Just Found This :)

Hi All


I just found in one of my cupboards a game that I believe to be worth some money.

It a copy of the promotional game MYTH by Magnetic Scolls, it is mine it has my name
upon it.

Is it really worth the money I read as in one for sale at a retro site for £350 and the fact
that one sold for far more than that on Ebay

Any comments about this game ?

Yep, It's that rare. It wasn't distributed commercially as it was given for free on entering some adventure club (which I guess you were a member of!). Text adventure collectors, amiga or not, are willing to pay a lot for a copy. What "a lot" exactly means is variable. I've seen it go both for more than 300 and less than 50 GBP at ebay depending on demmand.

It's the one item I lack in my collection to have a whole set of magnetic scrolls interactive fiction works! (so right now I'm green with envy ) Congrats!
