The majority of them are unknowns. That could make them either worthless or priceless, depending on who is interested.

The more major ones would go for a few bucks each. (Bards Tale, Beyond Zork, Ultima, Leather Goddess, Wizardry, Neuromancer, Pirates...)

Are any of them specifically marked for Apple IIgs ONLY? If so, I'd be interested.

You need some pictures to show overall condition (water/mold/physical damage could make them pretty much worthless, mint condition would greatly add to the value).

The 2 expensive games prices may be way off but I was able to find some others on ebay and the sellers were asking for 135.00 a piece. That doesnt mean there ever going to get that though. So i just threw a price on them to see what happens

All the games are in excellent condition

Interesting, wouldn't have thought to look in that category for vintage games although it makes sense. A lot of folks put it under vintage computing then another subcategory.

Pretty much the right thing to do though, ebay will have a huge audience and stretches across probably the largest variety of incomes and collectors and competition. Best of luck!

btw the last few Ultima games I saw went way beyond my budget last minute so if you want a quick buck you might consider posting that one. I suppose mileage may vary depending on the platform (these were PC versions) but for whatever reason I don't think any of them sold for under $50. (I'm kinda guessing, but I recall several going for $80s which surprised me) I expected the Ultima 1 of course to go for what it did but I did NOT expect 5 or other versions to go for so much.

Could you make a clarification? You listed starfleet 2? I did not think that game was released for the apple ][. Could you check?

Just thought I would update this a little I have put around 15-20 of these on ebay and all have sold for around 20 apiece. The a dnd games went for 34.95 a piece. I have not sold any of the more expensive ones yet

Seems like there is less of a selection these days so things do sell, not sure if ebay fees keep people from listing or the supply has been purchased by the hoarders/resellers.

Even with things made in the many hundreds of thousands, sooner or later they will start getting harder to find (if anyone at that point cares).

Greetings,

How did you come out with your search on the games? Are you selling them or just wanted to know the value?
