Vintage Tabletop: Marvel World Adventure Playset (1975)

Straight out of the Bronze Age of comic books comes this cool Marvel board game from Amsco. Hell, even if I never got to play with the thing it’d be worth owning one just to have as a model. Look at the picture on the box and see what I mean:

This thing is so cool I’m even willing to overlook the glaring grammar error in the list of locales. See if you can spot it:

  • Baxter Building
  • Daily Bugle Offices
  • Peter Parker’s Apartment
  • Avenger’s Town House(!)
  • Dr. Strange’s Mansion
  • The Negative Zone
  • Fantastic Four Air Car
  • Working Elevator
  • Secret Trap Door

Here is what the original, shrink-wrapped contents look like:
