 Another ad for a game that I never realized was a game when I was a kid. I must not have even read the text, but I sure remember the picture. Attack of the Mutants was a board game released by Yaquinto Publications, who were only around for a few years (1979-1983).The game was a campy hex and counter war game where the heroes are pitted against newly mutated monsters, transformed by a horrible nuclear accident at a nearby power station (the Big Melt-Down of 1993). Below is a photo of the game contents. The game fetches a nice price if you can find it.

  1. Ordered it and was totally let down when I got it. Well, maybe not as bad as the flat Roman toys soldiers I got form the incredible ad drawn by Russ Heath.

    Total let down city,

  2. I didn't realize Russ Heath did the art for that art. It totally sold it. I really wanted the Roman Set. I'll have to throw that one up soon.
