Owl & Weasel Wednesday #13 February 1976
Over on the Editorial page they celebrate 1 year of the Owl & Weasel. They mention a few of the places you can now get O&W and call out one hobby store that doesn't carry them. They also talk about NOT wanting to go bi-monthly (as White Dwarf will do in the future) asking for more letters and submissions. "SF/F" (Sci-Fi/Fantasy) games are the big rage now. They will continue to use this term well into their White Dwarf days till eventually being replaced by the more common RPG.
Page 3 gives us a review of Cartel the American Stock Market Game. I remember this game and I think I have seen it at previous game auctions. Other games discussed are Top Rat and Rail Way Rivals.
The British International Toy Fair in Brighton is covered. I looked for games that a.) might have survived to today and b.) any indication of the coming RPG and Video game booms. But really nothing.
Page 10 features a great little "coupon" for The D&D Society. Send in your name, address and whether or not you have designed your own dungeons to the O&W and they will send you 10 character sheets! That's a bargain at any price.
Page 11 gives us a handy index to games covered and what issues they appeared in. Dungeons and Dragons is covered in issues 5 through 12.
Back cover has items for sale including a Games Workshop sweatshirt. Either Medium or Large and the the prince is only £3.25.
