These guys are nuts.

That being said, a few weeks ago I found a shrinkwrapped Simply Cosmic at a thrift store, and bought it for $3.25. Put it up on the marketplace for $20, and it sold the next day. Who did it sell to? This guy. So I'm pretty sure he will mark it up about 600% as well...

Is it out of print perhaps? Weird.
I bought a new game just a few months ago.
It's still untouched... maybe I have to sell it!

I've noticed that their prices are ALWAYS pretty much double or higher than the market price (in this case, more like 3x). I think their business model must just be buying games that other sellers have listed for cheap, and reselling them at ridiculous prices, although I highly doubt that they actually sell anything at that price.

Apparently that's not the wildest pricing this outfit can boast. "Trolling" for "Toads" indeed! I wonder how many they uncover? This is one of the more egregious examples of market exploitation I've seen, but I say that probably because I have no idea how bad it's getting out there...

My guess is that they're not exploiting the market very much. I've been tracking a few of their items, waiting for them to get sold...and they never do; they just sit there until they expire, and then get relisted. Poking through their feedback, I've only found one of their OOP games sold to someone.

That's so cheap, I may even fly over to pick it up when I win it.


With a quoted shipping charge of $51.29 to the UK you won't need too many great deals like this to make it worth your while.

Well, perhaps my faith in folk's common sense can be restored here somewhat, but it still begs the question: What are they thinking?
