September 5, 2020: 1982 Newspaper Advertisement For The Classic Pocket Box


While recently exploring newspaper archives, I ran across this ad block for Craft King in Arlington, Texas . . . from close to four decades ago! This ad is from the October 13, 1982, issue of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and is a real treat for the Car Wars, Ogre, and Undead fans in the world! 

I've no idea how many stores were advertising our different games in mainstream newspapers back in the early eighties, but I am certain that surprises like this are an unusual treasure and not something we can stumble across every day.
