My wife borrowed a Vectrex from a colleague at work. We played around with it today and I was actually surprised how fun some of the games are. It came with following games CiB:

Soccer Football
Flipper Pinball
Scramble
Hyper Chase
Armor..Attack
Space Wars
Cosmic Chasm
Clean Sweep
Berzerk
Fortress Of Narzod
Ripp Off

All of the manuals and Boxes are there but the Boxes and cards are in rather bad condition. The guy told her he is willing to sell it. However, I can't tell what a fair price would be.

Anyone a good guess?

Wow! How much for everything? Vectrex stuff is EXTREMELY expensive. Good thing Richard, maker of the flash boy, makes one for Vectrex, too. :)

The vectrex is an awesome console.
I think minestorm is making flash cards for it you can ask him if you are interested.

I recently bought one for £110, no box, good condition, all working, it came with a 72 in 1 cart containing all games and some homebrew. I'm very pleased with it.
It sure is a good console, nothing looks like it graphically, and the games are fun.

I would love to get a Vectrex myself.

Love vector graphics and love the 80's feel of the machine. Generally speaking they are silly expensive at the moment for a working one...

Would love to get one though..

Fortress Of Narzod is a personal favourite. Interestingly there is a version of FON for the C64 which I do own. Its very enjoyable and almost the exact same as the Vectrex game. Very awesome!

I am trying to find interesting 'substitutes' for Vectrex games. I don't think its right to just emulate although having said that, the ParaJVE project is looking very good:

Hope you get one soon thunderstruck!!

My wife actually ask the owner what he would guess what the Vectrex including all games would be worth. He guessed 40$, so I could have bought it for a pretty low price. He was pretty surprised when my wife told him the actual value.

Oh man, you missed out if you didn't get that. I bought a Vectrex last year from Craigslist here in Colorado -- US$80, no box or games, just the unit and the controller. It was a great deal, though! I love to pull the thing out and show it to people. People just don't see displays like that these days...

I *really* need to pick up one of those flash carts one of these days...
