I need cartridges!  The looser the better!  ;)  Trades are preferred (link to my trade list in the Trading Post forum), but sales offers are always considered, too. :thumb:

I'm almost positive I have a text label Football.  I will check.

Indeed -- I believe you mentioned this one to me in our PMs on AA.  I think I'd rather avoid a trade for JUST this, because the cost to ship it to me would be something like 10x what the game itself is worth (in my mind, anyway)!  That said, I'm *positive* you'll have something else I want soon enough, if not already.  We can build a trade -- we have the technology!

I think at least 3 or 4 of your want list is in the current Junk Box 4.  Maybe they'll be left when it gets back to it's origin.

I'm interested in seeing photos of Gravitar (Red), Secret Quest, and Ikari Warriors CIB.  Generally I try to avoid buying boxes, but when the price is right and I feel like it's a box I could sell/trade as a standalone, I'll at least consider it!

 

I have a few of these you want (indy 500, football, homerun)

 

Send me a photo or three?  And see what looks interesting to you from my trade list.  Hopefully we can work something out!

Actually I took photos of everything before I read your post. The Ikari box does have crushing.

I can take more photos on request, but clicking on the photos should make them larger.

@nosweargamer -- absolutely interested in trading for Secret Quest loose and Gravitar loose.  Ikari Warriors... maybe.  Depends on what you want for it, I suppose!  Have a look at my list and let me know if anything interests you.

 alright, I will and get back to you.

Would've done it sooner, but I have had a hard time getting onto the site lately.

I'd be willing to do all three including the CIB Ikari for:

 
Fun With Numbers (text label, missing end label)
Kaboom (standard label)
Stellar Track (Sears pic label)
Tac-Scan
 
Those are the only games on your list I don't have (I made a dummy move and accidentally sold my kaboom thinking it was a double a few months back)  :mellow:
 
Let me know if that works for you.

"Fun With Numbers" is the same as "Basic Math", right?  That's really cool.  I wonder which was first, and why it was renamed?  Really nice trade you guys.

Yes -- same game.  Basic Math was one of the original nine gatefold-box releases -- i.e. "61  Basic Math".  I'm pretty sure the re-titling to Fun With Numbers occurred in 1980, about the same time as the title change for "Hunt and Score" (which became "A Game of Concentration").  They first appear in the Rev. D 1980 Atari catalog, I'm pretty sure.

 

Why were they renamed?  I can only assume the marketing department decided that including words like "Fun" and "A Game" in the titles might generate a few more sales.  "Fun With Numbers" in a toy store might fool a kid (or parent!) into think it's actually a fun title, whereas... a title like "Basic Math" is as bland (but accurate!) as can be.  :D
