|Now that the scanning is over, I want to take a few minutes to recognize a few people for their contributions in making this project possible, mainly by donating issues:
- Bernard Dy, who donated the great majority of the scanned issues (about 140!)
- Brad Frohock
- Ken Cavanaugh
- Rodney Lelah
- Bill Haworth
- Kerry Timm
- Eleanor Howell
- Paul Smith, who provided the last three missing issues
- And everyone who donated to make this happen
Hopefully I haven't missed anyone!

|Well, after almost exactly a year and a half and 33,544 additional scanned pages, the CGW scanning project is now complete. Every single issue of the magazine's 25 year run is available online, from #1.1 in November 1981 to #268 in November 2006. The total, including the two issues of Computer Game Forum: 40,982 pages!
|28 June 2012
|I added another 21 issues today, all the way to #268, the last issue in November 2006. The CGW scanning project is almost complete, with just a few holes to fill remaining: issue 109, 111, 113, 246, and 259, as well as a few pages from issue 234. I already have the first three issues, and the last three should be here shortly.
|6 May 2012
||Complete up to 2004
|I added five more issues today, 241-245, which now means that the entire set of issues from 2004 is available online. Only 2005 and 2006 to go, and the three "orphan" issues from 1993.
|22 April 2012
||The end is near!
|Almost there... I've just finished up with 20 more CGW issues, bringing the scanned collection all the way to #240 - July 2004. Only 28 more issues to go (plus 109, 111, and 113) until all CGW issues have been scanned in!

||Wasteland 2 Kickstarter
|I don't usually do much cross-promotion, but thought I would make an exception today. For old school gamers who played the classic game Wasteland during the 1980s, or even for those who enjoyed Fallout 1 and 2 during the late 1990s, Interplay founder Brian Fargo has put up a Kickstarter web page for a sequel to Wasteland. The page went live this morning.
For those not familiar, Kickstarter allows the fan-funding of projects through advance pledges. Fargo is trying to create a traditional, top-down, turn- and party-based RPG. He already has most of the original Wasteland design team on-board. Please visit Kickstarter and consider pledging to make it happen:

||Filling the gaps
|I just completed scans of issues 180, 181, and 206, as well as adding the fabulous Planescape: Torment poster to issue 186. Thanks to Phil for sending those in. As well, I've added issues 214-220. This means that with the exception of issues 109, 111, and 113 (which I do have and will be adding later), you can now get at the CGW Museum every page of every issue of CGW from 1 to 220, a 21 year run!
I was looking at previous news items it was exactly a year ago that we started scanning issues past 100. 117 new issues in one year - not bad!
|1 January 2012
||More issues for 2012
|Happy New Year everyone! To celebrate, I've added 20 more issues: 178, 194-200, 201-205, 207-213, bringing the scans all the way to April 2002. A few people have mailed me issues to scan - thank you very much. Here's what I still need:
As you can see, we're getting there!
- 1999 - 180, 181 (someone sent them but they had missing pages)
- 2000 - 186 (Planescape: Torment poster only)
- 2001 - 206
