Cool Place for New and Used Games and Consoles...

Postby Newtotown » Sat Nov 17, 2007 7:54 pm

Hey all,

Anyone here been to Play n' Trade on University Ave?

(3308 University Ave Madison - (608) 442-4263)

The the sweet thing about that place is that they let you try ANY game, new or used, in the store to see if you like it... I have never seen that in a store before...

I just found this place not too long ago, and thought I would mention it...

Thanks,

Matt!

Yes, I have been there. Locally owned too, so my dollar doesn't go into one of the big box stores or GameStop. Selection is decent, and regular tournaments are a good idea. Though, I'm a competitive gamer myself and can never make it to their saturday afternoon events since I'm also in auto sales and saturday is my busiest day.

The only thing I don't like about the place is their rather annoying grassroots web advertising. (IE posts on craigslist and in various local forums)

Zac!

It's insanely overpriced compared to PrePlayed or Ebay.
I checked them out the first week they were open and at the prices they have used and new games at I don't think they will last too long.
