Wow, from what deep, dark recess of the search function did this thread arise? ;)

I'm not reading through 78 pages, but does anyone know if the OP sold off the boxed Wizard of Wor?

 

I don't think he sold his other stuff. He was starting to collect Atari games at one point and then he disappeared.

The whole box thing seems suspicious to me. None of them may be real.

I own the most complete version and owned the first one that was discovered and trust me, this is a fake. All of the physical traits of this fake are not consistent to the ones I have and had. I saw one picture were you can see the inside of it and it is nothing close to the original. A red manual, the manual is not red, I can assure you of that.

Hello everyone!

I had a old friend of mine stop by the other day and we got to talking about old video games. After a few beers I cracked open the closet that houses all the old Atari stuff I collected after the auction. Thought I check back in (and seeing that this thread was already recently bumped up).

Cracks me up that there are fake air raids being produced. Seems like there would be better things to try and fool people with. I still have high res scans of my original box from way back. Wonder007, maybe we should setup an Air Raid authentication service? heh?

 

Reading back over all the info on the game, I never knew there was a instruction manual with the game. Kinda makes me want to crack open the storage locker again and open up all my old boxes. Just when I though I was out, they pull me back in!

 

Just wanted to say hi to everyone!

Tanner

Good to see you again! BTW, feel free not to answer this :P But I was always curious as to what you and your wife used the Air Raid money for. I think you said at one time but damned if I can find it again!

There is someone on Facebook who believes the "authentic" boxes are all hoaxes made by one individual (or a conspiracy of several people), and that they are slowly being leaked out to cash in on them.

I posted my opinion in that thread, but I'm not going to continue going back and forth with John Chrisopoulos.

You're a good guy Al. You debated very well with no insults. After John started talking about moon conspiracies you just left the topic on a high note. :)
