Addictive Games were also based in Bournemouth. Someone will have to dig out the address for them too :D

There you go... he used the Silicon Joy label in 1984 for games not written by him! But it was really Addictive Games based at that address on Richmond Hill (where RG towers is based) :D

Took me a while, it is a bit subtle for a depressing monday!

Probably works better if said with a heavy farmers accent. The accent being heavy not necessarily the Farmer :? .

Grand Prix Manager doesn't look so bad to me. Nowhere near as interesting personally as Football Manager or Software Star, but enough to intrigue me.

The rest all look to be instantly forgettable.

'Endorse - it'. Took me a while though. I thought it was going on about washing machines for a while there...

Along with 'Come t' Norfolk! Norfolk enchants!'... :lol:

Oh! Bugger, I was at least hoping to get a little chuckle out of it. Not really got a Dorset accent (Bournemouth & Poole are only just inside Dorset!) and all I could see was a washing machine joke too!

Oh well, back to my combine Harvester :lol:
