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.
I am proud to share the second version of Flyer Fever (Tumblr-free in 2021) where you can browse over 4,000 video game flyers dated from 1971 to 1991, although I recently made a big decision.
My collection is expanding to include ‘newer’ flyers with discretion, focusing on video game series and sequels that were released in the 1990s through to the present day.
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 two decades, my flyer collection wouldn’t be what it is today. This website is a result of Gin’s time and effort 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.
Since Flyer Fever is strictly for my personal collection, I don’t post video game flyers that belong to other collectors or that are found on the Internet. If you have flyers or anything else that tells a story about video game history, I recommend you consider donating your materials to the Video Game History Foundation, or the National Videogame Museum.
