Ha, I have fond memories of abusing school photocopiers to share these things, which I think is probably why some developers adopted the red acetate trick to obfuscate the answers to the copy protection questions. Color photocopying was obviously very significantly harder to come by back then, a B&W copy wouldn't work with the red lens.

The design of the code wheels for those games that had them was often surprisingly elaborate as well.
