Owl & Weasel Wednesday #7 August 1975
Topics covered are the British Monopoly Championships, a set of rules for playing Frisbee (must have been the 70s) and coverage of a couple older (older even then) board games.
There is a quite a bit on Stalingrad, a game I still see played every so often.
The interesting bit is a letter from Action Games and Toys Ltd. They took exception in a page and quarter letter about the coverage from June on the London Toy Fair.
There is a letter complaining that the D&D combat system is "broken" since there is no way a goblin could ever hit a 20th level Lord with +5 plate, even 5% of the time.
Page 11 covers some more concepts in D&D like rooms and passages.
Finally there is a price list for more T.S.R. material.
Not a landmark issue by any stretch, interesting for the questionable line art, pink paper and the continued inclusion of D&D.
ETA: D&D pages.
