Vintage Game Shop is a game about using your knowledge of retro video games to make a profit!

Everyday, people will come to your shop to sell you vintage games, consoles and memorabilia. Your goal is to buy them as cheaply as possible, so you can earn some money when you resell them to another client. As you earn more money, you will be able to buy more rare and expensive items until you can complete your collection!

Discover the games, learn the prices, don't be afraid to negotiate and maybe you'll complete your own video game collection!

This is a list of each item in the game "Vintage Game Shop". Each item's name corresponds with its name listed on the "collection" page in game. Each name is followed by the item's functional value or the amount of money you'll get if the item is not broken. Next is the number of days until the item will be sold, which is placed in brackets. If the number is zero, that means it will be sold by the end of that very day. Next and last is the nonfunctional value or the amount of money you'll get for selling the item broken. This number is surrounded by pound symbols and is equal to one-fourth of the functional value.

Occasionally I'll jot down a few notes about what you should usually try to offer, but you shouldn't stand by these too much. O is for how much you should offer first, and B is for what your final blowout offer should be. Best is for my personal best offer.

The list is a little farther down below, but you may want to go over the strategy first.


There are two kinds of items: Regular Items and Valuable Items. Valuable items are items with a functional value at or above $250. Regular items are everybody else. Your main goal at the start will be to buy and sell some Valuable items, but you will probably find yourself selling a lot of Regular items first. Late game, you won't need to bother with any regular items at all, and just focus on Valuable items. Valuable items are marked with a star on the list below. Later game, you'll only need to buy items above $500 or $700.

SECTION A: When someone offers you an item, ALWAYS TEST IT FIRST, then offer them a little under half value. (if its $20 offer $9, but if it's anything higher then offer them 37.5% of the value. For example, OoT is $400, and 37.5% of 400 is 150, so your starting offer should be 150 on OoT) Then offer them the same amount again. If the second time they say "You know it's worth more than that!" then go to section B. If they tell you they're changing the selling price or tell you they're keeping it the same, then go to section C.

SECTION B: You offered too low. Try offering 10% higher or so. Once they start telling you they're changing the selling price or that they're keeping it the same, go to section C.

SECTION C: Keep the price the same until their patience is at 2. Then drastically increase your price by 20% for the final offer.

~I have no idea what I'm doing~

Start a new game and spend all of your money on everything you buy.
~Shut up and Take my Money!~

To earn this medal you must have $10,000 at once. Yes, you actually have to see your money counter at $10k, we aren't totaling all of the money you've ever earned. Once you sell a Nintendo-Sony Play Station, pass all the offers unless you can see a star before them on this list. Those are the only items worth your time because they're the only ones you can get any real money from at this point. Of course, you could just hope and pray that you'll get another Nintendo-Sony Play Station while passing over all other offers if you want to go that route.


Well that was an interesting game it was interesting I like the "GRAPHICS" and like how it responds well, theres a good "AI" with this game and I was pretty impressed with it as a whole, the medals were pretty nice. as for improving well it was fine as is a good game you have created here.

as for improving well it was fine as is a good game you have created

Hi, I've tested it, and the game works fine of my end.

As it uses Flash, I guess your browser is simply blocking Flash content, preventing you to play the game. Do you have a bar on top of the screen telling you "For your protection, Adobe Flash Content was blocked" or something like that? If yes, please press "Authorize" / "Activate" / "Enable Content" or the similar button.

Please let me know if you are still having issues.

This game is definitely a fun way to pass the time and the only reason I didn't give it a full 5 stars, is because it's impossible to remember the actual worth of everything and costs too much to keep consulting the expert. I fixed that problem by writing them down as I went so that I could keep track. Other than that, it's a really good idea and I love it!

Would be really helpful to see how much you sold the same item for in the past rather than relying on your memory and your customers who all think their 90's gameboy games are worth three times what you could even sell them for. I like the layout and the higher emphasis you put on learning about video game console history, but trying to get a fair price out of customers is extremely difficult. It would be cool if paying for the expert's help had any sway over their original position, because having the secret knowledge about the actual worth doesn't really help when they won't budge.
