Super rare to find the box, because it was designed to be barely more than disposable. This release was put out before Infocom published games themselves in elaborate packaging -- this box is pretty plain and is really just a substitute for the plastic baggie that was the more common type of packaging of those early days. The box has a cut-out front so the manual can be seen in the same way it'd be visible in a baggie. In fact, Personal Software used a common box for all of its software, simply adding a label to the rear lower right corner to distinguish different products.The manual and disk are in near-mint condition. Front of the manual is excellent, rear of the manual has just the slightest of shelfwear. The box has significant wear -- several small tears and creases, and a bigger rip in the upper right corner. Personal Software published the earliest versions of Zork, for the TRS-80 in plastic baggies and for the Apple II in this black box. Manual features a picture of the story's protagonist battling the troll in front of the white house.
Sometimes called the "Barbarian" Zork version, although that's a bit of a misnomer. Please ask any questions about this unique item.
