Re: Issue 132

Another great issue - I am in awe of anybody who can get their act together and write something of interest that is worthy of being in a print magazine. Love the Atari 7800 article - having owned one of these for a few years, I noticed there are a few games I now need to get :D

Re: PLAY EXPO (formerly Replay), 13-14 October 2012, Manches

We are screaming out for a 2/300 member event with a close bar and 30/40 systems - this is not what Play was about but so many members are asking for it, this should be a collective effort and I'm sure it will happen next year. Thanks again! Shaun :D If that sort of scale is your thing then you do ...

Re: PLAY EXPO (formerly Replay), 13-14 October 2012, Manches

Just watch out for theft of flash devices too - These usually fit quickly and easily into the pocket and are not cheap to replace so quite desirable...Not sure there is a great answer to this one, even for the smaller shows - unless we find a way of securing them - which might mean damaging consoles...

Re: Plans for your collection after your death?

As we all get older and these organisati...
