Description Edit | History

A very early gaming magazine which predates Dragon, The Space Gamer was originally published by Metagaming. Steve Jackson (I) acquired it from Metagaming and produced high quality issues for many years starting with issue 27, first as The Space Gamer through issue 50 and 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.

After being incorporated into The VIP of Gaming, which evolved into Space Gamer/Fantasy Gamer, 3W (World Wide Wargames) changed the name back to Space Gamer for issues 86-87 (Vol. 2, Nos. 1-2 in their numbering system). See: Space Gamer for more historical details.
