i couldnt do a search on the old topic of The Adventurers so I opened a new one..

How many are there? From which dates? What's on the covers? Do we have a certain list? Do we have images of covers?

What happened to the mojo request of getting all The Adventurers, how many did mojo get? Does mojo have scans of the covers?

Ok here we go (again) :)

- 13 issues were released (No. 1-14).
No. 13 doesn't exist because "13" is a unlucky number.

#01 Fall 1990 - Secret of The Luftwaffe cover

#02 Spring 1991 - Star Wars goes Nintendo cover

#03 Fall 1991 - Indy in Atlantis cover

#04 Spring 1992 - X Wing cover

#05 Fall 1992 - Day of The Tentacle cover

#06 Spring 1993 - The Dig cover

#07 Winter 1994 - Tie Fighter cover

#08 Summer 1994 - Full Throttle cover

#09 Winter 1994/95 - Dark Forces cover

#10 Summer 1995 - Mortimer cover

#11 Winter 1995 - Afterlife cover

#12 Summer 1996 - Outlaws cover

#14 Winter 1996 - Star Wars Rebellion cover

Issue #1-6 are newspaper like,
#7-14 are like manuals.

Some cover scans are here:

No idea about the status with mojo.

Hope it helps :)

Go here (http://web.archive.org/web/19961223150607/www.lucasarts.com/static/adventurer) if you don't have any copies but want to know what the contents are like. Shame LucasArts don't still do 'em.

You're seasonal avatar is brilliant Gabez.
I feel festive already, altogether now 'keelhaul with bows of holly....'

Lol, by sheer chance I have the first adventurer. It was in my copy of Loom I bought from the USA, I didn't know it was in the package cos the seller didn't say so and it wasn't in the photo.

i know what you mean, three of the adventurers i have were a surprise after i opened the box :)

I completly freaked when I bought the old disks versions of MI 1 and 2 and in the first box was the first adventurer and it wasnt in the pic on ebay.

I especially like number four on the list. It's got a certain contemporary flavor to it with this "Everytime you masturbate, God kills a kitten" joke running around the Net.

I like number 5 - "It doesn't have the word 'Quest' in the title" the most.

12-06-2002, 06:09 PM
but Police Quest 1 and 2 own!

12-07-2002, 04:25 PM
I like police quest 1 as well, and space quest, but the joke is still funny.
