Do Major League Baseball and NFL Football also exist in Euro versions or have those two only been released in the US?

Das taugt mir!

Aber mit wenig Ei bitte …

There were european editions of them both indeed.I have Baseball with even german instructions in my collection.Unfortuantely I didn´t manage to find the Football equivalent yet.

Please notice the missing “Major League” printing and logo:

LOL!!

Thanks for the info Norman, I am still missing both. Have been looking for them only as Euro versions but never found them, so I guessed they were only released in the US. So I'll keep looking! smile

Well, both of my two games are US versions. NFL Football has a 'Playbook' 2610-0950 (C) included besides the manual.

I own the german Baseball version since the good old days of ´84. Smile

It was one of my favorite games and I often played it with my brother in law.

Football was also released in germany, but only with english instructions.

Probably because of very little interest for this sport in germany at this time.

That would explain why I am searching for the German Football version for decades now LOL

They just sold the US version in Europe, right? I mean the box is also the US version?

There is also an international Football box without the official NFL logo.But unfortunately I had never seen a copy of this game in the stores back in the early days. So I cannot confirm the existence of this variant on the german market.

I see.

Would also be interesting to know if the backside of the European box is with English text (like all the regular US releases) or if it is empty with just the picture, and the holes for the manual like all the regular European releases.

Das taugt mir!

Ok, so it is a European box. As it has the holes for the manuals in different languages on the back side, it looks like they were planning the manuals in different languages, but it seems they didn't translate the English manual ...
