In my opinion Gamer's Guide is worth very little, if any; I'd be VERY intersted in the Judges Guild retailer magazine, however  :P

Not sure on the JG item.  I have one and didn't pay much for it but really don't know how difficult it is to find.

Gamer's Guide is probably worth $1-$2.

Curious about the Gamer's Guide, does it have anything Judges Guild related in it?

Gamer's Guide has nothing Judges Guild related inside it.

It was a generic games publication that offered in-house reviews of the then current new role-playing or board/war games along with interviews of game publishers, and/or other luminaries in the industry.

I'd like to add that the 'retailer magazine' seems to me more a selling pamphlet for retailers, not a periodical. I have never seen any trace or mention anywhere of a JG trade magazine. But I'm interested nonetheless, I love to read publications for Game Retailers of the Golden Age of RPGs  :P

Is that just a catalog or it includes some material about selling these games?

Inside front cover shows a map and picture of the Judges Guild storefront (Looks like a neighborhood house to me)
Last two pages are the order sheets with shipping form.

Each page offers a picture of the cover of product with a paragraph detailing what the product is and the suggested retail price along with a stock (ordering) number.
This issue has mostly Juges Guild Fantasy, but also includes:
Three DragonQuest adventures (Magebird Quest, Heroes and Villains, Star Silver Trek)
The Nightmare Maze of Jigresh (an Empire of the Petal Throne Adventure)
Break in at Three Kilmoeter Island (a Villan and Vigilantes adventure)
Two pages of Traveller products.
One page with 4 Issues of Pegasus Magazine reviews (Issues 1-4, but no pictures of these).

I think that Gamer's Guide is worth very little. However, I'm  intersted in the Judges Guild retailer magazine.
