Before I bid - is anyone here bidding on it? I don't wanna try to out bid someone on the forums. If someone's bidding - let me know. Otherwise, there's two or three I am interested in.

Nor I. I already have each of those games. The only thing that I would be interested in would be the hintbooks, but I think that it will go for more than the hintbooks alone would go for. That take care of the two biggest competitors on this board (maybe two of the three, if you count Andy).

I estimate it will go for well over a hundred dollars. Individually sold, they'd cumulatively go for over $200, so $100 would be really cheap when all combined in one auction. You could always get lucky of course...

I was interested, before I thought how much the bidding will end up being, and I certainly don't have that kind of money. So no, I won't bd ;)

I am going on the idea of getting lucky! But thanks for lifting my spirits and hope Andy! You're a gas to have around sometimes! :lol:

EDIT: Already at 32 bucks and climbing. Nevermind.

Seems, when you look at them all - he (she) had a pretty solid Sierra Collection. And the boxes (from the side) look to be in pretty good shape. Can't help but wonder why they're selling.

Hopefully not a sad story of them needing money. Tis always a sad reason to sell off a collection.

Either he needs the money or he just got married. :P

I won't be bidding because I have most of the games, and the ones I do not, don't interest me too much enough to want to figure out how to install and play them. :)

You do realize you're on a website/forum called Sierra Help right? Kind of our specialty here? :lol:

More like, the games themselves didn’t interest me. As for the installation part, I have the worst luck installing games. I was surprised that GK2 installed perfectly the other night with Collector’s installer. I think it was the first time since the DOS days that an installation was done completely successfully! :P

The first auction went for $158.62 and the winner is a member here :) (no, not me). He also grabbed 2 of the other auctions. Nice to see them end up in good hands.
