Space Gamer #29 (cover-date July 1980) presents another fascinating snapshot into the gaming hobby's yesteryear – and the articles are fun to read, too!

In addition to the game reviews, news, and letters found in every issue, this installment contains Steve Jackson's designer's notes and errata for The Fantasy Trip; the first in a series on painting fantasy miniatures; the last article giving information about how to computerize hex-maps for wargames; a fantasy short story entitled "The Temple of Life" (with stats for The Fantasy Trip and Advanced Dungeons & Dragons); and the third in the series "Game Design: Theory and Practice" (co-written by Steve Jackson). Of interest to armchair archaeologists, this issue also contains an overview of all magazines related to fantasy and sci-fi gaming (as they existed in 1980), complete with Steve Jackson's thoughts on each publication.

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!
