Hi everyone - I've been looking for a nice, clean CIB copy of Activision Checkers for quite some time with no luck so I wanted to check here to see if anyone has one they would be willing to sell. 
 
I'd prefer the "clean" (no black swatch) version of the box, if at all possible (box on the right in the attached picture).
   
Thank you in advance for any consideration!
 
Regards,
Whitney

That is gonna cost you a good chunk of change, that is a pretty rare box.

There's one on eBay right now with 9 other boxed Activision games. $100 shipped.

This game is deceptively rare, I had bought quite a few lots and never picked it up. Recently picked it up after comparing Activision list to my collection. Still some holes to fill.

I'm hoping it won't but am expecting it to, unfortunately.

Yeah, I did see that - I just hate to burn a hundy on that one game, but it might become worth it to grab it and then unload the other games... I'll do that as last resort, as I was really wanting to find a bit nicer of a box, tbh.

Indeed it is...rarer than one would immediately think.  I'm down to needing this and Double Dragon in box and I've got the full CIB set done, so I'm blaming it on my own OCD and love for the Activision box art.  :)

Activision is a very doable set right now but will probably get much harder later on. I'm missing double dragon too along with beamrider, decathlon and maybe another one can't remember.

If you collect alot of 2600 boxed games it's amazing seeing the variation in colors on the shelf.

Yes, it's definitely doable, but the prices continue to go up.  Games like Beamrider, Cosmic Commuter, Private Eye and Hero show no signs of slowing down, either.  Double Dragon has been almost impossible for me to obtain boxed due to price.  While I was at the National Videogame Museum in Frisco, TX a couple of weeks back, I also saw there was a Gostbusters 2 for the 2600 and I had no idea that even existed.

 

I'm big on Activision and the color/gatefold Atari 2600 games..those were the heavy-hitters of my youth with the Silver box games coming in a close second, so I'll have a special spot in my heart for all of them for the rest of my life.
