As part of preparing for the Pocket Box games campaign on Kickstarter, we pulled old catalogs from the archives and reviewed the contents. Diving into those Steve Jackson Games catalogs from the eighties was a real treat, and today I'd like to share several of the pages from the summer 1983 catalog. 1983? That feels like decades ago!
First up, of course, has to be the Car Wars series! Of the items listed in the above image, only Autoduel Quarterly failed to make the cut for admission into the project. Car Wars, Truck Stop, and Crash City (the name change from Sunday Drivers was a trademark thing back in the eighties) are all a part of the Pocket Box games campaign. Personally, my old Pocket Box games are pretty battered and beaten, so I'm looking forward to getting factory-fresh copies of these titles!
Next up, it should come as no surprise that we've made the original Illuminati Pocket Box a part of the project. The two expansions aren't included . . . yet! Keep an eye on the campaign stretch goals and maybe we'll surprise you.
Ogre has been getting ongoing support over the last few years, and after the release of the Pocket Ogre game in 2014, many fans have asked again and again if more of the line will be released in a classic format. While we can't keep the price as low as they were when they were new, we are happy to report that Ogre, G.E.V., and Battlesuit are all a part of the campaign. And if all goes well, we'll unlock stretch goals to add more Ogre material to the campaign.
Lastly, we have the catalog pages that show off possible additions to the ongoing Pocket Box games campaign on Kickstarter. We've already revealed Undead,
Necromancer, and Raid on Iran as stretch goals, and we'll keep revealing new stretch goals as older ones are unlocked, so . . . you know. More to come!
The Pocket Box games campaign on Kickstarter closes in less than four weeks, so please take a little time to review the campaign and consider joining us in bringing back these classic games. Your support will help us to unlock more stretch goals and bring these classics back to collections everywhere!
