I was the second owner of The Arcade Flyer Archive (TAFA) for seven years, but I let it go in 2012 due to extreme burnout, depression and my inability to transform the site the way I wanted.
The theme for my life in 2014 was to begin again and I was happy to launch Flyer Fever, a website dedicated to showcasing my personal collection of coin-operated video game flyers in 1,280 pixel resolution.
Now in 2021, I am proud to share the second version of Flyer Fever (Tumblr-free) where you can browse over 3,900 video game flyers dated from 1971 to 1991, with a few exceptions.
I’ve collected about 50 flyers from 1992 and later because they promote re-releases and sequels for video games I loved in the seventies and eighties. Other flyers I collected because I like their unique graphic designs.
4,039 flyers and counting…
Special thanks to
Sur-Gin. Without Gin’s time and dedication to monitoring auction bids, transferring money and shipping flyers to me over the last eighteen years, my flyer collection wouldn’t be what it is today. This website is a result of Gin’s efforts as much as my own.
John Talarico, for inspiring me and motivating me to move forward with the second version of Flyer Fever despite my intimidation of not knowing PHP programming. The successful launch of this site wouldn’t have been possible without his friendship, generosity and exceptional programming skills.
Tim Ferrante, for writing an article about collecting coin-op arcade game flyers called Flyer Fever! in the September 1999 issue of GameRoom Magazine. It was my first experience with Tim’s magazine and serves as the inspiration for this web site.
Bochake. In 2015 and 2016, Bochake reached out to me and helped keep my data correct on early Japanese video games.
