Handheld Electronic Game
Complete In Original Box
Conic was one of the many
electronic game producers who jumped on the bandwagon when Mattel hit
it big in the late 1970's. To be fair most of their games were slightly
better than those issued by Mattel and Coleco but they did not offer
anything truly innovative. Incidentally, nowhere on the game unit, box
or instructions, does it state who manufactured this version of the
game. It is however widely known that Conic was in fact the
The game console is in
EXCELLENT condition. All buttons, switches and sounds work as they
should. Battery cover is present and battery compartment is clean. Just
some minor scuffing, particularly on the label on the back. I would
grade it 7 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).
The game parts are in VERY
GOOD-EXCELLENT condition. The instructions have some creases from being
carelessy stuffed into the box, but no tears, stains or writing. The
foam inserts are in great shape. I would grade the parts 6-7 on a 10
scale (see condition guide below).
The game box is in
EXCELLENT condition. There is some light crushing and a few small chips
on the corners and edges. No stains or writing. All flaps are intact.
One small tear where the flap attaches at the top of the box. The foam
inserts are in great shape. I would grade the box a 7 on a 10 scale
(see condition guide below).
(10): I will only give this grade
to brand new, unused items. NEAR MINT (9):
Shows virtually no use. Seldom if ever played.
Perhaps some very light scuffing to the back of the
console. Packing materials, instructions and other paperwork
will show almost no signs of handling. Boxes will have
the slightest hint of shelf wear. EXCELLENT (7-8):
The game has seen some use but it was obviously well taken care of.
Console will have more noticable scuffing, maybe
light wear visible on the screen or in the button area.
Paperwork may have some light handling creases.
Packing materials may have a light stain or small chips but will be
intact and free cracking. Boxes will have light
rubbing to the artwork,
some minor creasing, small tears on the flaps or a small stain.
VERY GOOD (5-6):
The game was not especially well cared for but it still has
faired pretty well. Some obvious scuffing from play but all
labels intact and readable. Perhaps a very minor chip on the
edge. Paperwork will have some handling creases and may be
lightly stained or have some writing. Original packing
materials may be damaged but will be intact. Box will have
rubbing, light staining, creasing, small tears, minor
writing and/or a few pieces of tape. Might have a
missing flap. No major
damage and artwork will still be generally attractive. GOOD (3-4):
Obviously no care was taken with the game but it is still playable as
is. Console will show heavy use but will not be seriously
damaged in any way. May have a few burnt out LED but is
still playable as is. Paperwork will have heavy handling wear
and may be torn and taped back together. Box
may have staining, writing, heavy creases, tears and/or other
structural damage but it will be intact and still
Only suitable to fill a space in your collection.
Game may be seriously damaged or inoperable.
Paperwork will be badly torn. Box will have major
