TSR Catalog, 1981

As part of a recent purge of the Hasbro game archives, I've acquired a copy of the TSR product catalog from 1981. It's completely charming. It's all of 8 pages long, and almost everything in it is a classic of the genre.

Not so the cover. The front shows a pile of treasure and the wizard Morley, one of the goofiest corporate mascots ever. He's drawn in cel animation style, all purple and pink. Morley looks like a sports team mascot. I'm fairly sure the hardcore player base hated him.

I'll see about posting a scan and/or summary of the contents in a couple days, if people are curious.

Yes, please do! I was just thinking about the TSR catalog with the dungeon door on the front. I think it was the 1980 catalog... I think I still got one somewhere.

Oh, for the simple days...
