Red Sea Crossing Ad

Recommended Posts

I can certainly try to take a better picture tomorrow, though my camera does has limits. A scanner would be better. Since the library does not allow periodicals to be removed we'll probably have to wait until someone finds a personal copy of the magazine to get a scan.

Allright, then we just need someone who has a laptop to get involved. Doesn't have to be in Sacramento. I'm sure there are other copies in libraries around the country*.

 

*Possibly Canada too. :)

This title is quite widely held by Canadian libraries; the list is too long to post here. If anyone wants to know about a specific city or province, please PM me for details.

 

It might also be interesting to search for ads for "Music Machine". As that was produced in conjunction with a major religious record label (what is now Sparrow), I expect that it would have been very well advertised.

Just tear the page out of the mag when no one is looking. :ponder:

Thou shall not steal.

 

I guess...

 

Perhaps it can be borrowed when you explain the situation?

I'm going to try and get a copy of this through my college's library system and then scan the ad. It may take a week or two.

Hey there, look what I found at the library today:

 

post-2163-0-86631300-1314128906_thumb.jpg

 

Christianity Today. October 7, 1983. Page 51.

 

Found at the Sacramento State University library. Incidentally I was really surprised to have found the ad so easily. I just decided to go to the library, thinking it would be a long shot. Christianity Today was literally the first publication I searched. It seems to be a fairly prominent magazine, so I'm surprised none of us knew about this game before 2007. I thought maybe there might be a small classified ad about the game, and I certainly did not expect a full page color ad given the game's obscurity.

 

Now who's going to be the first to track down the coloring book and audio cassette?

 

I can't thank you enough for finding this ad, I figured someone would eventually find some physical evidence even though I thought it was proven beyond a doubt. Yes, I will accept all apologies from all the members who made me feel like a scammer! Now maybe this find will be fun again. I have kept the cartridge safe, I figured I couldn't sell it until it was proven to be real. I figured the only way of that happening was for someone to find the ad that Steve talked about. I thought and accepted that it might never happen.

Time to PM Marco. ;)
