Avalon Hill Game Catalog

Avalon Hill used to publish some wonderful game catalogs, some of which were included in their boxed games. One, which seems to be dated 11/84, is magazine length. If nothing else, AH was noted for analyzing their games to death. In fact, in this (and other) catalog, they rate the games for "complexity" and also for average game length. For the sake of completeness or nostalgia or to compare against BGG databases, some of the contents are summarized below.
