I recently bought a couple of issues of this magazine published in the UK and it was a very interesting and witty read as usual (I really like the British way of writing in newspapers and magazines - the only magazine I buy regularly is The Economist  :wink: ). How many issues were put out before the magazine folded and the staff (Paul, Tim and Wayne  :D ) launched Games Master Intetnational?

Thanks. They were quite interesting and some comments showed remarkable insight (especially the one about computer games being the future of RPGs...).

It was a pretty prescient mag....I still remember an article that predicted the growth of LARPing in D&D.  Although Live Action D&D play probably isn't as large or as organized as other LARPs, still pretty cool they spent a article on it and even described one of probably the very first D&D LARP weekends that some club put on. For the late 80s this was nicely looking ahead.
