Overview -  Front cover -  Back cover -  Inside cover 1 -  Inside cover 2 -  Floppy -  Booklet -  Card -  Card PC -  Sticker version -  PC version -  Alternate PC manual -  Special double edition -  Australian edition -  Australian inlay -  Australian tape and manual -  Australian re-release -  Swedish tape version

The US disk version has an elegant LP-style double foldout cover, containing the floppy, a small booklet (or, coming from a mystery edition, a large booklet) and a standard Accolade warranty card. There has been a cartoon character sticker on at least some of the the original games, presumably to give the impression of a new product, while reusing the old packaging. I also put similar-looking editions from other countries here.

Note how the warranty for the PC edition lists more computer and game types, a nice documentation af a rapidly evolving market.

The Australian tape version came in videotape style clamshell case, with a charmingly handmade, typewritten "addendum to manual", explaining how to load from tape, and a $5000 giveaway promo by Ozi Soft, the distributor. Unfortunately the original owner apparently took part in the promo, so I have no details.
The manual is shorter than the standard one; see the comparison page for details.
