This is the page for Sweep of History Games Magazine, an e-zine about games and history, Issue 3 was the last issue.
Issue 3 (Fall '06) is available in PDF and not-much-formatted HTML. This link will lead you to a separate page where I have placed a hit counter to get some idea of how many downloads occur.
Issue 2 (Spring '06) is available in PDF format ( optimized to < 500K). This link will lead you to a separate page where I have placed a hit counter to get some idea of how many downloads occur.
Issue 1 is available in PDF Format (you may have to download this in order to read it, I get an error in Firefox) or the (largely unformatted) HTML version. Because neither WordPerfect nor Word 2003 can successfully convert the file to .DOC format, a .DOC version is unavailable!
