It is.

I don't know for a fact if they're still around. If they are, I'd be happy to send them someone's way. I don't even have an AppleII anymore (who does?), so it's not like I'd miss them.

Let me know about the Mixed-Up Mother Goose when you get a chance to see if it is still around.

One more. The last big one for a while.

Now I can make a new installer for the collection. If I could only get a hold of the Anthology or even just the loan of it to make an installer for it, too.

Collector, do you mean this anthology?

Because I have that. If it's the right one, PM me.

I got this in pristine shape for $2.25. I already owned this three times over, via the various collections, but I did not have a standalone copy. Though some of you that had this may be aware of it, I did not know about the very faint skull on the cover that can only be seen at certain angles. I have enhanced it to show in this scan:

I didn't know that! I haven't a standalone copy, but only the last collection... but now that I know of this peculiarity I want this release! :shock:

No, because I live in the USofA and can't get my hands on the AGI of PQ1 either. It's PQ1 and SQ1 (both EGA) that I am missing.

Very nice game by Al Lowe. It was supposed to become a series, but that plan got scrapped unfortunately. He made it just before LSL7. As a matter of fact, there are several references to Torin's Passage in LSL7 and Torin even has a cameo role in it.

Hi all.

Thought I would share my first acquisition. :mrgreen:

I think I did alright for 25 bucks, however I must say I was a little concerned as the seller wouldn't take a pic but told me it was mint. Well its definitely mint that's for sure!

As a side note, I had forgotten how small these sierra boxes really are! The shipping box it came in was tiny!!! I was thinking to myself before opening... I hope its just not disks and a manual.

Anyway, Onward to look for the others ;)

Congratulations, sneek! It looks to be in good shape and from what I can tell, complete.

Been waiting quite a while to find this one. They sell these crappy budget releases from "Sold Out" all the time, but here's the original box: Pharaoh Gold, the UK release. Can't believe i ran off with it for only US$4.5.

Image

Question: i know there is a US box of Pharaoh AND CLeopatra aswell. The front cover looks like the Pharaoh box, but it has a sticker on it (something like "Cleopatra expansion included"). Is there any difference from the original Pharaoh box, aside from that sticker?

Cheers, mate.

Hopefully I will be able to score a few more deals like this :)

Another one to be scrapped of the list: Codename Iceman

Image

He was also selling Manhunter 2: San Francisco. Even though the disks don't really look like Sierra's, i picked it up for only $2.5 and it can get shipped combined, so you can't really go wrong with that.
