Adventure Gaming was launched in 1981. The founding and continuing editor of Adventure Gaming was Tim Kask, long of TSR and founding editor of The Dragon. Adventure Gaming was based in Norwood, Ohio.

W. G. Armintrout reviewed Adventure Gaming in The Space Gamer No. 45. Armintrout commented that "As of now, Adventure Gaming is a colorless publication that hasn't gotten itself off the ground. The only reason for subscribing would be if you have a personal motive for helping an all-hobby magazine survey. I don't recommend it."
