Cry Havoc - How Much To Pay?

The Game

Many of you try to buy game boxes while the game is no longer available in stores.

For complete boxed games, you will have to check on the web.  This page is intended to help you figure out what the right price is and avoid bad surprises. Data comes mostly from transactions on eBay. Shipping charges are not included in the prices.

Please note that unlike what sellers would like you to believe, finding these boxes on eBay is fairly easy: Over 400 transactions have been recorded between July 2004 and December 2005. The "fair" prices are mentioned in the table below.

Bargain prices can be found in countries other than the US, UK or France. So don't forget to check on German or Italian sites: Somebody bought Cry Havoc from an Austrian seller for 10.50 Euros (about $14, or 7$) only! Don't forget to check also misspelled items: One box sold for 1 Euro only just because it was spelled "Cry Hovak"...

I have added statistics about the frequency of boxes sold per type for your reference.

For convenience, the exchange rate used is 1 Euro = 0.7 £ = US$1.3
