Hello!

I am writing a little book of gaming anecdotes. There are a couple that appeared on SPI's magazines, but I would need detals and even better a press cut of the magazine, or at least good references. Can anybody help me please?

1) In 1975, SPI publishes the hipotetical wargame Wurzburg, about a US/Soviet combat in Germany in the near future. Even nuke weapons are included. The major of Wurzburg sees the game in a local library and manages to have it retired, not to worry citizens.

2) A man played a SPI monster game - War in Europe? - for weeks in his basement or garage. Then his wife entered, emptied ashtrays, threw away empty beer cans and cleaned up. Including putting all the counters divided by color at the side of the huge table. When he went back home and discovered that, he stabbed her.

Thanks so much!

Andrea
