This post does not pertain to video games per se but it does deal with an selection of 80's games. I remember looking at this page for the Sear'sWishbook catalog because I was very, very tempted to ask for the Star Frontiers set. But considering it was my grandparents on my mother's side...I wisely knew not to ask for anything TSR related.
If you find yourself dropping into the Victory Pellet vault sometime remind me to tell you the story of how one of my Preachers caught me as a youth playing the Dungeon board game. Hilarity ensued.
