April 23, 2020: 35th Anniversary Of Man To Man

Man to Man

GURPS is one of our hobby's most successful roleplaying games, and like all greats, it had a beginning – Man to Man. Highlighting the combat system specifically, Man to Man was a prelude to the GURPS system, heralding decades of supplements and gaming material. 

To celebrate this notable anniversary, Phil dug up Steve's original designer's notes from Space Gamer #76, and we reposted it with some vintage images. In it, Steve talks about his philosophy behind GURPS, as well as other retro Easter eggs, like mentioning the possibility of a magazine called Roleplayer. I wonder if that ever took off
