The Nuts & Bolts of PBM

The Nuts & Bolts of PBM was a magazine dedicated to play-by-mail games, first published in June 1980 by Bolt Publications, and edited by Richard J. Buda.


The Nuts & Bolts of PBM was a review, tactics, and news magazine about play-by-mail games.[1]


W.G. Armintrout reviewed The Nuts & Bolts of PBM in The Space Gamer No. 48.[1] Armintrout commented that "This magazine is a disappointment. Nuts & Bolts needs contributors who have something to say and know how to say it. I can't recommend this magazine until it shapes up."[1]
