User Summary
A massive and exhaustive index of every issue of several important periodicals of the 1970s, 80s, and 90s. Includes front matter, complete magazine listings, alphabetical article index (with six special topic headings), and eight appendices of special groupings including author index and magazine games. If an article or author or game supplement appeared in Ares, Fantasy Gamer, Interplay, Nexus, Space Gamer, Space Gamer/Fantasy Gamer, or The VIP of Gaming, you will be able to find the issue and page (and concise biographical data) about it in this impressive and complete index.

Publisher Description
The Space and Fantasy Gamer's Guide is a 500 page index listing all of the boardgame and RPG related articles printed in the game magazines Space Gamer, Fantasy Gamer, Nexus, Ares, Interplay and The VIP of Gaming during the 1970's and 1980's. Article entries include information such as the title of the article, author, brief explanatory comments, and a general classification of the subject matter using over 20 categories (such as designer's notes, interview, capsule review, feature review, variants, strategy, errata, scenario, etc.)

Article Index: Over 4000 articles have been indexed and organized by game name and subject. Seven appendices cover non-game related articles such as book reviews, film reviews, video games, computer games, fiction, and play-by-mail games. An author index helps you track down articles by your favorite gamers. There is also a bonus index describing the magazine games published in these magazines.

Magazine Listings: The Guide contains an issue by issue publishing summary for each magazine. These summaries list the featured article for each issue as well as notable changes in staff or format. The recurring columns and features from each magazine are also briefly described.

The Gamer's Guide is an indispensable resource for game players and collectors who are searching for variants, scenarios, and errata for classic games. The format of the Guide allows it to be conveniently used for browsing or research purposes.
