    Gameboy Color Games

    So, I happened to find a used working Gameboy Color system at a yard sale for $3. It came with 2 games, but Marcus is not really crazy about either of them. I was hoping that I might be able to find him a few other games he could play.

    We have a pokemon game & a gremlins 2 game. He only plays the gremlins game & caught on pretty quickly. I can not afford more than $5-$7 per game right now. I found some I thought would be good, but they're $15 each & I just don't have that right now. He wants to play it, but is bored by the games.

    Re: Gameboy Color Games

    I've got Bust-A-Move Millennium. I thought I had a tetris game around here somewhere, I'll have to search for it b/c I don't see it right this minute. Wait, found it. Tetris is an original Game Boy game, but it should work in the Game Boy color. I know my son played them both on his Game Boy Advance and then on Gameboy Advance SP.

    I did search ebay. I did find some cheaper games there. But alot of the games I found that I did want to buy had very high shipping. The game itself would be $4-$6, but the shipping would be like $8.

    How much are you wanting for your games & how much for shipping. My zip code is 35120. This is awsome. That Bust a Move game looks really cute & like something Marcus would like.

    I am still open to a few more games to. Let me know what you have.

    Gamestop usually has a case of Gameboy games, from the Gameboy Color to the Gameboy Advance. There are, of course, usually far more GBA games, but I often see the GBC games there too. Checkout a Gamestop, for cheap GBC games.
    apparently, people put stuff here.

    $5 for each game and I'll cover shipping? Or $5 just for Bust-A-Move if you only want that one.

    Our Gamestops no longer carry any gameboy games at all. Only DS games. They said they liquidated all the gameboy games and won't take them on trade anymore. I was a little sad about this - there's some rather cool Mario games in either Gameboy or GBA format. But since the last 2 releases of DS won't even play the games (DSi and DSXL) they won't carry them anymore. And there's yet another DS coming next year, DS 3D that won't play them either. I think they shot themselves in the foot taking away the GBA slot on the DS: it's where the guitar grip for Guitar Hero went!

    That sounds good to me. Let me think on the Tetris game. I am not sure if he will like it or not. I deffinatly want the Bust-A-Move game though. However I am broke till Friday. Will you be okay with me mailing you a money order out on Friday after I pick up my check & get a money order? My paypal account went down for some reason awhile back & I have not been able to get in it since. It would be a Western Union money order from my store or a Postal money order. I can do whichever one you prefer.

    Thanks! I will get you the money order on Friday & mail it out. I think I will go ahead & get both of them. He will probably like the tetris game as well. If not I can always resell it to recoup the money I paid for it. I will send you a PM as soon as I mail the money order out. If you can send me your address through PM, then I will make sure to get it taken care of either Friday or Saturday morning.

    Yes, it's hard to find cheap ones! Our Gamestops also stopped carrying them. They only carry the advanced games now. There is one other used game store that carries them, but the are about $11-21.

    Sounds good. Oh, you know what? Try a pawn shop or thrift stores or craigslist. I've seen gameboy games in all those places

    Yes, I called my Gamestop today. They only carry the Advance games now. Which will not work with the Gameboy Color. If I have not found any more soon, then I will probably try to find an inexpensive lot with a couple of games he will like on Ebay & buy it. I can then sell the games he does not like to recoup some of the money.

    I will deffinatly check those places. I have been watching CL for about a week now & so far nothing besides one lady who had all pokemon games plus a system for $100. Not happening. But I will check thrift stores & pawn shops for sure. Thanks for those thoughts.
