I have the original light blue box but bought this one as it was so different (plus of course it has the Riven preview CD).

Just wondered what the difference was (I'll find out soon enough I guess) and why the boxes are a different colour...

And this on the back of the box?

The journal in your picture is also from the MYST Desktop Edition. Does it look the same inside as this?

OK, the Black Box version is a Limited Edition, on the front was a CD with a Riven 'Making of' movie, not the Stanford one but a shorter one that has Robyn laughing his head off over the Magalev (There is another version of this but Robyn's laughter has been clipped and there are other very minor variations - other members of Cyan being interviewed that are not in this version).
Also is the usual Myst manual/Journal - the hint envelope (unopened) and a poster of the Sunners from Riven, oh and of course the game CD for Windows 3.1! - a very nice addition to my collection.

Happy happy happy....

I plan to once I find the 'alternative' version.
The idea is to put all 3 up on my website for people to watch or download, give me a few days and I will post something up when done.
