I'm already haunted by a malevolent spirit. But at least she does the laundry.

Don't see that one very often... Rumor has it that there's a terrible curse awaiting anyone who opens the shrink...

:lol:

I've seen it go for $150-200 in the shrink, and that was about 10 years ago.

They never seem to appear on the market. I consider it an excellent investment.

Oh, I'm sure it's rare...and quite funny by 21st century standards.  The auto-erotic trance of the girl on the cover is quite enough to offend.  The black magic part was just a bonus. :lol:

One wonders why they didn't release a White Magic kit.  Seems logical that white witches would want to counter their enemies' spells.  

Probably never sold enough to cause a fuss....also, the "Satan Is In Your Closet" church seminars were not really started at that time.  People probably thought, "It's just a game."

Nice pickup.

I would really like to know that as well. Maybe Frank can tell us how many of those he has seen in all his auction days. I am thinking not too many survived if there were ever that many sold.

   For sure.  Talk about a niche market!

I useta see one or two a year back in the '80s.
In the '90s it was down to one every couple o' years.
Now they never come up.

Just put in on your 'general alert' list -- if you run across one (even opened & incomplete) at a HalfPriceBooks, yard sale, antique mall, or whatever... grab it, even at $50+.

(Happy to bring something to your attention that's out of your usual sphere...)

Every time someone mentions French game stores and gaming products, it strikes me as funny.  I don't know why.
