Good to be back and posting covers again, thanks to everyone for supporting me through the dark times! You all get a cookie!

HEY! GET OF ME TORTOISE! Click for full image

Piper Comments: It isn’t exactly fantasy/science fiction. It’s psychology. The longer you look the more insane it gets (E.G. Eagle heads in crystals).

So much awesomeness! Click for full image

Good Show Sir Comments: Unfortunately I never got to play this, I like to think it would be just as epic as the box art.
Published 1988

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning!

    Top one: that’s how you sell crystals, Uri Geller! Do yours make little musical notes? I think not.

    Bottom one: Warwick Davis tries to make up for being the gooseberry on his own cover by taking up welding.

    @admin: ah, no thank you! I already have directories FULL of cookies!

    Top one: my Geology professor suffered an interrupted field laboratory because a geriatric hippie lady in a Volkswagen had insisted all of the student’s hammering was disturbing the crystals. I imagine this must be her view of the Earth.

    Bottom one: based on their poses, this seems to be some rhythm dance game. I wonder what the music would have been…?

    Top one: When you have the chance to replace a footstool with a turtle just do it.
    Bottom one: Where is the McGuffin baby?

  4. SI Says:

    Bottom: At least the witch in the background is being kept busy with holding the title up.

    And the Kurgan asks, “Wait, was I in this movie?”

  6. Tom Noir Says:

    MY GOD. It’s full of eagles!

  7. FeařofMusic Says:

    So apparently a fashionable footstool is indispensable when freeing your eagle from that cursed plastic packaging it comes in. Actually it looks a bit like an eagle Pez dispenser. I might have had that one.

    That is a truly epic ting! going on with Madmartigan’s sword. And the queen in the back there looks decidedly masculine. I can hear David Naughton screaming at a bobby ‘The queen is a man! Aren’t you going to arrest me?’

    Is that a book, or as the title suggests, an actual game?

    “Leave the head and the hands non-ghostlike.”

  9. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Love Is In the Earth (top book) has a sticker over it and reads, ‘THE U****CE BOOK DESCRIBING THE’. I wonder what’s covered up?


    Other suggestions?

  10. Tat Wood Says:

    Top One: I’m not going to be able to hear John Paul Young’s 1978 hit without see it from now on.Presumably they completed the set with Love Is In The Fire and Love Is In The Water.

    Bottom One: was there an RPG of ‘Ewoks: Caravan of Courage’ as well?

  11. DaveM Says:

    Blue crystals? Stay the heck away from blue crystals, no good ever comes from them. Either you end up with a giant invisible spider on your back, or you get a creepy duplicate that asks everyone where your dead child is.
    Blue crystals? Just say no!

    As for the second one, glad it says “tor books” in the corner or I’d swear it was the cover of a generic 80’s rpg.

  12. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @DaveM: according to the infallible Vimeo, it is a board game. I wonder if we could start a game in this discussion thread? 😉

  13. Tom Noir Says:

    Not it!

  14. Jaouad Says:

    Does the Willow game involve putting your head and hands through holes in a piece of cardboard and waving them around while making faces like an Evil Queen?

  15. A.R.Yngve Says:

    The Willow Game… is it a book, or is it a game?
    Nah, it’s just junk.
