Flagship has been launched because the Play-By-Mail hobby needs a reliable and entertaining guide through the multiplying forests of PBM games on the market. If any one of us tries to play them all we will end up spending a fortune, sometimes for an ill-conceived game which extracts money from its players for a few turns before expiring with a sigh, sometimes for more popular games which don't happen to suit our individual tastes.
... Flagship will sort out the sheep from the goats, and keep you in touch with the latest developments. We also want to bring together players from the professional and amateur wings of PBM, who today seem to have very little contact with each other.
Flagship was published for 130 bi-monthly issues from 1983 through 2010. The magazine's primary focus was coverage of Play-By-Mail (PBM) games. Beginning in 2002 - about issue 100 - Flagship extended coverage to other types of games including traditional tabletop roleplaying.
The publisher has made various issues available in electronic format.
