I have been looking at some gaming magazines lately and was wondering if anyone knows how many issues of Game Trade News came out?

I know that Game News had at least 12 issues and 1 special issue, but I only have a few issues of the associated Game Trade News.  Does anyone know if there is an issue of Game Trade News for each issue of Game News?

The highest issue of Game Trade News that I have is number 8.

Game Trade News was a special version of Game News that included some extra pages for retailers.  They had different covers but also included the complete version of Game News as well.

I picked up a couple just to see..
The Game Trade News is actually the following:

1) Protective Mailing Cover, that on the inside lists all the games reviewd in the magazine. This is to be ripped off and displayed in the Shop.
2)Issue of Game News
3)Issue of Game Trade News stapled into the middle (to be pulled out and kept by the shop)

I do have issue 1-3 with the protective cover on, I can't remember if it had the Trade in it. I have 4-5 with the cover and trade in them and 6 with the cover but no Trade. I have a spare copy of Game Trade News 4
