What's this in my KQ3 Spellbook?

Is the game being a ROYAL pain? Need a hint? Got a problem? This is the place to discuss King's Quest!

My receipt from what I bought the game at the Wherehouse on October 9, 1988!

That's from a Dot Matrix, I'm pretty sure. I remember having one of those, back in 1991 or so.

That receipt is 32 years old??? :shock: I'm sure you cleaned it up ... ;)

Hah - that one wasn't as faded as the Egghead one. I could actually still clearly read it.
And I think everyone had the "buzz buzz brrrrrrrrrrrrrttt buzz buzzz" matrix printers back then! :lol:
