Indianapolis USAmusement Auction (November 2, 2002) Pics


  Just to let everyone know - I am in no way associated with US Amusements' auctions, nor are the games pictured in the Auction pages of my site mine, except as noted ("MINE! MINE! MINE!, for example"). I occasionally sell my own games there, or buy new games for my collection, but that's the extent of it. I would have thought that was perfectly clear, but apparently there's a number of folks out there who think otherwise.

    To be kind, I've only loaded poor-quality thumbnails on this page. Click on the picture to take a look at the larger, clearer image, then hit your "Back" button to come back to this page.

    It's that time again, USAA auction time!  Lots of entertaining pictures below. Again, few of the prices are posted - I could only stay for pictures and a few of the misc. junk items at the beginning. Thanks to Hans O for providing the prices I do have here.

    A couple of general notes: 1. Lots of sniper/shooting games. Normally there are quite a few shooters, but TWO Silent Scope 2 games? Looks like yet another sign that the sniper panic on the East coast has traveled to the Midwest.

    This auction's front-runner for the Bad Conversion award: my vote is the Gauntlet-to-Vindicators game. Ick. 

    See if you can spot all the conversions in the below pictures, and send me an e-mail with your vote for the worst conversion of this auction. I'll start a running feature, and the conversion that gets the most votes from each auction will go into a special "Hall of Shame" section on the site. Check out the previous auctions I have pictures from on this site and submit candidates from those as well. Just make sure you tell me the picture name (right click and look for the "View Image" or similar option, it should tell you the file name) and which auction it's from. Submit your entries here.
