Description Edit | History

First Encounter advertised itself as Canada's Coast to Coast Fantasy & Gaming Magazine.

It was published in the early 1980's and lasted for at least 8 issues (although more research is needed to uncover the full print run).

Unsurprisingly given the era, the magazine covered D&D extensively, but also included articles for other systems along with game reviews.

Early issues appear to have been limited to 5,000 copies according to numbers published in the magazine.

More Information Edit | History

Additional Information from excellent Tome of Treasures website:

"Another Canadian zine located in British Columbia. Wide range of gaming interests with a special focus on D&D. Packed full of lots of information. Editor and main energy behind this zine is Kelly Villemaire. A lot of the artwork is by Eric Hotz. This was produced bi-monthly with one Annual edition. Kelly Villemaire is associated with Delf Games highlighted in the NonTSR section of this website. Eric Hotz has later done some artwork for TSR, White Wolf, Columbia Games Harn World."
