Trivia +

Avalon Hill's early address:

4517 Harford Road, Baltimore, MD 21214

Avalon Hill created five games for the Atari 2600 but they released them just before the 1983 video game crash. Consequently, they sold poorly due to a glut of product on the market at this time and retailers were slashing orders. They can be difficult to collect, today.

Their web site used to be at http://www.avalonhill.com/
