           the month in brief

  honestly, my personal headliner
  reached me in venlo, when arrogance
  of x-ray, the editor of 'bildzeitung'
  told me how he got the antichrist
  interview, which you could read in
  the third issue.
  i was told by him, that antichrist
  sent the interview without being
  asked for, that means, the questions
  and answers were both made by anti-
  christ himself !
                    nice job, oliver!

  further headliners this month are

  - transcom & x-ray coop split up

  - thor/rnd was really busted by the

  - gotcha left talent

  - german plk's will be closed in

    detailed informations.

   (+) for the first-release charts !

     to be first or not to be first

 welcome to this months first release
 charts. hopefully this month the
 charts will look more objective due
 to the fact that there has been more
 releases this month.

 the rules are simple, over the month
 we watch 3 top boards and note the 1st
 releases. in the case of two groups
 releasing the same game, the group
 that has there version on a majority
 of the 3 boards first gets the point.

 with random close behind. there is
 also a couple of new entries. there
 isn't to much movement here because
 of the shortage of games released!
