Magnavox Odyssey² – Canadian Games Rarity List

Canadian Games List
Canada has always been a particular place when it comes to cover arts. Since Canada is a bilingual country (English & French), distributor tends to provide  bilingual cover arts  and instruction, especially in Quebec were the vast majority of the French Canadian reside. In the case of the Odyssey², the system and the software were distributed by Philips Canada. To address the issue,  Philips added a cardboard slipcover over the U.S. Box. The slipcover would include the game title and description printed in both official language and would only cover the edge of the box, letting the main illustration visible in the center of the cover.

Theses boxes are probably the rarest as they were often thrown away. The later Canadian released used the same plastic box used by Philips to distribute the games in Europe. The box contained the French and English manuals and a bilingual cover.

Since Canada was not a huge market in terms of population and that U.S. games were also sold in Canada, the bilingual Canadian release are generally rarer than their U.S. equivalent.

Rarity is very subjective and may vary over time and do not always correlate with the price of a game. The information is provided as a general guidance source and should be used with precaution.

C = Common, U = Uncommon, R = Rare, VR = Very Rare, ER = Extremely Rare.
