Started life as an En Garde game in The Tinamou, was then a subzine in Ripping Yarns and went independent when RY disappeared (hence issue 9 was the first independent issue). Broadened its appeal by running various boardgames apart from En Garde, and established an early reputation for game reviews. Early issues of C&T were a true partnership with Glyn writing the editorials and game reviews, while Derek managed the zine. Tragedy struck in March 1988 with Glynís sudden death. Cut & Thrust continued much as before, the use of reliable external GMs and other contributors together with the fact that it was a visually attractive zine has made a notable success. For a time Dane Maslen co-edited C&T with Derek (Nos. 132 Ė 153).
