Description Edit | History

A family of gaming magazines which started with Space Gamer, originally published by Metagaming. Steve Jackson (I) acquired it from Metagaming and produced high quality issues for many years, first as The Space Gamer then as Steve Jackson Games. The name was changed from "The Space Gamer" to "Space Gamer" as of issue 64. The last Steve Jackson Games issue was 76.

DTI (Diverse Talents, Incorporated) purchased the rights and incorporated it as a section in issues of The VIP of Gaming (issues 2-5), then published it as a separate magazine again under the name Space Gamer/Fantasy Gamer (issues 77-82).

3W (World Wide Wargames) acquired the franchise with issue 83 and changed the name back to Space Gamer for issues 86-87 (Vol. 2, Nos. 1-2 in their numbering system).

FCS (Future Combat Simulations) changed the name back to Space Gamer/Fantasy Gamer, starting with issue 88.

Better Games (Rahm and Hilmer) eventually acquired the name, and published "Volume 2" in 9 issues over several years; they changed the format to a game per issue. They have since gone to an electronic subscription site for online games based upon the games in their print run.
