Meta-history & Background[edit]

Announced in Journal of the Travellers Aid Society No. 22, the new (at the time unnamed) magazine) was going to expand JTAS to a larger format (8.5x11) and was going to expand coverage to GDW's new game Twilight:2000, and other games. The larger size was to allow printing more interesting things, like deck plans or sector maps which would not fit in the smaller JTAS format.

In order to maintain continunity for the Traveller fans (and JTAS subscribers) the first issue was numbered 25, rather than starting again with issue 1. Also to maintain continunity, Challenge featured a separate section labeled "Journal of the Travellers' Aid", which lasted through issue 28.

Traveller articles continued to appear in the Challenge, but issues were frequently dominated by articles of other gaming systems, including Twilight: 2000, 2300AD, Space 1889, and starting with the expansion to 64 pages in issue 30, games not published by GDW.

Challenge published 53 issues (through number 77), until 1996 when the closing of GDW forced the halt publication.
