The wizard giveaway

Recommended Posts

Anyone know much about “the wizard of Odyssey Great Game Giveaway” promotion?  I ran across the following and I don’t recall seeing these with the sticker very often.  I’m assuming it was a buy x and receive free game y.  Anyone else run across one of these?

I have one of these. Mine is a Pick Axe Pete.

 

Speaking of which, if I remember correctly, in the Pick Axe Pete commercial it mentions this particular giveaway.

Here's Pick Axe Pete with the sticker.

 

So the commercial mentions that you'd get $82 worth of free games when you purchased an O2. Two games are shown, Quest for the Rings and PAP.

 

It makes sense. By '82 the Odyssey 2 was starting to wind down in America. My hunch is that the promotion was intended to get rid of as much older inventory as possible to make way for the few remaining titles in the future line-up.

 

It makes me wonder how many of these were specifically stickered for this promotion. I'll have to poke around eBay and see what I can find. I'd assume they'd all be in the lower right hand corner.

I think that would be a fair assumption.  I did some searching when I got it but I can’t really find much in the way of info for this promotion.  I’m assuming it must have been a mail away

Just want to point out there’s another Pick Axe Pete on eBay.
