WTB: Old issues of Tips & Tricks Magazine (mostly pre-1998, a few from 08-10)

1 post in this topic

Hello hello!

I’m looking for (mostly) early issues of Tips & Tricks magazine for my collection.

Condition isn’t a huge deal to me, the magazines just can’t be literally falling apart. My only requirements are that A. The cover is present and intact, and B. There are no missing pages / binding is fully intact. Otherwise, page creases, folds, minor tears, etc. are acceptable for the most part.

As for particular issues I’m looking for, this is my current collection spreadsheet; as noted in the key at the bottom, I’m looking for anything in either red or yellow.

A few things of note about “non-standard” issues: In September of 98’, T&T created a full strategy guide for Mortal Kombat 4. It was the only time they produced a standalone strategy guide. Also of note is the listing for April of 1998 – this issue was the only issue released with two different covers, one for Canada, and one for the rest of the world. I have the worldwide cover, so I’m missing the Canadian counterpart. Lastly, “Tips & Tricks” released their last numbered issue in August of 2007. Following this, they continued to release “Tips & Tricks Videogame Codebook” issues up until the final issue, in January of 2011. These issues were released less frequently, and had a lot of the features of the original magazine removed, in lieu of straight up cheat-codes and mini strategy guides.



In addition to my spreadsheet, I also have a quick-reference image of every cover from the missing issues on my list, as well as a (possibly easier to read) text list.
