Australian Card Games
Post Posted: Thu Oct 14, 2004 9:46 am
I just noticed on a Ghost House Card from Australia:
It has english only back/manual, like an US version, but:

- No "Sega of America" mention.
- The product number on the side (US game don't have those usually).

So it's kinda in-between European and US games.
Does anyone has other Australian card games?
Until now I thought they were just imports.

I've got an Australian Great Soccer and the boxed Hang On.

Like your Ghost House, they've both got an English-only box (and manual for Great Soccer, I'm missing the Hang On manual but am pretty sure that's the same), part numbners on the spine and no SoA credit.

All of the games that I own are Australian (I'm from Australia) except 2 carts which have "Made in Japan" on them. Sega had carts being made here by OziSoft. You can see a picture of my Spellcaster cart that I posted a while back in the dev forum section as it had a 315-5365 mapper chip. I also posted a pic of the cart's casing, which has coarser plastic and no sticker on the back of them.

Hey Bock

This kind of style is inconsistant and rarely seen on boxes, but I can confirm that it is seen. Ozisoft went through a funny process after being born by Sega Japan between '85-87 after John Sands Electronics went bust (Some early card games/systems may have being managed by John Sands. If I can get my hands on registration cards, etc I can confirm this)
