The Gamers` Market every March or April in Asakusa, Tokyo
You’ll be surprised to see the whole collections from the antique simlations
from Avalon Hills to some brand new ones both from the largest makers
and some Komike Otaku fellows. I was really surprised to see Gundam Seed
RPG and Saint Seiya Card Game created by those fellows.
You may also be surprised by how the prices may rise in some auctions
of games, such as Gamers’ Market. It takes place once a year in
Asakusa,and you see quite a good collection of the kinds of rare games
(from the points of view of Japanese gamers), which may be dealt with for 20,000
or 30,000 Japanese Yen!!!
I think some Japanese gamers, especially collectors, treat those games
as antiques. Maybe we should ask games production companies to be
long-lasting in their products.
