What's the rarest 2600 game in your Collection?

Recommended Posts

Stargate and Mario Bros. (Warner-era carts), Kung-Fu Master, Private Eye, Mr. Do, Time Pilot and I think a blue label version of MegaMania.

EDIT: Forgot that I own Snoopy and The Red Baron

Just a note about my list; I created a tabled list and began making videos of the gameplay and uploading them on YouTube. I also marked whether I have the manual (Y) and rated the game from 1-5 based on my opinion.

 

I did not put any label information.

 

Again, I'm not sure on which are really rare, but I have a good idea which are common ;)

The rarest game, I have, nobody else has, because I wrote it. :P  And, no, you will not see it, nor will you get a ROM of it.

It was Magicard until I sold it. As for now, not sure. Most of my R9 and R10 are sold. Perhaps sealed copy of Swordquest Waterworld or Quadrun signed by Steve Woita?

Looks like it's Crypts of Chaos at a 5 for standard label.

 

I saw some people mention H.E.R.O also at 5, which I own as well, but I think that applies to a special label only?

Which reminds me..  I think I have a rarer game than Crazy Climber, but I wonder if I should count it... :ponder:

I have a copy of Q*bert's Qubes. Got it for $100 and it came with a half-custom made case with a printed cover on a plastic case meant to store almost any game cartridge.

Boing!

Subterranea

Crazy Climber

Mr. Do's Castle

 

and for some reason, Tapper by Sega always carries a value (or rarity) and I have 2 of them....it seems to carry more value than the harder to find Telesys games (Ram It, Stargunner, Demolition Herby - I have one of each) or even Up 'n Down!!  I consider ALL those more "rare" than Tapper....(I am judging this by number of copies I've seen outside ebay, opportunities to buy it, etc...)

And I still think Frankenstien's Monster by Data Age is much more common than the guides show...I've had at least 3 dupes I've traded off in the last few years...(It might be considered much more rare if complete in box, idk...)

impressive list, made my post look lame.

not advertising for it, but did you see there was a pepsi invaders for sale in the Marketplace section?  

 

so after those last two, what's left missing? - Atlantis II and Air Raid? 

 

another question to everyone:  I see more PAL versions of Spectravideo rares (mangia, gas hog, etc) than NTSC....is there any way to distinguish them without actually trying them out?  They look the same to me from most the pics i've seen...?

Ok I’ll bite.  I’m not familiar with this package. I’ve been collecting for 30 + years and don’t remember ever seeing this. Foreign release?

Thanks!  It took years of steady searching for a cart here, manual there.  I would jump on an air raid eventually but the last one i saw that sold on these forums was bought by a flipper who listed it on ebay for a profit right after.   Good or bad its part of the competition the pure collectors are up against.  
 

Thanks; yes the pepsi loose cart is being listed at what another loose pepsi cart And the unicorn box were sold at previously.  
 

I’m not aware of a pal identifying mark for the spectravisiin carts
