Re: (TFT) Re: Nostalgia
Yep, what Kevin Perryman said -- you can do searches in google for "Free pd
f of _____" and quite often find things that are no longer in print. Tha
t's one way I stumbled across the "Internet Archive" which has the complete
collection of the Avalon Hill General magazine, all of the original Ares m
agazine (plus scans of the game components too), many of the old Space Game
rs (the ones not owned by SJG's anyway -- which you can still get from them
in pdf form for a reasonable price), and so on. And if any of you are l
usting after pdfs of a lot of the original OD&D/AD&D, 2nd Ed D&D, etc, allo
w me to recommend this site where you can find many of them perfectly l
egally. They also have a pretty solid collection of The Dragon/Dragon Ma
gazine, and Dungeon Magazine if you're looking for old favorite articles or
inspiration. The resources are out there, all you have to do is look ar
ound a bit! ;-) Personally, I stay away from the bit torrent sites
since I think most (if not all) of them are shady and probably illegal, bu
t different strokes, I suppose....

Everyone talking about the good ol' days thought I would post this ri
I do not know the legallity of possession of any of thes
e items, I can
just say I aquired these over the years. Not sure from
where, but they
are out there. Google - The Way Back Machine and tha
t is a good
starting point. I know besides these items I have found a
ll of the old
Space Gamers (well 80%+) of em in pdf as well as Compute a
other magazines from the late 70's and early 80's.
games from Microgaming
And TFT Games
All of these pdf's tha

copies and are great p
Several years ago, well now that I look at things closer to ten
ago, I went to CRAZY EGOR'S GAME EMPORIUM and bought a lot of the
Microgames and have them in unopened packages in a box that I pull o
from time to time and drool over. I purchased used editions at the
time that I could play. In 2012 he had to sell his big store an
discontinued his want list. However, he still runs an ebay store wh
has tons of great materials still.

Egors is his ebay store. (Talk about drooling).
I also do a lot throug
h www.DrivethroughRPG.com they have reprint rights
to publish some of th

Just keep your eyes open and hearts wanting and you will find thing
that bring back the good ol' days.
Always enjoyed running Melee/W
izard as strictly a hack-n-slash quick
in/out game session and never use
d it for roleplaying. At one time my
group would sometimes substitute
Melee/Wizard combat rules in AD&D and
Twilght 2000 games in order to ma
ke things progress quicker. So much
that can be done with the old gam
es. I remember using Micromachine cars
for CAR WARS, they were 1" in
length and fit the CAR WARS scale rules
perfectly. We would use an ol
d train table with roads, tracks, city
buildings etc to run our CAR WARS
games on. Talk about realism, so much
more than many minatures used
way back then.
Anyway, THANK YOU EVERYONE for giving me some repreive
from the daily
grind and bringing back so many great memories.
care and HAVE FUN! Life is to short to worry about Would of, Could
f, Should of, just do it and have fun doing it and that is all that
