I use Collectorz to inventory my games, but the games are priced by the American market. Is there a UK equivalent?

We looked at a variety of apps and websites, but couldn’t find any that offer value tracking based on the uk market. App developers out there: how about including this option?
I’d be interested in the best way to clean the cases themselves. I collect Master System games and am always worried about the things I’m using in case they damage the plastic.

For plastic cases like those, you shouldn’t have a problem with plain washing up liquid and water – the important thing to remember is to get a paper towel under the flexible sleeve (where the printed insert would go) while it’s drying, otherwise the water is trapped and takes forever to dry. if you just need to remove stickers and labels, products like AF Labelclene are effective.
