I saw what I think was a re-packaged Doriath in the last 2-3 months but other than that, zip. Black Magic for the Apple was the first Apple game I bought off ebay. That was 2+ years ago, and I might have only seen one since then. Superb game. Does not take long to beat. Tower of Myraglen

Interesting. Perhaps very few copies were published since it was the last of the four Infocomics and the other ones had relatively little success? Yes, I was referring to the $19.99 "Buy It Now". That Deadline grey is interesting I just saw a shrinkwrapped Deadline folio go for $29.99

I thought I recalled having seen one of these mentioned, although I dont know which one. I picked up a bunch of games half a year ago, and among them were the C-64 version of Deadline. I am a bit noob though since I cant tell whether or not this is a folio or "grey". It is flat, like a fold

Joe, I'd like to lodge a formal protest. Drash is NOT an Origin product and should not be in your museum. I also think thatowning a personal copy is a conflict of interest. Expect a letter from the Federal Museum Regulation Board. In the meantime, I suggest you tell the seller to send the item

Those are neither folio nor grey. What you have are the Commodore re-issues of Infocom games. Unfortunately these are probably the most commonly available shrink-wrapped Infocom's you can find :-( Hugh-Original Message- From: Stefan Lindblom <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>Sent: Jan 7, 2004 5:46 PM
