Quoted from mbaumle:
Consider me a drooler. I first played the game in a museum in St. Louis when I was traveling out that way, and fell in love with the game. I've had my eyes out for one of these for quite some time, but I haven't been able to find one local. I love how Gottlieb was really selective about what to backlight on their backglasses, and ACD's art is so atypical for the era, it's doubly alluring.
A minor ripoff on Lord of the Rings. Gottlieb thought about releasing a "Wizard" game, AAB 5 years earlier. it had some neat scoring.
