Your lamest Grailswaps

Post by Sunder »

We all have that one trade or purchase that we regreted the most.
I'll start with mine.

Twinkle Star Sprites for TMNT, Snow Bros and Bootleg Knight of the Round. This was when I didn't know better.

Semi serious note- Not holding on to my Bitcoin.

Joke note- any time I've sold a shooter under pressure (friend hookup or financial/space concern). Sold a lifeforce cabinet (restored) for $250 a few years ago because I didn't want to separate the board from the cabinet. Buyer parted it out lol

Was pressured into selling my Vimana PCB for 700 SEK only to see it flipped by the seller a month later for 1200 SEK. He claimed he was a "big fan". A big fan of a quick buck.

I once transferred from Metro South to Old Detroit station. I had to work for a living down there. Not one of my brightest trades.

Traded my US Dig Dug, Pac Man, Nibbler, US Neo Geo 4 slot (NW) and a Tekken (NW) for Tempest and Escape from the Planet of the Robot Monsters.... sometimes I think it's a good trade, sometimes I think it's a bad trade - depends on the mood I guess.. :)
