The very first edition of Sega Mania Magazine. This version was never released to the public and was limited to 40 copies. These copies were sent to prominent members of the retro gaming community to gain exposure.
Aside from the numerous spelling errors, there are a few differences between this edition and the final public edition. A few articles were cut from this version before release, and some changes to the language were made (namely the reduction in profanities as Tim got a bit carried away!). There are also some design differences present.
This issue was sent with a letter and a random ’90s Panini Sega SuperPlay card as a nostalgic gift.
