This has to be one of the best looking boxed copies of Tower of Doom I have ever seen. I picked this up in a local Game Exchange for 65 dollars. I know this goes for about that price on EBay but none of them have ever seem as in good shape as this one.

Being in disbelief I had to do a search to see if there were ever any reproductions made of this and I was never able to find one. It seems legit but its hard to believe. Here are some of the pictures and a link to more photos.

Your thoughts?

The one I have is a little less nice, but still in very great shape.  I bought it from Craigslist in a town 40 miles away.

 

Nice pickup

Wow, that is nice. It has been my experience that for 'rare' games some game exchange stores ignore condition and simply get price information from the last several sales of a game on ebay or use videogamepricecharts, which can mean overpriced poor condition games but underpriced mint condition ones.

Yea it’s defiantly rare to find this game is such good condition. It’s almost like no one ever played it.

Nice! Also my favorite Intellivision game (non homebrew)

Want to trade for something?? :) I will include a not as nice Tower of Doom (CIB) in the trade of course :)

40 miles? Did you leave it there while you play at home? All those Numix extension cables must be putting his kid through college.

Joking aside, congrats Coldheat on such a nice find. That one is way better looking than the Tower of Doom I have.

That's nicer than my copy. Nice find and well worth the price. Tower of Doom and Thunder Castle are two games worth having nice boxes for, imo.
