Count me as one of the ones who emailed about Pinbot as well. Checked this thread figuring someone was bragging!

Offering someone more than asking is never the way to go. Not only does it drive the price up for everyone, but any seller who has an ounce of common sense will take one look at that offer and it will either turn into an auction or the price will triple.

That's hard to support when the machine in this case likely went to someone who did exactly that. I don't disagree that it creates a new set of circumstances, but an under priced game in a competitive market isn't likely to be had for much less than its actual value.

In this case the seller posted at midnight without a phone on a weeknight. So there's certainty that other interested parties had time to see and respond with their own strategy.

I can't be certain I was first in this case, but had to be close, in responding 20 or so minutes of posting late on a weeknight, and I didn't even get a call, just an email noting late afternoon the next day that it was sold.

I didn't offer more, and that's what brought me here to see what other's do in this case.

IMO manadams has the best advice, ask for the opportunity to match other offers. Yes it tips of the seller to their mistake in pricing but only barely ahead of the swarm of other interested parties. At best it garners you favor as more interested and fair. Unless you can get a committed sold and the add pulled someone here or even outside is going to be there with a bigger offer.

#2404 2 years ago

The only way I've gotten a game off craigslist is by offering more, and I completely agree that it sucks, but unfortunately that's the way the market is nowadays. I haven't been able to buy one off craigslist for many years, and I always offer more than they are asking on the good deals and still have missed out on the games recently. Time I found is better spent doing other things than refreshing craigslist, used to be worth it, just not anymore...

#2405 2 years ago

You weren't even close to first if you didn't see it for 20 minutes. There were probably at least 10 people ahead of you. When I get deals like this I usually ask the seller (after the game is in the car) about demand, and they usually say that 10-15 minutes in they are ringing off the hook.

Quoted from jalpert:

We'll never know but I'm basing it on that the add went up at midnight on a Thursday night. Definitely agree there's a lot of people looking.

I'm probably wont' stop looking, I enjoy the hunt even if I miss. But ultimately it will help to keep missing so I can just buy the game I want vs getting a deal on one I just might kinda want. I like pinbot but would rather have Jakbot or Bride.

Great feedback from this group. Appreciate the advice.

Another Craigslist gem...

denver.craigslist.org link

"Hi, so we have received some threatening messages of extortion and blackmail, regarding some games we listed on Craigslist.
The person is sending messages with the name " mikey gabbard"
There is a current ongoing police investigation into this matter and we would like anyone with information to come forward so that the police may prosecute this individual. If you have received an email with the name Mikey Gabbard, or know who is using this Fake name, there is a $1000 reward offered by us for arrest and conviction."

"For the fagglipps that's flagging my swords of fury add I want to thank you , while u where flagging my add and I was re listing it , it sold today , this is what's happen when you try to fuck with me and my karma world , I'll rip your fucking asshole apart son !

You will find freaks in the dark corners of this hobby. Heck some times you don't even have to look. I find similarities with the needle issue on the 16th street mall.

sounds like a nice guy

#2422 2 years ago

That's the guy that doubles the prices of his games the day after he buys them.

#2423 2 years ago

You can find the guy listing his stuff on Facebook as well.

If this doesn't make you feel confident about show up at a strangers house with a pocket full of cash, then I don't know what will.

They've been hovering around 7k or slightly less lately. Might be tough going for 8k right now.

I think all the new games coming out soon combined with summer being slow caused a few people to try and sell quicker than usual. I'm digging mine but it is a really different kind of game, not the standard game formula--probably shrinks the pool of buyers as well.

Is the Spectrum game on Craigslist anyone here?

$3500 seems way too high. What's it worth?

I would be interested in it for $2000 +/- how it looks in person.
I think it would be a nice paring with Xenon

Is Denver Craigslist usually this dry for 90’s DMD? I’ve been checking daily for the past couple weeks, and there’s hardly anything available.

Maybe a few more titles will pop up after expo?
