According to some collector's list there seems to exist Siera games between 1 and 38, and also A.

I haven't seen any Siera 39, 40...

Does anybody knows if Siera only released games until 38?

Siera A does exist and there is a photo on www.videopac.org to confirm this. I think that it's the only copy so far to surface as for the others, if we take a quick look at Maurice's excellent list 7,8,12,13,16,17,19,20,21,29,30,33,37, and then 40,41,42,43,44,45,46,47 haven't been confirmed. Siera 5 was thought not to exist but I bought a copy on ebay 2 years ago. I would say that Siera is the most mis-understood of all the VP's to collect.

I've seen Siera 13. Maybe others too, but I'm not sure about those.
My guess would be that Siera released games up to 40 or so, we just need to find 'em Smiley

I recently saw a pic of a Siera A on another website, but I forget where. I suspect steelballs :
http://www.xs4all.nl/~lipscm/Museum/Philips%20videopac/Videopacs%20list.txt
=====
Changes in v.0.74
- Added Siera A, thanks Steph!
=====

Actually a quick search just confirmed that, scroll down for two pics of Siera A, a real nice collection Steph  Smiley :

Here's mine if your doing a list! :
http://www.videopac.com/siera.html

So I can confirm as far as 38. I believe another collector also has a Siera 31, but I don't know if it's complete. I'm sure mine is missing the correct top to the box.

I think I have 2 different versions of 18. Not sure about the details, but it was something about the manual or front cover.

@grgh. Nice pics Smiley The 31 outer box is a cheaply made white cardboard box with a "Siera Videopac 31" paper stuck to it.

I bet you have one version with just the black and white instructions as a cover, and the other with just the colour sheet as a cover. I believe that most Siera games should come with both bits in one.

If you look at my Siera page, you'll see what I mean with a pic of all the bits in a Siera 1, but by 38 it was just a single sheet.

Of course, if you do have a variation I'd love to see it  Smiley

me too! :-) But I can't get to my Siera games now, they're "somewhere" in a box. I plan to dig out some stuff soon and will make some pics then. I really can't remember the difference between the two versions, sorry.

According to my files, I have the following Siera games:

1, 2, 4, 6, 10, 11, 15, 18 (2x), 22 (2x), 24 (2x), 25, 26, 27, 28, 31, 32, 34, 35, 36 (2x), 38

The following games aren't verified (according to unreleased videopac.txt v0.75)

7, 12, 13, 16, 20, 29, 30, 33, 37, 39 and up.

(But I think I recall having seen a 13 in an auction, some time ago?)
