Space Gamer #37 (cover-date March 1981) is three dozen pages of old-school insight - and the articles are fun to read, too!
In addition to the regular game reviews, news, and letters, this issue includes "Troubles in Valetia" (a history of a troubled play-by-mail game in the form of correspondence); a collection of interesting sci-fi weapons; a company report from Fantasy Games Unlimited by its founder Scott Bizar; alternate rules for the sci-fi wargame Freedom in the Galaxy; a slithering cinematic sci-fi scare with stats for The Fantasy Trip, Dungeons & Dragons, and Traveller; a sword-and-sorcery variant for the game Risk; the other five sins of computer-game writing; and Part 11 in the series "Game Design: Theory and Practice," co-written by Steve Jackson. (Steve Jackson is also the author of the featured review about the classic Cosmic Encounter.)
Whether you're a fan of old-school gaming or a historian of our hobby, each issue of Space Gamer is the perfect passport to the past!
