The backglass is really pretty in person on Zankor.
I'll tell you a funny story about that. I agreed to purchase a Zankor sight unseen because it was the only one in the USA at the time, but it didn't have a backglass. It was part of a container and was non functioning, and I mean REALLY non-functioning. It took forever for the seller to get around to it and in the meantime I found a backglass in England and paid the seller and had it shipped. Well I was ripped off and never got the backglass or my money back. That was a hard lesson.
So 6 months come around and the I am going to pick up the game without a backglass. I get a call the night before from a friend and he said "Hey, I know you like these zac games and my friend has a backglass for one, would you be interested in buying it? I asked him what was the game and he said "I dunno something about zardoz or zandor. I said Zankor? He said ya, thats it! Needless to say the next day I picked up the game AND the backglass.
I spent the next 5 months working every night fixing it though, ordering parts from all around the world, but it was worth it! What a fun game.
Quoted from archaik:
so I see we are pretty much agreeing on what I should look for
i really like time machine because its pretty but pretty boring so its a no
I know where to find a spooky but i also know its not for sale
I see you both mention soccer kings I forgot about it but could be one too
My problem is I find it very hard to buy a game I dont like from the artistic point of view, Zankor would need an alternate BG, but anyway never seen one up for sale.
