A conversation yesterday with a fellow Atari enthusiast sparked my interest in this. Most everyone has come across more than a handful of the attached Atari Advantage catalog/poster that came with many 7800 games. What has seemingly proven to be MUCH more elusive is the XE version of the Atari Advantage catalog/poster. Does anyone know which XE games included this catalog/poster bundled inside the game box?

 

Any insight would be greatly appreciated; I'm more curious than anything else. I already have one for my personal collection but can't recall which game box it originally came out of.

If I remember correctly, I got mine with a copy of Desert Falcon.

The poster can be found in several XE(GS) cart boxes, e.g. Dark Chambers.

Ok thanks, so we can add Desert Falcon and Dark Chambers to the list. It was only a handful of titles that had it, though, right?

I have checked my blue box collection (almost complete) and only my Dark Chambers does have the XE advantage poster (my Desert Falcon box did not contain the poster). My Dark Chambers box has a small yellow star shaped sticker on the front of the box which states the Atari Advantage program.

Wow, only one game! Good to know. Thank you all!

You might be right about that.  I bought my copies of Desert Falcon and Dark Chambers together, and I may well have pulled my poster from Dark Chambers instead.

Well, I am not saying it can not be found in another box ;) I just checked my own collection ;)

 

I think that yellow star shaped sticker on the front of the box is a nice clue ;)
