So, what is the rarest game you own?  I think mine is a loose Golden Voyage, Adventure #12 by Adventure International, a 9/10 on Atarimania.

Game:  Ali-Baba and the Forty Thieves.  Rarity 8 on Atarimania

 

Utility: Richman's Word Processor.  So rare that Atarimania doesn't even know it exists.

I owned a CIB copy of Arex for a while, but needed to sell it: Arex

 

I don't know if it was the rarest title I've owned, but certainly one of the more interesting rare titles. A lot of rare titles aren't very interesting, which is partly why they're rare in the first place.

 

BTW, the rarity ratings on Atarimania are for boxed copies only.

I have The Pay-Off Adventure, which seems to be rated 10 out of 10 (which I didn't think was that rare) ... My best, slightly rare is a complete in box with map, Bounty Bob Strikes Back cartridge

Forget it, that's an 8, as it's the Atari version, not Big Nose I have of The Pay-Off

Productivity:

Letter Perfect Cart (8 on Atarimania - considering they had a >50% market share 8 seems quite high)

Spell Perfect (not even rarity rated ;))

 

 

Programming:

Page 6 by Synapse (8)

MAE Macro Assembler Editor (Eastern House, rarity not listed)

Microsoft Basic II (8, complete box with disc, classified ad buy)

 

Games:

Apple Panic (8 - impulse buy around 1984 - didn't really convince me, though)

Zenji (7, classified ads buy)
 
Altogether not that rare except finally....
 
Final Flight (9 - sure we had this, don't remember giving it away but still not sure where it might be stowed....)
Warlock's Revenge (9 - great title, the rest is a bit disappointing...)

BTW, the rarity ratings on Atarimania are for boxed copies only.

If it is boxed only:

My rarest IB(Box+game only) game is Pirate Adventure, Adventure #2 by Adventure International, my rarest CIB game would be my Spy vs. Spy 1+2 combo disk and My rarest Utility would be my CIB 1988 Atariwriter.

Hello guys

 

Rarest software: (which I wrote myself)  CDAP (a utility that runs on the 8 bit Atari which enables you to select opticals drives (connected to your BlackBox).  And the sound tracks you want them to play) and CDDR (a utility to read data CD's and DVD's), which is far from finished.  You can find both here.

 

Rarest piece of hardware: Two Atari boot CD's.  Stick 'em in an optical drive (that's connected to your BlackBox), select 512 byte per sector mode on the drive, and reboot your Atari from one of the CD's.

 

Sincerely

 

Mathy

I have a Monkey Wrench II cartridge.  

 

I know it's rare in the sense that very few products were made for the right cart slot on an 800, but I have no idea what the rarity is in terms of how many of these units were actually produced by Eastern House Software.

Shrinkwrapped.

I suspect buried in your attic are products that even the manufacturers have forgotten about - probably with your MIO 80 column cards and the rest of your rare hardware.

I do not have the capability to dump carts.

 

Sorry.

My 9's and (one 10) - all ratings courtesy of AtariMainia

 

rare list.jpg

 

And I suppose I should add the world's only copy of the Dungeon Hunt Cartridge  ;)

 

 

P.S.  Why does the editor allow a nicely formatted table (copy and pasted from Excel), but then won't display it properly in the actual message?

I have a Diamond GOS cart... probably the rarest thing that I have (Atarimania Rating is 9).  I have a sealed copy of Mindwheel (7 on AM) as well (maybe 2).

 

I really should open up my old A8 boxes and catalog what I have left.
