Long, long missing (though not forgotten), Where We're Going launched as our stand-alone trade publication way back in 1987. We've shared archived PDFs of some of the later Where We're Going issues on our site (check them out!), but those earliest issues only exist in print . . . and as an offline collection of PDFs that we sometimes refer to when we need to check on release dates of older games and expansions.
