Completing The 5200 Box Games.

Recommended Posts

Seeing that not many 5200 games are out in the wild my wish list is trying to complete all the box games or closes to it and I made a desktop wallpaper with images of games I have listed with some CIB title HAVE IT and games carts only ones to see what I have and don't have any games I have here that don't have any title on them I don't have at all. This is going to be rough seeing some of these games are very high in price like Bounty Bob or Homebrew games that already sold out but I'm more looking for Office Released games by Atari and Third Party games. Wish me luck.

Good luck! Aside from that really-hard-to-find Bounty Bob game (and even more hard to find box!), it's not a terribly hard collection to put together. It helps that almost all the games are fun to play. :-)

I'm only in the market for the games, although I'll take boxes/manuals/overlays if the price is reasonable. Only 10 games missing from my collection, getting harder and harder to track stuff down.

Not only has the price gone up, but I’ve encountered many fakes too.

 

Wow, yuck! Just curious, are these fairly obvious repros/fakes (like the one currently on Ebay) or something that someone might actually be fooled by (by putting it in a Quntana Roo case perhaps)?

Welcome to the patience test lol. I'm going for a complete CIB set as well. It can be annoying to find some titles as its a lot of luck, but it isnt too bad. I may have a spare Quintana cart in a few days

I have three left to get. I have been trying to obtain all in the boxed. Not worried about manuals on the rarer games. If I can at least get the box, I am okay with it. I have been going at the Atari 5200 for about four years now. The last five or so I have picked up took about two years to find. Like people have said before, you have to be patient.

 

 

Although the Meteorites game I have is repro. So you could say one game will not be an official copy. It looks very close to the original, almost too close. The seller was selling it as a repro, though so at least he was being honest. I didn't pay as much as the official copy. But be wary.

There's less online stores than there used to be for this kind of stuff, but I think this one is still operating (I haven't ordered for a while though):

 

http://www.collectorscardsandgames.com/new/Atari5200.html

 

You'll have to email him and ask if he still has what you want, as that list clearly hasn't been updated in years. For some games, the prices may be good enough to be worth the extra effort though.

I just call them and he said he was so bizzy on updated the list but he said he has some box games but need to list them for updated price and or if any are still there in store.

I tried to order a few cib commons from him a while back, that site is ghetto and he gave me the same story. Hasn't been updated in years and cannot sell them at those prices.

Sorry to hear things haven't gotten better with that operator, he used to run a much tighter ship years ago.

Good Luck.

 

I'd be happy to have them all loose, since boxes aren't important to me. But it's at the point that the ones I don't have are all the pricier ones.
