Vintage Dragon Magazine Game Advertisements, Part IV

(Seriously, its an addiction. I do believe this will be my last installment on this topic for a bit, but I absolutely love looking at these old ads. They just seem so innocent, energetic, and full of optimism for having a seriously kick-ass gaming time. Plus, its just too much fun to see what was being produced and what was going on back then. Thanks to Dragon Magazine #21 for these ads, which endeavored to finish off the 1978 and start 1979 on the right foot):

I suppose its too late to get into that correspondence game?

Zach, I really have enjoyed this series of old ads. Kudos to you, sir.

Psi-World! Psi-World!

(I think that's the one with the guy blasting a psionic ray while holding his hands steepled next to his head. I always loved that ad.)

Totally get the same feeling you do when looking at these olds ads. It would cause no harm to post a few more from time to time.

I agree with Olman, a few more every once in a while would be cool. These are fun.

Yeah, I'd be ok with that as well.
