Rad-Ads: Strategy & Tactics

Reading the contents of this is almost RPG's 101 for someone new to the concept. Looks like a cool concept. Each magazine came with its own little campaign.

Strategy & Tactics

The Paper Time Machine

STRATEGY & TACTICS is a magazine. It's also a tool: a time machine that enables you to replay crucial events - past, present and future - that shape our lives.
Now, instead of merely reading about what's happening; you can explore and experience the alternatives and decision points through the technique of Conflict Simulation.

What is Conflict Simulation?

Conflict Simulation is a way of analyzing a political or military conflict situation. A way that is as intellectually stimulating as a game of chess, and as thorough as a written analysis.
Through the use of Conflict Simulation (or "game") format, the conflict situation is re-created - so that you are in a position to make the vital decisions and, in the game at least, change the way things were, are, or will be.

What you get

STRATEGY & TACTICS magazine is published bi-monthly. Each issue contains
*A ready-to-play conflict simulation game with 22" x 28" playing surface, die-cut playing pieces, and complete rules.
*An analytical article on the same subject as the game in that issue.
*Other feature articles on historical and military subjects.
*Game and book reviews, commentary on existing games, and discussions on subscribers' questions.
The magazine is 48+ pages long, and all material is handled in a highly organized (and easily understandable) graphic format.
Games recently published in STRATEGY & TACTICS were: GRUNT (ground combat in Vietnam), LOST BATTLES (tactical combat in Russia, 1941-44), USN (the war in the Pacific, 1941-43), COMBAT COMMAND (tactical combat in Western Europe, 1944).
We also publish a separate line of conflict-simulating games, which you will find listed in the coupon.

Free to new subscribers

Rad-Ads: Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Video Game

I didn't even notice the dragon's shadow the first 10 times looking at the ad. Love the "kid friendly" advertisement at the bottom to soften the anti-D&D hysteria of the 80's.

ADVANCED DUNGEONS & DRAGONS: TREASURE OF TARMIN

Volume 1, the CLOUDY MOUNTAIN cartridge was only the beginning of the ADVANCED DUNGEONS & DRAGONS video game series for Intellivision. Now comes Volume 2, the TREASURE OF TARMIN cartridge. You want the treasure. And over 50 different creatures want you!

Rad-Ads: Return Of The Jedi Death Star Battle

I love the comparison from the painting to the real graphics of the game. Also, if you're piloting the Millenium Falcon, way is an X-Wing pilot shown?
