So, I was about to sell my Queens Gambit, but I noticed something odd.

Has anyone every seen. New game with this kind of factory Shrinkwrap? Or is this a re-shrunk game?


Please voice your opinions. Google was useless to me.

Looks re-wrapped... but I had a Buffy the Vampire Slayer game that looked like that, thinking it was re-wrapped, opened it, of course it was new.
So... there you go.

Not necessarily a re-wrap.

That can also happen when you are splicing in a new roll of shrink-wrap on the machine.

Tough to convince the buyer it's not a re-wrap I suppose.

Where would they get the wrap? At someplace like Staples?

If you bought it new at a store I would be confident that it is just crappy wrapping. I mean, the game is from 2000, so who knows what they used for shrink wrap back when flip phones were cool.

To rewrap you'd also need some sort of heat shrinker, I would think, to get that nice seam on the side there. Not sure though with that Blair Witch style photo :)
