Comments The seller (Ian) wrote to me:

Hi Jon,
Thank you for the payment for Octopus,
I'll get it out to you by special delivery tomorrow, The box will be so well
packed that you could hit it with a cruise missile and it would survive.
I actually remember selling these when I used to own a computer games shop
in the eighties, they used to sell for £19.99.
When I saw similar ones in a collectors book I went back to the warehouse
where I used to get them from and behind a old box of radios was the box of
nintendo games ... 26 asst in all. I haggled and got them for next to
nothing.
It's a one off find, I was very lucky

Comment from Jon: He had 8 Egg games (NIB), 6 x Chef, 6 x Tropical Fish and 6 x Octopus.

Now that's what I call lucky!!! Still makes my head spin. :-)
