Not sure what forum to post this in so it's going here.

I just got a copy of Terra prime and it has a pretty good set of mold in the box and on some of the cardboard. Any recommendations on how to at least kill this mold. My wife really want's me to through it out.

A diluted bleach solution should kill it. Leave it out in the sun after.

While it's mentioned on that list, mould spores are notoriously hard to get rid off. Drying the item, using bleach (carefully, especially on glossy paper which if wetted is almost certainly going to be ruined) and UV irradiation (at much stronger levels than are found in sunlight) may kill the mould but not damage the spores. Leaving a mouldy product next to a non-mouldy product is an invitation for the spores to spread and grow at the first instance of excess moisture.
