$50 for KQ5? Seems a little high... I got my copy of KQ6 on eBay for only $15.

This has a Buy It Now! price of $7.00, for instance:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=62053&item=8104248917&rd=1

or $14 for the CD version:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=62053&item=8104260083&rd=1

As for getting ripped off, just check the seller's feedback comments and ratings, and that'll almost always get you by. I've had 30+ auctions on eBay and only got gipped once, and my roommate's won even more auctions than that and only had a problem once.

Peace & Luv, Liz

thanks alot for those prices, i must be blind or something i didnt see any.

As much as i want to, I can't buy 'em. Like i said...many times i have tried Ebay and got ripped off. Im sick of it. I just won't play the game is all. But im not gonig to risk losing my money again.

(In case your wondering, it would be for a fourth time, too)

AGDI makes remakes of Sierra's old games. The whole thing is put up by themselves.

What Yonkey meant is that we don't pirate Sierra's original games, (even if they are out of print). As he said, you may find such copies on Ebay. I'd recommend you to try one of the versions of the King's Quest Collection.

Yeah, sorry.  By warez I meant pirated software.  AGDI's games are freeware and are allowed to be downloaded for free.  Sierra's games, on the other hand, are not.  ;D

I'd imagine that the 50.00 items you saw probably WERE the KQ Collections. Those things go for a LOT, whereas the individual games are much cheaper.

I saw the collection for $10 and that is including postage and handling ;D

That must've been the opening bid only. I've never seen those things go for so little!

Yeah, everyone can just forget it though. Im not oging on Ebay...wasted too much money on it. And I cant find a pirate version....

...and by the way, i don't wan't you all getting the imptession i get all games for free. In fact...I have only got liek 1 pirated version in the past...and i have never done it again. Its just with such an old game and i don't trust Ebay, it doesn't leave many choices. So, I don't get free games...I just ask around if its an noly option.

Thanks.
