Nintendo Power Dragon Warrior Strategy Guide 1989

Recommended Posts

I'm new here and I've tried to search for this item but I didn't have any luck. I apologize if I'm asking in the wrong forum but I've been looking for the Nintendo Power 1989 Dragon Warrior Strategy Guide insert for a while now. I remember having the guide as a kid and loving the artwork inside. Would anyone happen to have an active torrent for a scan of the guide. Thanks so much in advance!

I enjoy the artwork in the Dragon Warrior Explorer's Guide. I am new to this site, but i know there is a way to download this guide from here. I might have it in stacks somewhere, but I think someone has already scanned it with more of a pristine quality then I could offer.

Thanks for the reply. The cover of that book looks different than the old Strategy Guide I used to have but the artwork inside looks the same. Thanks for the heads up. I'll keep an eye out for the scan.

I'd hate to put you out by having you scan in your book. I certainly wouldn't mind having the book but considering that I mostly want the scan for nostalgia sake, I think I'll keep looking for the original Strategy Guide and save you the trouble. Thanks so much for the offer though.

By the way, I've included a screenshot of the cover of the SG just in case it jogs someone's memory.

MY GOD! I have never seen that before. The first one shown is the one I have but the official Strategy Guide I have never seen. I've got to get my hands on that magazine. Off to eBay *poof*

This is an old thread, but it's my policy to revive a topical thread, rather than starting a new one that covers much of the same.

After downloading 'Nintendo Power, Vol. 9', I find that it is missing this insert ('Dragon Warrior Strategy Guide'; I presume that the other similar inserts are also missing for future issues. I tried the download link in this thread, but it is dead.

Does someone have this scan to add to the Nintendo Power archive, as a supplement to Vol (Issue No.) 9? Does someone have an archive of the other Player-Guide inserts? I recall seeing a mention that 'Nintendo Power is done', which is at present still untrue, as the inserts, strategy guides, Player's Guides (the small and large format guides) and some assorted publications (e.g. 'Tips & Tactics') are still missing.

I'm also curious if there is a torrent established for this section, and if there is any rule prohibiting it, as it would be far simpler than MegaUpload and such services that have a download cap and a parallel transfers limit. If there is no torrent established, and there is no objection, I may generate a torrent (which I will link here) for selections of mags to easily download certain sets or groupings.

Anyhow, I would like to be able to have the 'Dragon Warrior' insert, if anybody still has it to re-upload. Many thanks for all the amazing work!

I'm quite confused about this, because I downloaded this and a couple other supplements to early Nintendo Power mags from this site (and it had to be this site, because the .cbz has the Retromags identifier page in its archive) back in February but I'll be darned if I can find the download locations now. E-day, any idea where these went? The file names were coded as "supplement_### - (supplement name)" if that helps.

i see that this is a very old topic that has already been revived once, but it fits what i'm asking and doesn't seem completely answered.

I've been trying to find the Super Mario Bros. 2 "Inside Out" tip book published as part of Nintendo Powers #7 and 8 but haven't been able to locate it. Does anyone have it scanned yet, and if so, how can i get a hold of it?

this obviously refers to other "mini strategy guides" too, like the Dragon Warrior one mentioned above.
