That is a good question but they do appear to still exist at an exorbitant price.

Yeah that's a bit much lol. Looks close to the one I had as a kid but I think mine only came with Mouse Trap.

Well, and the box isn't even pristine.  I'd want this to be sealed and pristine if I were to pay that price!  LOL

That was the only game I was missing from my collection of Starpath games.  I think I got it last year, new in box, for $60.  Had I known...

I could not, not share this!  The seller has sent me an offer!  Look, look!  I got a whopping $701 discount!

Here is another one of these pissy auctions:  Crazy Climber Sealed Atari 2600 Club Game Rare NIB .  I know this game is rare but not this level of rarity.  ;)

So many scalpers around now. Even if you are in the mad market for this there are far too many fakes around now. I doubt anyone on the open market would deal with items like this. This sort of thing would change hands in forums, discord servers or FB groups etc.

Agreed. Always fun to watch these to see what happens. I think the seller for the Starpath game was "nice" to offer me a lower price.  He needed to give it a 90% discount to make the price fair. Same with this other game.
