Our Clearance Cave is open every weekend, and you can bet it’s open for this one! You can snag new and pre-owned games, books, magazines, comics and more in the Cave, for just pennies on the dollar.

We are happy to process trades of any size during this event, on a first come first served basis.  Whether you have one or two games in hand or two hundred games in a lot of hands, we’re in.

If you have a very large volume, we suggest emailing in advance to help expedite your arrival and quote. We may wish to unload your trade at our receiving bay side rather than through the store doors, for your speed and convenience.

Very large trades may take some time to assess. There are also tons of things to see and do in the Madison area if you wish to do some sight-seeing while you wait, we are happy to give you a call when your quote is ready.



To offset your gas for the journey to our Castle, we will be offering the IRS mileage rate of 65.5 cents per mile. Mileage will be determined by Google Maps distance from your home address to our doors.

We will cover up to 15% of your trade’s value when you accept the trade. For example, if you traveled 100 miles, we would pay up to $56.85 extra when your trade’s value exceeds $379.  (15% of $379 is $56.85)   If your trade-in’s value landed at $300, we would pay $45 extra!
