"Mr. Do's Castle" owners list!

Recommended Posts

It's long been rumoured that "Mr. Do's Castle" had a limited Canadian release; just how many owners are out there? I'll start:

 

two -- both have a white label. One came as a surprise in an eBay lot from a seller in Saskatchewan ten years ago; I bought the other in a Value Village store in Red Deer around 2000. Neither was boxed (nor came with instructions).

 

I believe that Nir Dary (Israel) has an "original" cartridge as well.

 

Anyone else?

Just got one in a lot this past weekend, cart only but the same label as on atarimania. Had no idea quite how rare or valuable it is.

perhaps a couple of dumps are in order, almost all the roms floating around are 5200 conversions?

 I have one of these cartridges and can probably dump it at some point.

Mine is the Canadian white label variant but was purchased via eBay a few years back from a US seller.

As a Canadian, I've always wanted one of these, but they are so pricey when they come up!

I purchased the last of my white-label copies in an eBay lot (of a ton of A8 equipment) from a seller in Saskatoon ten years ago for $86. I haven't seen another one in a lot like that since then.

I definitely overpaid for mine, but I am not Canadian so my chances of finding one in the wild are basically nil.  I tried to acquire at least one US prototype and a few copies of the Canadian release previously but was outbid every time.  I think one of them was owned by AtariLeaf (which he mentioned in this thread above but later sold shortly thereafter) although I could be mistaken.  Without a lot of luck, it's hard to acquire a legitimate copy of this game cheaply.  Even the diskette release is very rare and fairly expensive due to it being a dual-format flippy disk that draws attention from Atari and Commodore gamers and collectors.

I'd certainly like to know where the box (is there only one, or have two now been found?) was found. I wonder if Parker Bros. had a few boxes made up, and then shipped the whole lot to Canada when the market collapsed? It would make sense that the Canadian division would have just packaged whatever was left in plastic baggies and sold them like that.

I recently picked this up from a local seller. It was in a box of 2600 stuff. I bought the lot to practice repair of the consoles. I realized it was 'Very Rare+' on AtariAge. I'm not really into collecting or investing. Looking on eBay its hard to get an idea what its worth as boxed ones for the 2600 are not there or on completed listings. I realize its the US version and not Canada. Any thoughts, ideas, value, offers?

You're on the wrong forum bub. We're talking about the 8-bit computer version of Mr. Do's Castle, which is way more rare than the 2600 version.

 

I see copies of the 2600 version going for $50 to $75 on Ebay for a loose cartridge.

Doah! I found the thread searching and didn't notice where I was. Total rookie move :)
