Post Posted: Fri Apr 02, 2021 8:11 am
I had no idea until yesterday that this magazine ever existed.
19 issues published between october 1987 and october 1988.
Posting scans from https://www.abandonware-magazines.org/affiche_mag.php?mag=203&page=1 of any sega master system related pages.

Issue 01 October 1987
Great article about the master system. First time I see a mention of the supposed official french distributor: "Master Games Systemes".

First time I see the first page of the Bar advertisement (you always only see the page where the guy holds the light phaser)

Also, nice advertising from Coconut with pricing on a large selection of games (for 1987): they were darn cheap !

Issue 02 from November 1987

second time they mention the french distributor "master games system" with the postal adress provided (page 121) so I suppose this was the distributor the first year in France.
