How not to launch a new FRP game system

Yes, this 1982 publication of Judges Guild, complete with confusing-yet-humorous Fay Wray - King Kong switcheroo, was the launch of a new Univeral Fantasy System in the wake of JG's loss of licensure to produce D&D product.  Nothing says "ready to square off with AD&D" like a game system spearheaded by the efforts of an undersized, fuzzy purple-slippered primate.  I'll be reviewing this gem tomorrow in another Grab Bag Retrospective, but for now, the shrink wrap stays on.  Wish Kong luck, fellas -- looks like Fay is ready to play.
