I don't suppose anyone's still seen issue 19 lurking aorund in a shop somewhere? Looks like G&G bungled *AGAIN* and never sent issue 19 to Melbourne at all! (I spotted and bought issue 20 last week). So if someone can still source me an issue 19 (plus postage) it'd be most appreciated! Yes, yes.. I know a sub would ease the problem of finding issues etc. but not everyone has that kind of pocket money in advance.
Can't you call Imagine and order a back issue?

Issue 22 is out now. Nearly missed it as the first two newsagents I tried were sold out (or never received it).

I posted a thread about this elsewhere, but don't miss the GamesTM Retro Anthology that is available again in Melbourne (originally came out last year I think). It has been re-released in a value pack with 2 other mags for $10 and is available now (anthology was $25 when new so I passed it up the first time). The top mag in the pack is an old issue of a regular GamesTM (silver in colour) and the other is a Pokemon solutions mag.

thanks for the tip.

I presume this is a "Gordon & Gotch" pack with a white paper insert?

If so - what is the name of the pack please?

If you don't want to miss an issue, you should do what I do and arrange for your local newsagent to put an issue aside for you when they arrive.
I think they must order the copies especially for me as when I get them they have a label with the newsagent's name and my name on it.

If you decide you don't want an issue you don't have to buy it. It works really well.

It's almost like a subscription but you pay as you go...

I found issue 22 in the departures lounge newsagent at brisbane international airport a couple of weeks ago. This could prove rather an expensive way to get RG, all things considered, but they did have 10-15 copies of it on the shelf.

Issue 23 I found in Mag Nation on Elizabeth St in the Melbourne CBD -- I'm guessing they would get a decent number of copies each month.

I think I've missed the new Anthology that was released. Is it still out there or was it pulled from the shelves?
