Hi!
I recently picked up a loose copy of Virtual Bowling, pretty excited about that. My question is, I noticed that there are repros of the Virtual Bowling cart floating around, are those marked as repros?
Want to make sure that my cart is original...
Any help would appreciated, I could post a pic too if that helps.
Thanks in advance!

How's the label quality? Does it look and feel like other VB games? Does it have that little number pressed in somewhere?

If you have a fitting screwdiver you could open up the cart and have a look at the PCB to see if it's a repro.

It's fake. Send it to me for further verification.

Be sure not to use delivery confirmation.

I have some repro's in my collection...I use them to play the more expensive games, so I don't get my copies messed up. The labels on mine are very fuzzy..just made from a color printer. You could spot the difference pretty easy. They're not made to fool people..just to have a game handy to put into the VB.

Off topic for a second:

Don't know if anyone else noticed, but this is topic number 1000 in the main forum. That seems worth noting, to me at least. I mostly lurk, so I'll have to pick it up so we can get to 2000...

Looks like the cart is fine, thanks for all the feedback! Label is nice & clear, has little indented numbers, etc.
