    Smells like 1977...

    I scored this beauty at a flea market recently. The box is in great shape (for 31 years old) and ALL of the pieces and cards were intact. Including the instructions! This really took me back. As you can see my son loves it and is very serious about his board games. Not bad for $5.00!

    Still have mine in the cedar chest. Can you believe I've only played it once! My brother couldn't figure it out, what a knucklehead.

    Nice find! Traders World is the bomb! I used to live about 10 minutes from there. Now it's more like 2 hours. But it's well worth the drive.

    Awesome!!! I found the same game a few years back still in shrink wrap at a local store/warehouse that was closing down. You wouldn't believe all the cool stuff this old guy had stockpiled in the back!!! Sadly, it got ruined, (along with alot of my other SW items) when my basement flooded in 2006.
