May be wrong but never really recall this magazine ever being mentioned.

Definaltly seems to be an overlooked one. I thought it was a quite brave venture to go for the weekly market, it didnt take off, but it was an ok read every week whilst waiting for the monthly magazines.

They used to do some good articles as well - liked the one where they visited a different games shop and interviewed the customers in there

I remember having this for a while, even had the Issue 0 given away with other magazines. Always wondered what happened to it. Anyone have the low-down on the history, a timeline or something?

I have the preview issue ( cut loads of stuff out of it for a college course work! doh )

Betty Boo ( still fit now ) is on the front.

My first proper issue is no. 15 ( 1-7 Aug 91 ) 70p

I have the final issue as well, no. 48 ( 26/3 - 1/4 92 ) 75p

The back page states farewell, but that a new and revolutionary project that the staff are involved in will be launched on May 26th - cant remember anything that came after this.

IIRC, it was stupidly understaffed, so impossible to produce properly in a weekly slot.

Anyone remember when they did the scores by showing darts in a dartboard? Talk about style over function...

Oh yes, I forgot about that!

I still have some of the coverdisks in my Amiga box somewhere...

The Amiga Magazine Rack has info / scans of some of the issues, although I think only issue 0 is fully scanned on my quick look.
