Got these in the mail today. The guy I bought them off said they are prototypes. I payed $25 on all 3. Im not so sure they are prototypes. Maybe pirated games. They do work on the 2600 but just not sure. Could use some help on this.

The technology of today never ceases to amaze me.  One of my cats is uploading a selfie hologram at the moment.  Weird.

If pics fail, perhaps the games can be described in words as to which titles they are, how the labels look, general appearance of the shells etc.

They are laser blast, super breakout, and championship soccer for the 2600

I fixed the link for you. Those appear to be pirated copies of the games on handmade circuit boards. This was somewhat common "back in the day", and I've seen many varieties of boards like this. Definitely not prototypes.

Those look like homemade copies. I would doubt very highly that they are protos

Even as pirates, they're very neat. Thanks for sharing :)

As being pirated 2600 games do they still hold a little value?

dollar value, not really. They are a neat addition to a collection.

so what you are saying is they are his "prototypes" of the bootleg carts he used to make.
That is exactly what we said they were?

I am sure he does have more, prototypes of pirates, that means nothing, not worth anything more then whatever his materials cost to create them or what someone else is willing to pay for them.

Can you ask him under what company or name he made pirate carts for the European market.
