And once more a rare promotional version of Game&Watch was discovered:
A Blaupunkt Parachute!
Blaupunkt GmbH is a German manufacturer of electronics equipment, noted for its home and car audio equipment. It was a 100% subsidiary of Robert Bosch GmbH until March 1, 2009 (Date of closing).
The game was discovered outside of ebay. The previous owner of the game was first owner. He told, that such promo games were given to staff members of the company. They were supposed to give the games to their customers. But many promo game found its way to the home of the staff members instead, for their kids....
Many thanks to our member gameandwatch for providing the information and the pictures!
|The Swiss TV channel SRF 1 shows a TV commercial from the Swiss federal railways. Their slogan is Former Prices.
Many cool items from the 80ies are shown and among them, you can spot a Donkey Kong DK-52 as well! Unfortunately the TV commercial ist very fast, so look closely!

I have already reported a few times on rare promotional versions of Game & Watch games. And it was always hard to believe that there should be more of other such games.
But again such a rarity appeared: A Snoopy Tennis with a special stop-logo and the inscription HYDRAULIQUE DE FREINAGE. Literally translated, this means: Hydraulic brakes.
The game is currently on sale on ebay:
Many thanks to our member gameandwatch who reported this auction.
Update: The seller has sent me better pictures of the game. Thank you very much!
Update 2: The game was sold for EUR 690.00.
