Save For Half episode # 28: "Space Patrol by Gamescience"

Space, the final frontier... or the first, as far as RPG space gaming went. Gamescience's Space Patrol beat Traveller to the punch in 1977, but was lost in the shuffle of its better known rival's little black books. But this little game has some good points to consider, even for today's jaded gamer. Listen in as we cover aliens, planets, a startling lack of starships...and equipment with no cost?

Another game I've never heard of, but one that , at least for the references list etc, I'd like to see. Plus the use of 'luck' sounds interesting.

Again thanks for posting it
