We had a flood in our basement awhile back which destroyed some of the gaming things that I had.
One item that was destroyed was the MWAN terrain issue. All about building items for the gaming table.
Does anyone know where I can get a copy? I tried Noble Knight but nothing there.
Any help would be great.

There are quite a few of them in PDF on Wargame Vault.

Its one of the older issues – Number 33 published in 1988

We hope to have all of the older issues of both MWAN and The Courier scanned and in PDF available by the end of the year.

If you mean MagWeb, alas, we did not have #33 up. We had from 65 through the last issue 133, but only 16 of the issues between 1 and 63.

Those early issues (as were many other magazines from early days) were diabolically difficult to scan and perform OCR on to come up with clean text (oh the typos that slipped through!).

If you scanned a page as an image, it took up a considerable amount of space -- slow downloads in an era of 28.8 and 14.4 modems. If I recall (dangerous), a 14.4 modem downloaded files at 1K per second (?). When we scanned in jumbo-sized maps of a few hundred K, we warned folks ahead of time and also made smaller versions.

Anyway, much different now with broadband speeds and plentiful storage space, but then again, it's been 28 years from MagWeb's start in 1996 and 10 since its closing in 2009.

Look forward to it Steve – there are a few of the early issues I am missing
