Columbia Video Game Club Magazine (Do you have any?)

Recommended Posts

Digitpress.com has issues 4 through 7:

 

digitpress.com/archives/columbiahouse/index.htm

 

But does anyone have any more or are there others online that I haven't been able to find so far? I ask because AtariAge says that Bumper Bash, Gas Hog, and Mangia were sold by Columbia House and so far I only see these Spectravision/Spectravideo games:

 

Mangia and Nexar in number 4.

Planet Patrol, Master Builder and Nexar in number 5.

 

Planet Patrol in number 6.

 

Master Builder in number 7.

 

I'd like to see the ones that included Bumper Bash and Gas Hog. (I'd like to see every Columbia Video Game Club Magazine that sold Atari 2600 games if I could, but those two would be a good start.)

 

 

 

On a semi-related subject, Kick-Man for the Atari 2600 was sold in Number 6 and Number 7. Would they put that game in their "magazine" twice if it wasn't available?

I have a sealed copy of this for sale, if anyone is interested. Post here, don't PM me, it'll get lost in the noise.

I have to at least on a basic level express interest and find this fascinating, but feel free to ignore me because I am not a true collector and likely don't have a good concept of the value of such a thing.

Most I've spent on a game was $250, and I am guessing something like this is worth...thousands?

Is the game complete then?

I don't know if it is complete, it is sealed. Doesn't matter, it's sold now, nothing to see here.

I've always been very surprised that Kickman was never found in any form. I would have thought it would have been at least started.

It was not only started but completely finished according to one of the programmers who claims to have worked on it, and there were at least a few more Bally/CBS titles that were finished but never announced or shown anywhere. They may still be out there somewhere.

Neither of the 2 known protos of Wings are 100%, but if someone technically proficient could splice the two together, it would be great to have.

I never heard that. Tough to believe that they've never been found if that's the case. Based on Columbia advertising for sale, I guess it's possible.

If so, I take it it's one of those things that's not going to see light of day ?

Most probably so I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.

That's a shame, but I know how the world works with these kind of things. It is what it is.

Too true my friend which is why I stopped caring about any of the lost titles. From a historical point of view it would be fantastic to see the finished product but as so many have pointed out about other titles, the owner can do what they want with their property so if it truly exists good luck to who ever has it.

That would be amazing for this title, but I'm not getting my hopes up. Last time I did I was so excited to be one of the first signed up for another release of Pink Panther which was one of my OMG titles. The "developer" up and disappeared and it never happened. I was so bummed.
