From flea markets to record stores, I think I've finally assembled a complete system...

Mazel tov! Seeing that photo takes me back to the late '70s. Very nostalgic...

There is nothing like a good hunt that results in fruition. Have fun, Moedred.

Here's the manual, and the Feeling Adventuresome ad one would find with the E.T. game or elsewhere. But how did one know to call or write for the Tip Sheet and ultimately the Solution Sheet, and how much did they cost?

JJ already helpfully displayed pages from Atari Age here, minus Vol 1 # 6 page 7, which offers the tip and solution sheets for free via an 800 number. The game fell to $9.95 the next issue then was never mentioned again. Maybe it sold out?

But then... how did one acquire the Map to the World?
Edit: ohhh, it looks to be the reverse of the solution sheet.

The Raiders game features quite prominently in the documentary 'Atari: Game Over' (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3715406/) which you can watch on Netflix. There are interviews about the history of the game and then towards the documentary's end buried copies are actually dug up, making for quite the weird paradox

Great documentary, nice Raiders ending with storage boxes in a desert warehouse. (The Office did the same thing.) Nice plugs for Spielberg's next project Ready Player One and its author. He awarded A DeLorean in a contest, now I get the reference, though not the George R. R. Martin appearance.
