More Information Edit | History

From the editor's note page:

Several decades ago, James Thurber wrote what was to become one of his most widely-read stories, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. Almost everyone can identify with Thurber's small, hen-pecked hero and his big, swashbuckling daydreams; who of us has never wanted to escape, if only for a little while, to a different life?

Because humans are imaginative and competitive beings, games have probably been played since the birth of the species. Today's information explosion has led to a corresponding increase in the numbers and subjects of games available. The amount of leisure time at our disposal and rising prices for almost all forms of recreational activity have encouraged us to spend more of this time playing games.

There is almost no period of history, type of sport, or form of strategy not represented in today's games. You can break the bank at Monte Carlo, pit football teams of yesterday against those of today, snatch a king's ransom from beneath a sleeping dragon, control the political and cultural forces of the Reformation, command Napoleon's Old Guard at Waterloo, or search for the source of the Nile. You can drive a tank into the streets of Stalingrad, oppose a computerized chess partner, command a starship, or match wits with Sherlock Holmes. Some of the smaller electronic games allow you to hold an invasion from space in the palm of your hand.

We urge you to check the Yellow Pages for stores in your area that carry games before writing directly to the manufacturers. All of the prices shown in the catalog were correct as of the summer of 1880 and are subject to change. The prices were listed to provide you with a means for comparison. The catalog has been carefully indexed and cross-indexed for easy reference.

Almost every type of game available today is represented in this catalog, from variations on games played by the ancient Chinese to the latest computer cassettes. We hop you will enjoy reading through the GamesMaster Catalog as much as we enjoyed putting it together. Turn the page, it's your move!
