But what is an original? any floppy?

Well, since now they're not used anymore, any floppy disk would be OG.

I would say it's the 5 1/4" floppy like you used on your good ole Apple IIc.

I have nine available, by the way. Anyone want to trade?

You're right. See->

History of Floppy

8" was available in 1971, 5 1/4" was produced in 1978.
But what's a few years among friends? I'm hoping that KR will consider both sizes "original" floppy discs. I'm almost tapped out on my scavenger funds. ](*,)

Actually the first game that I thought of was "Swiss Family Robinson" :lol:

...not to mention that seeing that floppy was a sweet reminder of the ol' Commodore 64 days!
