Cool, I live in Western Michigan. (around Grand Rapids)  You have actually found Jananese Odyssey 2 games in MI?  I have trouble finding any O2 carts in person here.

The Japanese games I got in a bulk purchase from ebay.  I didn't even know they were in the group until they arrived.  The carts I have seen in Michigan have all been common US versions.  I'm surprised more Canadian games haven't made it back over the border.

Me too, I have a real hard time finding any carts in person.  In fact, I have only bought carts in person twice in the last few years.

I've been looking at the pic of the stuff I'm waiting for to try and work out which ones may be Canadian (attached).

I've based this on comparing the top line of text above the 'odyssey2' logo with my existing o2 games:
LEFT:
   YES   bowling/basketball
   YES   cosmic conflict
   YES   monkeyshines
MIDDLE:
   MAYBE invaders from hyperspace
   MAYBE las vegas blackjack
   NO    standard philips
RIGHT:
   YES   freedom fighters
   YES   ufo
   MAYBE speedway/spinout
FRONT:
   YES   computer golf
   YES   football

He also lists kc crazy chase in the description but I dont see that in the pic.

This however doesn't fit with the website that said there were only these 11 Canadian versions:

- Alien Invaders-Plus!/Envahisseurs Extra-Terrestres!
- Armored Encounter! Sub Chase!/Bataille De Blindes! Chasse Aux Sous-Marins!
- Baseball!
- Blockout! Breakdown!/Demolition! Destruction!
- Computer Golf/Golf Electronique!
- K.C.'s Crazy Chase/La Grande Chasse De Broyefer
- K.C. Munchkin!/K.C. Broyefer!
- Monkeyshines!/Singeries!
- Pocket Billiards!/Billiard A Blouses!
- Thunderball!/Machine A Boules!
- UFO!/Guerre Aux Ovnis!

So either my comparison method is completely flawed,or that website was not accurate, just have to wait and see...

Well bits of it, if you look at the end of the previous page in this thread, O2William says:

As far as I can tell, Odyssey2 games were distributed in Canada in two ways.  Originally they imported the American games but packaged them in a cardboard slipcover.

So there might be a bit more to discover, and I am waiting for another box from Canada with some paperbox videopacs so there might be something more to discover there.

And of course they might even have made a dual language console box!?

I've received another box of Canadian videopacs this morning, including several paperbox versions. I'll sort it all later and let you know what I find.

What I can tell you is that the box is English only, the cartridge label is both languages, and the manuals I didn't look at yet because I was leaving for work.

I'm still waiting for the Canadian console box to arrive, but since then I haven't seen any Canadian sets come up for sale.
