If anybody is interested in the first release of King's Quest III, here's your chance. Be fast though, the auction lasts only another 6 hours:

9 5.25" Floppy Diskettes? Must be the 1990 release, not the 1987 as stated.

It's the 1987 box but yes, 9 floppies is an awful lot for this game. Mine has only 2 5.25" floppies and 1 3.5" floppy. Somebody already bought it anyway...

There was a 1990 SCI remake release with this box. I have two. The gold box does not automatically mean AGI. I still need the standalone AGI version of the game. I am going after 2 right now.

This wouldn't be one of those 2, would it?

If so, just to let you know i'm aiming at it too. It's the last of the gray boxes i'm still missing, so i'm going for the last-second kill on this one ;) .

I hate to counterbid a friend, but i'd hate even more to let that one pass by. It shows up rarely and is in very nice condition. You know how i bid, so you know how to outbid me. Good luck :| .
