Gauntlet Arcade Ad

I had a couple of core friends who I hung around with in the mid-1980s. Three of us were inseparable, but we always had a rotating 4th, so when we went into the Loew’s 4 Plex near our house and spotted the 4-player Gauntlet, our jaws nearly dropped to the floor. We used all our popcorn and candy money on it and missed the first 15 minutes of Explorers. So worth it.

If you were wondering which character I played it was Thor the Warrior…and I usually needed food badly.
