:) Regular DVD jewelcase...
Good thing Dino still works, I can check it out on that... Most pinball software runs flat for me now that I have an actual pinball table.

And thanks for remembering pic this time too.

However, do you really want to take a selfie with Larry? ;)

Of course! But I didn't have a physical copy yet - Dad gave me the kickstarter for my birthday and as such the game's on his computer.

That's really cool. I wouldn't mind picking up a physical copy also.

Recently bought this from a second hand advertisment in an online newspaper.
Rarely do Sierra games come along but perhaps once a year or so.

This one is still sealed and although English comes with German instructions as well (from what I can tell from the sticker)
Paid about 15$ for it, not so bad considering its still sealed.

Are sealed ones like this worth more?

You can probably get more on eBay if it is sealed. My copy of the Collectors Edition is the NA release with the greenish teal box. Outside of international/non-English versions of the games I do not know if there are any other significant differences in the contents between the two versions. If you decide to open it I would be interested in knowing the box contents and what files are on the discs. For example, are there different demos?
01000010 01111001 01110100 01100101 00100000 01101101 01100101 00100001

Sure Collector, I'm not as fanatic as others *cough cough Rudy* about pristine, sealed Sierra boxes.
Haven't planned to open it just yet, but I most likely will do so in the future - will be sure to fill you in exactly whats inside and contents of the CD files too, versions e.t.c.

Not sure if this is completely the right place to post this, but GOG is having a sale on Sierra Quest games:

Actually it'd be this thread (which I posted it there a little before you!) But no harm, no foul! :D

Ok, thanks :)
Of course you'd have to point out that you posted it BEFORE me. Bragging :P

LOL! The way I see it, the more folks post it, the more people see it. :)

Only those who seek a metal, care about coming in first or second. I am just happy with finishing the race I set out to do, no matter what I place. :)

Further expanding the FPS series and grabbed a bit lesser-known Hoyle in the process.
