MULE Box

Unseen for almost 30 years, M.U.L.E. for the IBM PCjr

MULE Box

An alert Retroist reader pointed out that one of the games I unboxed in an earlier video is actually pretty rare. You can see that glorious unboxing here.

I had no idea M.U.L.E. for the PCjr was a collector’s item, but I did know that it is a fantastic game. Some compare the game to Monopoly, but that doesn’t do it justice since M.U.L.E. encompasses so many different gaming elements. The IBM PCjr version of the game may not be the best version of M.U.L.E. ever created, but it is interesting that IBM thought highly enough of the game that they sponsored it for the PCjr platform. The following video is, I believe, the only known video of M.U.L.E. gameplay on this particular platform.
