James Maliszewski over at Grognardia, must have a pile of old magazines and catalogs a MILE deep, because he came upon some pages in the 1983 Sears Christmas Catalog that brings a tear to this cynic's eye.
Dungeons & Dragons (Metzner box), AD&D 1st Edition, Star Frontiers, Traveller, Star Fleet Battles, and the FASA Star Trek RPG all available from a mainstream retailer! It too beautiful for words. What happened to those halcyon days when gaming seemed like a wholesome, innocent thing? What happened?!?!
Oh yeah... That.
