July 2018 trades / pickups

July started off well with a trip to the local charity shops that turned up a few game cd's and a Creative Labs branded Mitsumi keyboard. Most of this month has actually been spent curating some of the items added to this site. It's been a long road towards getting a portion of my collection catalogued and loaded but the effort was worth it and as for the PC games, I would guess it's about 60% done. During a trip to the far Westrand in the 2nd week of July I collected the following :

  • Anvil of Dawn
  • Cadaver
  • Crimson Sky
  • Lands of Lore
  • Chronicles of the Sword
  • Dragon Lore
  • Mechwarrior 2
  • King's Quest : Mask of Eternity (box only)

At the end of July I was lucky enough, that's to a fellow collector, to pick up a total of 18 news of which the bulk were Sierra ones. The list is as follows :

  • Hero's Quest
  • Quest for Glory 2
  • Quest for Glory 3
  • Kings Quest IV
  • Kings Quest VI
  • Space Quest IV
  • Space Quest V
  • Leisure Suit Larry 2
  • Leisure Suit Larry 3
  • Leisure Suit Larry 5
  • The Colonel's Bequest
  • Subwar 2050
  • Legend of Kyrandia : Book 1
  • Hand of Fate
  • Gunship 2000
  • Conquest of Camelot
  • Gabriel Knight
  • Codename : ICEMAN

This is the largest single haul of Sierra produced games that I have personaly taken in and although many of these have found a new home with a fellow collector there are a few that will remain to improve my own collection. Of the list above I was lucky enough to find some alternate media versions so even though the game box is identical the contents have either the 5.25" floppies or alternate 3.5" stiffy disks.

As always I hope that August is just as exciting a month and July has reminded me that there are many more boxed games out there in the wild.
