Challenge CD ROM?
 
Is there a CD that has all the back issues of Challenge? I didn't see one listed at Traveller5.net

The Classic Traveller CD I bought from FFE has Challenge 25 - 36, and JTAS 1 - 24, along with Best of JTAS 1 - 4. Along with two indexes. One is a pdf, the other a spreadsheet.

I looked through the folders on my computer, no Challenge before issue 25.

But thanks for the reply :)

Challenge 25 was the first issue of Challenge. GDW continued the numbering of JTAS but changed the name and format of the magazine when they went to Challenge.

Ah, that explains it. I barely knew of Traveller back in the 1980s.
The majority of the people at the 3 game stores in Biloxi and Gulfport were playing d&d games or some SF board games.

You're welcome.

As mentioned, JTAS ran issues 1 through 24. Challenge Magazine ran issues 25 through 77, and then abruptly ended publication between issues 77 and 78 when GDW went out of business in 1996 (~year?).

I've heard rumors that SJG began publishing their own version of CM, but I can't find it on their website.

At least we learned the identity of The Lady In Black.

SJG published JTAS online for their Traveller tenure.

The JTAS-OL content will (eventually) be on a CD-Rom.

GT Disk 2 has "Best of the [GURPS] JTAS Vol 1"

The full GT-JTAS Online came on a Clip Flash Drive with my copy of Grognard from the Kickstarter.
