Any have this or play it back in the day?

It was a HUGE adventure game over 6 double sided disks that cost a whopping $100 at launch.

I didn't have $100 in the early 80's but this was one of the games I wanted to pick up and never did.

Every now and then I take a look online but haven't seen one. I'd imagine it is a bit rare just based on the price it was.

Poofta!

I was a huge Sierra on-line and adventure game fan back then, and still am. I remember hearing about this game but it had completely lapsed my memory until this moment.

Thanks for bringing it up, I too am interested in hearing more about it. Its late now but i will definitely do some research on it tomorrow.


Cheers!

It is quite rare and pricey. I've been in the market for one of these for a while (on the quest to build a complete Sierra set... Or at least complete set of their adventure stuff.)

Cool epic game though.

If you want to play it, it's available on the King's Quest Collection Series (http://www.sierraplanet.com/curiosities/kingsquest/collections.html).

I can't remember hearing about this at all.

I have -never- seen a single copy of this game out in the wild.

Depends on condition. Here (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kings-Quest-Collection-Series-PC-1999-Complete-/360389618714?pt=Video_Games_Games&hash=item53e8e52c1a) is a complete copy of the collection for roughly $55 shipped, and this guy is including stuff that's not normally in the set too.

If you wanna go the cheap route, you can hope this (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kings-Quest-Collection-Series-PC-1999-/120783090826?pt=Video_Games_Games&hash=item1c1f3bb48a) doesn't get bid up, and then just download the documentation later from replacementdocs.org.
