They do know "Draconian" colloquially means harsh, right?

Nonetheless, that looks like quite a lot of pc games. May have to check it out.

Visited this store via their ad on Craigslist.

They have a large selection of games for consoles and pc along with some fun swag from special gaming events. I picked up a Mentats container from Fallout and a Grim Fandango shirt along with some Atari 2600 games.

Be advised that this is a private collection previously kept in multiple storage units that they are now selling so the prices do seem inflated.

For example, I paid $30 for the Grim Fandango shirt, $4.99 for ET, $5.99 for Wizard of Wor and $7.99 for Yar's Revenge, all loose. Frogs and Flies was the only Atari game I paid $2.99 for which is more accurate to current worth.

These items were not priced and the owner stated that he has just opened and has not yet had time to price items so he required some time to "research" the prices online before giving me a total. He also ran my card through some service that required him to type my info into his computer which felt needlessly sketchy. He did not appear to have malicious intent, more of a lack of organization, but it's certainly not the ideal way to have your card taken. He told me it declined and I pulled money out with the same card from a debit at the 76 station next door.

The store itself is fun to go see and all in all is impressive in it's inventory, so I would say it's definitely worth a visit and nice to have in Snohomish. Just go with cash if you have any privacy concerns and be prepared to do your own research on what a fair price for games is.
