Wanted: GB Action magazine

Looking for issues 10 to 20/21 (not sure of the exact issues) of GB Action magazine, basically anything from the 1992-93 period. Bit of a long shot as it seems to be quite rare but hoping somebody has them!

I remember spending some time with Logo and using it to control the turtle but that was pretty much the limit of our interaction with technology. The sc...

Re: Is "Pit-Fighter" the worst..

Re: Your old stuff that still works?

Our famiy's Electrolux 350E vacuum cleaner - we've had it for pretty much my whole life (since the early 80s) and it still gets used every week without any problems.

Re: Answering the phone.....

Personal calls - just 'hello?' (making sure I raise the pitch of my voice on the last syllable to suggest a question!)
Work - '<Department name>, Andy speaking' (I never get calls from people in external organisations)

22. Far tougher than the Amiga quiz even though I had a Master System which shared some of the same games!

Re: tennis games

Re: Stuff you want to try even though you'd suck at it.

I wouldn't mind trying martial arts and learning some self-defence techniques but would almost certainly make an idiot of myself attempting them!
