (BTW, I know there are some titles on both lists. That is just because of how we allocate things in our inventory. Some games we have multiples of, so we need to keep some and will sell others. Therefore they end up on both lists).
HOW TO MAKE AN OFFER OR AGREE TO PURCHASE A GAME OR GAMES:
Your best bet is to email me (John) at: firstname.lastname@example.org. The second best bet is to text me at 309-287-1725. If a discussion is necessary, you can attempt to call me at the same number. However, I am often too busy to answer calls. Or am away from my phone. You can also attempt to message me through Facebook messenger or other ways, but this is not recommended as there is no guarantee those will get to me in a timely manner. I rarely check those other places.
If multiple people are interested in the same game, I will base the winning party on who contacted me first and told me they would take it.
Well, here is the First list - the one with prices. Remember, this is a work in progress...
