yeah robo unless the price is reduced sharply then no one will pay over 100 bucks for just the disc and manual. i would love to have a legit copy but i will not pay that amount of money for the game without the box

Is it even worth paying for a "legit" copy anymore? I wouldn't even be able to read the media it's on anymore!
I am sure I have some old floppy drives laying about, perhaps, but really.

I would do it as a collector and as, Rorie states, it's not worth it without the box.

Someone was selling a Monster Bash CD on eBay for around that price, used. I politely asked if they'd lower their ridiculous price, and they were just like "OUR PRICES ARE FIRM. NON NEGOTIABLE"....

These CRAPPY eBay stores are selling used old games for over $20 a piece and it's disgusting that they actually make any business that way.

Just search for Monster Bash on eBay and you'll find 2 stores doing this same thing.

It sucks seeing such an important piece of my childhood in the hands of greedy idiots who have never played the game in their life.

Guybrush: At least I’ve learnt something from all of this.
Elaine: What’s that?
Guybrush: Never pay more than 20 bucks for a computer game.
Elaine: A what?
Guybrush: I don't know. I have no idea why I said that.

I can and am willing to make disk images for anyone who wants them. Just one thing - I'm not giving out my address, so unless you want to do a cloak-and-dagger-style exchange, the above information is useless...

if you wanted to play it on a newer system and if the computer rejects the floppy drive you could always buy a usb floppy drive, i have tons of the old 3.5 inch disks at home so it would make sense for me to buy one

i might have a way to reproduce K6 on someone with the demo version, but i'm not sure it'll work, and it probably violates ID rules... but it'll probably work nonetheless. hint: you need DITD, and the demo!

let's see how many people can connect the dots, pm me if you know what to do after

Someone who thinks he can sell it for $110.

if you would like monster bash so badly you can pruchase and download it from the 3drealms store for us$5.99. the weak greenback is good for australians means we can both stuff from the u.s at discounted exchange rates. when i take my trip to hawaii in may 2011 and if the aussie dollar is still strong then roughly 1 aud per 0.90 usd. i will b taking a cash passport in aussie dollars i can still use it in the u.s with it not being in usd i will just get a better rate and not loose any aussie dollars due to currency fluctuations

Remember the good ol' days of copying stuff to floppy disks? :) I probably have the keen five original somewhere, but I can't tell the difference between it and one of the other hundred er so at least floppy's in the box downstairs. :)
