Are the PCBs of Mouse Trap ne, or recycled old copys? I would also that it cant count as a "homebrew" game, because its just a new box and a new label on a old game. If we call this a "new" game, than we may also call the Repro-Box sets new Box variants? :D

You make a very good point.

Yeah, I think we always have to remember that these are games first, collectible objects second. If we lose sight of that, we may as well start collecting glass figurines, wearing face powder and hand cream, and playing bingo. :D

 

Of course Mouse Trap has a place on a master list, and it's an unusual piece that's currently alone in its category. But it's a packaging variant, made specifically for collectors, not a game in its own right.

Ok, so to have a complete GAME list in your collection [125 and Post 125], you only need one version of Mouse Trap?  Does the Post 125 version of Mouse Trap count towards your 125?  Since it is just a package variant?

Since Rev makes the rules for the Platinum level ask him. If you want it to know for yourself, you should decide it for yourself ;) For me I would have a 125 CiB collection even if I only would have the baggy Spiker, because it was sold as a baggy version. Of course I would need the bag too.

I agree with that. I count my bagged 4-Tris as complete as that is how it was distributed.  It is a very unique version that is tied to CGE 2005 very much like the Philly Classic version has a non-standard box.  I am sure it is considered complete.

If someone didn't have the original Mouse Trap release, but had the recent fan-made version? Absolutely, that'd count toward the 125 IMHO.

It's already for sale, so it is released, even though we might not receive it for a week or so.

I agree. Allowing 2-4 weeks for processing after purchase still means it is released.

Oh dudes, you really make things complicated :D

 

But to play this game too: What if Rev scams us all and never ships anything? Is the game still released? :P In fact its ready to order.

It is a simple matter to remove it from the list.  But I am sure there are already copies on someone's shelf already.

For the original 125 then....we must take out some of the reissued sports games.....baseball comes to mind.  Not 125 then!   Let me go back to that thread and drudge it up.

There is a mistake on the 125 list, somehow world championship baseball made it on to the list. We dont need these cheap variants on our beloved 125 Master list!

 

From here on forward it shall be:

 

The 124 Club!

Where is the list of 125 titles? I dug out my loose Intellivision carts yesterday and I'm curious where I stand.

World Championship Baseball stays in! That's no variant, it's a space st...I mean, it's an updated and expanded version of an earlier game, just like most of the INTV Super Pro titles.

 

Why are people so determined to include Mouse Trap in a list of "homebrews"? Were there any changes made to the game code? If new modes or something were added, then it should absolutely be in, but otherwise I can't see how it's anything other than a variant.

 

That doesn't demean the project in any way, it's just a statement based on the idea that the game, not the packaging, is paramount in establishing a "core set".

 

BTW the most borderline cases in the original 125 are really Learning Fun I & II and Triple Challenge, IMHO.

The ROMs of Learning Fun I & II are not identical to the ones of Math Fun and Word Fun. They are like their "Super Pro" versions (not so much super, though...).

 

I totally agree with you on Triple Challenge, but I can't imagine it outside the 125
