Is there a floating status for this game? I'd like to be added to the list if there is. Does anyone know what the box or jewel case for this game looks like? Is this the hardest game to find or what???? What is a fair price to offer someone for this game if I ever come across anyone willing to part with it?

I guess you missed the information that stated that "floating games" are no longer allowed on GB's..... So, unfortunately, I don't think you could be added to a floater list....
As far as the game is concerned, it is a pretty rare game, being sold for at least $100, sometimes more....

Hello,
I may be wrong but wasn't Alice one of the games you were expecing in a trade from Alex from Russia? Have you gotten an up date from him concerning your trade? <img border="0" title="" alt="[Confused]" src="confused.gif" />

Alex said he sent it, but I never received it. frown He said he didn't get my games either, but he did get the books. Doesn't make sense, but hey I don't know how the Russian postal system works. So he got the books and we both lost out on the games. What luck, huh...Well, no more trading with Russia for me. Can't afford them losing all my games. I will keep on looking, but surely not at the prices most people want... $200.00 or more!!!! eek

Catlee,

Did you buy Treasure hunter for $115? And Puppet motel for $199? Because there was somebody who bought Aim for $191 and the same person bought the other 2 I mentioned. I didn't know it was you. wink

WAAA HAHAHA -leaping out the window-! Puppet Motel for $199! I got mine for $40 (same hybrid version) and had to think about it for a long time. I did pay that kind of money before for rare games, but never over $200. Now I never pay anything above the MSRP. And Aim for $191!!! Actually I've never heard of this, still that much money for any game is too rich for my blood.

Cathy must be every seller's best friend and every bidder's worst nightmare laugh .

I guess Aim stands for Alice...duh <img border="0" alt="woozy" title="" src="graemlins/woozy.gif" />

I paid $40 for my 3 Skulls of the toltecs with multilanguage box and manual and English game + a mint poster. I thought that was an awesome deal. laugh I did see Kilrathi saga go for $40 with box and extras. I am glad you were low on money when I bought Wing commander colectors edition. (No offence) I almost reached my max bid of $40, but beat you and than I realized I could have bought the game from their site for $35 instead of $38. But I think I bought one of the last Wing commander 3 collectors editions because I don't see anymore on ebay. 3 Skulls recently went for $225 and it was a sealed English version.

Hi All!

For Dee or anyone: Please clue me in as to what a floating game is.

Cheers!

Gameboomers used to allow floating of rare games that were unobtainable at a reasonable price. For example, $200 is not a reasonable price for a game when all you really want to do is play it once. $200 is for collectors of pop memorabilia.

To float a game, someone who owned the game would loan it out to people who wanted to play it. Those who wanted to play the game would add their names to the float list. Usually the loaned game was a CDR copy of the original because of the risk of losing an extremely rare game in the mail - expecially when some of the people on the float list lived overseas and the game had to pass through customs.
