Gary Gygax – Take a moment to reflect

Today marks the 4 year anniversary of the day Gary Gygax left this world. Please take a moment to reflect on what he has given gamers everywhere. Gaming has added so much to my life and I strongly believe that without Gary and other industry pioneers we would not have the great games, community, and camaraderie that is gaming. At GenCon 2008 the convention held a moment of silence for Gary, where the entire exhibit hall was silent for over a minute. Everyone stopped in their tracks to pause and give tribute to a great man. I have never seen a convention so quite, or still. It was a humbling experience. I had the pleasure of meeting Gary Gygax in few years ago when Jumpgate, our small local game store, had him as a special guest at one of their Games Weekend conventions here in Portsmouth, NH. It was great being able to meet him, and as a teenager who was playing the games he created it was an honor. I have a picture of Gary and I from that event somewhere and will find and update this post soon.  Thanks to Gary for all he has given gamers everywhere, and thanks to Jumpgate for allowing a young gamer the opportunity to meet this legend of gaming.

Video Game Trade Ins

As I was organizing my DVDs/Video Games over the winter break I found a few that I know had not played or touched in years. I decided it was time to get rid of them so I loaded up a bag and brought them over to my local GameStop. Some games I got a decent price for, but some only warranted .55 cents or so. Geez to think I payed $50+ for some of these and they are now worth next to nothing. I also found out though blind luck that Best Buy is not doing game trade ins. They give a better price for popular games than GameStop from what my research shows. I added a tip to the local Portsmouth Best Buy’s Foursquare profile to help others find this out. Add it to your to-do list today! Check out more about the program which also takes old electronics too at http://www.bestbuytradein.com/ Now to see if I have anything else to get rid of to make room for more board games.. Share...
