Quoted from ForceFlow:

Although it's a lot of fun, it isn't an A-list title. From what I understand, years ago they were so incredibly unpopular that they were parted out for their boards, which is a large contributing factor in their rarity today.

I had a PERFECT one I took to CAX in 2006, had a $1600 price on it, and couldn't sell it. It was VERY unpopular until pretty recently.

Fun game, but it's a B title for sure.

Lol Vic, this game comes up often as a game we regret passing on to this day.

Ha! Do you remember the one I brought?

I put NOS plastics in it, a new window, replated the habitrails, new pop bumper skirts/bodies/caps...very nice.

I looked up the emails from that time, the price was actually $1995, not $1600. I think I took one or two hundred less in the end.

Quoted from gunstarhero:

Yep, pretty sure it’s that exact game. $1600 is the price that we remember tho so who knows, it was a while ago. Just another if I knew then what I know now, lol.

I might have marked it down to try to move it. $1995 is what I had in the emails around that time, but that's the only written record I have of it. $1600 is what I remembered it not selling at, and if you remember the same, it probably is what I marked it down to. At that price today, I would have kept it!

Quoted from shacklersrevenge:

Having played Congo a bunch, it's nowhere near A status to me, I would never chase that title.
Whitewater? I can understand that one, but not Congo. I understand people have a real hard one for it, so to each their own.

Yeah, definitely not "A", more like "Ehhh". Fun game but at the lower end of the Bs. Went for C money for a long time.
