COMIC BOOK WAR GAMES
A G.I. BATTLE GAME BY
HELEN OF TOY, CO.
The Woods Edge G.I. Battle Game from Helen of Toy featured 88 3D G.I. figures by GIANT (evidently in two colors - Green/Olive & Gray), a Playmat, and according to the Ad above, "2 Die Calculators" which were evidently Spinners of some sort according to the directions. The precise look of these Die Calculators is still a mystery until we find a more complete Woods Edge Game.
The Ad above seems to have come from an old Wonder Woman comic that was likely printed sometime after 1963 because the Zip Code space is requested on the order Form and Zip Codes were not utilized until 1963.
The photo below shows close ups of some of the GIANT G.I. figures found in both the Woods Edge and the Tank Trap War Games by Helen of Toy.
Also seen below is a partial Woods Edge Game including some GIANT G.I. figures in both colors, Original Box, Playmat and also the "Free CHESS Game" which was offered in the later Ads as a Premium (and seems to be made of a simple paper board with pop-out play pieces.)
A great contributor sent us the original directions for Woods Edge which gives a very good idea of what the game included and exactly how it was played.
