Friday Fun – Guess Our Latest Acquisition

mystery game

After running out of space, we were forced to take a break from buying new games, but after the response to our launch, we’re aggressively buying games again.  The random trips for games in one of the more entertaining things that we get to do.  On any given day, you never know where you may have to travel too, but you have to be quick enough, you can get them.  Today, my co-founder Tim left Antioch at 3:30 in the morning, in order to scoop up our latest cheap game.  While he’s on a road trip beefing up our supply, I thought we’d use the game as our subject for this week’s Friday Fun guessing contest.  Last week, it only took two photos before someone figured out that it was a Smash TV that we had restored.  This week, you’ll have to see how you do without photo hints.  Every hour, I’ll leave a hint of what game he’s going after and you see if you can guess the title, in the comments.  Once someone guesses the game or Tim gets back with it, we’ll update the blog post with the answer.

Hint #1 – The game is a sequel of an earlier hit

Hint #2 – While commonplace today, this game was one of the first to include 7-11 advertisements in the game play

Hint #3 – Weighing in at over 250 lbs. this is one of our heavier games to move

Hint #4 – The game was made by Atari

Hint #5 – It’s a car racing title

Hint #6 – It arrived and is sitting in the back of our truck 🙂

      Championship Sprint was the the sequel to Super Sprint… they were released on the same hardware at the same time.

    it’s a good guess since Super Sprint is Atari. Championship Sprint would have been the sequel, but this particular racer was Pole Position II
