So I came to realize I am never going to get pics of everything for the 2600 at once so I better just get started on posting these in company sets as I get some bits of time
I am only missing about 10 USA original releases to have a complete collection. Sadly about half of those are basically impossible to get the other half extremely htf and past my price point to be plausible to ever get.
There are a few more boxes I certainly would love to get though as I need about another dozen box onlys in addition to the games I don't have at all.
The 2600 has been such a fun system to collect for so many years, at 1 point just mainly focusing on carts as I did for lots of consoles in the 80s and early 90s and then more on cib as I realized it could be possible to at least come close to a complete set
I figured I would start by posting some of the harder to find stuff and go from there, hopefully eventually showing them all here and eventually some pal and variants etc. as well.
First here are most of the titles for what I call the 1 off games, titles made by small companies that only ever did 1 game for the 2600.
These are all cib.....but the box and manual for music machine are repro as well as the manual for Xman. I don't hold hope for ever getting the music machine box but maybe the manuals for it and xman.
I wish I could get a box for music machine as I owned both records as a kid and also saw the live stage production of it, where I could have bought the game in person....but we only had a colecovision then!!
Glib is sealed and was a copy owned by 1 of the programmers.
Boing! definitely has to be one of the oddest shaped game boxes ever.
Next up is Comma Vid. A little company that was in my general area and was actually on the same street as my favorite software store back in the mid 80s....Microtech. Both on Farnsworth in Aurora, IL.
Wish I had known then to go hit them up for some of these!
All are cib except video life which is a cart/box repro....not going to ever drop $8-10k on it.
And magicard is the sunmark remake.....content with that as well.
And of course rush hour is the repro from the 2003 CGE.
I also don't have the English manual for cakewalk and my stronghold box is fairly crappy
I also have the very htf ntsc alternate box for cosmic swarm....great art on it.
Next is Tigervision. Also very hard to finish set. I love the art on these boxes! All cib except the river patrol box is a repro.....to pricey for my tastes! Hard enough to just get the game and manual! Not dropping $2-5k on that box
Next is Avalon Hill, also a hard to complete set and mine is complete except for that pesky out of control box.....dont think i will drop $1k+ on that as much as i want it.
These came in nice 2 piece boxes with a tray like the Parker brothers games did.
Next is Telesys. Another hard to finish set with great artwork! And mine is all real and all cib on this 1!
Next Is CBS Electronics. Complete set all cib. Omega race came in an oversized box with a weird controller add on.
Next is Konami. They only did 3 games but they came in cool gatefold boxes that looked really nice. I have the complete set cib.
Next is Absolute. They only made 4 games for the 2600. I have all 4 cib and all sealed but tomcat
Well that's all for now, I think I hear my wife calling! Enjoy
