Dear all

Hi there, been cleaning my office - well moving stuff around and came across

TSR RIDDLE of the RUNES box and CD with instructions.

My query is simple - is it collectible and can a value be placed on it?
Ebay or sale potential here ?

Not really worth much of anything, unless you are a completist.  there are usually several of them on eBay at any given time.  You could check completed auctions to see what type of price they are selling for.  Most don't sell and just get recycled over and over though.

It's a screen saver / puzzle game, which was developed for Windows 3.1 and Windows 95.  I haven't pulled mine out to see if it will still work on later OSs, but it's doubtful.  Maybe you could do an install to see?

It won't work as a screensaver in Windows XP and later, but should still work as a puzzle game.

You should be able to get it to work with the newer OS's.  The have a "compatibility mode" that you can run it in so it simulate older versions of windows.
