I have that SQ1 copy in excellent, but I'm extremely jealous of that Hero's Quest.... :(

I think all I need for the classics are Space Quest 1 EGA and Police Quest 1 EGA.

I have just about all of the Sierra games in one form or another, but many are just part of collections worn or incomplete copies and some that are just the media itself without packaging or documentation. I am trying to replace these with the best standalone versions that are complete and in good condition.

I have all the classics in some form or other. But for whatever reason, I desire having original packages of the classics.

Collector, I'm going to track down your house, steal into it in the dead of night, and gleefully grab armfuls of things. I'll find my attention caught by another terrific item, exchange it for something else in my "hot games swag", pause, undecided... and in the morning, I'll be caught red-handed.

What a horrible end!

I need to replace my Black Cauldron. I lost that in one of my many moves.

I just received it in today's mail. Sent in a thin envelope, and the seller certainly overcharged massively on postage (it cost $3.00 and she charged $12.30), but if the game installs and works, I'll be happy.

I envy you that complete Black Cauldron - I have the game but I am not sure it's a legit copy. I certainly don't have the box. I will try to hunt up a definitely legit set.

Now to get the floppy version for the box and all of the goodies.

I believe that there was a map that was included with Black Cauldron that is missing in the copy that I just got. Of all the new games I have won that have arrived, The Colonels Bequest is the one that I am the most thrilled about. It is complete, down to the red "spy glass" (for the copy protection), notepad, registration card and even the pencil... everything. The box was in perfect shape. I've had brand new games that the box was not in as good of condition.

The last ones that I was waiting for arrived today:

and a game that was developed by Synergistic, a company that was aquired by Sierra.

I'm going to have to slow down on my game buying for a while, but I have filled a few glaring holes in my collection.

I know that I said that I need to lay off eBay for a while, but I could not resist.

Now to find the CD version. I'll settle for the CD without the extras, since this seems to have every thing. And one more. One of the rarest AGI games. I won it for $12.50

Seeing all those games almost makes me want to cry. Almost.
