An apparently rare Atari game called Red Sea Crossing was found in a perhaps unlikely place last week: South Philly’s Medium Bob’s Curiosity Shop.

(Actually, if you’ve ever been in Medium Bob’s, you’ll know it’s kind of a magical place so this doesn’t surprise us.)

Even stranger, the shop’s owners found the game a few days before the “only” copy was set to go up for auction.
