Is it a fantasy, or is it reality? The answer is "yes," with Fantasy Gamer #1 (cover date August-September 1983)! This premiere issue starts the title on the right foot (or centaur hoof, or werewolf claw, or . . .).
In addition to the regular game reviews, news, and letters, this issue features a complete game: "Slasher Flick," by Donald Saxman (designer of Superhero: 2044)! This meaty two-player game pits victims against the Bogeyman in a fight to the death! It's all good tongue-in-cheek fun, but you still might want to play with the lights on.
This issue also includes alternate uses for experience points in Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (permitting new abilities for willing heroes); an overview of Origins '83, held in Detroit; a collection of "useless" tables; and more.
Whether you're a fan of old-school gaming or a historian of our hobby, each issue of Fantasy Gamer is the perfect portal to the past!
