I know that over here we usually talk retro hardware, but I couldn't help but share my latest retro gaming haul. In total, I picked up 28 Sierra adventure games from a family who was parting with their beloved collection. All of the games are in near-mint condition, complete with every map, manual, trinket and advertisement in the box. Only one is missing its sleeve (Laura Bow 2) :\
Most of all, I cannot wait to play some of these with a young friend of mine, who is just getting into older adventure games. I gave her a Tandy 1000 TL/2 and monitor, and about half of the games from the haul. She had a blast playing Space Quest I over the weekend.
Here is the list of games: Police Quest 2 Police Quest 3 Kings Quest 1 EGA Kings Quest 2 Inca Leisure Suit Larry 1 Leisure Suit Larry 3 Leisure Suit Larry 4 Leisure Suit Larry 5 Heart of China Space Quest 1 VGA Zeliand Gold Rush Stellar 7 Sorcerian Camelot Oils Well Heroes Quest Iceman The Colonel's Bequest Robin Hood Take a Break Pinball Incredible Machine Manhunter 2 Slipheed Space Quest IV Laura Bow 2
I had some fun with the camera when I got home. Here are a few shots of what I picked up

Awesome haul! I loved the early Larry games and played a few of the King's Quest and Space Quest games. Sierra had a great sense of humour and their packaging was a large part of the game experience for me - I loved all the extra bits and bobs you got in the box. ;^)
