Found a woman selling a RBION for $400 on Facebook.
I asked "are you absolutely sure you're asking $400?" She replied "yup. Kids don't play it anymore, and I want to paint the room."
Thinking it's a scam, I do a bit of Facebook stalking on her. Turns out, she's one of those "desperate housewives." Filthy rich, and wanted to get the game out of the house.
Now, I do not under any circumstances condone taking advantage of anyone, and I don't want to sound like I was trying to do so here, so I replied yet again "if you're indeed selling the game for $400, I'll take it. No questions asked."
She replies, "Please do, I want it gone. Here's my address: 'xxxxx' just get here by 5pm because I have a dinner date in NYC."
I say, "on my way." (She's 2 hours north of me).
While stopping at the bank, I check with her again that the deal is still on. I certainly don't want to drive all that time for nothing. She says "I think there's a problem. Probably not worth your time."
I say, "if it doesn't work, I don't mind. I can fix them!"
She goes, "no, my husband just told me he'd rather keep it now. Sorry, I hope I didn't waste your time. Glad I caught you before you were too deep into the trip."
I said "No worries. If you decide to sell it later, please let me know." She finally responds "I will! Thanks." And that was that. Had I been more local, and quicker, I think I'd have had the game in my basement; but alas: it was the game that got away.
