My daughter's Christmas Present turned into a gift for me

I used to love to play the game Mall Madness.  I remember when I moved out of my mom's house, she had asked if I wanted it but at the time I didn't.  Now I wish I would have kept it.  I think Big R would love that game.

I have been looking for a reasonably priced Mall Madness but its been hard to find.  I want the 1989 version, since that was the one I had when growing up.  I finally found one today on ebay that had all the pieces and was in good working condition without being too expensive.  I didn't want to spend more than $35 but that was a bit unrealistic.  Most of these games in good condition sell for $50 or more.  I found one that was $49.95 with free shipping.  I offered $40 and my offer was excepted!

I had been pretending this game was going to be a present for Big R.  But who am I kidding!  It's really for me.  I know as soon as I get it in the mail I won't be able to wait till Christmas to play it with her.  So I decided that instead of buying it for Big R for Christmas, I was just going to buy it for myself!

  1. Oh my goodness- what a flashback you just brought on! I had this game as a young teen and I remember playing it for hours with my friends. So glad that you found one! :)
