The first Dr. Brain is the original (which is the one that I wanted) and the 2nd is the Discovery version. I'm not sure if there is any other than the Discovery version of Island. I have not seen any evidence of it. If there is, I would like to get it.

Edit: Nevermind... i was thinking about seeing original Castle, not original Island... Haven't seen any other box than Sierra Discovery Series either.

If anyone ever scores an extra copy of Space Quest 1 EGA (original box), let me know! :) I'd gladly purchase it. I think I am missing Police Quest 1 EGA - not 100% sure. I need to double check. Other than that I'd have all the "Quest Classics."

Space Quest 1 EGA... hard to find. Got a search engine scanning eBay for it daily.

Picked this one up just now: Conquests of Camelot

I've seen it on ebay "still packaged" (which means they probably re-packaged it - we used to do it at Electronics Boutique when people traded in games)... and it always sells for an excessively high amount.

This one, obviously not sealed, went for $10 with buy-it-now and looked pretty much complete so, in cases like this, there's no doubt i'll run off with it when i see 'em. As usual it's the shipping which costs me the most: on average $20 to ship from the USA to Slovenia.

Awesome on the unopened Gobliins 2. I have the box and game, but I never had the manual that came with it.

And wow. LSL Collection? How much did that set you back? I've been looking for that copy for a good while and....well...pretty out of my price range from what I've seen. :D

I got the LSL Collection Series for $4.25, but the box end was torn.

Asterix, by Coktel Vision?? Never seen that one. Didn't even know it existed. Nice to see you got your hands on that KQ2, Collector :lol:

Guess what i've just found: the rare Diablo Hellfire, complete:
Image

I got it for an amazing price too, only GBP13.09 (about $25), that's CHEAP for this item.

...and a couple more.

King's Quest 6. FINALLY the individual box. Probably took me so long to get it because the box comes in so many different colors (white, black, violet, red, blue). Got the black one now, more colors to follow:
Image

Leisure Suit Larry 5: my first individual & original box of the LSLs. One down, many to go.
Image

Another LSL collection. Got it pretty cheap actually, only $9.99. I was the only bidder because the same seller was auctioning Larry Ultimate Pleasure Pack aswell, so everybody was focussed on that one.

Ah Zeliard, still missing that one, along with Sorcerian. Aside from those 2 games, the Thexder series and Silpheed, Sierra didn't publish anything from GameArts, did they?

Just got a proposal from a seller to purchase LSL1 (SCI), LSL2, LSL3, Freddy Pharkas, SQ4 and PQ2, all complete, all together for $80. They won't even get listed on eBay. Did business with him before, very reliable and friendly man.

I believe that that is it for the GameArts games. I only need Slipheed. There is a PC version on eBay right now for $20, which I might have considered, but he wants $50 for shipping. Screw this type of unprincipled seller. I can wait. Are you going to take that deal? I already have all of those except PQ2 standalone, which I am watching one on eBay, now.
