So one of my main collections was loads of clue books, hint books and solution archive books. I sold a lot off but this is some of what I have left.
first up we have some mish mash of Ultima guides, then we have some Ultima books.
(My U6 has the nice c64 addendum sheet in it). The U3 is a late run 1st edition. I stupidly sold my very early 1st edition with penciled address + phone number of Garriots house address. This has the typed address that is pre 1987 company move.
There are two variations I think of the Ultima Collection book, and two variations (or editions) of the Official Book of Ultima;
The Epyx collection; I have this because its the only known 'real' cluebook for any of the Questron Engine games, Legend of Blacksilver.
Aw yeah. Zak! and an awesome Amiga game, Faery Tale. Oh and Dragon Wars, I couldn't find my Bards Tale cluebooks. Some Sierra stuff.
Some australian made ones from the Australian Commodore Amiga Review magazine which I posted to loads. omg. I also have piles of the photocopied hint sheets the magazine would send out if you sent in and requested, also loads of my correspondance from people from the magazine (remember that, snail mail! people would write and ask for a hint and send a SAE and you'd post back.. aaah so many people didnt have modems for BBS).
The ubiquitous Quest for Clues
Some of the Quest for Clues followups (and the two Book of Adventures for Kim Schuette)
Some Quest for Clues follow ups and a hard to find Tunnels And Trolls (man what a bad bad bugged game!)
Lost Treasure 1 from my Infocom Collection. Some Kings Quest and Compute's Computer Adventure Games book (not that good)
Aaah the Gold box; Some rare ones you don't much see in here (Heroes of the Lance, Dragons of Flame, Shadow Sorcerer) and some mono-colour cheap reprints (Not sure why they bothered with the monochrome reprints).
The Eye of the Beholder ones with variants, Buck Rogers...
Missing from here in a box somewhere is the Bards Tale ones, Wasteland, Fountain of Dreams, Ultima 7+8, Maniac Mansion, Magic Candle series.. Some Might and Magic and Wizardry (not complete sets) and other misc game stuff.
I don't really have any console stuff or modern stuff.
Funny to think these have all traveled the world with each time I moved.
Anyone else here collect this kind of stuff?
