The original Steve Jackson game "Battlesuit" came out in the January 1983 issue 59 of "The Space Gamer" magazine. I was three years old at the time. I have been looking for a copy for almost that long. Long time readers might remember the significance of this game to me from this post.
At long last, I have laid hands upon not only Issue 59, but the subsequent issue 60 (a must, as it has the corrected counters required to play the game correctly) of The Space Gamer. It would not be an exaggeration to say I have sought this for my entire adult life. And nearly all of my childhood life.
It's that big a deal folks.
I will probably come up with some way to play this with miniatures soon, and you can count on photography of it when it happens.
