    Default Unexpected C64 Finds (Ultima IV and V)

    So I was visiting a friend and I happened to shop at a not-Goodwill in his hometown. You know the type, mostly clothes and old tapes nobody wants anymore. But then I found something surprising.

    Mixed in with a bunch of board games and jigsaw puzzles were an X-Files computer game (someone else bought that) and... Ultima IV and V for the Commodore 64.

    At least, that's what the label said. Ultima V actually was just the box, the cloth map and some documentation. Ultima IV, on the other hand, looks like its the complete game! Box, game disks, like three different manuals (one written entirely in rune, it seems), cloth map, reference card... the only problem is that the BACK of the box is from Ultima III, but everything else is Ultima IV.

    Even though in one case the GAME is missing entirely, I still think I got some neat swag. Oh, and it only costed me $2 altogether.

    I don't have a Commodore 64, but I do have the DOS versions of Ultima IV and V via the compilation Origin put out. So what should I do with these things? Keep them to admire, or see if I can coerce someone into trading?

    I love these two games. They're the best of the series IMO. I'd keep them and play the DOS version while reading your new manuals and maps but if you were to decide to sell them you can probably get around $50 for Ultima V on eBay and probably even $25 for the box, manuals and map for Ultima IV

    I believe I have the discs for those games, but no box or manuals. Nice find!

    Ultima IV is by far one of the best RPG computer games of all time. C64 I feel was the best version.

    Finding stuff like that at goodwill is so fun. I collect old games and would love to trade for those, anything you're looking for?

    I'm drawing a blank right now, Thraka, but if you'll PM me a list of games you're willing to part with I'll look it over.
