  • I want to build my own arcade controls!
My husband has recently passed away and Ii have a couple of Megatouch Arcarde games that I really know nothing about.  Can someone help me negotiate this site to find out where and how to list them. 
Thank you so much!

You're in the right sub-forum.   ;D

A few suggestions to help you get a fair price:

1. Add your location to the subject line of the original post. i.e. [Omaha/NE/US]
- For many people, it's not worth the expense, effort, and risk to pack and ship these systems cross-country, but they would be worth picking up if you're only an hour or two drive away.

2. Post some pictures.
- There are several different models of Megatouch so shots of the exterior, serial number plate, labels on the PCB or HDD, and screenshots can help us narrow down the model/software.
- Helps buyers determine if they are in "mint", "home-use-only", "survivor", or "barn-find" condition.
- When you're posting, click on "Attachments and other options" under the text box to attach photos.

3. If you don't specify that the systems are working, offers are likely to be based on the non-working value.
- Bonus points for powering them on and posting a "proof of life" picture of the attract screen or game play.

GLWTS.   :cheers:

First off, sorry for your loss.

Second, your best bet to sell them would be on Craigslist or OfferUp. Expect to get lowballed. You need to decide if you just want to get rid of them, or if you think they’re of value and want to make money off them. I sold one in the past year for $200, and that was a good deal for me.
