'...originally released on March 17, 1993...'
« on: March 24, 2013, 09:05:29 PM »
From the wikipedia article: 'Forgotten Realms: Unlimited Adventures, also known as Unlimited Adventures, or by the acronyms FRUA or UA, is a video game originally released on March 17, 1993, by Strategic Simulations, Inc.'

Did FRUA just have its 20th birthday last week, and nobody noticed?

I knew it was coming up... :o ...and yet somehow, it just slipped by without any notice.

Here's to 20 more years.

According to the files, the oldest date is 17 February 1993, with an install application added 19 June 2006 (when rereleased with Fantasy Empires and Stronghold?). Maybe its birthday was last month.  ;)

I think the most important thing to us should be when the FRUA community started. That what we should celebrate 20 years of.  ;D

Happy Birthday, FRUA!

I know I was at a big parade catching beads, vegetables, and trinkets on the 17th, but it seemed to be Irish themed for some reason.  In blurry hindsight, it would have been nice to have a FRUA float and throw dice-beads and disks.  Maybe next year when FRUA hits the legal drinking age in the US.
Some days it just doesn't pay to gnaw through the straps.

Not sure what that's about, but I'm fairly certain it was released in March.  I went and bought it the day it was released (I still remember it, actually).  After I read an ad about being able to build my own Gold-Box games sometime in December 1992, I was counting down the days.  I still have that ad somewhere.
