Your answers are here and here.

I only knew because I had asked.

Yes. eBay, Amazon, and forums. You can sometimes watch auctions and then make offers directly to the seller if the auction doesn't sell. Also, it helps to be really patient. One thing I've learned is to never bid on auctions that don't have pictures of the actual item you're bidding on unless the text description is very detailed.

had some time to actually sit down and frame the prized item of the collection.

This is a sealed version of Softporn and it is also a copy that was passed around the sierra offices as a gag gift on x-mas, as Roberta Williams was the model on front cover.

I would want it just for the picture of Roberta Williams. I always thought she was beautiful.

The other two ladies are quite fine as well. :twisted:

I have a sealed copy of SQ IV on its way to me. Came close to getting sealed copy of SQ III also, but it went for more then I was willing to spend.

This is the first that I have found it with the box. Most copies seem to be just the Sierra Originals CD by itself.

Though not a Sierra/Sierra family game, the engine used in it was bought by Impressions and the 2nd in the series was developed by Impressions.

Did you buy from that seller?

I always feel their prices are way to high, they have bought about 10 things from me and then re-sell at 40-200% more.
