Indy Auction (September 15, 2001) 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.

    There were finally a couple of games there I had not seen in quite a long time - Discs of Tron and Wacko. DoT I own but I've not seen one at auction. Wacko I played the hell out of as a kid - think of Concentration made into a video game and you've got the idea. Of course I played it there at the auction and while it was fun it was not quite the same. Oh well, I know where it went if I get the itch to play it again. Since I said "Hopefully, a Sinistar or Discs of Tron will show up at the next one" and DoT DID show up, let me again hope a SINISTAR shows up at the next auction :)

    As with the last auction of the previous season, there was a lack of cocktail games. Only 5 there, and they were all in pretty crappy condition. I'm still not sure what the Ms. Pac Man Plus was in actuality. Many dead games, many flaky games, including the Pac Man I bought - video worked when the auctioneer was selling it but afterwards was not displaying video. Urgh.

    I got to meet a lot of new people and worked up a good tired from a 14-hour day. Thanks to Troy, Seamus and the rest of the guys for helping haul my Pac Man home and of course the Hooters trip. Don't forget to keep an eye out for a Star Fire ok?

    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.
