EGM #1 Inserts

Recommended Posts

Hi all.. been a while since I logged on. :) I've scanned a few magazines on this site including EGP (pre-EGM mag), EGM with Fabio on the cover and some other one I think (1988 Buyers Guide?)

I recently visited my mom's house and in my room picked up a number of mags I had forgotten about and in it included the premiere issue of GamePro, and EGM #1 as well. My EGM #1 still has the inserts intact which are a Magmax poster and the "Electronic Gaming Monthly Tip Booklet".

Were these inserts ever scanned? While I doubt I could scan the poster, the tip booklet is doable and could be done without having to remove it from the magazine. That said, it's just a bunch of standard codes for each game (mostly NES).. e.g. the Mike Tyson "Another World circuit" codes etc. Not sure if it's even all that interesting. :P Anyway.. lemme know. ;)

I do not remember seeing any of those inserts in our scan of the first issue of EGM. If you can scan the booklet, that would be great. I don't expect you to ry scanning the poster since that would mean removing it from the magazine.

I noticed some subscriber only issues have extra content inside. I wonder wasn't there a newsletter prior to EGM? Maybe it was somehow a subscribed to issue? Eighter that or the newsstand version had the extra stuff.

I got it off the newstand.. I didn't subscribe to EGM until maybe a year later. But ok man I'll go ahead and scan, shove it on a public dropbox and put it here for the experts to package. :)

I know I'm a little slow/leisurely, but it'll get done. I also have a number of early EGM's that don't appear to be scanned yet.

EGM was previously known as "Electronic Game Player" one of which I scanned for retromags a number of years ago. I don't know how many issues of that there are but it wasnt many.. if you look at the scan, one of the subscription page has pictures of supposedly past issues.. but who knows. . But also yeah as someone mentioned I think subscribers to EGM early on maybe got some kind of flyer or newsletter of Quarterman also.
