Little Wars Magazine

A year after the Dungeons and Dragons role playing game entered the market in 1974, its publisher, TSR, began to publish a "house organ" known as The Strategic Review. This was a small newssheet dedicated to advertise and supplement TSR products, which also included miniature wargames. A gentleman named Tim Kask took over as Periodicals Editor and in 1975 expanded Strategic Review into a small magazine.1

That periodical was replaced in 1976 with two separate titles: The Dragon was aimed at role-playing gamers, and Little Wars was created to cater to miniature wargamers.  Little Wars magazine ran from 1976 to 1978 and ceased publication with Issue 12.  Contents of issue 13 were run as part of The Dragon's issue no 22.2
