I know that they're relatively awful... but I still want to play/beat them...

Does anybody know where I can get all three, plus something that plays CD-i stuff?

I think your best option is to search Youtube for some videos...most of the CD-I games + Philips CD-I players are rare right now and on ebay for ridicolous prices.

If you REALLY want to get them somewhere Ebay is your best bet...or maybe a shop that specialises in videogames.

I played them, and they are horribly bad so much that they are good again because of it.

I found 4 copies Wand of Gamelon on Amazon for around $55... if I had extra money, I'd buy one... Maybe I will anyway...

The thing is, I still need something to play it on... what would work?

Found WoG on eBay for $10.49 +S&H

Placed my bid. 3 days left.

Faces of Evil is for about $50 if I buy it now.

GAH PayPal... why do you take 3-5 Business Days to show stuff on my bank statement?

Congrats to you...those are some real collectors items.

I must say...they are so bad they are hilariously awesome at the same time so...maybe you'll have fun playing them.

I'm hoping so...

Of course, first I have to see if my bank will secure PayPal... because otherwise, the offers will pass, and I'll have to keep looking...

The system's on there, too... $40... cool.

Zelda's Adventure is around $160 at the cheapest, so I'll hold out on that for now.

Why do these people only want PayPal? I have a checking account and a credit card, and they both work... Gah...

...Unless... I can find an emulation...

Emulation is probably the best solution for now.

I've never done that stuff before...

Where do I go/how do I get it to work?

NOTE: I have no idea whatsoever if these sites are...reliable...but most ROM sites are practicly fine as far as me expierences go

What appears to be the only site into CD-I emulation

I saw that, but I have no idea what any of it means... nor do I see the games anywhere...

Well, assuming that you have a CD drive, you should be able to just pop the disk in and play it with the Emulator... I do that with PS1 games all the time. Of course, PS1 is a bit more popular than the CD-i

Well... that settles that then...

I went to Amazon and looked at the copy that seemed the most trustworthy for the least about (amounting to about $61). Accidentally clicked "1-Click Buy" instead of "Add to Shopping Cart". So... yeah. Getting Wand of Gamelon sometime next week.

New news:

WoG shipped today! Woo!

Currently bidding on a Philips CD-i system complete with controller, stereo hook-up, and power cord. Plus some ABC Sports game, but I'll probably get rid of that pretty quick. The bidding ends tomorrow at around 9:15 CST. At that time, I will know if I have the system to play my game on. I'm also looking at buying Faces of Evil for $40.

If the above happens, all I'll need is Zelda's Adventure.
