Apogee stuff.

Ok, I will take this 3 games 😁
I´m a bigbox collector too and it´s impossible to get this three games in our country. I can search them on USA Ebay , but they are crazy with their shipping costs and taxes 🙁

Thx for the higher resolution and you own beautiful games 😀

Awesome Blizzard collection! I have a couple of questions and a request.

Do you have Warcraft I in any form? Haven't seen it so far.

Does your StarCraft Battle Chest have the game CDs in paper sleeves or in jewel cases?

Would it be possible for you to share high-resolution scans of the rear inserts of your StarCraft & Brood War jewel cases? (I assume that at least the individual boxed copies have them) I want to print them for my copy, and MobyGames does not offer sufficiently high resolutions for download.

Don't have any Warcraft 1.

The SC Battle Chest and big boxes both have the same jewel cases, I'll try and get them scaned on the weekend.

just looking again at these, especially the contents, i am reminded of when the art and extras were (or should be) considered part of the game, largely because the game often wasn't that great all by itself, you needed the 'imagination support' the materials gave you, otherwise the veil would fall and you'd realise you were playing something repetitive and clunky with bleeps (not all games, but lots really don't hold up well if you dive in cold with binaries only, then or now - but especially now)

If the corrosion isn't too bad you might be able to clean it up and swap out the batteries.

Yeah, I want to but it's glued in and I don't want to damage the box trying to get it out. It's very tight in the cover but I might try and find the positive and negative and piggyback a battery in there and hope there is no trace damage from the leakage.

Would you mind showing the contents of your theme hospital please? I've got the AU box but I suspect the contents are from the UK version.
