Richard Berg's Review of Games

Index Strategy & Tactics Moves Ares FYEO Other

A newsletter reviewing games and edited by Richard Berg. It ran for a number of issues before being folded into Moves with issue 59. Unfortunately, we are missing data on a few of the issues at present; if you have information about them, please contact me. RBROG was a 4-page 8 1/2" x 11" format newsletter (17" x 11" sheet folded in half).

N.B.: "Grapes," an industry gossip column, was uncreditted, but actually written by Howie Barasch.

Premier Issue
