A magazine focusing primarily on fantasy role-playing topics. The magazine was published by Judges Guild from 1976 to 1981. Later issues typically included an adventure or a dungeon.
The title printed on the cover varied throughout the 25-issue run. The first two issues were titled solely "Judges' Guild" and were spartan newsletters. The title appeared as "Judges Guild Journal" on issues 13, 14, 17, and 18. Early issues were published in "newspaper" format.
The first five issues were enumerated as "installments" and received a letter code (this confusingly begins with "Installment I" - for Initial). The sixth issue was enumerated as "Issue 3 (N)"; the seventh issue was enumerated as "Issue 6 (O)". The eighth and subsequent issues were enumerated with a number (this begins with "Issue 7") - though the combination continued occasionally (for example, "Holiday Issue 12 (U)").
