More Information Edit | History

This was the final issue of Interplay magazine, and one of the last items published by Metagaming Concepts, Inc. The "Coming Next Issue" (never published) column read:

"The designer's introduction to STARLEADER didn't make this issue, see it next time. We will have more Trailblazer, TFT and Helltank pieces so save the reading time for it.

Next issue may see the format changes that have been discussed before. The options are, keep INTERPLAY as is at a $2.00 price, go to 48 pages with thicker cover and interior pages for $2.50, or go to very good quality 64 pages at $3.00 but go to quarterly issues. If you have strong opinions on any of these options let us know your feelings, a postcard will suffice."

The "Coming Distractions" article acknowledges that the issue was late due to Metagaming moving to new offices, and mentions rumors that something had happened to Metagaming Concepts. It goes on to plug what would pretty much be the last two releases from Metagaming, the microgames HELLTANK DESTROYER and STARLEADER: ASSAULT! The latter was to be the first in a new series of sci-fi boardgame/RPG hybrids (like THE FANTASY TRIP). It also mentions the supposedly upcoming STARLEADER WARPSHIPS, CONQUERORS OF UNDEREARTH and IN THE NAME OF JUSTICE (a superhero RPG).
