Hello everyone ?
My name is Jordan, I'm 28 years old and I live in a small town in Northern Ireland called Ballymoney.
I've been an on and off forum lurker for a few years now. Yesterday I was clearing out a few old things and came across my old N64 console in its original box and my Gamecube. This came as a surprise to me as I thought my parents had flogged them off years ago in a car boot sale haha

Anyway I have came to the decision that I'm going to start a collection and thought I would join in on the fun and share my journey with you guys ?
For U.K. members are there any other places bar the likely eBay/cex where I can buy games etc?

Thriftshops, retro game shops, game markets (if any are organised) and on sites like e-bay and the app Letgo, I would say :)
Shops and dedicated markets/cons for games really know their prices though, so be prepared to pay full price for your cartridges there!

You're so lucky finding one boxed! Have fun collecting!

Cheers man :) I've been having a look round online and stuff so I'll look into those suggestions, heading to Belfast is probably my best bet for retro game shops but worth the journey! I'm fairly sure I have a few games tucked away somewhere for both systems so I'll have to have a harder look later :D

Thank you everyone for the warm welcome :)

After a couple of busy days with work etc I've finally got two days off so I'm now getting round to getting some pictures of my recent finds :)
Going to go hunting around attic space in my house and see if I can find anymore games I may have

I love finding stuff. Somehow, it's even more exciting than the holidays.
