Yeah. I spent some of the best years of my life on paper maps and cardboard counters...

Yes, this takes me back too. How may years of my life did I spend moving card board? Perhaps not enough since I occasionally yearn to push cardboard once again. I still have a complete set of SPI's PreSTAGS series and it is still fun to play.

It is a shame about the video. It is off center, distorted and flickers. Whoever owns that print should have taken it to a professional video lab rather the run it through a projector and video taped the image off the wall. The lab would have run it through a proper telecine (not a projector!) this would have eliminated the off center problem, distortion and eliminated the flicker. The lab might have also done come color correction - although this print looks so badly faded that only the magenta layer survives.

Re: SPI Infomercial
I, too, would like to push some counters again, and I have a bookcase full of games to prove it.
