    I found online this copy of Labyrinth. The seller set the price to 350$ 1 month ago and now
    he reset the price to 200$. I know it's pretty rare and that's the first Lucas Arts game.
    Box has several scratches but the content seems to be complete. It's a Commodore 64 version.
    They ever did an IBM version of it?

    How much do you think its real value is?

    It`s somewhat subjective matter, but personally I wouldn`t pay 200$ for this piece because box condition is big factor for me. Apparently it`s missing some original content too (Activision booklet?). Some other members are in better position to say how often Labyrinth boxes appear on ebay. There is one sealed version right now with the prize tag 1499€ ;)

    Museum doesn`t say anything about that Activision booklet.. Is it something that belongs to original content of the box or not?

    I'm pretty much useless when it comes to information about this game (not part of my collection).


    Regarding the Activision booklet:

    The museum rarely documented the "misc" paperwork.

    Seeing that catalog included seems normal to me, seen other games that were distributed by Activision at the same time that contained them as well.

    Also note that many 1st versions of Maniac Mansion contained an Activision "Free Catalogs" offer, where you could send it in to Activision and get catalogs from some of the game companies they were distributing from:

    Also common seeing "Bonus Checks"(mail in discounts/offers on games) catalogs included at the time (featured offers from the game companies that Activision distributed for)

    Also included in some of the the first releases of Zak McKracken:

    Assume they changed the catalog to "Bonus Checks" when Zak McKracken was initially released.

    As always, thanks for all the information!
    Yeah, I never played it too, but I thought it could be cool to have it just to complete
    all the Lucas Films/Arts games collection.

    Never played it either, but I would still love to have it in my collections too. Lucas is always Lucas :) I`m waiting right time and right box to appear :)

    Funny... I've never played it either... Kind of makes me wonder how many collectors on this forum have actually played it. :)

    I actually have it emulated with Applewin and I tried to play a few minutes
    but the interface is something really old school :)
    Something in between old text adventure and SCUMM. There is a sort of wheel with some
    verbs or object you can select and you move the character with the arrow keys.

    Nice to see some activity here again. Ive had two sealed Labyrinths in the past. The first one I think I sold for $400. Other one I sold in 2016 for 800€ I think. It had few issues too but was signed by Gary Winnick.

    Dont have any clues of open copies values.
